Larry-

I bought Zeagle Brigade from ST about a year ago and have been on a couple of trips with it. While it is a great BC, I would disagree that it is a travel BC.

I found it a bit bulky and heavy. I have a 32" duffle and it takes up about 40% of the space. Specifically, I find the side pockets and the weight pockets a bit large.

Since now I dive exclusively away from home, I am looking into a lighter and less bulky travel BC. Would probably sell my Brigade.

Just my $0.02.

Vimal.
If I were you, I'd look at the oxycheq travel plate withe the 18# mach 5 wing. Scuba toys doesn't have the wing listed on their site, but I'm sure they could get you 1. Plus, they could put you a package to gether that would probably be less than the DSS. Plus it would pack smaller.

Thanks Larry and Bsea. I will have a good look over the specs. I was thinking black color might go over better with airport security as it looks less like "scarry metal" and might even be thought to be plastic. Maybe.

I'm with you. I travel w/ my bridage and it's no big deal.......

Any backplate/wing will work.

Mine from www.deepseasupply.com came in a tiny box in the mail that weighed 9lbs. (The backplate itself is 6lbs, you can buy different ones from DSS that are 2-3lbs).

The whole thing came in a box that was 14.5"x16.5"x5". I'd be hardpressed to get it compacted down to that again but it's doable.

You're probably looking at $550 though.

Have you looked at the mares icon? It's a little pricey but folds up into almost nothing.

They are nice looking. And very small for weight integrated.
