The chest strap does nothing except make it harder to breathe. Increasing your work of breathing raises your CO2 which increases your 1)need to breathe, 2) chances of an O2 hit, 3) chances of deep water blackout, and 4) the bends. The rig is plenty stable without the chest strap if adjusted properly. Cut it off. Better yet sell the rig and get a good one.
