The Mares Prestige SLS is a traditional style BCD with excellent all round lift and a durable 420 denier cordura construction. The BCD features the latest Mares integrated weight system, rear trim pockets and their new inflator.
The Prestige SLS has an updated harness design and swivelling buckles on the shoulder straps for a more comfortable fit, hugging the side of the body down to the waist strap to help reduce rolling. The backplate isof a full height, rigid design with a cushioned backpad that offers plenty of support and features a grab handle at the top.
The BCD has a large, three-dimensional pocket which may sound strange but most BCD pockets are simply two layers of material next to each other with a zip at the top. The Prestige SLS pockets actually have space in them formed by the rigid frame of the integrated weight pocket. The new SLS weight system features a redesigned pull locking mechanism that is quick and easy to use. The left-hand pocket has pre-cut grommet holes that are ready to accept a Mares BCD knife.
To complete the weight system there is a trim pocket on each side of the tank strap that will accommodate approximately 2kg, allowing the diver to adjust their trim in the water for optimal orientation.
