    I wouldn't go so far to say it was 'bad'. Maybe 'sub-optimal' at worst :wink:

    It just opens up a few potential issues, that could lead from human error into an incident.

    For instance, if you donned your hoses in the wrong order, the bungeed secondary (routed from the left) could trap your long hose at the left side of your neck.

    Because it isn't 'standardized' (the 'standard' being most of the tech community), it could interfere slightly with a rescue, just because stuff isn't where it might be 'expected' to be...

    I think someone already mentioned the issue of bubbles and failure identification by routing hoses behind the neck..

    Small issues.... but from a tech perspective.... small issues can have much bigger consequences.
