  •    Reduced lower back strain
  •    Provides redundant gas supply
  •    Ability to monitor all equipment because it‘s in front of you
  •    Increased gas supply for longer dives
Because you are able to move the cylinder from your back to your side, it instantly takes the pressure off of your back and gives you more flexibility to move and enjoy your dive. Plus, you don’t have to walk to the dive site with the cylinders on your back. You can enter the water clip them on and go.
