After my recreational side mount course in Subic, Philippines with Andy Davis, it’s now time to take it a step further and I ordered two side mount systems.
The choice fell upon a brand new product by a longer established company; Hollis and their SMS 50 model. Come mid October I should be able to hold them in my hands and fit them out for proper side mount diving.
The Hollis side mount systems “SMS” are not only made and designed for cave or other forms of penetration diving (wreck) but for any side mount diving! This brand new SMS 50 is no different although this system is build for side mount only!
The advantages of this system are;
- Full visibility over your system – tanks, valves, regulators all within eyesight and adjustable at depth
- Reduces additional gear: Doubles bands / Hardware / Manifold – Benefit when traveling
- Aids in transporting gear to and from the beach or boat – one tank at a time
- Streamlines profile which in turn reduces drag increasing your bottom time
It’s a first of its kind harness, wing and plate in one and ready to dive out of the box.
Side mount training is coming your way soon! Please contact me for me details.
