Stainless steel backplates are most popular with saltwater divers and divers using aluminum tanks and/or drysuits. The 316 marine grade stainless steel XR backplate with a flat matte finish is available in a 3 mm version that weighs† approximately { 4.2 lb | 1.9 kg } and a 6 mm version that weighs† approximately { 8.5 lb | 3.85 kg } for divers who wish to transfer even more weight off their waist.

The Mares XR backplate features a modern laser cut design:

  • { 11 in | 28 cm } centers mounting with three holes for height adjustability and a lozenge slot that allows easy assembly on doubles bolts without alignment concerns.
  • { 2 in | 5.1 cm } slots to accept directly threaded tank cam bands for single cylinder diving, improving stability by making the use of a single tank adapter optional.
  • { 2 in | 5.1 cm } horizontal and angled strap slots to allow your choice of straight or cross-over shoulder strap mounting.
  • { 2 in | 5.1 cm } slot at the base to accommodate a crotch strap.
  • { 3/8 in | 1 cm } perimeter holes (four on each side and four at the base) for mounting accessories such as light canisters, butt plates, inflation bottles, lumbar pads, and surface marking buoys.
  • Rounded corners and all edges are de-burred to reduce wear on the harness and wing. The lower corners have a slight bend for comfort.
  • { 15.75 in | 40.0 cm } high and { 10.63 in | 27.0 cm } wide at the base, { 8.75 in | 22.2 cm } wide at the top before the corner curve, with "V" depth of { 1.6 in | 4.1 cm }.
  • 316 marine grade passivated stainless steel with a flat matte finish and stamped Mares XR logo.
  • 3 mm version weighs† approximately { 4.2 lb | 1.9 kg }.
  • 6 mm version weighs† approximately { 8.5 lb | 3.85 kg }. The extra thickness may cause compatibility issues with some bolt heights and assembly screws.
  • 3mm version is compatible with the Mares XR Padding Kit.

† Although Mares documentation officially lists the weights as 3mm = 2.5 kg and 6mm = 4 kg, our own measurements listed above disagree significantly when taken using multiple electronic scales and averaging across multiple items without including packaging.
