Piss the gas into the wind, cut the handset cable if it came to that and bail out. You do carry enough bailout hopefully....

    I agree doing it would lower the probability of a snag no doubt. Its just thinking thru what the backup plan if it did happen. Currently, with sufficient arm strength you could break the signal cable or connection to the handset. I guess only a test would tell.

    You should go try to pull a piece of velcro apart with lateral force. The stuff holds like superglue. Of course it also depends on the grade of velcro and the fabric strength that it is afixed upon.

    Also, you warm water wimps do not have any idea how much more difficult it is to cut or unattach anything with cold hands and cold water gloves. :)

    I'll pass on the velcro, as posted get the cable length correct and do a wrap or two around your arm. Pretty much eliminates any loops & doesn't seem to restrict movement, Works for me.

    I am a little slow, so wrapping the cables around my arm just confuses me more, and I end more entangled

    I shorten the cables and run everything behind my shoulder and under my arm. Stack your stages left and keep your cables on the right arm. Never had a tangle this way.

    Re: Cable management options

    Ok I will admit this is pure speculation as I don't have either the dry-suit or the re-breather yet.

    My original thinking was thinking was to glue velcro loops for cable management, then I was wondering would not a length of cable protector like (rEvo Cable Protector) cut for the elbow and then run it for the straight lengths?

    The elbows would still have loops, and I was only thinking for the Fisher cable and Setpoint controller cables that run to your forearm.

    Re: Cable management options

    could use the quick release bungee straps like on the shearwater handset...then if you forget its an easy clip todo up..or get out of if you need to fast.....just a thought.....
