Hey gebbert2038, You’re right there is no comparison, one system is simpler than the other and I personally feel more comfortable in side mount compared to back mount. One of the things I don’t like is when instructors and dive shops push side mounting to beginners. I’d like to see more advanced students in back mount configuration then try side mounting, this way they can make their choice what’s good for them.
