Why are you not carrying the Mare Hybrid Pro TEC bc in you line anymore only on discount? I am using a 8 year old Zeagle Ranger how does this BC compare vs. a Aeris Jetpack Travel BC / Backpack, or Mares Hybrid AT with MRS Plus Weight System. i would stay with Zeagle but i want the intergrated weight systems of the new era designs? thank you, Gary
Mares discontinued that bc so we discounted the one we have left in stock. I personally also dive the ranger and love it. The Aeris jetback is kind of a gimmicky travel bc and wouldn't be similar to the ranger at all. The mares is a good alternative. The only problem would be getting use to the inflation/deflation system.
Hi, I would like to have some advice regarding BCDs. the models i have in mind are the Mares hybid pro tec, aqualung axiom i3, seac pro 2000 hd and seac3d bc. Which one is better on the other? do not like much corrugate but i wanna use also hybrid or back inflate bcd. Do you have an alternative to suggest? Thanks
Hello Danilo, if you are looking for a back infalte BCD and one that does not have a corrugated hose then I would suggest to you this BCD: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-3/006877/Aqua-Lung-SeaQuest-Dimension-i3-BC.html.
Does it Come with the octopus on the BC inflator hose . Thank you
Hello Nicolas, the built-in octo would be an add-on cost does not come with the BCD. If you are looking for that item here is the link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-33/035071/Mares-Alt-Air-Control-Integrated-Octo.html.

Need help choosing between pro tec and Tusa 7000. whats your suggestion
Hello Adam, Thank you for your inquiry! I'm recommending the Mares Hybrid Pro Tec Scuba BC over the TUSA Conquest ScubaBC BCJ-7000. The BCD's are very similar to each other in Form, Function and fit. But what makes the Mares BCD superior to the TUSA is the integrated weight pocket locking system. I owned a similar TUSA BCD with their locking weight system. Sliding the weight pockets into the slots was easy... It was the weight pocket locking mechanism that was difficult to manipulate. The Mares Locking system was simple. All you do is slide the male portion of the pocket into the receiving slot and listen for the "click"! When you hear the click, you know the weight pocket is securely fastened into the BCD. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-2/006842/Mares-Hybrid-Pro-Tec-Scuba-BC.html If you would like to place an order or have questions about our products, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: email@example.com

Hi there, Ive used a Mares Vector 1000MRS for the last few years and have been happy with it, however on a recent trip the rear section of the inflator horse completely ripped off so Im looking for a replacement. Whats the main difference between the Hybrid Pro Tech and normal Hybrid. Any pro / con for the two ?. In terms of size, there are just 3 std. sizes correct ?.
#1 Are these presently in stock?? #2 This will be my first BCD purchase is this one of the better values in a BCD?? #3 is this a very good quality ??? thanks Keith
A reviewer stated that they could not use their existing alternate inflator and had to buy a Mares version. Will my Oceanic Air XS2 Alternate Inflator work with this BCD?
i decided on the mares dragon but like the traveling options on the Hybrid Pro Tec BC now i dont know please help
Hello Eil, I would suggest going with the travel version. The travel version will work both in local and travel diving and you would reduce the weight you are carrying both above and below the water. Plus the travel BCD will also take up less space in your luggage for travel.
Hi, I just ordered the Mares Hybrid Pro Tec BC from you chaps. Understand that this model does not have in build rear trim weights. The Mares web site shows an add on "cruise ad on" , however I do not see this item available on your site ?. Please advise.
Hello Shivantha, the trim pockets you are looking for are the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-225/044049/XS-Scuba-Trim-Diving-Weight-Tank-Pouch.html. Those will attach to the tank band.

Can you compare the Mares hybrid pro tec and the mares hybrid. Other than the number of D rings what is the difference? I am looking for a good quality travel BCs for me and for my wife.
I have a question relating to sizing. Mares shows an XL for people 170 lbs and above. Thats a pretty big window. I am 58" tall, 245 lbs with a stocky build 50 inch chest and 40 inch waist. Will the XL fit a person of my size ? Thanks for your help.
Hello Mike, when you are sizing a BC. The two most important measurements are going to be your waist and height. Going by your measurements you would be a size Medium/Large.
Hybrid Pro Tec
A giant step in the evolution of back mounted BCDs
• Made with alutex, sturdy and durable
• Modular integrated weight system
• 10 metal D-rings, 3 of which customizable
The first thing you will notice when donning Hybrid Pro Tec is the perfect fit. This new level of comfort is achieved via special shoulder pads which are longer, pre-shaped and reinforced, and work in perfect unison with the lumbar suspension system. Hybrid Pro Tec feature 10 metal D-rings, 3 of which can be slid up and down along the shoulder pads, to accommodate any configuration needs. Made of very tough Alutex material, it will endure any exposure you submit it to and hold up to the test of time.
Furthermore, Hybrid Pro Tec is a modular BCD: the detacheable vest comprising the MRS plus system is removable, leaving a lean-and-mean travel BCD. This configuration can be expanded by adding the optional lumbar trim weight system and/or the Cruise Add-on pocket.
All current in line Mares B.C.D.s are compatible up to 40% Oxygen (EAN 40) right out of the box.

Air cell separated from the harness, resulting in unrestricted freedom of movement.
The standard inflation and deflation control device used in PADI training programs. Intuitive use and secure grip.
Ideal for traveling thanks to its reduced dimensions when packed and its marked weight reduction compared to a traditional backpack. Integrated rubber pads provide secure grip of the tank and carrying comfort.
Inspired by the design of modern hiking backpacks, the system avoids direct contact between body and tank support.
