    Is it possible to get the "H" webbing without the "H"?

    Ok I would like to know if anyone has a basic spec for Marine grade 2" webbing suitable for belts and harnesses? I was going to get a bulk roll and mule it to Mexico since I plan to rig a harness this weekend and my LDS is getting low on webbing. I was surprised at how many different materials and grades of this generic product are available. In the end I ordered enough webbing for the current project from DGX but going forward I would like to acquire a bulk roll.

    DGX's webbing come very very close. I bought some a year or so ago. Hope they didn't change their supplier.

    double AL80 are extreme rare in CA due to their buoyancy characteristic and our exposure suit usage. I believe there is good reason for it. I see more AL plates than SS plates used with double.

    I have a set of HP100 (Worthington) and a set of LP85. I slightly prefer LP85 due to their longer length. I can use a longer piece of tail weight to help static trim. HP120s are a bit too long for me. I am 5'6" only. I have both AL and SS plate, I prefer AL myself, which help static trim. SS plate works too, just as well as AL. So just want to give your some idea on person to person variation. If you can, borrow a pair from an instructor and try it out in a pool. And since you already have SS plate, give it a try to see how you like it. I kind of think if your undergarment is thick enough (400g thinsulate type), you maybe head heavy with HP100 and SS plate.

    eelnora makes a good point. if being head heavy is an issue, an AL plate would allow you to move 4 pounds to your waist or even to your drysuit pockets.

    I have a Halcyon webbing and a DGX webbing. I can't tell the difference except that the H is printed all over the halcyon one. My wing is Halcyon as well. I don't like all the H's on my webbing; I feel like a bill board for halcyon when I dive.:wink::)

    How about weave the webbing such that the Hs are in the inside of the shoulder harness? This way, the Hs will show in the waist, but a lot less visible.
