I thought it was comfortable, the adjustment straps get you a more custom fit. I was bummed that it did not have trim weight pockets in the back. It was shipped without the weight pockets, [...]You cannot beat the bargain in the Mares 2 package.
Good for recreation divers...

About Me Advanced Diver, Rescue Diver, Technical Diver
A decent BC for recreational use, especially given the value for the price. I would redesign the weight system, though, as it tends to float you face down on the surface. Like I said, a good value for the dollar!

All good except for MRS weight pockets
from Long Island, NY
Vector Epic lacks trim weight pockets, and the integrated MRS weight pockets are too tight -- tight even when there are no weights! Forget about putting 6-8 lbs of weights per pocket, you'll never get them in without struggling.All other features are good for this price point. I just keep most of the weights in the zippered pockets and put about 3-4 lbs per ditchable pocket which is enough to become positively bouyant in an emergency.I upgraded to the Dragon for better comfort and trim weight pockets, metal D-rings, better material, but the MRS weight system is still poorly designed.
Service and delivery comments:
Excellent service and delivery (next business day for me since LP is in NYC). No questions asked when I wanted to upgrade to the Dragon.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
