you are kinda shootin' off blanks on that backplate issue. If i were to ditch the lead i wear with my SSBP there's no way in h-e-double toothpicks i'd be able to control that last 15-20 feet or so and i'd be Mr Polaris Missile dude, at least with my current drysuit. The whole rig is sooooo easy to slip out of, that the BP and weight issue is not even a bid deal....one flip of a single buckle, and a diver is bobbing high out of the water. I know that because Firewalker, JW, Ira and the whole group on the MAgician got to see me fumble around like an idiot one day doffing and donning the DIR double Al80s on the surface...well, at least they had some good laughs.
