A necklaced reg is one held under the divers chin, usually by means of a bit of bungie that goes round your neck, hence the term "necklaced". There are various ways of doing this and you can lots of arguments with different people about whether the bungie goes under the cable tie holding the mouthpiece on, or whether you should be using a more forgiving arrangement should this get a "tug" from an OOG buddy.Am thinking of some new kit but on reading other queries on regulators, have come across the term "necklaced" with regard to second stages. Can somebody please explain idiot fashion? (and yes, I am blonde but what's that got to do with it?)
...personally I'd be more concerned about the backup reg hose routing *under* the arm but then I'm sure Chasey's gonna give us a good reason why he does it that way. It's probably got something to do with the length of the hose - it does look very long! Might be worth getting yourself a 22" hose, Mr Chase... and that HP hose looks a tad long too! lolsee how it isn't clipped off
What, like jeans worn with the waist somewhere below the buttocks and large back pockets behind the knees?Can somebody please explain idiot fashion?
