    Might be diving wet for the first time this weekend. All my regs have drysuit hoses. Does anyone just leave them on when they dive wet? (I could take them off and put the port plugs in, but, you know, that takes 2 minutes.)

    You can leave it and tuck the hose out of the way, better to remove it and plug the port.

    If I am.ssitching back and forth between wet and dry I leave it and tuck it. If I will not be diving dry for a while I do remove it.

    But I am lazy also.

    I've been switching back and forth lately, because it's warm enough to do a single shallow dive wet but I like the drysuit for repetitive and/or deeper dives. I just peel back the end of the velcro on the cam bands and tuck my drysuit hose in there when diving wet.

    I like that -- "the experts told me I had to buy it."

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I suspect I will be lazy. (Actually, I thought someone would tell me I was going to kill myself somehow.)

    No. Unless you are diving with split fins also...
