Product Details

The Mares SLS Slide and Lock System large is the latest generation ballast system from Mares. The system uses a mechanical interference based system that during insertion pushes the holding prongs into position and prevents them from retracting. During release, it pulls the prongs inwards via a system of sliding surfaces. This ensures that the male and female buckles can be removed.

Ease of use is ensured by a large handle and a tunnel on the jacket which controls the insertion of the ballast pocket so that the male buckle is aligned with the female. A finger is then used to push the slider in, which is accompanied by a loud “click” but also by the appearance of a green closed padlock in a special window that replaces a red open padlock.
The large pocket has a capacity of 6kg and a heavy duty zip.

The main features of the SLS Slide and Lock System are:

  • Robust zipped pocket
  • Easy to slide into the pocket
  • Visual aid to check that the system is correctly attached
  • Avoids unintended release of weight pockets
  • Easy to use with thick gloves
