Been following the development of Hogarthian/DIR for a while and agree with some of the precepts but not yet a card-carrying acolyte. One reason for skepticism is the almost religious nature of the converts, and their apparant inflexibility as to choice of equipment. Sorry guys, I have to admit I still believe in personal preference.
That said, I want to understand why DIR calls for a ss backplate in open water diving. I've always felt that to maximize ditchable weight was a good thing. I see the difference with an OE dive, but I don't see how it applies once you have direct access to the surface.
Thx in advance.
