The industry standard for rugged design, versatility, and comfort!
If you want a tough recreational buoyancy system, and also want it to adapt and change to meet your different diving needs, the Ranger is a system you won't outgrow. It’s been at the "top of the charts" for many years.
The Ranger was the first BC to combine high quality heavy duty construction, weight integration and rear flotation. Its introduction created a new category of buoyancy systems and made it the most imitated BC in history. But its incredible versatility is what keeps knowledgeable divers recommending it year after year. Our modular construction allows the Ranger to transition between tropical travel diving, rugged cold water diving in wet or dry suits, single or twin cylinders, and even technical diving (with optional bladder assemblies having up to dual 85 lb lift redundant bladder assemblies and easily mounted backplates).
Constructed of heavily reinforced 1050 denier ballistic nylon, the Ranger is compatible with a variety of options and accessories, including bladders, pockets, hard backplates, and custom gear attachment components.
- 44lb lift capacity Ballistic bladder (standard, other capacities available as options)
- 30lb capacity Ripcord® weight system
- 20lb capacity rear trim weight system

Weight Integrated Buoyancy
Our fully integrated weight integrated BCs are designed to absorb the strain between opposing forces of life and weights, rather than your body. This improves your comfort and most importantly, your balance. Because you don’t have to clear a weightbelt, they system can be worn low, balancing weight and lift over your center of buoyancy. So you can float easily in any position on the surface and still be well balanced and trimmed underwater. It also means a better fit, reducing pressure around your diaphragm.
Ripcord Weight Release System The easiest to use and most reliable weight release system in the world.
When it comes to Zeagle BCs, we think safety first, and so should you. Our patented Ripcord system is based on the proven release systems used and trusted by skydivers (if skydivers can trust the weight release system with their lives, so can you). It is the ONLY weight release system that instantly releases the weights from both sides with a single pull. Where most manufacturers weight release systems require 2 handed operation, Zeagle's one handed operation is simple and effective - just what you need in case of an emergency.
Need more convincing? Here's a list of other reasons why the only BC you should own is a Zeagle BC with our patented Ripcord system.
- A single point emergency weight release system. Dump your weights with one hand while managing your buoyancy with the other. Or, if your dive buddy needs to dump your weights, they need only pull from a single point.
- Safest and most reliable weight release system. One pull releases both weight pockets simultaneously. In a serious emergency, time is critical and panic can set in. One single pull and you're on your way to safety.
- It's the easiest and quickest way to load and unload weights. Add any type of weight (block or bag) into your mesh weight pouch and then drop it in to the top mounted zip pockets. Quick and easy.
- If you've ever had to ditch your weights, you know that your dive is over for the day, maybe even the trip. Zeagle's ripcord system can be re-threaded in minutes. Simply add weight and you're back in the water. With other manufacturers, you'll need to buy new weight pockets (cause they'll be on the bottom of the ocean floor).
