The Mares Prestige SLS BCD is a tough and durable BCD with plenty of all round lift, an updated inflator system, integrated weight and also great styling details.
The BCD bladder is made entirely from hard wearing Cordura material, a heavier weight for the pocket areas and a lighter weight over the bladder to prevent excessive overall weight. The harness has been re-designed over the shoulders and chest for a more comfortable fit. The quick release shoulder buckles have been given a swivelling joint to allow a more natural fit around the diver and down to the waist.
The sides of the BCD feature the SLS integrated weight system and a large zipped pocket that expands towards the back of the BCD to provide a surprisingly high volume storage pocket. The integrated weight system uses a pull to release locking mechanism to ensure a secure fit into the slots. BCD sizes small and below can accommodate 4kg of weight in each pocket whereas medium and above BCDs will accept up to 6kg each. The left hand pocket also features grommet holes to accept a BCD knife.
The Ergo inflator has been given a refresh with a more compact design. The deflation dumps have also been given a new low profile look. The full rigid backplate is cover with a cordura lined padded backpad to provide shock absorption. A grab handle protrudes from the top of the backpad to aid secure and safe lifting once fitted to a cylinder.
