    System is set up for total redundancy, self rescue and reduced overall weight.

    Zeagle 911 Rescue BCD with backup second stage and attached A/B air valve at waist and custom strap lengths; Aqualung Fusion Bullet drysuit; Waterproof W4 wetsuit; Scuba Pro first stage Regulators with custom hose lengths; Ocean Reef Predator FFM; 2 sets of customized tanks configured as follows: (1) Twin 30’s with 13 pony (73 CF total) and (2) Twin 40’s with 19 pony (99 CF total). Setup is as follows...primary tanks feed FFM and drysuit through A/B air valve in “A mode” with Pony bottle feeding BCD, pony bottle feeds FFM and BCD through A/B air valve in “B mode” while primary continues feeding drysuit. All hoses have quick disconnects with locks for essential air, first stage regulators use DIN connection to protect from blown o-rings. Additional items..2 knives, 2 lights, compass, gauges (duel pressure and depth), surface buoy, whistle, emergency strobe light.
    Retired/disabled Navy Veteran. Originally certified in 1982. Re-certified in 2017 after involuntary absence from diving due to injury, drysuit certification. As a disabled diver, my scuba equipment has been fully customized to reduce the overall weight on my back while redistributing it off my spine, but closer in line with my own center of gravity. This has completely eliminated the feeling of having a tank hanging out and off my back, as they now sit directly on each side of my back with a small pony nestled in between. The tanks now feel as though they’re one with my BCD, and everything stays put exactly as I set it whether on land or in the water. I have an air valve so I can switch to my backup air supply without having to remove my Ocean Reef full face mask with it’s built in second stage. I don’t have communications capabilities, but will gladly purchase it if I get a buddy with the same. My diving is restricted to no more than 40-45 feet due to implanted medical device. But that’s still deep enough to fully enjoy most reefs. Unfortunately, I have to pass on deep dives which obviously includes most wrecks. It’s a medical thing that I’m stuck with for the time being. My equipment is set up for both solo diving and self rescue. As such, there’s a backup system built in for everything.
