Mares XR Closed Cell dSMB

Orange

Information

The Mares XR dSMB is a closed cell delayed surface marker bouy made to be easily seen in most conditions. The closed design meand that the dSMB will never delfate on the surface and bright colours with reflactive tape and a space for glo-sticks mean you will be easily seen in the water.

 

Bright

Day Glo Orange and Emergency Yellow colours contrast against the water so you can be seen easily. Solas Reflective Tape on the top is Coast Guard approved which reflects any light very effectively so you can be better seen in poor conditions.

A transparent window at the top of the dSMB can be used to transfer wetnotes to the surface or fit glow sticks for an illuminated bouy.

Measuring 1.8m long and 15cm wide you will be easily seen in the water.

 

Simple

The closed cell design means the dSMB will stay inflated until you deflate it back on the boat or shore. The over pressure valve vents expanding air as it ascends but ensures that the buoy stays rigid and fully inflated on the surface until you deflate it.

Inflation requires one simple action with a standard BCD or Drysuit Hose.

A Stainless Steel D-Ring allows for simple attachment and a bungee loop attached to the webbing lets you wrap the dSMB to store neatly in a pocket.

A little difficult to inflate orally as the valve is quite hard to blow into. Apart from that it can't be flawed.

The only shortcoming is the bottom strap is very long. When I fold it and hang it behind the BCD, it almost touch the knee, so I tie a knot on the strap to shorten its length. It is a bit hard to blow orally at first time, but there is no problem after that.

The one way valve bust on first use Mares dont seem too interested in helping me resolve the issue... bought an AP valves one which is much better

Well made, good visibility, handy pocket for a light stick at night.
