    going to Vegas want to buy BCD

    Hi;
    We are going to Las Vegas in two weeks. I have been doing some research on the boards and think I have narrowed it down to a Mares Aliikai BCD and Zeagle Zena. I do a lot of travel diving and want something that packs small, has enough lift and is comfy. I can't find much info about the Dive Shops in Vegas, other than the list of them. Anyone have a favourite dive shop that sells Zeagle or Mares? We will be staying on the strip so hopefully a shop within taxi range.
    Thanks for any info.

    none within cheap taxi range... and the only one I know who at least used to sell Zeagle is Scuba Views... Not sure if they still do, I know they carry Tusa and a few others...

    Why not get one from ST with the discount and price match, it will save you some dough. Any reason why you want to buy one in vegas?

    Most of the shops here are in the Nevada Scuba Retailers Association, and tend to be jerks, not all of the employees are, but there are many instances of the shops not playing nice.

    Scuba Views is one of the best shops in town from what i have heard, and the 3 local sport chalets also have scuba sections, although we dont carry Zeagle, or the specific mares bcd you mentioned, but Scuba Views DOES carry zeagle. Learn to scuba dive with Scuba Views for the adventure of scuba diving in Las Vegas and around the world

    but as others have said, get it from scubatoys, youll get a better deal

    Thanks guys, and I do want to buy from ST. BUT I am not sure what size or which one, so i would have to order 4 BCDs two sizes of each and I would like to try it in the water, which I can't do from ST unless I go there. I was hoping to find a place where I could use their pool too to try it on, that's probably too much to ask.

    Free shipping doesn't apply to Alaska.

    Oh, we were also going to try a bunch of masks on my hubby. He has a really wide, big head and needs a big mask to fit to his face. He doesn't dive yet, but he likes to snorkle, so i am ever hopeful.

    If I can't find them in Vegas I will order from ST and cross my fingers that they will fit.
