    I dove with the SS quicklinks from Amazon. I dove the 5mm ones (1.93") yesterday. I didn't really feel them at all during the dive, but I did a little after. Just slightly pushing into my back. I'll try the 6mm (2.28") my next time out and see if they give a little bit more room.

    As close as it was, I think the 6mm will work great and give just enough room. And no rust, they still look brand new (only 2 dives, but I think they'll be fine).

    Yes but they fit far more stuff at a manageable gauge with plenty enough robustness
    for some butt plate pulling and arse sack hanging but not tractor pulling for very long
