Product Description


The Mares Prestige SLS BCD is a great buy for the price as it is extremely comfortable, durable and good looking with the new update in style and colour for this year. This incredibly good looking BCD with blue or white trimmings is super comfortable and comes with all the bells and whistles that any diver could want or need. The integrated weight pockets allow you to get rid of that old webbing weight belt and now place your weights into the padded pockets where you will not be able to feel them. The SLS integrated weight pockets hold 4kg in the small and medium, then 6kg in the large and X-large for each pocket. The new and improved SLS release and clip-in design was made as a visual so you can see clearly if the pockets are clipped in correctly or not. It will show red when unlocked and green for locked. There are two non-dumpable weight pockets at the rear of the BCD where you can place a few 1lb weights in each pocket to even you out.


The two Stainless steel and four heavy duty technopolymer D-rings allow you to clip any of your diving accessories on to without having the worry of them breaking or you can choose to use the rather large zip pockets if you do not like items hanging off you. The elastic cummerbund is forgiving and allows a comfortable fit and the swivelling adjustable buckles give that perfect fit each and every time. A dump valve is sitting on your right shoulder and one bottom right behind you, this allows you to quickly and easily dump all of your aim in any situation.  The Prestige SLS is made from a 420 denier nylon that is durable and robust and there is an attachment point for the Mares Force Knife to be fitted. 


Overall the Mares Prestige is a great entry level price pointed BCD with a durable and tough reputation.
