Hi BW.
In answer to the BCD question, I've tried a few, when learning and also hire kit when on holiday. I've ended up with the Seaquest Pro QD. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's totally bombproof, got a plethora of D rings and has various other little things going for it such as pre positioned knife attachment points, a hole on the left pocket that a retractor can be fitted through for your SPG (keeping it nice and tidy) and also some other little add ons such as the Surface Observation Signal (SOS), a SMB that attaches directly to the rear of the BCD.
There are othe stab jackets out there that are equally as good I quess but I swear by mine. Check out the two addresses below.

Hope it's of use and happy diving.

I agree with Shiney, the PRO QD is a good bcd, I have the previous model and most of the other instructors and divemasters at the dive centre I worked at had a PRO QD. I did want this new version but couldn't justify buying it when my bcd was only bought in 2008 and still in good condition. 2 of the divemaster trainees at the shop bought them as well. it has decent size pockets for putting things in and plenty of D rings.

Hi,

I'd look at a Scubapro T-Black as it's well built, not too bulky for your suitcase, comfortable and will last a lifetime.

hi,

I use the T52 BCD, its really good at keeping you horizontal, it has the wings at the back and has a modern look.

Check out the link below:

Hi,
I've been looking for a new BCD as well.
I came a cross the Mares hybrid pro tech, it had a removable back plate to make it lighter,so ideal for traveling..
