Prestige SLS BCD

£286.00 RRP £337.00 In Stock

Brand: Mares

Model: Prestige SLS BCD

SKU: 72327-1

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

The Mares Prestige SLS BCD is a tough and durable BCD with plenty of all round lift, an updated inflator system, integrated weight and also great styling details.


The BCD bladder is made entirely from hard wearing Cordura material, a heavier weight for the pocket areas and a lighter weight over the bladder to prevent excessive overall weight. The harness has been re-designed over the shoulders and chest for a more comfortable fit. The quick release shoulder buckles have been given a swivelling joint to allow a more natural fit around the diver and down to the waist.


The sides of the BCD feature the SLS integrated weight system and a large zipped pocket that expands towards the back of the BCD to provide a surprisingly high volume storage pocket. The integrated weight system uses a pull to release locking mechanism to ensure a secure fit into the slots. BCD sizes small and below can accommodate 4kg of weight in each pocket whereas medium and above BCDs will accept up to 6kg each. The left hand pocket also features grommet holes to accept a BCD knife.


The Ergo inflator has been given a refresh with a more compact design. The deflation dumps have also been given a new low profile look. The full rigid backplate is cover with a cordura lined padded backpad to provide shock absorption. A grab handle protrudes from the top of the backpad to aid secure and safe lifting once fitted to a cylinder.

Mares Prestige SLS BCD - Features

FeatureProduct Specification
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 Close.
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. Close.
Floatation Type
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. Close.
All round lift
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.
Quick Release Buckles
Quick release buckles aid donning and removal of the BCD with minimal effort Close.
Side Pockets
Main side pockets for storage Close.
Single Pouch Capacity (kg)
The recommended maximum weight for each integrated weight pouch (based on medium BCD) Close.
Single Trim Capacity (kg)
The recommended maximum weight for each trim weight pocket Close.
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. Close.

Mares Prestige SLS BCD

I chose mares because of what I had heard from others as to quality and also as throughout. My time diving, I had found their kit to be comfortable and functional.

I must say I was not disappointed.

I wanted a BCD with integrated weight pockets and trim weight pockets so I would not have a need for a weight belt, in an attempt to improve my trim and breathing techniques.

Having tested the kit in St brides bay Pembrokeshire on Sunday. Complete success there
