        Comments about Mares Prestige BC with MRS Plus Weight Pockets:

        The guys at the local dive shop do not carry Mares products, but they were REALLY impressed when I showed up for a dive with it. The integrated weight system works really well; it has large pockets; plenty of accessory attachment locations; trim pouches on the back; and it fits like a glove!
        I am a firefighter and I prefer my BC to fit a little snug like my SCBA (breathing apparatus) would. This has plenty of adjustments to get the feel I want. I am 6 ft, 210 and bought a Large - but like I said, I prefer it snug (not tight) - I have seen people wear a BC where you could see daylight between their back and the back of the BC.
        Now my wife is going to start diving, and this will be the BC we get her, hands down. My other experiences were with ScubaPro BC's

            Comments about Mares Prestige BC with MRS Plus Weight Pockets:

            Overall this is a great BCD. The only complaint I have is that the weight system takes up the pocket room. I used it for a rescue class and while there is plenty of room to store my pocket mask, once at the surface and my BC was inflated it was difficult to remove from the pocket.

                  Lost my weight system for the second time what a bummer. Poorly constructed system. Love the bc but the mrs system really [*]. Got over a 100 dives and will be changing soon
