          Comments about Mares Kaila Women's BC with MRS Plus Weight Pockets, Black/Blue Fog:

          I was first reluctant buying online as at the end of the day it's about the fit, but based on previous recommendations I did order it, and I absolutely love it. [...] The BCD is very comfortable, and it fits me like a glove, doesn't move around and once used to integrated weights system it is just so much better than anything else I'd tried before. It has a lot of pockets and rings which I was looking for, as I carry a lot to clip there. It is a little heavier than you might be accustomed to, however, doesn't matter to me as I live where I dive and only travel three times a year with the gear. Also, you get quickly used to it and adjust your weights. Perfect fit for me!

          Comments about Mares Kaila Women's BC with MRS Plus Weight Pockets, Black/Blue Fog:

          This BC is extremely comfortable. Air is evenly distributed so you don't even feel your tank is there! I usually get a sore back after a week of diving, but this BC is pain-free. It's easy to adjust, and is nice and simple but also very functional-lots of D-rings and clips. Dries quickly, nice cozy fleece lining for skin diving. Only con is small pocket size: I'm a scientist and I often have to carry a lot in my BC, but the pockets are only big enough for a bundle of baggies or an extra mask.

            I have no complaints about this product! I dive in cold water (40-50 degrees), using a dry suit, requiring quite a bit of weight. I have never had a problem fitting all of my weights into the pockets (one time 40+ lbs). It is easy to put on and take off, in and out of the water.
