Rating: Mares Hybrid Pro Tec BC
Reviewer: Donald D.  -  View all my reviews
When I purchased this BC, I was concerned about the locking system for the weight pouches. It only has one lock with no backup system. Sure enough, the handle got bumped and I lost one pouch. I tried to order another from They were very non-supportive and could not not help me. I do like this BC for the rings and the lumbar pad. This is a good BC for my commercial diving with one important flaw. I have an Oceanic BC also that has velcro keeper as well as the lock device. This system is much better.

Rating: Great system
Reviewer: Jeff Hemsath  -  View all my reviews
The Integrated Octo works great. What they dont tell you is it comes with a kit to make it work on most B.C.s. Adapters, ties, and the pins for dump valve. Also the LP Quick connect hose is light weight braided. If you travel, the weight loss (no separate octo and hose)will help. The Reg functions well but not like a high $ octo. Breathing is a little hard, but it WORKS. Large fill and dump buttons, works good with cold water gloves. Old schoolers are used to the separate octo. This one is always right there. Nothing to "find" and unclip, just jam it in your pie hole and breath!
