      Hi Mndiv, I've rented gear for many dives. All rented BCD are hard backed.
      When I bought my Scout BCD with soft back my first thought was that it could be annoying, but, far from that, it's pretty comfortable for me. No difference with those hard backed BCDs. Even better, as there is no hard back, I consider it even more comfortable. Besides it's not bulky, so it's appropriate for travel.

      The edge freedom and sea elite scout bcd I want to say are my top two BCD choices, but because its soft backed, does that mean the tank hurts/rubs up against your back underwater or on the surface?

      (I also posted this in the public discussion)

      -Thanks for the advice, it really helps to get feedback from someone who actually owns the product!!
