Scubapro Glide 2000
Great price. Great service. Ordered the Glide 2000 Friday and took delivery Tuesday lunchtime, and at a price that was £75 cheaper (even after delivery charges) than the cheapest UK dealer. Thanks to all at Diveinn. I hope this review will ensure an even better discount on my next order.
I m very pleased with my Glide 2000. It s a very comfortable jacket and the broad shoulder strap pads are especially good if you dive in a drysuit. The integrated weight pockets are very secure and the additional back weight pockets are great to get your trim just right. The hide away strap ends are great for achieving a tidy profile without any dangly bits! It seems a very sturdy jacket which should last years. It s also very good looking. I definately recommend this BC.
excellent customer service shame about the bcd-jacket
I can thoroughly recommend the Scubastore for their excellent all round customer service and speed of delivery, I would not hesitate to order products from here again. Unfortunately I cannot offer this B.C the same compliment. I have used my Glide for one weeks light use in the Red Sea and it is already starting to show wear/damage in areas where PLASTIC fittings such as integrated weight pocket buckles, shoulderstrap buckles and the inflation hose comes into contact with the reflective strip running down the side of the B.C. This does not constitute a safety problem however it is starting to make the B.C look shabby. The scubapro instruction manual points out that this B.C only has a shelf life of 7 years but until you ve bought the B.C and read the manual you don t know this! In comparison, appart from slight fading my previous B.C, an A.P Valves Buddy Commando, gave me 11 yrs of serious diving and was sold S/H in better condition and in my opinion, jacket for jacket was far better quality. Unfortunately I have learnt the expensive way, a real disappointment!
I love this BC. Very comfortable, in all positions – there is no chest squeeze if you over inflate it. The weights are very secure with clip (unlike previous models with Velcro only to secure the weights). The Balanced Power Inflator is very easy to use, so that you can fine tune your buoyancy. I have been on two diving holidays with this BC, and it still looks as though I have just purchased it, it should last a very long time! Unfortunately Scubastore isn’t the cheapest anymore like they used to be, but they still have very competitive prices and a good range!

Jacket to enjoy
HAVE THIS JACKET DIVING AND TELL YOU THAT PERFECTLY, HAS A SPECIAL BUOYANCY AND COMFORT IS PERFECT
This is a great BC. I know some were skeptical of the integrated weights being clipped in, but they work great. I bought mine from the Scubastore about 2 years ago & i ve loved it. It shows little (if any) signs of wear & is the most comfortable BC I ve used. I definately support this purchase.
I recently took delivery of a Glide 2000 bcd-jacket and have found that, whilst the build quality is very good, the pockets are almost unusable when the integrated weight packs are fitted, even if they are empty. It is a shame, especially considering all of the other well thought out features on this bcd-jacket. The pockets are also secured with velcro, rather than more secure zip fastenings.
Top quality bcd-jacket
Ignore the earlier review regarding durability..I assume that this guy must have a beef against Scubapro, or doesn t look after his gear. I have owned a Glide 2000 for over two years and it is excellent. I first bought it in Saudi and did a fair bit of diving in the Red Sea. I then shipped it to the Turks Islands in the West Indies and have logged about 20 dives here so far. The conditions here can be tough on equipment with fine abrasive coral sand getting into everything. The bcd-jacket is still in pristine condition though, no buckles, straps or valves have failed, it is very comfortable and the bouyancy control is excellent. I have had a slight leak on the bcd-jacket air valve due to gritty sand getting in the sleeve but this was easy to rectify. I agree that the pockets are nigh on useless when you have soft weights fitted. I tend to use the D rings to attach any ancillaries so this is not a problem. If you take the trouble to rinse out the bcd-jacket after every dive, and store it in a cool dry place out of the sunlight I think it will give many years of good service. All in all, very good gear and I would highly recommend this bcd-jacket.
Great services, good price
Thank you very much for the really quick delivery in Greece only two days after my order. The bcd-jacket is really comfortable and I hope to last as long as my previous scubapro classic. Definitely I ll will use your e-shop in the future
