Do you need a weight belt with this BC?
no you dont it has weight pouches
This Mares Prestige BC has no extra weight pockets. Therefore you need to use weight belt. I kindly suggest you to use weight belt even the BC's have extra weight pockets, for your safety. In this Mares BC you could put some weights into the pockets and the rest of the others can be put on the weight belt.Anyway this Mares Prestige BC is so durable and comfortable according to its price.
Yes you will need a weight belt for this bc.
This is not a weight integrated bc. It does have trim weight pockets, to hold 5 lbs each, that's it. So yes, you need a weight belt or like me I use a weight harness. I dive a drysuit, so I use a lot of weight. I personally don't care for a bc that is weight integrated, it makes them way too heavy to handle when donning and taking off. Also most won't float with all your weight in them, something to think about.
Yes, It has 2 pockets in back for trim weight. However it is not weight integrated, so you will need a weight belt.
Yes, although I just put my weights into the front pockets and the two trim ones on the back.
