the info in the ask the pro section on this pegasus bc is inaccurate, there are no zippered pocket and there are 2 attachable trim weight pockets. it has 1 large pocket that unrolls & hangs down below bc & is helt rolled up when not in use by velcro..had to attach trim weight pockets to tank strap w 10 lb.of weights out of a total of 18 lbs.if all weight is put in mrs pockets bc keep me face down on surface..i dove 6 days, bc was new on first day i had trouble with zipper on one of the mrs weight pockets.. on day 6 pocket would not zip shut, had to use duck tape to wrap it shut,zippers on mrs pockets are sub standard i will send that pocket back for warranty replacement..with that said, bc operates great and is very comfortable..

First BC and new diver

    Comments about Mares Pegasus BCD with MRS Plus Weight Pockets, Black:

    Just started diving. So, take this review from the viewpoint of a novice. The dive shop had a few different types and brands of BCs to use. I gravitated to the back inflated BCs because I liked the way they fit on me and didn't squeeze me on the sides of the chest during inflation. Also, I felt like I had a greater freedom of movement with my arms. I used the Aeris EX Lite at first. But, I wasn't as comfortable in it and it tended to try to lift above me. I tried the Aeris EX 200 as well and it felt the same as the Lite. A fellow student recommended the Mares Pegasus BC to me to try. I did some reasearch on the Internet and liked what I saw from other divers about the Pegasus. I found Leisure Pro had a good deal on returning it if I didn't like it whatsoever. So, I took the chance and ordered it. I have sinced used it on a couple of dives, including certification dives. I really liked the way it fit on me. It felt more secure and the crotch straps did the trick of keeping the BC from trying to lift above me. The straps were easier to identify and adjust. Underwater, I found I could tweak the BC's bouyancy better than the Aeris to achieve neutral bouyancy. On top of the water, it does have a tendancy to tip me face first into the water. But, the Aeris did too and from I understand from talking to more experienced divers, they all to some extent do that. Since I don't plan to spend that much time on top of the water, it really isn't an issue. Very pleased with the BC.

      Comments about Mares Pegasus BCD with MRS Plus Weight Pockets, Black:

      This is a great back inflate BCD. Fits comfortably, is very adjustable and durable. Crotch strap adds security and the convenience of integrated weight. It compacts well for packing and travel. Back inflation style allows for free movement of the arms, grater adjustability and eliminates the "squeeze" feeling of jacket style BCDs.

      This was a replacement for my ScubaPro KnightHawk (lost weight and it was too big). The Mares Pegasus seems to be of comparable quality at a quarter of the price.

      Comments about Mares Pegasus BCD with MRS Plus Weight Pockets, Black:

      I wanted to try a back-inflator, and I chose a good brand with a good rep. This BCD was perfect for me. With this one, I no longer have side bladders doing weird exchanges as I tilt left and right. The buoyancy stays fairly neutrally above me when at depth, and allows for full arm movement. It packs more easily than my old non-weight-integrated full vest.

      It will try to put you face-down at the surface, and the trick there is to arch your back and stay on top of it while letting your legs dangle. Since the important portion is the bottom time, mastering this was a welcome trade-off for me.

        So far so good.
        I added trim pockets to the tank strap of my BSD . Putting 2-3 pounds in each pocket is perfect for trim and helps counter the forward lean of a back inflation system if you are not used to it. I dove these the day after I got them and they are perfect for the trim application.
