Thank you @Tracy and @GiraffeMarineSalvage
I have a sidewinder in my stable right now... which is great except for totally sucking at trying to put suit gas on it, boat diving in general, and having the flood tolerance of a housemouse. So was curious about the pluses and minuses of the whole "flipping forward" which is unique to chest mount.
I tend to dive wrecks more than tight caves. Wreck doors are typically narrow and tall. The chop with backmount 50s for BO makes a great tool for it. Flipping it forward isn't something I would want to do constantly during a dive, but it isn't the end of the world when you need to.
