Great All Around BC!

By Romeo R.

 -  Makati City, NCR, PH

Purchased these for myself, my wife and daughter last March 2016. We do warm water diving and have had more than 20 dives with it. Great all around BC - great fit, stable underwater and on the surface. Starting to customize it by taking away MRS and attaching aftermarket D-rings. Works great in either set-up. Recommended not just as your travel BC, but as your primary one!

 

Comfortable and made well

By Angus a.

It's very freeing around the body so if you hate the compression of a jacket BC, this is for you. Plenty of lift for me from the XS/S (I'm 5'10", 148lbs with a 31inch waist).

More simplicity for a back mounted BCD, and thanks to its extremely low weight and foldable backpack, it becomes the ideal companion for your travels. Weighing only 7 lbs. (3.2 kg), streamlined yet complete the Hybrid Pure surprises with its modularity and unique comfort, with its lumbar suspension system. The suspension system is inspired by the design of modern hiking backpacks; the system avoids direct-contact between the body and the tank support providing exceptional comfort. The construction of the air cell delivers extreme freedom of movement and makes it easier to achieve perfect buoyancy.

The Hybrid Pure is equipped with Mares MRS-Plus 13 lbs. (6 kg) Mechanical Release System in Medium, Large and X-Large and 8.82 lbs. (4 kg) in X-Small and Small. A simple click ensures easy and secure storage of the weight pockets. A single outward pull on the oversized handle releases the weights. If you don't need to use the maximum weight load each pocket has Velcro dividers to eliminate weight shifting adding stability to your dive.

Comfort is important, but durability means years of maintenance free use. The air cell of the BCD is made from durable 420 Cordura Denier Nylon with strong polyurethane inside. BCD is equipped with a folding zippered cargo pocket, 2-aluminum and 5-heavy-duty techno polymer D-rings for accessory storage and attachment. Padded shoulder straps, adjustable multi-point chest strap and a waist strap are all equipped with squeeze-style" side quick-release buckles that provide a custom fit and ease of donning and doffing.

Buoyancy control is established with the Ergo Inflator and two rear flat valve quick-dump/over-pressure relief valves. 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, the new flat valves geometry and design has reduced the size of the valves to a mere 0.86" (22mm) of height 30% less than past valves. The Hybrid Pure BCD provides 33.7 lbs. (15.3 kg) of lift in all sizes. BCD comes with a low-pressure hose with 3/8" thread and quick-disconnect coupling.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Lousy workmanship or I am just unlucky..

I am disappointed with the workmanship of the BCD, the zipper was torn the minute I try to unzip the pouch. I wonder if this is the reason why it is on sale.

Mares Rocks!

By Josh B.

from Golden, CO, US

It is perfect for my diving habits of 3-4 dives a year. I have had for years with no issues none so whatever.

 

great minimalist bcd

By B M.

from Tampa, FL, US

Has functioned very well for the past 3 years while also taking it as a travel bc. Not much as far as storage but I prefer less bulk. They trim pockets also are in a great position. Overall can't really find any issues. This BC has been on around 75 dives

 

Love it

By Jeffrey M.

Great BCD. Well made

 

I like it.

By Gary R.

from Ankeny, IA, US

I've had 40 dives so far with it and like it a lot. Recently I took a quick Caribbean trip, and traveled very light so decided not to bring it with. Of course, the first rental BC I used leaked in two places... Lesson learned: bring my own.

 

Best Buy

By HAL S.

from Milkburn, NJ, US

Fantastic BCD. Great value. This BC is lightweight and folds. Yet it has all features you need and high quality. Two trips so far and no problems at all

 

Great BCs, great price!

By GREG M.

from Centerville , UT, US

I have 2 of these BCs that I use for training my larger students and they work great. Very happy with the purchase. Thx again Leisure Pro!

 

Great!

By James G.

from Port St. Joe, FL, US

I love this bcd!! I have over 120 dives on it from North and Central Florida springs, Key Largo's reefs, to Panama City Beach wrecks. This bcd performs flawlessly. I have made a few adjustments to the bungee for the bladder but that's about it, no damage or problems so far.

Great BCD for recreational and travel

By Paul M.

from Mesa, AZ, US

I purchased this BCD after my Open Water class I have about 25 Dives on it now. Being a back inflate it does have a tendency to kick you forward if you over inflate it on the surface. Once you learn not to over inflate and keep your legs in front of you it's just fine. I immediately replaced the power inflator with an atomic ss1 so I cannot say how well it works. My wife used it to get her Open Water cert and immediately fell in love with it and we bought her one too. It folds up real nice and fits in a suitcase just great. It is lightweight and doesn't add much to the bag.

Underrated BCD

By Jaccol

This BCD is good example of underrated product. I've just made first 10 dives using this BCD in warm water. It is very easy to use, very easy to balance and comfortable to wear. After folding I packed this BCD, regulators, mask, snorkel and boots to the plane on board case.

 

Comfortable travel BCD even for everyday

By Kae T.

Wonderful service!

 

Mares Hybrid Pure - comfort & streamline

By Lulka111

I love this BCD - I did not want anything bulky and this is perfect - I actually took off the integrated weight pockets and use weight belt. It is also very comfortable and light. It folds up nicely - perfect for traveling.

 

Good for right needs

By JUSTIN H.

Nice BCD. Be mindful that this is a back inflated bcd so not the best bcd for floating on the surface as you are pushed to your stomach. Can be very compact if needed for travel.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Ashley B  I needed a travel BC and based off of the previous reviews I decided this fit the bill. I enjoy back inflation and this seemed perfect. I cant wait to use it in PR this winter! I'll provide an update after use.
WILLIAM R  We own a Mares BCD and love it. After looking at this one, with more features and a great price, seemed a no-brainer.
Darin P  Looks like a good value.
JAMES K  Travel friendly. Outgrew my other MARES BCD. I was very happy with my prior choice.
Michael J  excellent price and reviews. light weight and foldable
Yasmin D  For the size
Nathan S  Good value
Hatchterd H  Wife needs a new BCD had a garage sale and instead of selling her old one I sold her brand new one for $20...have another one
Chris W  Best price, great features!
Tatiana P  Very well recommended.
Matthew R  Best Price.
DEL W  Hell of a good price.
William N  Features and price along with reviews
Patrick V  due to the weight is integrated into the BCD
GREG M  I feel that these BCs offer excellent benefits at a really great price. I am a scuba instructor and want my students to have a BC that's easy to use but also makes them comfortable and safe.
Alan K  hi is this the BCD that is good if you have back issues ?
Leonardo P  it may help because has the silver in his pockets but also be aware the bcd is like a buoy and push you to the front in the water
Michael B  Yes, I have a back injury too. The design keeps the pack off the back with the suspension system.
Shopper  Hi! Im 5’4 and 145lbs.. im comfused as to what size i should get. Im worried if i gain a few lbs I wouldn’t be able to fit the size xs/s but if i get the m/l it would be too big for me?
JUSTIN H  I am 5’ 11” and 160lbs and the m/l works well for me. I am an average build and I tighten the chest strap all the way closed. I do feel the bcd length fits well as the bottom of it come just above by waist. I usually were Medium & Large shirts. I would say consider your normal shirt size as a good indicator of which direction to go.
