SLS: A new level of safety and ease of use:
Mares introduces a new integrated weight system for BCs. The system appears for the first time on the new Quantum BC, and is the result of years of studies towards a safer and more user-friendly weight system.
A weight system has to perform only two tasks, but flawlessly: On the one side, accidental release of a weight pouch has to be avoided. On the other, in case of an emergency, the diver must be able to ditch the weight pouches in a simple and intuitive way, even when stressed and panicking.
In addition to these two key aspects, it certainly doesn’t hurt if the system is simple to use, gives clear feedback on whether it is engaged or not, doesn’t wobble on the jacket, has enough capacity for the intended use and maybe even allows you to personalize the pouches.
