Mares Rock Pro Jacket
The Rock Pro Jacket is a lightweight Mares BCD, an uncomplicated and reliable dive jacket for divers looking for a plain and lightweight buoyancy compensator without frills, but with a high level of comfort, ease of use and decent buoyancy. The Rock Pro scores with robust material and a classic ADV cut, like the popular Mares Dragon SLS or the lightweight Prestige SLS.
Classic ADV cut for good buoyancy and plenty of freedom of movement
Unlike a wing jacket, which has a bladder only on the back, like the Mares Magellan or the Bolt SLS, this Mares buoyancy compensator has a large, all-round bladder that wraps around your upper body. The ADV bladder ensures that the Rock Pro Jacket gives you plenty of freedom of movement when diving in any position, whether you are floating upright on the surface, neutrally balanced in a perfect horizontal position underwater, or swimming backwards to keep an eye on the group. The buoyancy is always where you need it, stabilising the tank and your upper body.
Robust materials for excellent durability
Like the many proven Mares BCDs that have won over countless divers to date, the Rock Pro is made of very robust, abrasion and tear resistant 420 Denier Cordura Nylon that promises excellent durability, same like the professional Mares Guardian Ergotrim. The stressed areas on the shoulders and pockets are additionally reinforced with Tyrpol. Thus, this Mares jacket promises a long service life, even with frequent use, for example in diving centres and diving schools, and also in use and demanding conditions.
High comfort and streamlined fit
To minimise water resistance when diving, the side pockets of the Rock Pro BCD have been anatomically shaped and cut so that you can glide through the water as streamlined as possible.
In addition, the manufacturer has taken care in all details to design the jacket so that you always have a comfortable and secure fit when diving. The back plate of the Rock Pro is thickly padded so that the scuba tank does not press on your spine, and the cut and shoulder straps are anatomically shaped to allow you to adjust the BCD optimally to your upper body without being constricted.
Enough storage space even for extensive equipment
Even if you are diving with a lot of additional equipment, such as camera, dive torch, writing board, spare mask, buoy and other accessories, you will certainly find enough fastening possibilities and enough storage space on the Rock Pro diving jacket. There are 6 robust stainless steel D-rings placed at various points on the BCD, two large side pockets with zips and practical octopus pockets on both sides of the dive jacket in which you can store the hose of the alternate air supply.
Innovative weight pocket system with secure fastening
The weight pockets of this Mares diving jacket offer enough space for a good amount of soft lead, depending on the size approx. 4 to 6 kg. of lead per side. The weight pouches are equipped with break-proof, handy handles, are very easy to attach to both sides of the jacket and are secured with an innovative fastening system and can also be easily removed in an emergency.
Easy to use even for novice divers
The Rock Pro BCD is equipped with a classic Ergo inflator that is child's play to operate, even for student divers and occasional divers. Also no surprise is the placement of the quick release valves, which you will find as standard on the top of the right shoulder and on the bottom right, and which can be easily operated with the classic pull strap with handle.
Everything else about this Mares jacket is also uncomplicated, classic and straightforward, whether it's the buckles that are easy to operate even when wearing gloves, the intuitive weight pocket attachment or the easily adjustable tank strap that can be adjusted in length with Velcro and secured with a standard buckle.
So whether you are looking for a reliable jacket with a convincing price-performance ratio, a classic and robust buoyancy jacket with uncomplicated operation or simply a lightweight travel jacket with a comfortable fit, you can't go far wrong with the mares Rock Pro.
