Looking for a little pocket advice...

    I'm all set to add a Halcyon pocket to my 5mm hyper-stretch wetsuit and can't decide which side to put it on. I'm diving a Halcyon BP/W with a single HP100 and occasionally a 19 Pony slung like a stage bottle. Given the pony, SPG, and Inflator/Air2 my left side is getting a bit busy. I seem to remember a recommendation about a big pocket on the left and a smaller one on the right...
    So, any insights, suggestions, or don't do xxx?

    P.S. Planned contents: Slate, spare mask, and finger spool for use with Liftbag/Marker.

    Full sized pockets both sides. I have no problem accessing the left pocket with 2 Al80 stages on the left. Its bulky but not in a way thats relevant to pocket access.

    I appreciate people asking questions but somehow I expect DIR-related questions in this section.

    Sorry if I mis-posted this. DIR folk seem to be ones adding pockets so I thought I'd ask the experts...

    Two pockets, but if I were to do one, I'd put it on my left side (if you are ever going to scooter, that is).

    One thing about gluing it to a wetsuit: use a cutting board or a thick piece of cardboard to stretch your suit in a comparable amount to how much it is stretch when worn. Do this by putting the suit on, marking where the pockets go, then taking it off and getting it stretched so the pocket fits the marks.
