    @Dan is that seriously a nitrox band on your spare air or is it meant as a joke? Not familiar with spare air.

    Why mention the weight of your AL19?

    I would think if you're filling the spare air from your own tank and diving nitrox the label would be required.....

    As for the original question, I would be ok doing cesa from 30-40' max, since while snorkeling I've gone to 40' many times. Any deeper I've usually got my pony on!

    I'm confident I could do a CESA from pretty much any depth I usually dive to. I've recently swam 50m underwater in a pool. But I would attempt to grab my buddy's alternate as my first option.

    And I thought DECO time was to prevent the diver from getting Decompression Illness. If DECO time is only to prevent my computer from locking out I can skip it and use a different computer on my next dive. :poke:

    Yep, I replaced it with Shearwater Teric. Problem solved.

    So If I get a Shearwater I can skip those boring Deco stops?

    If a pony weighed nothing they would be a lot more popular. Surely Marie13 I have read you have joint problems making scuba challenging. I am not immune to those issues either and I want the lightest but still effective pony I can carry.
