The Mares XR Rec Silver Single Backmount Set includes everything you need to enter the world of XR diving. This one size fits all (fully adjustable harness) is perfect for travelling.
This versatile new product was designed to meet the needs of a range of different divers — from the traveller looking for a lightweight solution, to the diver who wants to extend their range of diving to just beyond their recreational limits, and even to the most advanced of technical divers. The result is a product designed for advanced performance that can easily be used by anyone.
One of the most outstanding features of the XR-REC Silver Single Backmount Set is that it fits practically everyone. The harness was made to be a one size fits all, and thanks to many simple adjustments it can be adapted to different bodies while maintaining a high level of comfort during the dive. The rear buoyancy wing offers ample freedom of movement, ideal for both technical and recreational dives.
The new Mares X-Rec Harness features Back and Shoulders Padding to provide increased comfort. This Standard Webbing Harness is enhanced with a left shoulder Milspec 2-Point, Quick-Release, with Silver Aluminium Buckle. The waistband has a Stainless Steel 316 Silver Buckle and there are two Removable Side Weight Pockets With D-Rings, Closed With Velcro (One Includes A Lower Extension Pocket). There is a 50 mm (2 inch) Wide Crotch Strap and the numerous 6 mm Silver Aluminium D-Rings provide plenty of attachment point for dive accessories.
The Mares XR Aluminum Backplate is made from 3 mm (0.12 inch) 6061 marine-grade anodised aluminium alloy, this back-plate is strong, durable and provides many options for fixing on accessories — all with the modern XR Psycho Calavera look! The back-plate has 13-laser cut and laser etched webbing slots, with 8 slots specially designed for optimum positioning of the harness webbing. 2 upper and 2 lower slots for nylon cylinder bands so a single cylinder can be strapped directly to the backplate without the requirement of a special adaptor. Having only 2 slots provides enough lateral cylinder stability without weakening the strength of the spine.
The Backplate has 50 mm (2 inch) wide crotch strap slot and 15 holes for attachment of accessories. The 3 holes at the top of the plate offer a range of height adjustments for buoyancy cells and cylinders. In addition, a corresponding lower centre slot allows for lower band bolts that are misaligned. 4 upper and lower perimeter holes along either side and 4 holes along the bottom allow for the mounting of accessories and side-mount butt plate. Bended lower edges, Mares XR logos and laser cut shaped axis, highly technical pre-shape for unparalleled versatility. The backplate has an ultra-rugged unfoldable backbone and the design was pushed to limits through intense testing. The Mares XR Aluminum Backplate provides total modularity: Fits all Mares doughnut wings.
The aluminium construction renders it extremely lightweight and easy to transport, making it perfect for travel. The set also comes fully assembled and ready to dive, so it's ideal for beginning and non-technical divers.
The Mares Donut Bladder Single Tank Wing offers perfect buoyancy and trim, keeping the cylinder in a perfect position and maintaining comfort as well as a smooth left to right gas shift. The back inflator single tank doughnut bladder is built to last with a strong and durable 1200D bulletproof ballistic nylon with a 600D polyester exterior. The inner bladder is radio frequency (RF) welded black polyurethane with a heavy-duty plastic zipper and slider with elongated teeth for easy access to the internal bladder.
Buoyancy control is facilitated with the K style inflators with brass buttons equipped with an 89 cm (35 inch) low profile, round-shaped hose and its left side position does not interfere with 1st stage regulator. In addition, trimming buoyancy when inverted is accomplished via the low-profile dump valve with micro pull cord. The low profile of the inflator, dump valve and pull cord all help prevent snagging when diving in tight spaces and in overhead environments. With the dual bag design (outer shell/inner bladder) the doughnut comes equipped with 6 large drain grommets, 2 on top and four on the bottom to rapidly exhaust and trapped air between the outer and inner bags. These heavy-duty grommet positions allow optimum trim.
