The Mares Guardian Ergotrim BCD
The Mares BCD Guardian Ergotrim is an innovative buoyancy compensator for divers, a diving jacket packed with the latest technology, such as the patented Ergotrim inflator or the practical SLS weight system that you already know from established Mares BCDs such as Mares Dragon SLS or the Lady BCD for women Mares Kaila SLS.
The Ergotrim Inflator - the pinnacle of a success story
The Airtrim Inflator, launched by Mares in 2001, caused a sensation in the diving world and is now a legend. The Airtrim inflator system relieved the diver from having to decide which dump valve to use in which diving position in order to dump air from the jacket. Instead, the new system opened simultaneously one valve at the top and one at the bottom of the BC to allow air to escape no matter what position the diver is in. Apart from that, the annoying hose on the diver's left shoulder was suddenly gone and replaced by a compact and practical control unit on the left pocket - elegant solution!
Airtrim inflator system and ergo inflator in one
The only ones who didn't get quite "warm" with the new Mares Airtrim inflator system were diving instructors, as they needed a classic Ergo inflator as part of the dive course. And the new Mares Ergotrim Inflator now solves exactly this problem, as it is a symbiosis of Ergo Inflator and Airtrim Inflator. The Ergotrim inflator has a control unit that offers both the functions of the Ergo inflator and those of the Airtrim inflator, meaning a button for simultaneous opening the two valves and a lever for classic deflation. The inflator hose can be routed through a special cuff under the arm to the left jacket pocket, where the control unit is then fixed, as with Airtrim jackets, or it can be placed over the left shoulder in the classic way.
In an emergency, the BCD can of course also be inflated by mouth by simply pulling the inflator out of the holder and inflating it orally.
A BCD for everyone from student divers to diving instructors
The Ergotrim inflator is therefore an ingenious solution to offer every diver exactly the inflator he needs or wants and the Mares BCD equipped with this inflator are therefore suitable for every training and experience level.
Patented SLS weight system
The Mares SLS weight pouches of the Mares Jackets Mares Guardian Ergotrim, are new Slide and Lock System weight pockets, with improved guidance when inserting the weights into the BCD, and with an audible and visual confirmation of the correct position and securing of the lead pockets in the Mares Jacket - You will hear a "click" and see the green confirmation symbol that guarantees that the Mares weight pouch is securely engaged.
High buoyancy and good fit even when inflated
Just as innovative as the Mares SLS weight pockets is the new positioning of the buoyancy ekements in the Mares BCD Mares Guardian Ergotrim. These are separated from the shoulders of the BC, so that you still have a comfortable fit and good freedom of movement even when the BCD is inflated.
Like the Mares Dragon Jacket, the Mares Guardian Ergotrim Jacket is also suitable for diving with extensive equipment or at greater depths, as it has above-average buoyancy thanks to the Fusion buoyancy system with the well-known Dragon wings.
The monoplate backplate of the Mares Ergotrim Guardian buoyancy compensator can be used for mono tanks or double tanks.
The perfect cut of the Mares Guardian Ergotrim BCD also ensures that the Mares BSD is worn comfortably when diving. The Mares Guardian Ergotrim diving jacket is equipped with swivelling 50 mm buckles and an adjustable cummerbund so that the jacket adapts optimally to your figure, no matter which suit you wear.
Lots of storage space for your diving accessories
The many, stable D-rings and the large cargo pockets with stretchable insert offer you many options for practically attaching your diving instruments and tools to the Mares Guardian Ergotrim dive jacket.
