    I breathe from it prior to every dive, I breathe from it when practicing air sharing drills. Outside of that, I use it as my backup reg, If I am on back gas, I am breathing from my primary, that is what it is for.
    How you use your regs is up to you, but to say it needs to be on a break away to circumvent an emergency caused by incorrect usage of gear seems pretty silly to me.

    I'm wondering something with some of the replies here.

    The only reg I have a snap on is my long hose. The only time it's clipped off is when I'm gearing up, gearing down or climbing the ladder back on the boat. Why do I need a quick disconnect on it? When I'm in the water it's either in my my mouth or my buddies.

    Or am I doing something wrong?

    Nope, apparently I'm the weird one. Not the first time that has happened!
