The industry standard for rugged design, versatility, and comfort. If you want a tough recreational buoyancy system, and also want it to adapt and change to meet your different diving needs, the RANGER is a system you won't outgrow. It’s been at the "top of the charts" for many years.
The Ranger was the first BC to combine high quality heavy duty construction, weight integration and rear flotation. Its introduction created a new category of buoyancy systems and made it the most imitated BC in history. But its incredible versatility is what keeps knowledgeable divers recommending it year after year. Our modular construction allows the Ranger to transition between tropical travel diving, rugged cold water diving in wet or dry suits, single or twin cylinders, and even technical diving (with optional bladder assemblies having up to dual 85 lb lift redundant bladder assemblies and easily mounted backplates).
Use the practical Bx Coupler to rinse the inside of the bladder. Simply unscrew the Bx Coupler from the Power Inflator, and screw onto a standard garden hose.
Constructed of heavily reinforced 1050 denier ballistic nylon, the Ranger is compatible with a variety of options and accessories, including bladders, pockets, hard backplates, and custom gear attachment components.
Our personal note: All RANGER BCs are very durable, you will certainly be able to do hundreds of dives with either of them. The RANGERs are highly adjustable and you can configure them to your specific needs. We love them! We don't think it's the best solution as a permanent BC for using double tanks but it's a great option to have if you are using a double tank only occasionally.
