    Do you have those pony bottles strapped directly to you while you're in the helicopter? Seems uncomforable to me.

    I have said this before...

    What diving I've done, I see 98 percent of the divers out there without a bailout bottle of any kind. I would rather have 15 - 20 breaths (pony) than 2 or 3 breaths (SA), but I would take 2 or 3 over none at all.
