Not a fan

By terry j.

from Lake Worth, FL, US

I'm not crazy about it it's heavy bulky and the weight pockets are hard to click in. I also needed a small instead of a medium. They must run large.


Not recommended

By Pamela J.

The Mares Prime BCD did not provide a comfortable fit. Integrated weight fell out after being double checked twice by me and buddies before dives. The cummerbund and straps left the vest feeling wide around my waist and the vest kept shifting during dives.
