Designed by women for women for better balance and comfort
The Zena was created exclusively for women by women. The twin straps adjust separately to suit the waist and hips, and the elastic front panels give excellent fit and comfort. The waist, chest, and torso length may all be fitted separately using our revolutionary PFS sizing method.
“To say that I LOVE the Zena BCD is an understatement! It is comfortable, FITS, and works well... I recommend this BCD to everyone I meet.”Erin Waggoner, Zena owner
The Zena is meant to be worn with the top waistband at the natural waist, allowing the weights and buoyancy to be placed low, close to the body's center of buoyancy. It fastens with a heavy-duty zipper in the front for a tight, secure, yet non-restrictive fit. The use of a Ripcord release weight mechanism is required.
The most challenging aspect of properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a lower size or accounting for the bust, but rather the fact that women's bodies have a definite waist around which a belt must fasten in order to secure the BC. In comparison to men, women have a shorter torso length as well as a lower center of buoyancy. As a result, traditional buoyancy devices, which should be worn lower for the optimal balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest area of the waist, to be secure. The Zena's twin waist and hip band system allows women to secure weights and buoyancy below the waist, around the body's center of buoyancy.
