    I've found 5mm bungee acceptable, but it really depends on the manufacturer, as the elasticity/resistance can vary regardless of bungee diameter. I've had 6mm bungee that was way too floppy.... and thinner bungee that was very strong.

    I get my bungee from Pacifica Dive, the Scubapro dealer in Makati/Manila. They have a wide selection of bungees in different thickness and color.

    I put together an Amazon portal with listings for some common tech/sidemount items that I've found available.... that includes some bungee suppliers... Sidemount Technical Wreck Diving Store

    Here are the bungee/cord options: Bungee, Line and Cord

    B&Q for me! Though I did get a nice chunk with the Diamond harness I bought a few years ago... :)
