I inflate my bag with air, I find it tends to work better than water does. School of hard knocks and all, thought I'd pass it on since everybody has given good advice.

It is as much of a part of my gear as my regulator is. Mine sits in between my harness and wings out of the way until I need it.

I think you'd be better carrying a good SMB. It's better as a suface marker in the event you get seperate from the boat.

It can be used for light lifting also.

All I can say is you did it to yourself. Never post anything you don't want anybody to see, enjoy the couch buddy.

Seriously though, it's better now then later.

OK, lets move on people, nothing to see here, it's all over except for the weeping and gnashing of teeth, move along carefully, don't want to get tripped up. I don't even know this guy, he just happened to be where I was.

More like a dry suit, turn to adjust auto dump, push to manual dump, on the one that I used. Another style has a pull cord, like an emergency dump valve on a BC. I prefer the dry suit style, since it is automatically adjustable.
