Mares

Bolt SLS BCD

£285.00 RRP £341.00 In Stock

Brand: Mares

Model: Bolt SLS BCD

SKU: 62963-1

Please note: This item cannot be shipped outside the European Union - learn more

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.

 

Wing Style

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.

 

SLS Weights

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.

Features

  • Superbly comfortable and stable back buoyancy BC with 21kg lift (46 lbs)
  • Streamlined
  • Swivel shoulder buckles
  • Smart trim weight positioning
  • SLS weight system
  • Roll-down cargo pocket
  • Adjustable cummerbund
  • Travel friendly
  • Monoplate backpack

Weight approx. : 3.9kg

Padded rigid
Integrated Weight Capacity

The recommended maximum weight for both integrated weight pouches (based on medium BCD)Close

Integrated Weights
?
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.Close

Storage Pockets
?
If the BCD has dedicated storage pockets for tools and accessories.Close
Yes
Style
?
There are three styles of BCD; Jacket, Wing & Hybrid. Jacket style BCDs have inflation on the back and around your waist and are prefered by beginner divers because they support you in any position. Wing style BCDs only have inflation on your back around your tank. These hold you in a better position in the water and don't squeeze you when fully inflated. Hybrid BCDs are jacket style BCDs but with a modified section that wraps around the tank for better position in the water.Close
Wing
Trim Weight Capacity
?
The recommended maximum weight for both trim weight pockets.Close

Trim Weight Pouches
?
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 rollingClose

Comfortable

Comfortable fit and functioned well...only thing I would say that the quick release weight pocket on the front could of been made a little smaller to make it less compact....Good brand and did the job while I was in Egypt with no problem.

Hehe .. Just Add Water !

I've only had 2 dives using my new Mares Bolt BCD. Having not dived for over 2 years I needed dive kit I could rely on.

It was easy to get into when I'd attached everything. There are enough D rings for eqiupment though I will have to set up my torch and octopus a different way. Very comfortable when having to walk 100yds to the waters edge.

When I "added the water" everything came to hand as it should. Somewhat improved my diving experience and most importantly my safety.

Great wing at a great price

Very well built. Nice and light for travel and the locking system for the integrated weights is amazing.
