Sidemount

Sidemount diving is a technique developed by cave divers out of necessity when it came to exploring tight passageways and pushing through tight restrictions where traditional back mount systems just simply wouldn't fit. 

Today, sidemounting has seen a surge in popularity, and not just for cave diving. Divers with knee and back problems have found side mounting easier to mount and manage 2 cylinders. Sidemounting is also a more streamlined solution and as a result many rebreather divers now side mount their bailout tanks. 

Early attempts at side mount rigs were makeshift, DIY solutions. Today's side mount rigs are well built, well thought out solutions.
