Mares Magellan BCD Product Description


The Mares Magellan BCD is an extremely light weight BCD that is perfect for travelling divers who need to save on space and weight in their luggage. It is a rear inflation backpack style that comes with full weight integration with an option to add trim weights on to the tank band. Being extremely light weight weighing only 2.4kg, this BCD will be your best friend when trying to save on weight. The full weight integrated pockets click securly in to place with durable bright red buckles that are easily removed using a pinch and pull motion. The backpack rear inflation design is popular for travellers as it is compact and allows for maximum movement when strapped in. The minimal barely there harness allows for comfort yet stability and the contoured shoulder straps keep the BCD in place without any restriction. The Magellan has padding on the back, under the waist band and around the collar for the ultimate comfort travel BCD. 


Not having a rigid backplate means that it can be folded up to over half its size for luggage and storage. There are four aluminium D-rings on the Magellan including two smaller on the shoulder straps and two larger under the weight pockets. A handy roll out pocket sits below the right weight pocket with a sturdy zipper to keep any accessories you may need including a safety sausage, torch or slate. 


If you are looking for the best buy for travel then look no further, the Magellan is the one for you.
