    Just some comments...

    I have used a similar approach in the past, but have changed to having the top part out of bungie as well instead of webbing.

    The reason being...

    It is quicker to make for multiple backplate. Easier to adjust for different tank sizes, etc.

    But the most important part is I could slip the tank off/on very quickly and easily while u/w.

    Normally we wouldn't have to do that, but when my buddy's argon bottle was 1/2 depleted accidentally during transport and he failed to notice before the dive until we hit almost bottom. Instead of calling the dive, I unplugged from my drysuit, pulled the bottle off, handed to him to add gas. When done, he gave it back and I slipped it in place in seconds.

    With the webbing, it would be more difficult to reach up, pull and stretch the top loop to insert the tank.

    Just from my experience...

    Wheres a good place to mount it?

    Cheers

    From Nov 7th to 20th, staying at Diveoutpost. I will be stopping by the NACD Annual Seminar on Sat 12th.

    The first week for training dives and the second for some real dives.

    Looking forward to it immensely
