Welcome to the Cave Diver's Forum.
  • Configurations RSS Feed

    This site is designed as a resource for both new and seasoned cave divers. You will see here a multitude of different equipment, configurations and styles including but not limited to, back mount, side mount, DIR, and rebreathers. It is the author's intention to present these equipment choices and configurations in an unbiased manner, so the educated individual is presented with a wide variety of options in order to make a well informed, personal decision regarding their caving gear and style. Many thanks to the people who have donated their time, ingenuity and knowledge to make this page available and especially to those who continue to educate about safety, knowledge, technique and conservation and are actively working to keep our wonderful underwater caves open for diving!!

    If you would like to submit pictures of your personal gear configuration and/or an accompanying text to explain why your gear is configured in this manner or if you have any comments or suggestions as to how this site could be improved, please feel free to email me at Rich@cavediver.net. Thanks for taking the time to look at this site and safe diving!!

    The purpose of the GEAR CONFIGURATION RESOURCE PAGE (GCRP) is to provide a resource or library for reviewing other cave divers gear configurations and methods. This section is not a place to learn how to cavern or cave dive. This section contains plenty of ideas, comments, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, in how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content posted here, and the ideas and opinions posted herein are personal ideas and opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate, or at least extremely subjective. Entry into any overhead environment without proper training and equipment can get you killed (movie with sound). Opinions expressed in this section are not necessarily those of the sponsors

    Looking for PST Steel 80s

    Do you mean the stubby short HP 3500 PSI tanks that are 7-1/4" diameter with 7/8" neck threads?

    Great job Ken and Kyle and everyone who helped! Thanks, folks.

    It's great to see so many friends at the workshop. I did Andy's Radiolocation workshop; very cool stuff. Also Kirill's photography...

    Is the line through the restriction still holding and going straight through and down to the floor? Or did it pop it's tie off and get pulled back to the right? I don't see it in the picture.

    I had fun, and got in a dive, but then came down with a cold and had to head home soon after the workshop was over.
