Searching for the perfect scuba diving vest? Here is a list of characteristics to look out for in your next scuba gear purchase.

Scuba Vest

Dive vests (or hydrostatic vests) are essential items of diving equipment. A buoyancy control device (BCD) is also known as a stab jacket in English. It is placed in the diving vest along with the diving bottle and regulator. Trim (control of buoyancy) is one of the vest’s main functions. As long as the vest is filled with gas from the diving bottle, it will remain buoyant at the correct depth. When purchasing a vest, be sure to test its lifting power.

Scuba diving inflatable vest

Dive vests are made of nylon. To stabilize certain points of the vest, different thicknesses of nylon are often used. A denier is a measure of thickness or force. Metal or plastic backplates can be found on some of the vests.

The best Scuba Vest for you is the one that fits your body and needs. There are many types of vests, such as sleeveless or hooded vests depending on what activities you will be doing while diving (i.e., snorkeling). The vest should fit comfortably without restricting movement too much; plus it shouldn’t have a lot of pockets if they become cumbersome when underwater because they add weight to an already heavy load.
