Warning…SOME WEIGHT VESTS DO NOT HAVE A QUICK RELEASE!

Be sure to get one with a QUICK RELEASE!

The MAKO Spearguns, QUICK RELEASE WEIGHT VEST is equipped with an innovative quick release system that allows you to instantly remove it with one quick movement with just one hand.

Use by itself, or in conjunction with a weight belt. The Weight Vest distributes the weight across a broader section of your body, thus providing a leveling effect while reducing the stress on your lower back.

Excellent for cold water diving where thicker wetsuits are used so more weights are needed.

Also, if you ever have to ditch your MAKO Weight Vest or MAKO Weight Belt, we will replace it for free! I don't want you to think about finances in a critical moment. JUST DITCH IT!

• HIGH PERFORMANCE GEAR
• DIRECT TO YOU FROM DANO AT MAKO
• NO DIVE SHOP MARKUP

Thanks guys for taking time to read this.

Dive safe,
dano

I have attached an important reminder about how to safely wear the MAKO weight vest so that it can be ditched in an instant with just one hand. Some other weighted vest configurations are not similarly configured.

IMPORTANT!
QUICK RELEASE WEIGHT VEST INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1) It is easiest to put the weight vest on in “temporary mode” as shown below:

NOTE: This configuration DOES NOT offer a quick release option and is NOT for diving!

Buckling your straps in this configuration is only to assist in putting the vest on before your dive.



STEP 2) Once the vest is on, disconnect the buckles from the “temporary mode” and then reconnect as shown below to the right “dive mode”.

The “dive mode” configuration is the correct way to dive with a weight vest, enabling a quick release.
