    Hi, all!
    I have a plastic backplate that I would be willing to trade for an aluminum or steel plate. It weighs next to nothing which is good for travel, but I would prefer to have something that is more negative to reduce (in my case probably eliminate altogether) my weight belt. I have never been up against weight limits for luggage anyway.

    I am happy to keep this plate, so feel free to speak up if you think this whole swapping effort isn't worth it or if you think I am better off with a plastic plate since I am primarily a travel diver.

    Also, the harness is not included unless a harness is included with your plate.

    All thoughts, comments, questions and complaints are welcome! : )

    I'm not really sure, to be honest. A couple pounds is all. I don't really have a way to weigh it very accurately.

    A couple pounds is the same weight as an AL plate...

    I mean about 2 pounds where aluminum would be 4 or so.

    A single tank adapter will also be included with the trade, provided I wouldn't need one with your plate.
