The Zeagle is not bulky at all underwater, IMO. Well, if one is grossly
overweighted and has to pump one's BC with lots of counterbalancing air,
it could be, of course... IMO, Zeagle makes a well-made tech BCD,
comfortable and reliable. Ditto OMC (sp?) and Dive-Rite also make tried
and tested tech BC's with back flotation.
Now, more manufacturers are jumping into the market. I tend to be a bit
conservative and wait until folks have been using them for a while, a
wait-and-watch attidute, so I won't rush to check these out. And some
folks prefer all-round flotation- you'll likely get lots of different
opinions about this. (We do regular sport diving, as well as
phetography, wreck and cavern diving- and particularly like the "tech"
configuration flexibility and back flotation.)
BTW, is your old "Scubapro Back inflation Horse shoe unit" the original
"weight-integrated" unit with horse-shoes in the pockets? <vbseg!> It
DOES make an interesting mental imagery...
