Scubapro Hydros Pro Men's BCD Review
The Scubapro Hydros Pro BCD is a revolutionary wing BCD using the same Monoprene as their Seawing Nova fins for a tough and flexible harness that grips and holds it’s position. The modular design of the Hydros make it easy to add and remove sections to change how the BCD functions and weighs so you only need one BCD to be your lightweight travel wing and your tough integrated BC.
The Monprene® is more durable than conventional materials and has higher resistance to UV, chemical and abrasion damage. The construction and materials has also made the Hydros Neutrally Buoyant with a near-zero inherent buoyancy so you don’t have to worry about weight calculations so much.
Monoprene grips to you and your wetsuit so it isn’t going to slip and shift when it’s on and will dry instantly getting out of the water for a more comfortable kitting up on the 2nd dive.
The Hydros has been designed to be modular so you can personalise it to your needs, replace damaged parts and upgrade in the future. By adding or removing weight systems, bungees, D-Rings, accessories and pockets you can customise your BCD so if you need a striped down light travel BCD one day or one with integrated weights and pockets the next you can.
