    Comparison of VDH 23 and 35 from @Bryan@Vintage Double Hose from Post #47 Special on BP/Wing combos. #18 #23 or #35 lift.

    Not clear from his post which one is on the left/right, my guess would be the 35 is the left since it looks slightly bigger...

    Post #50 from the thread is also interesting since it specifies the absolute dimensions of the wings deflated and inflated. All the wings exterior dimensions appear to be almost identical in side +/- 2 inches.

    The 35 is on the left..... it's nearly impossible to give precise dimensions on a flexible bag with an internal bungee cord trying to construct it when deflated
    ..#18 wing is very compact and is perfect for the tropical diver or one who knows how to properly weight themselves when wearing a wetsuit.
    #23 is slightly larger overall and will work great for diving in a 3 or 5mil suit.. again taking into consideration the diver knows how to properly weight themselves for the dive they are doing..
    #35 is the largest but still more compact than most #23s and #25s on the market. Great for the diver wearing lots of neoprene or diving dry with a single cylinder... Again assuming they are properly weighted. My opinion, experience and observation only.
