The Cressi Ultralight BCD is a back inflation style buoyancy control device that is extremely lightweight weighing in at a mere 2 kg (4.4 lb) in size medium making it irreplaceable for the traveling diver. This rear inflation style BC combines low weight, quality, safety and key features to give you the perfect solution for your dive travel needs.
Discontinued: Sadly, Cressi have decided to discontinue this amazing travel BCD so we only have limited sizes left and when they're gone, that's it.

You don't expect a lot of frills in a travel BC that weighs barely 5 pounds, so no surprise that the Cressi Ultralight has just a few plastic D-rings and one drop-down cargo pocket. But when it came to performance, the Ultralight turned out to be a heavyweight. Despite its stripped-down, packable design, with a flexible back plate and single-tank cam band, testers gave it top scores for comfort and stability. It was rock-solid underwater, with no tank wobble or shifting, and divers gave it an excellent score for its surface floating position — not usually a strong point for lightweight back-inflation BCs. More surprising was the Cressi Ultralight's comfort, thanks to nicely shaped and padded shoulder straps and backpad. The integrated weights were a snap to load and release, and the buttons on the ergonomic inflator were in just the right places. And the few frills were well-chosen, like the right shoulder exhaust and the adjustable sternum strap. Along with taking top scores in most categories, the Ultralight was among every test diver's top two favourites. It is both the Testers Choice and Best Buy in the Travel category.

What We Think
The Cressi Ultralight BCD is our favourite travel BC. Not only is this BCD ideal for travel, it's enhanced by having a rear inflation wing. Thus you get much better trim and stability in the water. If you come into the dive shop, it's the travel BCD we'd like to sell you.
