Mares XR buoyancy compensation vests
Recall complete in New Zealand

The Hazard!

The deflation button can come unscrewed which may result in loss of the seal at the mouthpiece and lead to loss of buoyancy that could lead to an accident and a potential drowning hazard.

What to do...

Mares Oceania has completed the recall in New Zealand (contacted all owners and repaired all affected vests).
