XR Specialties – Recreational Sidemount Diver
With sidemount diving, the cylinders move from your back to your side. Transportation of cylinders topside is then much easier, which may be donned before or after entering the water, eliminating problems of carrying heavy loads in or out. Redundant gas supply increases bottom time and adds an extra level of safety to the dive, essentially doubling your dive time. Sidemount diving provides added stability with the cylinders on the side of the body, and it is an alternative way to streamline in the water, easier to “trim out,” and the diver has the ability to monitor all their equipment because it’s right in front of you. Additionally, sidemount is a great configuration for traveling divers, as the gear is often capable of fitting into a small backpack!
