I don't think you have to. I think that @sourdough's solution will work.

By the way, you could always resell your system and buy a second hand BP/w, you will probably make money out of this operation. Halcyon isn't mandatory at all, and I would recommend only the wing (definitely not the backplate and the webbings)
The halcyon webbing is the best webbing on the market...

Q: Would clipping off the SMB on the right buckle violate DIR philosophy? (Time for me to dig into DIR philosophy I guess).
Safety gear such as an SMB should be stored in an exposure suit pocket, not clipped off to a harness buckle or D-ring. This isn't a matter of philosophy, you just don't want gear hanging off your rig where it creates an entanglement hazard and causes extra drag.

I was gonna say the same thing. If the big blue H makes anything out of this world, it is their webbing.

True, but the others work very well too and are cheaper. I don't see any reason to spend money on that piece of equipment.
It's the piece of equipment in direct contract with your body, and well worth the cost.

I never had any problems with my tecline webbings, which were cheaper. I know several people who use good quality webbings that are less expensive than Halcyon (and, probably, less good) and never had an issue. So I stand on my point.

But my experience is limited, so feel free to suggest otherwise :)

yeah but the H's make life so easy to get everything even. It's 30 bucks for H-webbing if that's breaking the bank, diving probably isn't for you :)

Guys, just go for Halcyon, you will not die because of it, I promise. I will not go for Halcyon any time soon, and I will not die because of it, too, I promise :)

Sorry if I hijacking but I'm having a problem with webbing. I started to add a d-ring to my back plate and found I couldn't undo my buckle or strap locks from the strap even with tools. Is the Halcyon webbing easier to work with?
