Hi All,

I just bought a Zeagle Stiletto, yet to dive with it. I was curious what the inherent buoyancy of this (and other) Zeagle BCD is? Looking to get an idea of how much weight I'll need next month in Hawaii. Moving from a Cressi-Sub Aqualight R that had 2 or 3 lbs of positive lift.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Stand in shallow water with bc. Add weight in small increments until it sinks. Note amount of weight used.

Should be darn close to zero if you get all the air out. I know in the pool, I can drop my zeagle brigade on a tank, and it will sink with no lead in it... And even if the tank isn't 100% full... so it has to be minimal at best.
