    I have a 40 pound evolve wing. Last minute trip to warm water.

    Can I use the 40 pound with a single steel 100?

    I the larger double wings will taco but not sure about the small ones.

    you can, but it won't be ideal as it will taco compared to a single tank wing. you don't have a buddy you can borrow a wing off of?

    If you can, get a wing from DGX......30 lb lift.....$199, then resell when back.

    See how this Zeagle Ranger has a system to hold the wing down

    I have one of the 30lb DGX wings. I really like it actually. The outer Cordura shell is stitched together really well. It feels like my Halcyon wings.

    OP I dove with my 40lb Evolve wing on singles and it was super annoying, but manageable.

    Just got a unexpected check, I'm thinking of adding another purple halycon wing to my collection.

    All I can say is why? Just get a SS BP and be done with that over weighted nonsense.

    This I modified to harness a chestmount rebreather I built
    Do you know what size I am and or what neoprene I wear

    Cool story, bro. How it is relevant to OP's question—no idea. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Try reading the bit about holding the wing down instructor boy

    For this chestmount a plate is not as comfortable as a harness and doesn't permit the weight required
