  1. A buoyancy compensator (also commonly referred to as a buoyancy control device, BC or BCD) is an integral aspect of a diver's equipment.
  2. A buoyancy compensator is a bag that inflates and deflates depending upon your buoyancy requirements.
  3. A buoyancy compensator is also used as part of your scuba gear.
  4. The buoyancy compensator is a convenience product that has unfortunately replaced the diver's safety vest. (Web site)
  5. The BC, or buoyancy compensator is used to float the diver and equipment on the surface and allows for adjusting for neutral buoyancy at depth.

Pockets Built-In
