The Hydros Pro BCD by Scubapro

Equipment Spotlight: The Hydros Pro BCD by Scubapro

Deep down, you want your equipment to be the best. If it’s time to level up your scuba kit, look no further than the Hydros Pro buoyancy compensator device (BDC) from Scubapro. Winner of the Reddot Design Award in 2011, Scubapro continues to improve the feature-rich BCD and it is the go-to choice for avid divers and industry professionals.

The buoyancy compensator device is literally the backbone of your gear. It secures your air supply to your back, allows you to control your buoyancy, provides pockets and rings to keep gear within reach, has streamlined low pressure inflator/air regulators, and offers the critical safety option of quick-release weight systems. Bonus if it looks good. The Hydros Pro does all that and more.

Why the Hydros Pro is Special

First, let’s look at the design. The Hydros Pro has a 2-in-1 design that makes it remarkably versatile.  With a quick switch of clips, the BDC transforms from a fully integrated back-inflate, weight-carrying BCD to a lightweight harness, which makes it the perfect choice for any type of diving.

The fit is perfect. Designed with body grip gel, the Hydros Pro molds to your specific body shape, which greatly increases comfort and stability. Women’s Hydros Pros have smaller air bladders, shorter inflator hoses, and curved shoulder straps, demonstrating Scubapro’s commitment to designing equipment that fits all users.

The Hydros Pro is Fully Customizable

The configuration of the Hydros Pro is up to you. Don’t need integrated weight pockets for your next dive? Take them off. Want more bungees or D-rings? They are easy to add, along with pockets. There is also a wide range of mountable accessories and kits for dive knives and more. You can even choose your favorite color from an array of nine color kits!

The Hydros Pro is Designed to Travel

Divers love to travel, and the Hydros Pro makes it a lot easier. The Hydros Pro is constructed from materials that don’t absorb water—even when immersed for that long shallow reef dive. It’s dry when you pull it from the water—which makes packing that much more trouble free.

The carrying case that comes with the Hydros BCD is a backpack that accommodates your entire kit. Yes, BCD with weight pockets, wetsuit (5mm), regulator, computer, snorkel, mask, surface marker buoy, hood, dive light, and fins. Don’t believe me (because really, who would?)? Click here

to see the YouTube video where Rhys Couzyn the man who designed the Hydros and its travel backpack, demonstrates exactly how it all fits into a carryon!

Diving the Hydros Pro

Because of the air bladder placement, it is easy to stay horizontal in the water. On the surface, divers need to lean further back to compensate for the natural pitch forward of a back-inflate BCD.

Any BCD is an investment. Jupiter Dive Center is a Scubapro Platinum dealer, which means that we have the Hydros Pro in stock. Try it on, feel the comfort, examine the quality of the materials used in its construction. Best of all, if you have any questions, our knowledgeable staff is there to help.

Jupiter Dive Center’s Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are right around the corner and whether you are interested in equipment, experiences, or education, Jupiter Dive Center can help you select the perfect gift for every scuba diver on your list!

Let’s start with the basics. Scuba divers often purchase their own regulator, buoyancy compensator device, computer, mask, fins, and snorkel. Jupiter Dive Center is a platinum Scubapro dealer, and we have everything you need.

Want to make an impression? The G2 dive computer will definitely do the trick. The G2 has an intuitive menu, rechargeable battery (with up to 50 hours on a single charge), easy to read display, a huge 485 MB memory capable of storing dive profiles, pictures, tables and more, and the ability to sync to all your PC, Mac, Android, and IOS devices. It’s available in wrist or console models.

Some of the best gifts are experiences, and traveling to a dream destination to dive is hard to beat. Jupiter Dive Center has several trips planned in 2019, including Dunbar Rock in Honduras, Little Cayman Island, the Solomon Islands and more!

If your special someone has already signed up for a trip, you can still make traveling easier with a new gear bag. Whether transporting equipment from the trunk of the car to the dive boat, or traveling halfway around the globe, the right gear bag makes a diver’s life easier. One of our favorites? The Scubapro Travel Bag—it’s a midsize rolling bag with a removable front backpack. Add the Scubapro Dry Bag 5 to protect any valuables that don’t mix well with saltwater, and your diver will be ready for their dream vacation in style.

Specialty courses focus on different ways divers can enjoy the ocean, and giving the gift of a dive course prepares your diver for new adventures! Jupiter Dive Center offers classes from basic certification to professional divemaster in addition to a wide variety of specialty courses exploring wrecks, navigation, photography, night diving and a host of other possibilities. For a complete list of specialties, click here.

 

Buying a gift doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money and Jupiter Dive Center has plenty of ways to save. Our most popular gift? Trip Cards. The more charter trips you buy in advance, the more free trips you get! Trip cards are available in 5, 10, and 20-dive options. Plus, Trip Cards never expire!

Another way to stretch your holiday budget is to buy equipment that has already been in the water. Every year, Jupiter Dive Center replenishes their rental gear and there are bargains galore on lightly used Regulators, computers, and buoyance compensators. Come on in to see the selection.

 

Looking for something small but essential? Different types of diving require different gear. Every diver should have his or her own surface marker buoy. Drift diving? A “safety sausage” is required. If your diver enjoys night diving, check out Scubapro’s line of flashlights. Rugged and reliable, they are available in a variety of sizes so that your diver always has a functioning primary and redundant light source! Wreck diving? How about a new reel?

For the mystery reader in your life, Jupiter Dive Center is proud to sell autographed copies of Beached, by Micki Browning. Set in the Florida Keys this award-winning novel is the next best thing to being underwater!

 

Stuck on what to get for stocking stuffers? Sure, you can pack your loved one’s stocking with gum and lip balm, but how about a new log book, or a container of de-fog? Clips, tethers, straps, and o-rings are way better than sugarplums. These are just a few of the little items that can make the difference between scrapping a dive or having the resources to fix a problem. Inexpensive, but priceless when needed.

So what’s the one thing you don’t want to buy for someone else? A mask. Every individual’s face is different and it’s critical that a mask fits. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t bring him or her into the shop after the holidays to pick one out, or you can just look at our next gift suggestion…

 

Let’s face it. You can’t go wrong by giving a gift card. Available in any amount, you can tuck it into a stocking, put it in a holiday card, or even wrap it in a box. No need to worry about size or colors. A gift card is always perfect.

No matter the occasion, Jupiter Dive Center can take the worry out of gift giving. So stop in and let our knowledgeable staff help you select the perfect gift!

From all the crew at Jupiter Dive Center, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season.

Merry Christmas!
