Distributing weights allow the diver to not use the unwanted weight belt as he or she is going to have more balance during the dive.
D-rings are used for technical diving (Sidemount System). They are very useful. For example, a diver can use them to attach more tanks or other stuff to his/her equipment or to keep items clipped to your equipment.
Nylon Outer Cover
BCD is made with a ballistic nylon outer cover that affects the life expectancy of it. It protects the BCD from having cuts or holes that are caused by corals, rocks or the edges of the boat when getting on or off it.
BCS pockets help the diver to keep things that he/she might need like the camera accessories.
There are two styles of BCD: the vest-style BCD and the back-inflation BCD. The first type is more suitable for beginners whereas the second style is for professionals.
A BCD has different ports that are used to control the buoyancy, the amount of air inside it or to rinse the inside bladder.
