    I clip is to the d-ring on the opposite side. I just position the d-ring low enough so the chest strap doesn't interfere with the dry suit inflator.

    Yeah, before getting rid of the long hose, try the tank swap thing in some low, really silty passage. It's not much fun being pinned up on the ceiling, making silt bombs. The long hose is easy to carry bungeed up to the tank, no reason to get rid of it.


    As for sidemount regs, my friends and I have always used Poseidons. Unidirectional, don't need elbows, swivels, or hoses running behind your head.
