Mares Kaila SLS
Mares introduced the Kaila SLS BCD with an updated look and functional new features. The Kaila SLS is built for female divers who want style and comfort. Kaila (means ‘style’ in Hawaiian) and this new white and black BCD doesn’t disappoint.
A new feature on the Kaila is the stretchy fabric used for the pockets. Stretchy pockets let you keep an extra mask, SMB, or other accessories even when the weight pouches are full.
This year at DEMA, Mares introduced the SLS (Slide & Lock System) weight pockets which they have included in the Kaila BCD. The SLS weights slide easily into the jacket and have a yellow lock indicator when they are secured in the BCD.
The Kaila SLS is made from durable fabric with a plush internal lining and neoprene neck collar. Kaila comes with a monoplate back which can fit a single of double tank. Kaila has swivel buckles which attach to the shoulder straps, and this year Mares has added a whistle to the chest strap buckle.
Kaila is available in five sizes, XXS-L and will be shipping by the end of 2016. Kaila will retail for $630. [Mares]
