If you owned your own gear but had to leave one piece of gear behind and rent it at your destination, what piece of gear would that be ? And why ?

[Choose #5] ...a towel! Everything else listed I’d only rent in the event one of my pieces of gear broke and couldn’t be repaired on the trip!

[Choose #5] Tanks... Cost to much to take them on a plane plus the tanks can not have any PSI in them

[Choose #4] My vote was to rent a suit, my BCD, Regs, Mask and Fins are more important to me than my suit

[Choose #5] I would leave my FABER 108LP tanks behind as I could never leave my transpac, sherwood SR1, or wetsuit...we all know what divers do in their wetsuit at depth.

[Choose #4] I selected wet suit, because it’s not as critical to life support as say the BC or regulators

[Choose #3] I would leave behind my fins because they would take the most space in luggage and also cheap to rent..

[Choose #5] Cylinder. Bulky, heavy, and can’t air transport full. For a local dive it would be weights because it is difficult sometimes to find steel tank rentals.
