SCUBA diving is an activity that you want to do with good equipment, not only for comfort, but also because your life can depend on it. I’ve used a wide variety of buoyancy compensators over the past decade and the ZEAGLE RANGER BCD is one of the best. It’s comfortable, functional, durable and dependable – everything you want in a BC. They’re great for both work and recreation.
The ZEAGLE RANGER BCD was the first BC to combine high quality heavy duty construction, weight integration, and rear flotation. Its introduction created a new category of buoyancy systems, and it is without doubt the most imitated BC in history. But its the Rangers incredible versatility that keeps knowledgeable divers recommending it year after year.
Zeagles modular construction allows the Ranger to transition between tropical travel diving, rugged cold water diving in wet or dry suits, single or twin cylinders, and even (with optional bladder assemblies having up to 2 X 85-LB lift and easily mounted backplates) technical diving.
Constructed of heavily reinforced 1050 denier ballistic nylon, the Ranger is compatible with a variety of options and accessories, including bladders, pockets, hard backplates, and custom gear attachment components.
If you are a diver who wants a rugged recreational buoyancy system, but also want one that can adapt and change to meet different diving needs, the Ranger is a system you won’t outgrow.
