I did my AOW this past weekend at Lake Travis sporting my NEW Brigade from ST; this is the first time I've ever had near-perfect buoyancy with so little weight. I'll never, ever go back to a jacket style after doing our 6 dives in this BC, personal opinion- it's the best I've ever used! You literally hardly know it's on you save for the weight of the tank on your back, and even then it's got a well padded back to protect you. Plenty of D-rings that held my compass/slate, main light, backup light, lift bag, and still had room!

Wanted to give my 2 cents worth after experiencing using one first hand and how well it performed for me for all the AOW dives.

Couldn't agree more!! The Brigade is an awesome BC... One of the best value's in back inflate BC's as well. It's a whole lot of BC for the price, and like you said, you hardly know it's there!!

I'm quite satisfied with mine. Very comfortable although the pockets are pretty small. Still, as TxScubaBear mentioned, plenty of clippage.

I am pretty happy with my Brigade as well. The first couple times I needed to adjust it a a bit as it sits differently than more traditional BCDs, but now I like it. PLus it's got a ton of storage space so can really load up.

I love mine as well. It fits good, is comfortable with the lumbar pad, and has a good range of movement like a back inflate is supposed to have. I am so glad I decided on it over some other models and brands when I purchased my own BCD.

I did my AOW at Lake Travis this weekend and got to try out my new Zeagle Lumbar Pad with my Brigade. Best $30 I've spend on diving. After 6 dives, my lower back fealt great. I would highly recommend this addition. Very easy self-install as well.

Does the lumbar pad affect sizing?

It would probably require you to move the cummerbund on one side by one set of grommet holes... So as long as you're not at the end... you should be good.

My wife and I both got new Zeagles recently, I grabbed the Brigade and a Laser for her. I really dig it. I second completely the "no-feel" effect of this BC. First back inflating BC for me and I am hooked. Go Zeagle!
