Great All Around BC!

Purchased these for myself, my wife and daughter last March 2016. We do warm water diving and have had more than 20 dives with it. Great all around BC - great fit, stable underwater and on the surface. Starting to customize it by taking away MRS and attaching aftermarket D-rings. Works great in either set-up. Recommended not just as your travel BC, but as your primary one!


Most Liked Negative Review


Lousy workmanship or I am just unlucky..

I am disappointed with the workmanship of the BCD, the zipper was torn the minute I try to unzip the pouch. I wonder if this is the reason why it is on sale.

Great Mares BCD!!!


from Tampa , FL, US

Absolutely love this BCD!!! First Dive out with it was off of Key Largo for a Shark Dive. Lightweight and offers additional freedom of movement with no cummerbund or side bladders. I highly recommend it!! Go Mares!!


Best Buy


from Milkburn, NJ, US

Fantastic BCD. Great value. This BC is lightweight and folds. Yet it has all features you need and high quality. Two trips so far and no problems at all


Great BCs, great price!


from Centerville , UT, US

I have 2 of these BCs that I use for training my larger students and they work great. Very happy with the purchase. Thx again Leisure Pro!


Nice BCD, just not smooshable


from Arlington, VA, US

This BCD is lightweight (7.7lbs at XS), big bang for the buck, feels durable, fits just right, and places the tank a little lower on your body. All told, this would have been a great BCD if I didn't already have one. The MRS seems very solid, I had to tug pretty hard to remove them. I'm not sure they're sliding out on people. The freedom of movement is pretty good, it'd just be nice if the weight pockets didn't jut out so much. I was looking for a really compact travel BCD, as most of my dives are overseas. Unfortunately, the folding design didn't allow this to compact smaller than my current older jacket-style BCD.




from Port St. Joe, FL, US

I love this bcd!! I have over 120 dives on it from North and Central Florida springs, Key Largo's reefs, to Panama City Beach wrecks. This bcd performs flawlessly. I have made a few adjustments to the bungee for the bladder but that's about it, no damage or problems so far.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GREG M  I feel that these BCs offer excellent benefits at a really great price. I am a scuba instructor and want my students to have a BC that's easy to use but also makes them comfortable and safe.
Tabor T  Does this BC come with a low pressure inflator hose?
WILLIAM R  I'm not sure I understand what you are asking? There is the standard snap on connector where the low pressure hose from the regulator attaches. This connector is part of the power inflator/manual inflator - deflator assembly.
WILLIAM G  The Mares Hybrid Pure BCD does not come with a low pressure inflator hose. I always attach my regulator hose from the air source to fill the BCD. I hope this answers your question. Bill Grego
Leonardo M  Can I use a standard crotch strap with it? I'm trying to find the Mares one but it is impossible.
WILLIAM G  Yes. The design of this Mares BCD includes on the rear a attachment device for a strap and on the front another attachment device. So, you are ok for a crotch strap if you need one. Bill Grego
andre i  Not sure what you mean... There is a small plastic ring on the lower back side, that's it. While this BCD is a wing, it is not designed for tech diving. I am not sure how useful a crotch strap would be for recreational diving.
