Scott Zeagle probably would have answered you by now, but he is in Korea at a trade show.

I purchased my Ranger 5 years ago and late last year retrofitted it with an Escape bladder which it is now called a Brigade. Switching out the bladders was a tooless operation, easy, real easy. It has made a huge difference in space in my bag, huge.

As far as missing the 44lb lift, no issues at all. I don't put any air in it anyway :) Seriously, unless you are going to dive doubles that 44 lb bladder is overkill.

Also, I ended up by selling my old Ranger bladder on this board and the net cost afterwords essentially a wash. It was a win/win for me.

The Stiletto and 2008 Escape use the same bladder.

The Brigade and the old version of the Escape use a bladder that is basically the same, just a little lighter weight. All of these bladders are 35lbs lift, with a 24 and 44lb version available.

The 35lb Scout bladder is exactly the same as the Stiletto bladder, but the Scout comes standard with a 24lb bladder made of the same material.

The Zena uses a little different bladder...same material as the Stiletto, just cut differently.

All of these bladders, except the Zena bladder, will attach to the Ranger BC.

Hope that helps.
