Anyone using this here? Saw it in a x'mas promo from a local dive shop. retailing @ S$720.00.
I do agree that the Mola-Molas are a MYTH!

Which shop is selling it? A friend is looking for the Glide Pro but no one has it so I think he might consider the Equator.

Din, so its the Equator a OK model? I know its not top of the range but definitely not the bottom like right?

From the specs, it seems like a good BC. Not sure which end it belong too though, definitely not the entry level like T-One. Its much better than that, mid-range?

I haven't try it on, so not much I can comment. Based on specs, I prefer this to the Glide Pro because it has the soft neoprene neck trim and padded backpack. After few dives, this will make a difference between rented gear and your own.

Anyway, how much are they selling? $720 pretty steep for this BC, me think. Have you consider other brand as well?

scubapro BCDs don't come cheap.. RRP is usually $820 or more.

I have a good deal from a local dive shop for OMS BP/W BC. The boss keeps asking me to get OMS.

I had try the equator at diveshop sg,quite comfy, light weight for a jacket bc.Smaller backpack able to fold into a travel bag.It comes with rotating quick release shoulder buckles,so when you inflate the bc on the surface the shoulder buckles will turn outwards making it not so tight on the chest areas  :D The neoprene neck cushion is kinda good too. ;D
