Kaila, one of Mares' flagship model BCDs, becomes even better with the Kaila SLS! A dedicated She Dives BCD solution with a range of features. All the main characteristics of the Kaila BCD have been developed for even greater comfort and stability combined with excellent fit and performance. Mares' new Jacket Style Kaila Bladder design is tightly tailored to reduce drag, placing much of the air cell around the tank. The BCD air cell is contoured to greatly minimize the feeling of the bladder underneath your arms and gives comfortable surface flotation. Air cell slides on shoulders for increased comfort when inflated. All that ergonomics and still has a lift of 35.9 lbs. (16.3 kg) size large.
Superbly comfortable and stable yet tough and durable. The BCD air cell is made of durable 420 Cordura denier. The Mares Kaila BCD with SLS has Mares Slide & Lock System (SLS) for weight release. This unique weight integrated BCD provides a visual confirmation of proper weight pouch insertion, so there is no guessing when you do your pre-dive check before entering the water. In addition, the BCD is equipped with smart trim weight positioning for a balanced feel when diving.
The Slide & Lock System (SLS) weight pockets have sturdy zipper closures and are easy to slide into the BCD even when wearing thick gloves. The SLS is the safest system available and come in weight capacities of 9 lbs. and 13 lbs. (4 kg and 6 kg) weight capacities. SLS weight pockets will work with block or soft pouch weights.
Smart D-ring position with large AISI 304 stainless steel rings, 2 bent: 1 upper and 2 lower that are positioned intelligently within your downward vision also functioning as leverage while inserting the weight pockets. Comfort is paramount with the Kaila elastic cummerbund secures the BCD in place and adjusts for wetsuit compression at depth. BCD comes standard with 3 Pull-Dump/Overpressure Relief Valves, one incorporated into the top of the Ergo Inflator; one located on the right shoulder and a third is located on the rear lower right. Activation of the valves are made easy with both the upper and lower right valves coming with pull cords and the valve incorporated into the Ergo Inflator is activated by an internal cable attached to the inflator mechanism. Inflator includes a 3/8" threaded low pressure quick disconnect hose.
With torso adjustable 2" (50 mm) swivel shoulder straps, adjustable chest and waist straps, all equipped with squeeze-style" side release buckles for easy donning and doffing. Two angled high capacity cargo zippered pockets with stretch panels, position of the corrugated hose retaining epaulette can be adjusted, shaped shoulder straps adapt better to alleviate pressure on the shoulders, safety whistle and personalize label on weight pockets all makes this one great BCD.
