The Genesis Drift BCD is a lightweight and inexpensive jacket style BCD with weight integrated system. The Drift BCD has two 8lbs (3.63kg) quick release weight pockets. The weight pockets are equipped with easy to ditch just pull release handles which allows weighs to fall away. These gravity style pockets are one of the easiest to operate in a diving emergency.
