    medium or large DGX. not convinced the xdeeps are worth the money.

    +1 for XDeep snaps. Probably not a big deal without gloves, but with heavy liners and gloves, they are very much worth it. Just my 2-cents from Seattle.

    A bit pricey but you are unlikely to loose these snaps in your sidemount application.

    Xdeep as well. I also tried the ones from DGX, but in cold water the XDeep are just amazing.

    the xdeep bolt snaps are wonderful when trying to move the tank is what is surely very awkward to do compared to backmount

    I like the x-deep snaps, looks like they'd have advantages...

    But there's no where to stick my finger...
