Mares Silver Knight Single Backmount Set Product Description


The Mares Silver Knight Single Backmount Set is part of Mares XR Tech range and this is a fantastic way to purchase the set with regards to value for money. Although it is part of the Tech range, many recreational divers choose to dive with this set up as it is very minimal yet extremely durable. It is made up of a 16L single Donut with a 3mm aluminium backplate and the heavy llight webbing harness. There are 5 x 6mm aluminium D-rings for attaching your accessories and has 2 tank straps with buckles. The minimal set up allows for maximum movement which feeling that compressing feeling when the donut is inflated. 


The 16 Litre donut is a unique designed single tank bladder that allows the tank to nest inside sitting extremely close to you. The outer is made from a 1200D ballistic nylon with the inner air cell made with a black polyurethane making it extremely durable. There is a zipper that allows you to get in to the bladder itself if you ever need to replace it or fix and holes. The XR Donut is of course a donut style bladder which means that air goes the entire way around, preventing air getting trapped in pockets. There are 4 attachment holes for the back plate and 4 slots to fit your tank band through. On the shoulder is the low profile inflator hose with a corrugated hose which leads down to a rubberized k valve. It is off set which is perfect for a single tank. A dumb valve or over flow valve is on the bottom right easy access and there are 4 drainage holes in the bladder, 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom. It is made with top quality materials and is durable and resistant to tears and abrasions


The Mares XR 3mm Aluminum Back Plate is made from an 6061 marine grade anodized corrosion resistant aluminum. It weighs approximately 750g which is extremely light weight and the ideal item for traveling. This item is designed to attach to the harness and to hold the bladder and padding. This means that there are many attachment points that are laser etched in to the plate. It is slightly contoured for perfect positioning whether it is for one or twin tanks and has an ultra rugged back bone. There are 8 slots specifically designed for you to get the perfect position with your harness and multiple holes for attachments, whether it be for the bladder, dry suit pony bottle or cylinder bands. The 3 holes on the top of the back plate offer a range of height adjustments for the bladder and cylinders.


The Mares XR Heavy Light Duty Harness is made with a heavy duty webbing that attaches to your choice of back plate for technical diving. This particular harness consists of 3.5m of webbing which makes the harness with center hole and grommet, 3 x 40mm elastic loop retainers and 1.5m of webbing for the crotch strap. Then the extras are 5 x Aluminum D-rings, 7 x Bar slides and 1 x waist buckle that is also aluminum. It is a black corrosion resistant aluminum that is extremely light weight, perfect for travel. It is completely adjustable so does not come in sizes, it is one size fits all. When technical diving the great feature is making your equipment exactly what you want. This means that you can modify each part to create what works best for you are your type of diving
