Product feature
  1. Type of BCD
    The SUBEA SCD 500 buoyancy compensator is of the “wraparound” type: the volume of the air is distributed over the entire surface of the body that is covered, providing a significant level of buoyancy and improved support in the vertical position.This makes for greater comfort in the surface phases. The SCD 500 buoyancy compensator is designed for comfort and adjustment has been optimised by the harness with a wide front strap, a chest strap and patented braces.
  2. Unisex buoyancy compensator with patented V-shaped straps: Rgomoove concept
    The exclusive shape of the straps leave the arms free whilst providing even better support. The shape of the straps also prevents compression of the chest, making this buoyancy compensator suitable for both men and women.The buckles on the straps allow for easy and accurate adjustment thanks to their shape and size.For easy adjustment, your are advised to pull the straps from the shoulders towards the hips (the direction of the braces) rather than downwards.
  3. Ease of use
    The drain tabs have been moved forwards: on the chest for the upper drain, and on the belly under the right-hand pocket for the lower drain. Their shape and the choice of neon yellow also make for an easier grip (by the diver or a mate). The openings of the two side pockets have been lowered for easier access.Two loops are also provide to secure a pressure gauge or to hold the octopus so that it is always within easy reach.
  4. Carrying comfort
    For added comfort, SUBEA design teams have developed reinforced back padding on the back of the buoyancy compensators to cushion the tank. The braces are also padded for more suppleness on the shoulders. The front strap contains elastic parts so that the vest fits perfectly on the back and hips.
  5. Accessories to attach and store everything you need in safety!
    Five rings: one 3D anodised ring on each shoulder, two 3D anodised rings on the hips and one PVC ring inside the pocket. Two releasable weight pockets each holding up to 2.5 kg. The chest strap has a built-in whistle to call for help on the surface. Two loops are also provide to secure a pressure gauge or to hold the octopus so that they are always within easy reach.

  10. Storage advice
    It is important to store all diving equipment well clear of sources that produce ozone (electric motors, cookers, etc.) and to protect it against UV rays. If this is not the case, the seals can deteriorate more quickly, affecting your safety or the working order of the regulator. Keep your equipment in a dry place away from heat and direct sunlight.
