No-frills jacket-style BC offers loads of comfort and stability at depth.

It's no surprise that the PILOT is favored by diving centers and resorts the world over. After all, it's easy to use and it provides a stable ride at depth. This can be very reassuring to traveling divers who usually don't have time to get overly familiar with their rental gear.

Which begs the question: why rent a PILOT when you can own a PILOT? That way, you can use it all year for local diving, then take it with you on your next dive trip.

The PILOT is made of 420 denier nylon which is both lightweight and durable, plus it dries really fast, a huge convenience whether you're traveling around the world or across town. Comfortable and easy to use, its wrap-around air cell, wide cummerbund and adjustable shoulder straps with rotating buckles allow you to dial in a snug, secure fit. Some nice back padding lends an extra level of comfort. The tank locks in solidly with SCUBAPRO's reliable stainless steel Super Cinch band, and an outstanding valve system provides pinpoint buoyancy control on ascents and descents. Two large Velcro cargo pockets are included, along with a pair of plastic D-rings for clipping on extra gear.

For jacket-style aficionados who like to keep their dive systems simple, the PILOT has a lot to offer.
