Mares : Picture 1 regular $499.94

About Mares Package #1

Looking for a great package deal the Mares Package #1 consists of the following:
The new Rover 2S is an excellent choice for intensive rental use in the Diving Centers and for all divers who want reliability! The new R2S first stage is the evolution of the piston regulator. The first stage is made of marine grade brass with a sandblasted finish for increase scratch resistance. The protection cover of the first stage is designed to allow the installation of an optional RFID chip for rental use managed by dedicated PC software.

The lightweight compact and sturdy non-balanced first stage Flow-By Piston design with its Dynamic Flow Control (DFC) system minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during inhalation, making it possible to use a simpler and more reliable second stage regulator further increasing reliability. The DFC does not require any type of manual adjustment for the second stage due to the consistency of the stable air flow, even under extreme conditions. The first stage has a 7/16" UNF High Pressure Port and 4 Low Pressure Ports with 3/8" UNF Threads.

The Mid-Sized Techno-Polymer second stage regulator with its simple, yet reliable Downstream Demand Valve design has a Fluid Dynamic Deflector. This innovative deflector, developed after in-depth studies and tests of fluid dynamics, is engineered to receive and properly direct the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) system that creates a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center of the regulator that keeps the diagram down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.

Mares patented Mesh Grid design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water flowing onto the second stage diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in strong currents it eliminates the need for a knob to de-tune (make it harder to breathe) your air delivery system to stop the un-wanted free-flow: advanced technology through basic physics. This simple and reliable design makes for easy and reduced maintenance. First stage has one high pressure port and four low pressure ports. Rover 2S has a 3/8" threaded 31.5" (80 cm) hose, weighs 34.82 oz (987 g), comes with a Owner's Manual and is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

The Prestige is a mid-size octopus with a stylish design, strengthened by technology to give steady, natural and effortless breathing. All Mares second stages are a reliable downstream valve design and offer the unique patented Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.

The second stage cover features the new "mesh-grid" system for water inflow and outflow, which provides a further performance improvement. The patented mesh design of the second stage cover reduces the pressure of water flowing onto the regulators diaphragm and minimizes free-flow. Even in a strong current it eliminates the need for a knob to de-tune your air delivery system- advance technology through basic physics.

Furthermore, the compact and ergonomic exhaust tee ensures superior hydrodynamic performance and reduced exhalation resistance. The mouthpiece is made of soft hypoallergenic silicone: limiting jaw fatigue and offering a secure fit even after very long dives.

Mares Octopus Prestige incorporates the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, developed after in-depth studies and tests of fluid dynamics, is engineered to receive and properly direct the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the VAD system it delivers very natural and effortless breathing. Octopus has a Bright Yellow Cover and 39.4" (100 cm) 3/8" LP Hose for Easy Identification, weighs 13.76 oz (390 g) and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Genesis Compact Console is just that low profiled and ergonomically designed to fit in the hand comfortably, and is easy to read at a glance with its outstanding graphics. The Compact Console has an air filled depth gauge with a 0' to 200' readout and maximum depth indicator. The colored graphics allow quick glance monitoring with bright red depth indicators at strategic positions on the gauge face. The red indicators are at 0', 10' and then from depths beyond the standard sport limits of 130' to 200'. The depth range between 35' and 120' are in blue and bright orange markers indicate the deco-stop depths between 20' and 30'. Gauge face is luminescent for low light situations.

Pressure Gauge reads pressure up to 5000 psi and features a thermometer for temperature readings. As like the depth gauge, the SPG has high visibility graphics with bright red from 0 to 500 psi reserve air orange indicators between 500 to 1,000 psi for extended reserve air for deeper dives and blue between 1,500 to 5,000 psi and the gauge face is also luminescent.

Both gauges are small 1.75" diameter and protected by a sleek impact resistant rubber boot that has dual rubber eyelets for attachment of a lanyard or clip keeping the diver streamline and reef and environment conscious. Console also has a small slate located on the back side that can be removed to incorporate the compass option (see SKU: SWDCM6). Console is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

The Mares Rover PRO BCD is a rugged and "off road" Jacket Style BCD. Manufactured from UV Protected 1000 Cordura with an Internal Urethane Laminate this Strong and Hardy BCD is not subject to color fading, has Torso Adjustable Shoulder Straps, Adjustable Waist Strap and Cummerbund with Squeeze" Style Quick Release Buckles for a Custom Fit. Custom shaped Pockets keep the Octopus and Instruments close at hand.

Buoyancy control is established with the Ergo Inflator with 3/8" Threaded LP Hose, rear quick-dump/over-pressure relief valve and shoulder pull dump. 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. With Adjustable Chest Strap, Plastic D-Rings for Accessory attachment and 53.8 lbs (24.4 kg) of Lift, the Rover PRO BCD is a great choice for Buoyancy Control. BCD comes with an Owner's Manual and a 24 month limited warranty.

        Comments about Mares Package #1:

        You get what you paid for. Nothing can beat this price. The reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because the setup doesn't have quick release weight pockets. The kits are sold separately and LeisurePro is out of stock. I contacted Mares dealer and they will ship me i a months or so.

        Eventually a more serious diver would have to replace everything that comes with this package, but for occasional recreational diver the package is good enough.

          Comments about Mares Package #1:

          Great entry level package for those wanting to pursue diving without having the rent equipment all the time.

          BCD is simple to use with no extra frills. Weight integration upgrade kit is available for purchase (Unavailable at LeisurePro). Two large pockets allow for storage of slates and items you may find in the water. The pockets are a bit difficult to access when the vest is inflated.

          The regulators are of sturdy construction. Rarely free flows during surface swims which is a plus. Easy to breathe out of both the regulator and octopus and both offers little breathing resistance in all depths.

          Console is simple and very easy to read even in low/no light conditions. Does not come with a compass, so you'll have to buy your own.

          I have taken this set out on 15 dives already and have experienced no problems. The setup is very sturdy and can take some beating in some of the surf entires.

          Bottom line, for the price, you simply can't beat this package! A must have for individuals just finishing up dive training and would like to have their own entry level gear.
