The Mares Magellan BCD
The Mares Travel BCD Mares Magellan is a brand-new Mares travel BCD, an ultralight, sturdy and foldable Mares BCD for the holidays.
The Mares Magellan travel BCD convinces as Mares BCD with innovative and lightweight materials and modern technologies such as the Mares Backmount system, patented shoulder straps and extremely small, travel-friendly pack size.
These compact dimensions of the Mares Magellan BCD are achieved thanks to the foldable backpack, which is folded up to 30% shorter than a normal BCD.
Although a traditional back plate is missing from the Mares Magellan travel BCD to keep the jacket lightweight and small, your back is still well protected by very good padding. The ergonomically shaped, concave shoulder straps of the Mares Magellan dive jacket also ensure high levels of comfort, providing perfect and comfortable fit in the chest and shoulder area.
In order to save weight, Mares uses for the Magellan BCD a very light Cordura 420 material, which is thin and very tear-resistant, and deliberately avoids heavy metal components, replacing them with shatterproof plastic and lightweight aluminium elements. The backpack of the Mares Magellan also weighs 40% less thanks to the sophisticated honeycomb structure. So the Mares Magellan diving jacket, in size M only weights incredible 2.1 kg, thus being a perfect Marestravel BCD!
Despite its light weight, the Mares Magellan BCD does not miss any technical gimmicks, such as a high-quality integrated weight system with quick-release function.
You also have enough place for your diving accessories in the Mares Magellan BCD, due to practical roll-out cargo pocket on the right side of the jacket.
As many other Mares BCDs, the Mares Magellan Travel BCD is also a backmounted BCD, where you can separate the air cell from the harness, for maximum freedom of movement.
The inflator of the BCD Mares Magellan is a classic ergo inflator, ergonomically shaped and easy to use, just like the classic jackets that you know from your dive training.
Its perfect fit, robust materials, light weight and low pack size make the Mares Magellan BCD the perfect Mares Travel BCD for any diver who likes to travel light on their dive vacation.
The Mares travel BCD Magellan can be found in various sizes in our online dive shop, as well as the matching Mares accessories for jackets. Of course, we also offer other Mares BCDs, Scubapro BCDs or Hollis Jackets and other high-quality BCDs in our online Divestore.
