The Mares Kaila SLS BCD is a tough jacket style BCD designed for the female diver to be more comfortable than unisex jackets. Built very similar to the Dragon the Kaila benefits from flexible pockets and Mares' new SLS weight pocket system.
The shape and design of the bladder combines the best parts of a wing style bladder and a jacket style wrap-around for a comfortable BCD with plenty of lift that holds you in a good position under the water and on the surface.
The bladder wraps around your cylinder, holding it steady on your back without twisting or turning and also holds you horizontal in the water when the BCD only has a little amount of air in it. When you fully inflate your BCD on the surface it will hold you in a head up position so you save energy in the water waiting for the RIB.

Mares Kaila 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.
|All round lift|
?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.
