>I clip my game bag on my left D-ring, next to my spg.
I liked it on my chest D Ring in the day, but found it a problem at night.
.
Poney bottle with bungied second stage.
>I use doubles and/or look at my spg. No need for a pony.
John B. cured me of that :) . I never have run out of air accidently, but after borrowing his gear and what happened, I wanted some insurance.
.
Console for all gauges.
>Wristmount. A quick glance is all it takes. I don't have to reach for a console.
I've had problems making fast grabs with stuff on my wrist. Too much smashed gear. Do you go after the bugs much? My console stays in place really nice.
.
I've never really looked at V-Planner... Curious...
.
>I keep my shoulder straps loose enough to be able to get out of my gear. No need to add a possible entanglement hazard.
Hmmmmmm... I like them tight, but then I never go near a gill net. I think there would be no problem releasing since I can take it off and on pretty easy UW. ... Still, I stay away from gill nets.
.
And I ain't died yet.
Enjoy, seahunt

Oh, I should add that next wetsuit I want two thigh pockets. One with a flap and one without like I have now. In the flap one I want a sausage, a chem light, my small backup light and a mirror. The non-flap one is for a lens and stuff I pick up.
I like the idea of your (presumably) Halcyon BP with the utility pocket in it for a lift bag or that float they sell. Fred T doesn't offer that this year.
