Hi, Does the Mares Hub come with botheration 1st & 2nd stage? Regards Jacob


Mares avantgarde hub

я думаю это самый лучший компенсатор! Спасибо!


Huba huba !

The HUB is undeniably the most presitigous gear a diver can don!! I have had it for a month now and logged over 35 dives with it in Thailand and the Red Sea. It is very relialable with top end components in every aspect. Plus, I automatically become the talk of the RIB when suite up! A truly liberating and flashy system that shows how serious and aware I am about my hobby. Thanks Scubastore for all your help, patience, excellent service and pricing...I couldn t have enjoyed the HUB without you!!!


Avantgarde 2003

Made 8 dives on Cyprus whith it and I love it. Pros (+): M.R.S = no more hurting back (12kg). Wing = right position under water. Airlock = overkill, but easy to strap bottle. Airtrim = works over my expectation, and is always on the same place. backplate = comfort. Will soon try it in coldwater with drysuit. Where attach drusuite hose? Cons(-): attaching drysuite hose to regulator 2nd stage = can not close pocket. Pockets are smal (right is a joke). Why not V32 as 1st stage, when proton ice as 2nd? It´s MR16, not declared. Changing to DIN (300bar) = serial # of 1st stage gone.



I am truly enjoying my dives with the HUB. I cannot imagine diving with a conventional bcd-jacket and Regulator anymore! However, Thank You.


Avantgarde 2003

1st stage is unfortunately modified MR16. It can´t be repleaced whith V32 easely, if at all. As you can see LP-connector is larger then in another 1st stage. One hole most supply/deliver more air, because bouth 2nd stages are supplyed from that port. Its huge misstake to not deliver top of line produkt with top of line 1st stage. I think Mares is aware of that, and thats the reason why they don´t talk abouth it in data or even showing it on photo. M.R.S is the same as in all Mares jackets with MRS.



Thanks Dive Inn for the quick delivery on my gear which only took 4 working days to get to N.Z. This was my first dive ever in the Hub and I have to say it was just magnificant, so easy to use and so comfortable. The Prtotn Ice second stage was perfect, breathing though this made diving a breeze. I higly recommend this dive package, and company to any one. Thanks Juan. New Zealand
