Magellan BCD

£226.00 RRP £269.00 In Stock

Brand: Mares

Model: Magellan BCD

SKU: 81886-2

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

The Mares Magellan BCD is a lightweight BCD weighing in at an impressive 2.1kg. Stripped down to its basics the Magellan still functions as a modern wing-style BCD but at a fraction of the weight.

Who's the Magellan For?

The Magellan, much like it's name-sake explorer, is built to travel the globe. With more and more divers travelling to distant countries to go diving the Magellan makes this easier without adding too much weight to their luggage.

The Patented shoulder strap design is ergonomic so they sit comfortably on your shoulders and bend around your arms. 

Recommended Accessories

Most dive sites require each diver to have a dSMB with them in the water so they can be seen on the surface easily. The Mares All In One dSMB is a great package that includes a spool and SMB all in one compact package.

Features

  • integrated quick-release weight system
  • optional trim weight (to be placed on the tank band)
  • foldable with no rigid backpack
  • strap loop backpack feature for easy adjustment
  • 1 roll-up pocket
  • concave ergonomic shoulders

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

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

A really beautiful BCD!

I heard very few things about this BCD around the web. I was looking for reviews, experiences, but since it's so new, there isn't much to find besides videos showing its features.

So here it goes, a genuine user review: This BCD is amazing! Is so light and well designed! They are not playing around when they mention its ergonomic design. It does feel ergonomic! The feelign when wearing it outstanding, it almost feel that you are not wearing anything at all (besides the tank of course). it perfectly molds into your body. (mine at least).

It has the right amount of rings (unlike others that make you look like a Christmas tree).

The materials are solid, very well though and the integrated weights system works like a charm.

something that is not mentioned anywhere, is that it has some sort of solid flat material (sort of a light plate) at the bottom, so the tank doesn't hit your lower back, which is great.

Unlike the reviewer from SS, I do love the end of the shoulder straps. it's comfortable and feels nice than just a standard ring. The hidden pocket is nice, not super big. Perhaps for putting some camera lenses. Not big enough for a smb or an extra mask like someelse suggested.

I also love the knife grommet holes on the side (where the left weights are). I attached my ScubaPro knife on it without issues.

The design itself its fantastic, outstanding color combination. Not boring at all. I thinks is among the most beautiful BCDs out there!
