Hi Mark, congratulations on your move from Simply.
I think you have both of them, so can you fit an Apek’s WTX wing on an Xdeep Zen backplate?
#askmark. Mark, on a different channel you reviewed the Santi Flex 190 drysuit undergarment. I liked what I saw and bought it for my first drysuit experience. In a 7mil with a Steel 100 tank I normally dive with 18lbs of lead (8kilos). With my drysuit and the Santi it is taking me 38lbs (17 kilos) to get barely negative! This sounds excessive but I don’t know anyone who uses this undergarment. Can one undergarment like this require 9 kilos? If not, any thoughts on why I would need so much extra weight when switching from wet to dry?
I have watched your reviews of equipment like Fourth Element and Apex shorts but have not found any consideration for holster style shorts. I find the concept of the off brand Tongina Cargo Shorts Wetsuit Pants With Pockets intriguing for warmer water destinations. What do you think of this option if there is no need for the added thermal protection?
What things, specifically, do you always take on every dive in every situation?
