The Mares XR Stainless Steel Backplate is a tough skeleton backplate made to be strong and full of features for a solid foundation for your harness and wing system. 3mm 316 Stainless Steel weighs about 1.9kg to act as trim weight so you can take some lead off your belt.
3 mounting holes down the spine and a lower slot give your flexibility on where to mount your twin cylinders. Dual slots either side of the spine can thread two cam bands through to mount a single cylinder directly to the backplate.
Ergonomically angled slots for 2" harness are designed for the optimal positioning of the harness webbing. The lower corners of the plate are pre-bent to stop them digging in on longer dives.
Mounting holes all around the outside of the plate for mounting accessories and a sidemount butt plate.
