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.
