Rating: Mares Prestige 2 MRS Plus BC Review - Scuba Gear Reviews
Reviewer: James K Melrod
I recently needed to replace my BC and checked out numerous choices before deciding on this. It has all the features I was looking for including some very functional pockets and lots of D rings. It is a 5. It is on the heavy side and pretty bulky. It might be a bit much for travel but for local San Diego diving its perfect.

Rating: Great BC!
Reviewer: Jim M.
I used this BC for several dives at Maui (Molokini Crater). Loved it! Very comfortable, easy to use, keeps you high on the surface. Super simple to add weight. Very rugged which makes it a bit heavy at 9.25 lbs (4.2 KG). A bargain at around $300.

I bought this BC for my husband for Christmas and he was totally happy with the selection. He tried it on and fits really well. He cant wait until he can actually use it. There was some initial issues with the ordering and shipping but once that got straightened out all was good.

Just purchased this a few weeks ago and used it in Roatan. Not too heavy to travel with. Lots of D rings in the right locations. Great value!

Questions and Answers for Mares Prestige 2 MRS Plus BC:

  • gerard:

    hi,ive been diving a scubapro jacket style bc,i love the companys cinch strap tank band.its idiot proof,no slipping,no pulling of straps and question is what kind of system does mares use to secure a tank?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Gerard, this does not have the same type strap system as the ScubaPro version. It has a tighting strap system the strep does not disconnect so you will have to fit the strap over the tank to put it into the correct postion. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Andrew:

    can you upgrade this BC to a twin set configuration

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Andrew, no you would not have that option. The bladder of this BC would not work with all of that extra weight.

  • chuck:

    getting new BC read scubalabs review of the mares presige 2 and gets great reviews.Thinking of this bc or a scubapro glide X.Would like your input as to which one.Also does a oceanic alternate air fit on the prestige2?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Chuck, no the Oceanic Air 2 will not fit on this BCD, As for between this BCD and the ScubaPro I would suggest the ScubaPro. The backpad and the jacket itself just feels better and is a more comfortable BCD.

  • chuck:

    want to order the mares prestige 2 with mares air attached.When i go to pay with paypal the mares bcd charges me shipping.It says free shipping.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Paypal is simply a credit card processing method. It should not add shipping charges for ground shipping rates. If you continue to have troubles please contact our instructors at

  • Roxanne:

    I would like to purchase this BCD for my husband as a gift but not sure what size. He is about 5 10", weighs about 235 - 240 and his waist is about 38 inches. Would I purchase a large or Xlarge. Thank you for your help.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello, you would want an XL.

  • peter:

    what is the dry weight & how well does it pack ?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello, the weight of the BC is 8lbs. This is a bulky bc so it wont to easy to back. Check out the Zeagle Stiletto BC its light compact and rugged.

  • Kenneth:

    Does the Mares Prestige 2 MRS Plus BC come with weights or do you have to purchase this separately? If so, what is the recommended weight system for this BC?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    BCD''s do not come with the weights. That would be a separate purchase. Weight integrated bcd''s will use most any form of diving lead, although the shot bags seem to work the best.

  • craig:

    im looking at this and just wanted to verify size large or xl. Im 62 200lbs and about 34 to 36 on my waist. ill be using it in colder conditions in a 7mil suit normally

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Large would be the correct size.

  • leonard:

    Hi, im just wondering if the low pressure inflator hose comes with the BCD or do i have to purchase it separately? Thanks!

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    yes all BC come with the inflator hose.
