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 buckles.my question is what kind of system does mares use to secure a tank?
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.

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.
Can you use the Aqua Lung Airsource 3 with this BCD? I prefer that over standard octo.
Hi Barry, This bcd can''t use the Airsource 3. Here is the Mares octo. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-33/035071/Mares-Alt-Air-Control-Integrated-Octo.html
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?
