Hi Michael D!
Sori for late reply.
I'm referring to SM. Actually I figured it out already.
Thanks for sharing Mike! :)

Hi Carmichael,
Q: are we talking about SM or BM configuration?
I'd never loke to have my backup light in the pocket. In case of main-light failure in the dark one should be able to signal his team _inmediately_ that there is a problem.

Any advise of a neat way to stow the 2nd back-up light on the left harness without getting cluttered with the trim device's inflator stowed there too? Aside from putting the light in the pocket too. Pics will be great to illustrate any share. :)

Thanks Jeff. I'm thinking I might give it a try. I have not been very comfortable in my dry suit lately due to fitting issues fact... I'm down right miserable but I'm still comfortable in my 7mil. I am really looking into this option for the Intro to tech ocean dives and beyond this month. And dropping some weight would be optimal.

do you not run the risk of rapid cooling if you are in such a thin suit at depth and your heating system fails?

Hey Todd...last week, 55º F /13º C, I did three 45 minute dives teaching with the Solar. Exposure protection was 3mm wetsuit, hooded vest, no gloves. Completely comfortable the whole time, and used half the weights that I would have carried with a dry suit.

Anyone using the Wetsuit Solar system in So Cal waters? If so how do you like it? What temps with that mm suits?

Recently I've been using a longer hose (30") on the necklace with a 90 deg elbow and routing the house under the right arm. This has been for single tank BM. So far, it's worked very well and is tucked in very nicely. Any one else doing this? Problems?
