Sidemount may be a new word you've been running into lately, whether it be on dive forums or a glossy dive magazine. So why should you get into this kind of diving, and what benefits does it offer? In short, sidemount style BCs have taken world of cave and wreck diving to another level with their unique flexibility and unorthodox mounting positions. Divers who need to fit themselves into tight spaces to navigate new environments can more easily manoeuvre their tanks through wholes and openings without completely disassembling their gear. Divers also enjoy the more horizontal swimming position. Technical divers who need to control their gases carefully have complete access to their valves, and do not rely on a buddy to open and close tanks. If you're looking to go deeper into caves and wrecks, a sidemount BC will take you further than ever before.
