I found a brand called Eagle Z1 - Is this a knock off of Zeagle gear?

I just looked at their site, and have to say it would appear so. I would say even though they are obviously making a play on the Zeagle name (Eagle Z) their BCD's don't really look similar. As a matter of fact the Eagle Z-1 looks a lot like the Riptide Zone.

Here is where the compare themselves to the Ranger
http://www.eaglez1.com/page28.html

They compare themselves to Zeagle, and specifically they compare the Eagle Z1 to the Ranger, so it's pretty obvious whose market they are trying to go after..

Maybe it's a disgruntled former Zeagle employee or something...I dunno..

Just looked again at the Eagle Z1 and the Riptide Zone..It's hard to tell because all of the pictures on the Eagle web site are really low res and fuzzy, but I would swear that these two are the same BCD...

I am with you Scott, if I want a knock off BCD I'll buy one on my next trip to China. My Ranger is 2nd to none (soon to be converted to a Brigade :))
