    Hello, Im not sure what you mean by the time?? If you are asking how long it took to do the repair, I tinkered with it over several evenings after work. At first I was not sure what I was going to do to fix it and figured what have I got to loose. I began taking it apart and ideas started coming to mind. If you are asking how well it is holding up, it is holding up well with several dives on it so far..

    My wife’s Luna strap just broke here in Cozumel after probably 8 years and 400 dives. Was sure hoping it would last longer than this. Any recommendations for a small female that isn’t a Sherwood product?

    The best fix for your Sherwood BCD's is to find a Mares Dealer. You can order their hard backpack with soft cover, remove the plastic Sherwood junk backpack, and install the Mares backpack. Instant new BCD. I am doing this with my Sherwood Torguga BCD which is like new except for the broken Backpack. I called Sherwood some years ago and the best they would do is give me a credit for a new one. Why would I spend good money for a new POS plastic backpack? My local Mares dealer JustMadAboutDiving.com will get me the parts. Will fit like a glove.
