    The only people I know of that dive a BC with twins, do it due to some sort of shoulder injury which restricts them getting into a harness on a BP/W.

    I loved my ranger and did my first 300 or so...

    Hi Case,

    I live in Melbourne, though have not managed to get out to the Canberra yet. Bad weather has gotten in the way. From all accounts its massive and excellent when the conditions are good.

    I've also used both the Mach V and the Eclipse 30. Both were good, but I've stuck with the Mach V and sold of the H.

    It's certainly not 100% gear based. It's a philosophy on diving. It does however lend itself to a certain gear configuration, and for good reason. Let's also remember that GUE and DIR are no longer...

    In all honesty, I believe a standard weight belt and some trim weight pockets are your best option. It's simple and easy and doesn't mean you have to haul around a rig that weighs a ton. With a 7mm...

    The connection on the MiFlex hoses is exactly the same as any other HP connection. I can't see any reason you couldn't use it on a console also. In fact I believe that they have a higher burst...

    I had a Brigade for a year, did 500 odd dives in it, then switched to BP/W at the start of this year. Haven't look back. Trim is much nicer, weight distribution is much nicer. Don't miss the pockets...

    Got a DR AL plate here, I think the edge issues may have been from 1 run a while back, or purely concocted - take your pick. Either way it would seem the current ones are A-OK.

    As a fellow instructor I would highly recommend just getting a cheap BC for pool sessions, and wearing your BP/W with standard HOG harness for the O/W components when you don't have to demo stuff.

    What length MiFlex HP hose did you get? I got a 24" one but damn it is hard to check it! Still need a few more dives with the new rig to get it sorted I think!

    Well, even though the decision has been made, in a non ideal world I think the 30lb is more versatile than the 18lb for obvious reason. If you can afford 2 single tank wings then great, otherwise I...

    $20 for an STA? Which one and where? Cheapest at ST is 26 for the soft STA or $27.95 for the mini ones. Then we go up to about $60. I want one with some weight to it!

    The Brigade is a great BCD, I have done 600plus dives in mine. The only thing I would say, is the Brigade is basically the Escape with bigger pockets. Why pay that much money just for that?
