Details for Mares Icon MRS Plus

Mares Icon MRS Plus:

Innovation in the travel BC

• Great buoyancy lift

• Quick-Pak system

• Plush lined padded neoprene collar

In today’s world of travel we are strictly confined by airline weight restrictions and the need to limit luggage dimensions. Thanks to the Quick-Pak system, Icon is the ideal BC for traveling, satisfying all divers’ needs: high lift, comfort padded backpack, metal D-rings, MRS, dual position adjustable chest strap and one roll up zippered pocket.

Innovation in compacting and transporting the BC. With a few quick moves, you can compact your BC to its minimum dimensions (45x30x30cm). Once closed, the BC will be better protected and can be easily stored in a closet or transported in a small travel backpack.

MRS Plus represents the evolution of MRS (Mechanical Release System), the first ballast with a mechanical release system introduced on the market: reliable, simple and easy to use. It introduces a newly designed closure system, with which a simple click is all you need to ensure easy and secure storage of the weight pockets inside the special housings in the BC. Shaped pockets to form to your waist. A single outward pull is all you need to release your weights. The oversized release handle is easy to grasp and use, even when wearing thick neoprene gloves. The large opening of the zippered weight pocket makes it easier to insert the ballast. The maximum load per pocket is 6kg/13lbs for most sizes. The Velcro interior is ideal for dividing the pocket into multiple sections if you dont use its full capacity.

Compartment for use of fixed weights

Compartment for using fixed weights. Rear non-releasable weights holding 2.5k/5.5lbs per pocket, secured with quick release buckles.

Those who dive frequently and in difficult conditions need products featuring superior quality and consistent performance, time and time again. Mares has always focused on new technologies and innovative products that lead to concrete benefits: superior reliability and performance will be appreciated by the most experienced demanding divers.

Designing and engineering products for cold water diving requires maximum attention to performance, safety and technical details. Mares creates equipment specific for cold water and ice diving. Rigorous tests ensure top notch performance keeping you comfortable, warm and secure. Even the US Navy has conceded Mares to be the best equipment for extreme conditions.

Comfort is always one of the primary design elements in Mares equipment. Mares through superior technology continues to research, innovate and upgrade your level of comfort before and during your dive. Equipment marked with Max Comfort bring this quality of comfort to the most up-to-date premier pinnacle.

In today’s world of travel we are strictly confined by airline weight restrictions, therefore the design of your equipment needs to encompass elements to be travel friendly. Lightweight, streamlined, easy to pack and hassle free are just some of the elements included in the gear marked for travel.

This design characteristic means high lift capacity across all sizes compared to traditional bladder constructions. Demanding and technical divers are supported even when loaded by the weight of heavy tanks and many accessories. High lift is also ideal for recreational divers who don’t like compromises and limitations for their activity

The inflation bladder is 100% in the rear of the BC enabling high lift capacity, reducing bulk in the front area for an unrestricted feel and maximum freedom of movement. Mares backmounted BCs are fully equipped and designed to support a comfortable position on the surface.

The Back Protection System Plus is a patented dual position lumbar backpack. Heavily padded in either position, you can double the padding for increased lumbar support or extend the length of the padding depending on body shape for ultimate dive and pre-dive comfort.

This compartment is for using fixed weights to provide balance. Rear non-releasable weights holding 2,5kg/5.5lbs per pocket, secured with quick release buckles.

Optimal ballast with a mechanical release system. A simple click ensures easy and secure storage of the weight pockets. A single outward pull on the oversized handle releases your weights. Maximum load 6kg/13lbs. Velcro interior for dividing the pocket into multiple sections (M, L, XL).

Chest strap adjusts both vertically and horizontally depending on torso length, body shape or drysuit valve positioning. Extends more versatility in the adjustment of the BC in order to fit your confi guration best, therefore granting the most comfort.

Grommets for easily attaching the Mares Force knife collection. The grommets are located in the most convenient area of the BC, so your knife is always accessible when you need it.

Innovation in compacting and transporting the BC. With a few quick moves, you can compact your BC to its minimum dimensions (45x30x30cm). Once closed, the BC will be better protected and can be easily stored in a closet or transported in a small travel backpack.

Just finished a week in Grand Cayman diving with my new Icon bcd-jacket. All I can say is awesome! I was trained on a back mount bcd-jacket in the 70 s (At-Pac) I absolutely love the new integrated weight system, quick air dump system and travel fold up features! Awesome unit.. Love mine... Great Job Mares!!!

Have just bought this bcd-jacket (from, great service). Had first dive at the Poor Knights NZ and it was fantastic. Integrated weight system made for great comfort, and plenty of buoyancy. I would recommend this bcd-jacket to anyone.
