Mares Open Water Silver Package
The Mares Abyss 22 is an award winning high performance regulator with a minimalist, lightweight balanced diaphragm first stage and responsive second stage with vortex assist for improved air flow. A wonderful smooth breathe with record performance down to 313m and 101 divers breathing simultaneously through just 1 first stage.
Record Setting Performance
The Abyss 22 is the regulator of choice for many record setting attempts down to 313m delivering a reliable breathe all the way down and back again. The MR22T 1st stage has been used in other record attempts including one to test it's performance by having 101 divers breathing simultaneously off just one 1st stage for 40 minutes.
These impressive records have real world benefits as a regulator that can perform at over 300m will work fine for a 30m dive off the coast and it is very rare that you will need to provide gas to 101 divers but you and a buddy can safely breathe off your single 1st stage with no loss of performance not matter how hard you breathe.
The MR22 1st stage has been stripped of all unnecessary metal to significantly reduce the overall weight of the 1st stage without affecting the structural integrity. This reduction in metal actually helps to increase the surface area of the first stage, improving the thermal characteristics of this already highly reliable regulator. The MR22 offers four low pressure and two high pressure ports at fixed angles.
The Abyss 2nd stage uses a full metal body to provide fantastic thermal properties, helping to reduce the risk of ice forming due to extremely low temperatures. A mesh grid incorporated into the front cover lowers the affect that water flow has on the diaphragm, helping to prevent freeflows in strong currents. The Mares Abyss also uses a bypass tube to the mouthpiece that creates a vortex inside the second stage body that draws in the diaphragm during inhalation, providing a lower breathing resistance at all depths.
The Mares Abyss Octopus is designed to be paired with the matching Abyss regulator to provide a full high performance coldwater regulator set up. The Abyss uses a full metal housing to provide excellent thermal transfer properties that help to improve cold water reliability and performance.
A bypass tube delivers air directly to the mouthpiece for rapid response that also works to create a low pressure area behind the diaphragm, drawing it inwards to opening the valve faster and wider for increased flow. This prevents a fluttering breathe so you always get a smooth delivery of air.
The Abyss Octopus is fitted with a mesh grid design that helps to reduce the impact that strong currents has on the diaphragm which might otherwise cause the valve to flutter or cause freeflows. The octopus also has a lightweight and flexible braided hose for increased safety and strength. The braided hose is significantly more resistant to UV and contamination damage that would quickly reduce the integrity of a rubber hose.
The Mares Mission 3 Gauge is an analog console with a pressure gauge depth gauge and a compact compass which is angled for optimal reading. The Mission 3 has a shock resistant case with mounting points all over it to clip it to a D-Ring.
Linear colour coded phosphorescent faces display information easily even in the dark as a simply flash of a torch will charge it up so you can read them in them at night.
The Mares Quantum BCD is the start of a new generation of BCDs with great comfort and practicality for any level of diver. The jacket style design will remind you of the BCD you learned to dive in but the enhancements all over the jacket will make this your chosen BCD for life. Swivelling shoulder strap buckles add comfort and the monoplate backplate combined with the lift allow the Quantum to take Twins with an upgrade.
Most pockets on BCDs are rigid and unforgiving so you can only fit thin flat objects inside them. Mares have changed this with their stretch material pockets that mould around your equipment so you can fit almost anything inside them.
Slide & Lock Weights
Integrated weights on either side of the BCD are held in place with the secure Slide Lock System, SLS, which provides a reassuring grip on your weights and a reliable quick release button in the ergonomic handle.
