I'm just starting out and looking for options. I'm usually diving in cold water with a dry suit or 7mm and carry a lot of weight (34lbs). My reg. will have a Phoenix unit for the inflation hoses so I am FAR from a true vintage/retro guy but I'd like to retain some of that look and style. Some kind of backplate and wing? Where do I put all that weight? How can I position the tank low enough for the reg. to function properly with a standard BCD?
Thanks....I'm behind on the "learning curve",
