The ideal travel companion

• Ultralight
• Easy to pack and carry
• Dedicated to the traveling diver

Made out of 420 Cordura, light yet strong.

Features 2 large zippered pockets, two rear Trim Weight pockets and 5 aluminum D-rings.

Utilizes a soft pack of padded PVC, aimed at maximum weight and volume reduction without jeopardizing performance.

So easy to carry, you will never leave home without it.


- ERGO INFLATOR: The standard inflation and deflation control unit on Mares BCs, the ERGO inflator has been designed according to ergonomic guidelines.
- Intuitive to use and offers maximum grip.
- HIGH LIFT: This design characteristic means high lift capacity across all sizes compared to traditional bladder construction.
- Technical divers for instance require significant lift capacity to compensate for the weight of several tanks, lights and accessories.
- High lift is also ideal for recreational divers who want to dive with no limitations.
- TRIM WEIGHT: Two pockets in the back of the BC meant for non-ditchable weights which provide a better trim.
- Each pocket holds 2.5kg/5.5lbs, and is secured with a quick release buckle plus velcro.
- KNIFE GROMMETS: 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.
- QUICK-PAK SYSTEM: 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.


Travel with ease! Mares reduces your luggage to a minimum.

Following the first ultra-light regulator made from carbon and the featherweight X-Stream fin, all you are missing now is a lightweight BC.

Here is your new travel companion!

Nomen est omen: F-Light is a lightweight with high buoyancy that has a lot to offer!

With a weight of just 2.2 kg in size L, the new travel BC takes the lead in the “lightweight” category, and ensures that your diving luggage doesn’t become excess baggage.

Using light, but extremely durable Cordura 420 for the bag and carrying system as well as an optimized cut, the weight is significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, fit, optimal trim, or safety: A buoyancy of up to 24 liters guarantees safe diving in any depth.

And of course, comfort is an absolute must on vacation: Two large zip pockets, trim lead pockets, a knife retainer, an elastic cummerbund, cranked aluminum D-rings, and a padded frame add value to the F-Light without registering on the scale.

And there is more worth mentioning: In terms of pack size, the F-Light can effortlessly be folded down to 45 x 30 x 30 cm.

How does that work? It’s simple! Using the Quick-Pak system, the frame can be collapsed in seconds.

This way, there will still be a lot of space in your bag for personal items.

In spite of its lower weight and smaller pack size the F-Light has a perfect fit.

Just try it on!

Of course, chances are you’ll never want to take it off again...
