The Mares Kaila SLS BCD is their flagship BCD designed specifically to fit women more comfortably and features a hybrid style bladder that combines the benefits of both a backmount and traditional BCD.
The Kaila SLS is a high specification woman's BCD that is extremely comfortable to use, fits well and it loaded with features. The harness is well padded and designed to offer excellent fit and prevent unnecessary movement of the body with the harness that would cause the diver to become unbalanced. The backplate is well padded and a depth compensating cummerbund ensures a consist fit throughout the dive.
The Kaila SLS features a standard style inflator system with inflate, deflate and pull to deflate functions as well as a right shoulder and rear right kidney dump. The BCD is fitted with the latest Mares SLS weight system that uses a pull to release mechanism and a visual indicator to show correct positioning and locking of the weight pouches. Rear trim pockets offer additional weight balancing options.
There are also two large zipped pockets with stretch panels and grommet holes above the left pocket to mount a Mares BCD knife.
Thinking about getting a ladies BCD but not sure what the benefits would be? Read our 'Why Choose a Women's BCD' article to find out how they differ from a standard BCD.
