I went from a big comfy BC to a Zeagle - (it had a lot of lift 40-50lbs and lots of pockets, but it was still less cumbersome than other bc's) and then to a Dive Rite. As I get more dives I want less stuff and less bc surface area dragging on me and ruining my air consumption- I dropped about 12 lbs of weight when I went to the dive rite and got more streamlined.Now I dive with only 10 lbs of weight and my air consumption has gone way down. Also It's easier to put on, clean, pack and carry. I don't miss the 10-20 pounds more lift the Zeagle had , the pockets or the big wings that are like carrying a parachute under water with you.
