About Mares Hybrid She Dives BC with MRS Plus System

What do you get when you combine a special cut in a Jacket Style BCD dedicated to the female body, seamless shoulder straps detachable from the air cell, soft yet durable materials and overall light weight? The ideal buoyancy compensator for female divers! Add exclusive styling, Trim Weight pouches integrated in the back pack and the MRS-Plus weight integration system and you are one step away from becoming a mermaid!

The Foldable Backpack System maximizes the blend of comfort, lightness and size. The grip provided by the rubber portion of the backpack in contact with the tank, when open it ensures total stability and comfort of a long backpack, but when folded it's 30% shorter than a traditional backpack. The honeycomb structure makes it 40% lighter than a traditional backpack, making this the perfect travel BC. The Quick-Pak system makes it easy to compact and transport the BC with a few simple moves. Once closed it is minimal 17" x 12" x 12" (45 x 30 x 30 cm) in size and can easily be transported in your suitcase or a small travel backpack.

The Hybrid is equipped with Mares MRS-Plus 13 lbs (6 kg) Mechanical Release System. A simple click ensures easy and secure storage of the weight pockets. A single outward pull on the oversized handle releases the weights. If you don't need to use the maximum weight load each pocket has Velcro dividers to eliminate weight shifting adding stability to your dive. Two trim weight pockets attached to the tank strap hold an additional 10 lbs (4.5 kg) between the two pockets.

Comfort is important, but durability means years of maintenance free use. The outside of the BCD is made from durable 420 Cordura Denier Nylon with strong polyurethane inside. Seven lightweight aluminum D-Rings and grommets for accessory attachments and Mares Force Knife Collection allows maximum accessorizing.

Buoyancy control is established with the Ergo Inflator and two rear flat valve quick-dump/over-pressure relief valves. The Ergo is the standard inflation/deflation control unit on Mares BCD's, the Ergo inflator has been designed according to ergonomic guidelines. Intuitive to use and offers maximum grip. The new flat valves geometry and design has reduced the size of the valves to a mere 0.86" (22 mm) of height 30% less than past valves.

With adjustable and removable chest strap, zippered pockets, ergonomic transport handle, and lots of lift 38.2 lbs (17.4 kg) in the M/L size makes this one great BCD. The Hybrid comes in three sizes and has a 24 month limited warranty.

    Comments about Mares Hybrid She Dives BC with MRS Plus System:

    I was a little nervous about getting a BCD that I had not tried out previously, but through trial and error with other rental BCD's I knew the features I did want. This fit the bill and I definitely enjoyed it. The only issue I had was the shoulder pull is not easy to grab onto, it's a bit small. Did 7 dives with it without any problems and look forward to more.

    Comments about Mares Hybrid She Dives BC with MRS Plus System:

    Very handy BCD for travelling due to the folding option. Very light, loads of metal rings to attach tools. Suits very comfortable and great material around the lower back. The weight pockets are a bit loose.

    Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

    Questions about this item:

    Generosa L  Can this BCD fit into a carry on? I'd like to use this in the tropics as well as cold water dives.
    JO ADRIENNE A  If you are just bringing this one, then the answer is yes. If you are going to bring your entire primary gears, the answer is NO. Even though you can fold this it is still bulky. I recommend to have a separate bag for your gears. I will recommend buying this product Mares Cruise X-strap foldable duffle bag, or the same dimension. I went to Coron, Palawan for some wreck dives and the bag is very handy. I fitted my boots, fins, regulator, BCD, camera with a lot of room to spare. If you are being minimal, you can put your daily essentials in here too. The bag is very sturdy, have a lot of pockets. I hope I answered your inquiry, I will be online for a few more hours I can wait for your follow up questions if you have any. Have fun diving. :D
    Shopper  is this BCD a travel light bcd?
    COPIOUS C  yes
    Duncan M  HI, is a size medium in this BCD the same as a medium in the Womens Kaila BCD? Thanks
    Frank L  More than likely the Small/Medium would fit you if you wear a Medium in the Kaila.
