    Texas,
    #3 The valves are all very well hidden; it would be almost impossible to grind them on something without contorting yourself in some weird positions.

    #4 I think it would be difficult to tear apart, but I've only had it a little while. Seems well built

    I have a nomad JT size L, new, without original box. 230 plus shipment.
    some info here:

    Texas, I wanted to add that I have the dual bladder one and there is no issue with it causing unequal inflation.

    The inflator hose runs off the opposite side (like the primary was mirrored) and the bladder itself is on both sides of the wing (not just one) I don't think it's removable unless you want to tear it out.

    Maxpcf, do you connect a LP hose to the second power inflator or plan to use an oral inflation?

    Oral Inflation,

    Currently I have the primary hose clipped across my chest as standard in SM and I run the second hose across my hip to my crotch ring. This keeps the hose taut and close to my body so it doesn't get in the way or sag.

    I bought the LS as my first side mount rig and I love it ! The ring bungee system also makes getting your cylinders in trim very easy which is a problem for beginner sidemount divers. Make sure to purchase the dive rite stage straps along with your LS !

    Hey Kyle, just curious what cylinders you're diving with your new LS?

    I have Worthington X7-100's and PST LP80's in doubles configurations right now that I'll be splitting when I make the switch to sidemount. If the buoyancy characteristics work for me, I'd like to sell them and buy Faber LP85's (four of them) so I have the same exact tanks.

    Basically down to deciding between the LS and making my own rig (with help from a sidemount instructor) and using a Sump UK wing.

    So i just spent a week diving the ls with worthington steel 85's and al 80 stages swimmin and scootering. All good w/r to sturdy, ease of use, etc. i don't like the low profile hardware so i will probably change that out. I dive dry, so redundancy was not an issue, but neither was lift. Thought i might need extra weight so i threw 3 2's in the weight pouch they make for it. Easy to do. Not so comfortable with those weights on your back. Turns out i didn't need them so not really an issue for me. I took off the bungee hardware and just tied it securely with a snap on each side resembling an old school setup. Worked perfect. Mounted backup lights on the straps with the knowledge that they were going back in my pockets if they had to be re-stowed. Need to get the lift just a little lower with my oms fins or change to a still lighter fin. Would be interested in seeing what clipping off the bungee to the lower d-ring would accomplish (actually raising the point of attachment and the center of the fulcrum). I had them clipped off to the o-ring below that, like i do on my xt, and that might be just a little low on this rig. Dropped the lower cam bands a little on the 85's and that helped a bit. All in all, a nice travel rig, way smaller and more stramlined than my nomad xt, and tweakable for a nice horizontal profile for steels or aluminums for swimming or scootering with minimal undies in a scubapro neoprene dry suit. Nice job on this one dive rite.
