Best High-End

The Ranger is a scuba classic and has been going strong (with minor tweaks over the years) since 1994. Renowned for its heavy-duty build quality, this BCD will be with you for years to come. We admire the Ranger for its flexibility — it can be used for both technical and recreational diving.

Techies might not love some elements, such as the quick-release system, but must admit it’s not a bad wing and handles twins no issue.
