STAY­ING NEU­TRAL

Scuba Diving - - Head-To-Head-Testing -

BC mak­ers have done a good job par­ing in­her­ent buoy­ancy from BCS in re­cent years, even in full-fea­tured mod­els with sub­stan­tial pad­ding. None of the BCS in this year’s test had ex­ces­sive amounts of in­her­ent buoy­ancy. But with test divers try­ing mul­ti­ple BCS back to back, even rel­a­tively small dif­fer­ences in in­her­ent buoy­ancy were no­tice­able, with divers not­ing they had to add a bit of lead for BCS with a lit­tle more built-in float.
