    If you do go for a pony then get a decanting whip and top up the pony every time you fill your cylinders. If you want a reserve then every little help and keeping it full avoids the 'do I fill it...

    This thread reminded me of spare SSD on the shelf (the missus wanted a bigger disc) so, after checking my data usage, I figured I'd move. I'd remembered wrongly (it's been a while) and my Clonezilla...

    My information is a few years out of date although I suspect change may have been limited.

    The only important feature is that they fit whatever you wear on your feet when diving. Anything else is a matter of personal choice and how much money you want to spend.
