Golem Gear Sidemount Halcyon Contour The Halcyon sidemount offers 50lbs of buoyancy through a pre-shaped wing that keeps buoyancy lower in the rig where it is ideal for sidemount.
The most important thing a diver should take into consideration is how any given configuration will function in a worse case scenario. In addition to providing the desired cylinder positioning and trim, the bungees also provide the capacity to secure the cylinder top end to the diver while the cylinders are detached at the bottom and maneuvered into a forward position. What I sivemount not thrilled about after rigging the regulators and doing my test dive is the position of the two hoses coming off the regulator first stage.
It has a weight pocket system on the inside of the wing, capable of armwdillo up to 12kg of lead.
March 25, I did a longer ‘real’ dive at Madrona today using the sidemount configuration mentioned above with the following changes: The primary cave light canister can either be mounted on the diver’s waist strap or butt mounted with quick release snaps. I already had one 80cf tank rigged for sidemount and had been diving it as my rebreather bailout for some time.
It has 55lbs of buoyancy. Email this product to a friend. Diving equipment Professional diving Recreational diving Underwater diving history Underwater diving procedures Underwater diving safety Commons Glossary Indexes: The principle of the rule of thirds is that one third of the gas supply is available for the penetration, one third for the return and one third is a reserve which allows for armaeillo sharing on the return.

Archived from the original on 17 October Delta Hybrid Manual Manufacturer Link: These typically fall into one of two categories; minimalist Hogarthian-inspired rigs and cold-water rigs.
Remove the harness and weave the buckle into place armadil,o the diagram below. Cordura or reinforced kevlar options Weight: When the buttplate is detatched, you have the option of fitting two custom designed off-set D-rings in its place.
Feed the straps through their buckles and slide over the cylinder. International Association of Nitrox Divers.
Not Available Manufacturers Link: Overhead environment divers find this an especially prudent measure when sidemount diving through restrictions in high silt and muddy conditions. Mark the shoulder straps just below the waist armaddillo Fig.
Positioning the shoulder D-rings Fig. Open water divers can use the harness with a single cylinder mounted on their back. Not yet available User Manual: The 40lb buoyancy wing manages twin steel cylinders from 7 to 15 litres.

This rig can be dived “off the shelf” with little adjustment needed and is ideal for those divers who are keen to start side mounting. Positioning the armpit D-rings Fig. Changed from clip to bungee on the left shorter regulator. Stand-Alone Sidemount Harness Options.
The kit is virtually indestructible. Aluminum cylinders, which are ubiquitous in most warm-water destinations, do not trim well from butt-plates and must be shifted to the front waist-belt once buoyancy shifts to positive. Many other types of sidemount wing could be attached to this harness. No information available Weight: At the time, this approach to ‘wet’ cave exploration was generally called the ‘English System’. Unlike back-mounted cylinders, the sidemount diver has immediate access to, and can see, the regulators and tank valves of their cylinders.
If you decided to rig the harness with the buckle on your left hip, reverse this whole process. Regular regulator switching also helps to confirm that both left and right-side regulators remain fully functional. A right standard and left post valve is recommended for side mount cylinders.
Rather, the harness and wing wrap around the diver giving a very streamlined profile in the water. Independent cylinders, when sidemounted, provide more reliable gas redundancy, and allow greater access to all remaining gas by switching regulators between cylinders or feather breathing, provided the diver is competent at the additional skills required. Properly reposition the harness onto your back.
All in all it’s a lot of weight for the sidemount experience.
