Product Overview

Featuring the latest technologies to provide easy, natural breathing when you need it most, the Mares Prestige Octopus is a great choice for a medium-sized alternate air source.  With a soft yellow purge button and highly visible yellow, braided hose, the Prestige Octo is easily identifiable in an out of air scenario.  


Mares’ proprietary VAD System (Vortex Assisted Design) promises excellent and natural breathing at any depth.  Another advantage of the VAD system is related to the bypass tube, through which most of the air is delivered. In cold water diving, this system prevents ice crystals (which can be generated by the expansion of humid air in cold temperatures) from interfering with the proper operation of second stage components.


Mares Prestige Octopus  incorporates a Fluid Dynamic Deflector which was developed after in-depth studies and tests of fluid dynamics.  It is engineered to receive and properly direct the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the VAD system it delivers very natural and effortless breathing. The mouthpiece is made of soft hypoallergenic silicone which can limit jaw fatigue and offers a secure fit even after very long dives.


Mares’ Mesh Grid is a patented design which reduces the impact of water flow onto the second stage diaphragm, eliminating free flows even in strong currents.  Constructed of Ultralight Techno Polymer, the Prestige Octopus is abrasion resistant and affordable.  It is ideal for diving in warm and moderate temperatures.  


The SuperFlex hose is a bright yellow, 3/8" threaded high flow hose and is 39.4" (100cm) in length. The regulator’s total weight is 13.33 oz. (378 g). The Mares Prestige Octopus is nitrox ready up to 40% oxygen out-of-the-box.
