    Looks pretty simple. Now I am looking for a BCD and have been talking to some guys on a Scuba Forum (I am PADI certified). I have only used BCD Jackets, yet a lot of guys are telling me to go with a Backplate/wing. I hear its more adjustable to each user, but what are the real differences here. I know its a back fill so on the surface I am looking at it forcing me to lay flat as opposed to upright with a vest. If you can persuade me thanks!

    been using a bp/w for a few years now and will never (ever) go back to a jacket bc if i can avoid it... i get much more control, comfort and better trim in the water...

    given it's a tad heavy to transport (i use a 6lb SS plate) but otherwise it rocks since i don't need a weight belt around my already generous waist
