    Many thanks.

    I have to some how make the time and free up the cash to get back to Mexico next year and dive some of these caves properly.

    They are just epic

    Brett Hemphill and I are the 2 who designed and perfected. the Armadillo sidemount system originally just for the deep pits cenotes (cave) of the Yucatan. The armadillo sidemount harness allowed us to also wear climbing gear at the same time. In the area of the Yucatan we have been exploring for over 10 years, all caves are pits ranging from 25 to 100 feet to the waters surface. Some you can hand climb down into, but most are virticle rope drops or dry cave to a sump.

    The Armadillo also allowed the team to transport lighter single tanks, instead of heavy doubles long distances from the vehicles to the caves. Singles are much easier to pull up on rope also than doubles, because of the weight and they don’t get stuck in the tree roots or vines growing on the sides of the caves.

    Using Rebreathers in this type of exploration is very difficult because of the abuse they have to take being drug through dry / muddy caves or pulled up and down on ropes. Something is bound to get broken, really quick.
