    Unfortunately MattJ and myself both dive in caves where this is par for the course, rather than an emergency drill.

    I'll post up some photos of how I run mine

    Here's a 7L steel cylinder shown next to my typical sidemount regs.

    Note the snoopies running all the way down the cylinder. This is for stowing unused hoses under (like inflator hoses when dive calls for no wing/wetsuit) or gear under (say a rope for climbing beyond a sump or crowbar for underwater digging).

    The regulator hose is 1m and runs up, behind my neck and, hangs on the opposite side to the cylinder it attaches to, attaches to a regulator necklace (both sides do this).

    The SPG hose is maybe 40-60cm, can't remember which, it's long. Inflator hose is 30-40cm and works for either wing or drysuit at this length and works ambidextrously.



    The valve on the cylinder has a bit of bike inner tube around it.



    You place a bight of SPG hose through here, allowing you to pull it out to allow clear access to mask in low vis. To pull back into place, put finger where it is in this picture and pull it back down.



    But on most dives in reasonable vis (or short enough you can check it between underwater sections) it sits pretty down here.
