ive been spending soem time fettling my gear this afternoon as it ws about time to,

and i looked at the kit i am using as some in the club say i look very sleek and minimal in my setup. yet on thinking about it when i had it all in the back of my landy in bits for inkering tiems i carry a HELL of alor of geart for

at the moment i am diving
a manifolded twin 10s with DS4 and Atx40 on each pillar each with a wing inflate hose and one which has my SPG . comp and compasse in a console,
aly backplate with a 2kilo V weight (all i Need) and One peice harness
Dive right Duel bladder wing to give me a redundant boyancy capability
a wetsuit


i also carry
a Greenforce F2 umbilical torch tank mounted routed to the left side of me and clipped into place so i dont drop the head end that oftern,
a (newly fitted) slob knob to my right hip D ring
when i get around to recharging the batterys a backup LED AA torch clipped to my left D chest ring

2 thigh pouches with

1) having a Delayed and reel in it
2) having a spool and delayed in one pocket, my same sea ish buddy line, and a small goody bag
on drift dives a larger rigid opening goody bag is clipped to my right chest D ring
a dive knife on my primary inflator
some diving scisors on my right side.


my dives are normaly 20m ish stuff, with some and hopefully alot more to 30-35 (pesent max qual depth).

am i carrying to much redundancy? or am i better keeping as is., . everything is easy to get to, it doesnt bother me at all, its out of the way and not dragging in the water

think that answers it paul. in addition to the obvious stuff, i carry:
  • redundant gas source
  • 2 x masks
  • 2 x computers
  • 2 x DSMB + spool
  • 2 x cutting device

i don't carry a spare torch, but don't do much more than stick my head in to UK wrecks. i have used the spare DSMB and spare computer in anger.

2x torches (plus primary torch)
2 x knives
2 x computers (vr3s) + suunto dive recorder (vyper)
1 x smb + reel
1 x spare smb + reel (in pocket)
1 x spare mask
1 x wet notes

I sometimes think I should carry a spare buddy too;)

.

When I saw the tittle I thought you were asking about redundancy money from the company you work for.

Do you actualy dive with a buddy, or need one :)
