The GLIDE is a perfect example of a full-featured front-adjustable BC that's as comfy as a favorite old coat. Strategically placed padding, an adjustable cummerbund, quick-release rotating shoulder buckles (for optimum strap routing) and a sternum strap all work together to deliver a comfortable, dialed-in fit.

With its contoured hard pack and single-band Super Cinch tank buckle, the GLIDE also delivers a stable ride at depth. The integrated quick-release weight system is first-rate in both compactness and security. Once clipped in, your ballast weights won't be going anywhere unless you want them too, and then it's an easy buckle squeeze-and-pull for a quick ditch.

Two large zippered cargo pockets are fitted with grommets for attaching a knife. There's also a small zippered storage pouch on the cummerbund, and four large pre-bent stainless steel D-rings, along with two smaller stainless D-rings, provide convenient clip-on points for additional gear.

Our personal note: this is the male counterpart of the women's BC BELLA
