Where do folks hang their back up torches with OTS counterlungs?

If I hang them from my OPH, they'll be under the CLs.

stuffed in a suit pocket, same place I kept it when diving OC.

My suit pockets already have enough in them; spool & blob in one side, back up mask and wet notes in the other.

As long as you can still get to them wouldn't have thought it was a problem (or get BMCLs ;-))

On the harness under the lungs just like on oc

BMCLs are on the to-do list, but they are a fair way down it. This is an interim measure until then.

Just put it under the lungs. Are you ever gonna need to get to it in an emergency? Hardly imho. Light fails, you will have "some" ambiant light to be able to get out your back up.

realistically how big a backup torch do you need? take the spool and blob and clip them to a butt plate to free up space if you need to.

I carry spare mask, epirb, back up blob and spool in one 'get out of jail pocket' pocket and notes, radio, goody bag, small lift bag and small LED backup torch in the other 'everyday' pocket. my primary reel and blob clip on the butt plate.

I carry a small led in a pocket, too. Worst I'll need is something to follow a line with.

Use the OPH and get Agir Harpa to pull it tighter. After all, now you dive an Inspo compliance concerns are well in your past :D

You've never dived with Mark Powell have you? 🙀

Anything like that clipped off on your butt plate would be slyly unclipped and returned to your kit box before you even jumped off the boat....
