I’d like some opinions on what tanks you prefer for back mount diving. Please feel free to provide comments on why you selected the answer you did.

Also, look for a similar survey for side mounting.

[Choose #4] Dble’s really balance you out and also a redundant air source replaces need for a pony. OMS 2400psi LP steel 85’s. Filled to 3000 psi/103 cu.frt.. Bouancy is about the same empty or full.

[Choose #1] The answer depends on the dive. Offshore I use an al80 + a pony & a Deco if it’s deep. Shore dives I use a st72

[Choose #1] I have 5 aluminum 80 tanks and one steel 72. I let one of my sons use the 72 becuase he sips air.
