Have you ever seen a diver on a trip, training or whatever, whom has a loose tank sliding down on their back? I have seen a few that are just about to lose it falling out past their butt only to be held by the hoses. I would bet most of us have seen that at one time or another. I would bet that if you saw them, they had only a 1 strap BCD to hold their tank. 2 STRAPS ARE ALWAYS BETTER.
Two of anything IS ALWAYS BETTER. Only a few products in some industries have full redundancy. Even small airplanes have redundant fuel and electrical systems. WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE MAKE 2 TANK STRAP BC’s ?
We only sell BC’s with 2 straps for exactly that and only that reason.
If you are buying a BC, why wouldn’t you choose one with 2 straps? That is not rhetorical, if you have a reason, I would really like to know about it.
So, bottom line, BUY A BC WITH 2 TANK STRAPS and you will not regret the purchase.
