New Gear: Aqualung Zuma Travel BCD

If you are a diver that does a lot of traveling to warmer destinations, you will run into the new airline luggage fees and weight/size restrictions. Regular BCD’s have a weight of somewhere between 3kg/6lbs and 6kg/12lbs, and their size makes it awkward to fit in a suitcase and might push you to have to bring a second suitcase.  

The Zuma is a full featured back inflate bcd, that even boasts weight integration, shoulder and back padding and only weighs 2.2kg/4.75 lbs. It can be packed flat or rolled to save room in your suitcase to even fit in your carry on luggage.

We put the Zuma in to the  Aqua Lung Explorer carry on Luggage with a complete set of gear excluding fins to show you how much space you save with a travel BCD
