About Mares Cruise Backpack Pro with Wheels & Telescopic Handle

Ideal for travelers, well groomed in every detail


Cruise Backpack Pro is the flagship of the new Mares Cruise collection. Large and durable wheels, telescopic handle, external fin pocket, spiral zippers, padded shoulder strap, stainless steel rivets, additional beauty case with mirror inside, and nylon cover for added protection. All Mares bags include rugged and durable constructed wheels. With a diameter of 3.5 (9 cm) and a with a tire tread 1.2 (3cm) wide, they can maneuver over streets, through airports and to your dive with no problem. All Mares bag wheels are attached with stainless steel screws. This system makes the wheels much more durable than bags using rivets.

When the terrain gets a bit rough, with little effort this large piece of luggage can be transformed into a comfortable Backpack. A big pocket positioned under the bag's case contains two big and soft shoulder straps. In a minute your wheeled bag becomes a backpack. Additionally, the innovative Mares x-strap System converts the traditional handles, by attaching to a metal snap hook, into the shoulder straps of the bag. Just put the padded shoulder straps over your shoulders and you can maneuver through the busiest airport terminals, sandy beaches, up or down boat ramps and docks or staircases.

Mares' biggest bag is ideal for a long trip with its telescopic handle. Hidden in a pocket on the top of the bag this handle, when needed can be extended, making it very easy to pull and maneuver the bag, even when the bag is full of dive equipment. This durably constructed bag is made of strong 600 Denier Nylon and heavy duty PVC, with sturdy spiral zippers and zipper pulls. The detachable pocket is an extremely useful additional bag. Handy as a small toiletry or beauty case ideal for travel or during a tour, just unzip it from the main bag and you can freshen up without dragging the entire bag with you into the rest room, head or shower.

Plenty of room in the main compartment with an overall bag dimensions of 18.5 L x 12.5 W x 31.5 H (47 x 32 x 81 cm) and a volume of 4.5 cu ft (128 liters). Enough room for a full set of cold water equipment or two sets of warm water gear. Large and ample side fin pockets add to the versatility of this strong and durable travel bag system. With additional top padded handle and hard plastic base with handle, you're ready for your next diving adventure. Bag weights 11 lbs (5 kg) and comes with a 24 month limited warranty.

This is a great dive bag/luggage. I was able to fit 2 sets of fins, 1 pair in each side pocket, as well as the usual gear for 2 divers with no problems at all. There was ample room to fit clothes, other travel items as well. The extra pockets are very handy, and there are a lot of them.

The materials used are top notch and the construction is of very high quality...this bag has been a great investment and I can tell it will last for many, many years to come. This is a very durable bag and probably the best piece of luggage I own.

The only drawback is that the size of the bag is very large and it is very easy to overpack the weight for an international flight...I recently took a trip and had to remove items on both flights due to the weight. Be very cautious of how you pack this bag or you will pay extra at the airline check in counter.

    Comments about Mares Cruise Backpack Pro with Wheels & Telescopic Handle:

    In search for a travel/dive bag, I looked and researched diligently. This unit is by far, exceeding my desires for containing all my gear. As many stated, watch your load weight if flying. Very easy to overload, given its size. It is larger than most full-sized luggage. I really like that it holds ALL of my gear, lessening the chance of leaving something behind. Once equipment is dry, I do use it for storage and always stored in the air conditioned house.

      I can carry all my gear and still have plenty of room to pack at least a week's worth of clothes and still be under the 50 lb weight limit for flying.

      Comments about Mares Cruise Backpack Pro with Wheels & Telescopic Handle:

      Wow... Mares has built a very nice product here. Great feel, look, design and price!!! Lots of room for almost anything. I do not scuba yet, just snorkeling. I do travel quite a bit and needed a roller backpack for all kinds of different travel needs. This Mares Cruise fit the bill to a "T"... When I'm not traveling to a destination with a place to snorkel I can use this roller just like any other type of suitcase.

        Got to use this a couple of weeks ago on our trip to Cabo. Fin pockets are great. Was just under 50# with two sets of gear, which is exactly what I expected.

        Comments about Mares Cruise Backpack Pro with Wheels & Telescopic Handle:

        The only real complaint I have it is very easy to over pack the bag, as it is very roomy. I was able to put 2 BC's, 2 sets of fins, goggles, 1 shorty wetsuit, and 2 sets of boots and come in just under the 40lb weight limit of Allegiant Airlines. This bag is great, and will be our new travel bag no matter where we go.
        It does come with a cover for travel, and a small vanity bag with mirror.
        I would rate this a '10' if it were possible.
