I have done about 30 dives with this gear in the Seychelles. At first I was using rental gear, but I was out here long enough to have this gear sent out to me and it has made my diving experience a lot better out here. The dive computer is easy to use and the regulator pushes the air into my lungs at deep depths. I typically dive at 40m and I have no problem breathing with this gear.

I have less than 10 dives after completing my open water cert. I am happy with the package with the exception of the BCD. The back inflate BCD with side weight pockets make it very hard to balance. I had to add a few lbs of weight to my back on a belt to get it straight. I also don't like the plastic tank buckle. It should be steel. Other than that the package is a great value and im happy with it.

If you bought each piece on its own you would pay over $1700.00. This is a quality selection of top rated gear. I dont think you can beat the price or selection

      Comments about Mares Package #3:

      I just put 17 immersions to this gear and it performed flawlessly.
      Regulator: Confortable, great flow of air even at deep dives.
      BCD: Bit heavy for traveling but not an issue for me. Really confortable in the water. The weight system worked perfectly (just make triple sure it's locked propperly). Enough D rings to hold everything i needed.
      Computer: SO easy to use!! Easy to read!! I was missing a console holder wich I'm gettint ASAP.
      It was an amazing choice, so happy with my new gear.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  I am 198 lbs, 34 inch waist, 45 inch chest, and large shoulders. I am not sure which is the correct size ?
        ROBERT H  Go with the large, with your chest size and shoulders that will probably be better for you. Btw this is a great package deal. I was surprised during my scuba scuba diving experiences to find that breathing through my regulator was easier than breathing air throughout the day on land! No effort needed at all! Even the octo line I found breathes easier than some of the primary regulators other people were using!
        Shopper  Can I order this package with the Aeris Epic Hoseless Wrist Computer instead of the Mission Puck 3?
        LeisurePro S  If you call our sales department at 888-805-3600, we'll be able to set up a custom package for you.
        miguel g  is the regulator balanced?
        ROBERT H  This regulator is easier to breath through than breathing air throughout your normal day on land! The air is soft and just....relaxing.
