    travel friendly RB

    Back to topic ( for me) the JJ is surprising travel friendly, with the stand removed, the scrubber, head and tube go in a small rucksack for carry on, and the rest is good in normal luggage. I picked up in 1 hand a rEvo micro FT, tiny and really lightweight. I reckon that would go in an overhead bin no trouble, and when you et where you are going, I don't think anyone can approach it efficiency with sorb.

    travel friendly RB

    I recently got HH Hobo and it well suited for travel ! I just need to remove wing and everything else fits perfectly to my carryon. Wing goes to my check in baggage. Tanks can be rented pretty much at any dive shop since they are standard 2 or 3 liter faber.

    Flown Seattle to Florida twice with my rEvo 111 mini in the overhead. I had a canvas cover made where the shoulder and waist straps hang out and I carry it like a back pack. Tanks removed of course...... don't forget to take all your cutting devises off any webbing!!!! TSA hates that

    That's everything short of tanks?

    Re: travel friendly RB

    Have flown mine with tank on and valves off. No special cover or anything. Loop on, hud attachted, computer on wrist. Walked around like it was normal and got zero flack. Slipped it in the over head and had a seat.

    Prism 2

    Re: travel friendly RB

    I find traveling with my Prism 2 to be pretty straight forward. I agree that it needs a stand and I'm seriously irritated with Hollis for dragging their feet on it. My instructor last summer had a prototype from them which would be fine if they'd just put it on the market!

    Ron,

    Do you happen to have any pictures of that stand? I agree with you about that. It is a little irritating having the unit be so complicated to keep upright. As for the travel, I generally put the unit itself in my bug out bag (from a military bag provider) with backplate attached as a carry on, as it fits in the overhead bin, and send the wing, cl's and 1st stages under the plane.

    My Instructor had built a stand mainly for doing work on the unit. It wasn't connected to the unit, and it was mostly for doing checks and so on at a some sites we went diving at in Florida. If you happen to have any pictures of that stand, please share them. I really hope Hollis puts one out. They've been talking about it long enough. Hopefully it doesn't add to the weight too much.

    Cheers - Chris

    Prism 2

    Re: travel friendly RB

    No, I didn't get a picture. It was pretty simple as I recall, a light piece of tubing attached someplace to the frame and bent out at the bottom to form legs. I like my Prism 2, but Hollis took a long time to get the small lungs and BOV out the door, and are dragging their feet on this too. I had hoped for better support from a large(ish) company.
