I’d like some opinions on what tanks you prefer for side mount diving. Please feel free to provide comments on why you selected the answer you did.

Also, look for a similar survey for back mounting.

[Choose #3] I use the 72s because I have them and they were cheap. They ride pretty well and are big enough for casual sidemount diving. Some day I may upgrade to LP85s. Update: In 2017 I did get some 85s and they are great!

[Choose #4] I’ve found LP Faber 85’s to be the best all round sidemount cylinders.
