About the Mares Abyss 22 Navy II Regulator

The new Abyss 22 Navy II is the Mares answer for your challenge in every condition: it passed all tests of EN-250 and US Navy! With careful analysis and evaluation of what happens in cold water, Mares has designed an exclusive product accurately studied to guarantee top performance and reliability under the toughest conditions, including diving under the ice. The new model comes with a special fluoropolymer coating on the second stage which prevents the adhesion of dirt particles and ice crystals. The balanced diaphragm First Stage MR22T also features a protective shield against extreme cold: the CWD kit offers reliable protection against icing up during extreme cold water dives. The rubber hose is the preferred material of choice in this application, due to better heat exchange properties and superior durability when compared to the hoses in our other high end regulators. Abyss 22 Navy II is optimized for cold water diving while looking pretty fancy as well. ABYSS 22 NAVY II …  for extreme emotions!

  • TRI-MATERIAL VALVEPatented technology, created to optimize performance, safety and reliability. This valve is covered with hard PU and the sealing surface is layered with a soft PU for a perfect seal. Tri-material (brass, soft polyurethane and “heavy-duty” polyurethane) reaches a new level of durability.
  • DFC - DYNAMIC FLOW CONTROLThe DFC system minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during inhalation, making it possible to use a simpler and more reliable second stage. No type of manual adjustment is necessary, thanks to the consistency derived from a first stage that guarantees a stable flow of air, even under extreme conditions.
  • EXTREME COLD WATERRegulators made to guarantee unbeatable performance and reliability in extremely cold water, even ice diving: the first stage is equipped with the CWD kit and all key components of the second stage (All Metal version only) are coated with fluoropolymer resin finish.
  • ALL METAL TECHNOLOGYMetal second stages have superior performance to plastic second stages, especially in cold water, thanks to the high thermal conductivity that limits the freezing effect. Additional benefits are the improved durability, the longer working life and less dry mouth from breathing.
  •  VAD - VORTEX ASSISTED DESIGNAll Mares second stages offer the unique patented VAD system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
