An inherent problem for rebreather divers has always been the difficulty in achieving proper trim in the water. As experienced divers will tell you, proper trim is more than just your ability to orient yourself horizontally - it's the ability to stay there, perfectly balanced, while not finning or moving. Having to constantly fin to maintain proper trim is subliminally task loading. When faced with deploying a reel, or managing an emergency, the task suddenly becomes that much more complex when you find yourself needing to fin for proper trim. 

Many rebreather have this trim issue because of the 'inverted tanks,' inherent in the design. Most, if not all rebreathers have their O2 and diluent bottles mounted where the valve is on the bottom, moving more weight to the bottom of the diver, and affecting their center of balance. It is also affected by the counterlungs themselves. For proper hydrostatic loading and low work of breathing, the gas in the counterungs is ideally located at the same level in the water column as the lungs. Fo rate horizontal diver, this is generally above the shudders, adding to the imbalance of the diver.

What's the solution? This problem can be somewhat mitigated by the use of a drysuit. Adding gas to the legs helps keep the diver nice and level. But what about when wetsuit diving? Enter the Halcyon CCR 35 wing. Designed by expedition diver Mike Barnette, the CCR 35 wing was  engineered to put the lift where the rebreather diver needed it - down low. The earliest versions of the CCR-35 were designed for the Megalodon and the KISS rebreathers; however, subsequent field use has demonstrated this wing is ideal for most closed-circuit rebreathers utilizing inverted cylinders.
