    Andy that looks great! Pretty much exactly what I had in mind. Interesting how you have the trim pillow rigged, it hadn't occured to me to set it up that way. I have it flipped the other way with a crotch strap and two sternum straps made of bungees and snaps (literally identical to the Stealth wing). Thanks for the pic!

    After seeing some of Steve's most recent YouTube videos I am so glad I went with the xDeep Stealth 2.0, they have been diving steels and the Razor wing looks terribly unstreamlined. The Stealth always looks slick.

    Thanks everyone for your input, I'm afraid I would have made an $800 mistake without it!

    It does make use of sternum straps (like the Stealth), that helps keep the top corners flush around the torso.

    I did notice that. Before I bought the Stealth 2.0 I would have liked the idea of having a rigid connection along the waist belt but since I've been diving it I've kind of grown fond of having the option to adjust the placement of the wing on-the-fly. The mounting system really does work well, better than I had imagined, so whatever doubts I had about the securedness of bungee only attachments are now gone.
