The Mares Bolt BCD is a comfortable wing style BCD with the SLS weight integration pockets and a Lumbar Support System. The Bolt has been made to be simple, light and comfortable for a travelling diver who doesn't want a bulky jacket style BC.
The bladder of the BCD only inflates behind you around your cylinder which holds you in a horizontal position in the water and holds your cylinder from twisting when you're in the water. Even when fully inflated you won't feel it unlike a jacket style and when it deflates the bungee system folds the bladder into itself to keep it neat and streamlined.
Mares' Slide and Lock System uses a mechanical system that holds the pockets securely in place so the can only fall out when you pull the handle. The visual indicator on each pocket tells you if you've connected it properly.

Mares Bolt SLS BCD - Features
|Back Plate Type|
?Describes the style of back plate, a travel BCD will usually feature a flexible or partial backplate whereas a standard BCD will have a full rigid (and probably padded) backplate
|Full padded rigid|
|Female Specific Fit|
?Most BCDs are designed to fit men and women but there are a growing number of BCDs designed specifically for women, providing a much better fit and support.
?A standard BCD will provide lift in the back and usually through the front pockets, giving a balanced lift. Hybrids and wing systems will provide lift in different ways depending on the design, a standard wing will only provide lift in the back.
?Quick release weight systems allow a more comfortable distribution of weight as it no longer has to be solely worn around the waist. Easy removal means that the pouches can be quickly removed and handed over to boat crews on exit or dumped in an emergency.
|Quick Release Buckles|
?Quick release buckles aid donning and removal of the BCD with minimal effort
?Main side pockets for storage
|Single Pouch Capacity (kg)|
?The recommended maximum weight for each integrated weight pouch (based on medium BCD)
|Single Trim Capacity (kg)|
?The recommended maximum weight for each trim weight pocket
|Trim Weight Pockets|
?Trim weight pockets allow weight to be added to the back of the BCD to balance out the distribution. They are also useful to counterbalance the affect of wearing a pony or other redundant system as counter weights can be added to the pouch on the opposite side, helping to prevent rolling.
