BCD Spares

For the best value range of BCDs on the UK market. Praised by "Sport Diver" for their "robust build quality"

The All New Seapro Nuovo.

The replacement for the popular Seapro. All the same features that made the Seapro so popular plus more

In a recent Sport diver test of BCDs below 250 the Nuovo was reported as a great looking BCD that was very well equiped for the price with an excellent integrated weight system. A very comfortable jacket with understated looks and a robust build quality. A positive bargain. The only thing that stopped it being voted "Divers Choice" was the slow inflate and dump. This was a pre production BCD and both the inflator and pull dump have been revised and the early problems resolved. All models are now fitted with a completely revised inflator assembly. The inflator has larger ports. The corrugated hose is a softer material for more give and the dump valve has a redesigned spring.

Faster inflation and a lighter feel to the dump

The Nuovo is made from a tri-laminate 840 denier cordura for hard wear and a long life and features the following

Inova low profile swivel over pressure valves. Both fitted with pull cords giving 3 pull dumps with the inflator pull dump

Dual position chest straps. For your personal fit

Stylish and comfortable back protection system.

Dual cylinder straps for safety and security.

Dual size knife holder.

The pictures show some of the features found on this BCD.

Trim pockets, side and front view and the expanding rear bladder which provides the class beating lift. The picture from the front shows an XL.

If you can find a Cordura trilaminate BCD with as many features as the Seapro Nuovo for less than this I will sell you one of these for 50 less than the competitors price. I can say that because there isn't such an item on the market that comes anywhere near for both specification and price.

Two zipped accessory pockets. Boxed pockets so even when inflated you can get your hand in. Zips for security

Rear Aircell plus for extra buoyancy. (68lbs for the XXL) This must be one of the buoyancy leaders in its class. 68lbs is more than many wings

6 D rings. No shortage of places to clip accessories to.

Rear trim pockets. Move some of your weight to where it is needed and with the fantastic lift of this model you will probably need these.

2 dumpable weight pockets with instant lock release system. Voted by Sport Diver as the best weight system in its class.

Weight S 4kg  to XXL 4.8kg

Buoyancy (lift) small 33lbs to XXL 68lbs

 including vat must make this the best value weight integrated BCD on the market.


BCD Sizing See chart at the bottom of the page

The most important measurements for correct BCD sizing are the chest and waist measurements. If your chest and waist are within a particular size but your height and weight fall slightly within another size, we suggest going with the size of your chest and waist. Please note that our BCDs are VERY adjustable.

These sizes are the makers recommendations but I find the Red Hat ones are very generously sized. If you border on two sizes I would go for the smaller. The Red Hat XXL is huge.
