5 Streamlined Ways to Maximize Mares Gear

5 Streamlined Ways to Maximize Mares Gear

There are time saving tricks for almost everything nowadays—including the gear-intensive sport, scuba diving. Learn how to make the most out of your Mares paraphernalia by giving these hacks a go:


1.Mares BCD and bungee cords.

The key to enhanced diving efficiency and security would be streamlining the Mares Bolt BCD. The BCD is designed with a slide and lock weight system for a lightweight feel. But regardless of how much light-handling we do we will still need a range of equipment depending on the dive mission. Bungee cords with hooks on each end could secure the gear to your BCD, arm, and thigh or wherever you’ve attached it instead of the gear just dangling while you dive.


2.Mares wetsuits and plastic bags.

While the Mares Flexa 5.4.3mm wetsuit is formulated with 100% ultra- stretch of high-quality neoprene that gives you that signature Mares snug fit, putting it on could be time consuming. Getting your wrists and ankles through the wetsuit’s cuff could be the conundrum. It is highly suggested to use (any) plastic bags, wear them on both hands and feet when putting on your Mares wetsuit. The low friction of the said synthetic material against the neoprene makes it easier to slide into.


3.Mares wetsuit and BCD zippers and candle wax.

May it be your Mares Flexa wetsuit or Mare Bolt BCD, stubborn zippers are inevitable. Anything with zippers must be lubricated regularly for proper maintenance. Most people would buy commercially available products to remedy the crisis at hand. Candle wax is a much cheaper substitute for all those lubricants.


4.Mares Gloves and woolen gloves.

With 5mm to 6.5mm if thickness, the Mares Flexa Fit Gloves is the perfect choice to keep your hands warm while diving in the cold. If this isn’t enough to keep your fingers from getting frostbites, wear woolen gloves under your wetsuit gloves. The material will insulate your hands even when completely soaked.


5.Mares masks and baby shampoo.

The Mares Essence Liquidskin Mask offers you comfort fit and the best view but it is not exempted from fog. For most divers spitting on their mask is not an option, a bottle of baby shampoo can be used to defog your mask instead. Rub a few drops of the shampoo inside of the damp glass. Toothpaste can also be used but baby shampoo is much more recommended as it will not hurt in case it gets in your eyes.


These time saving tips will make the tedious task of maintaining and using dive gear a breeze. Prolong and preserve your products for more diving adventures.
