    Check this out. Really very good
    Yes, thanks, looks great the way JH does it, but no Dring on the P1 where it would be needed... -Andy

    Neither did mine, but you can add one anywhere it's needed by using a D ring and a belt side thing to keep it in place.

    Is there a chest strap in front ?
    You could attach a thicker , stronger bungee loop somewhere behind your schoulders, attach a thin bungee loop to the thick loop and attach this thin one to the chest strap. If there isn't a chest strap just attach them to each other with a small clip in front of you. The thin bungee is only to find / retrieve the thicker stronger (and short ) bungee in your armpit. You could also let someone stitch some small webbing as part of this loop with a ring to have a stiff connection, the bungee stitched to the webbing would still pull your bo back.

    Don't know or this is still understandable without a picture

    If you don't want the ring to clip in ( so you don't have to use a chocker on your BO clip) then you could ditch the ring also if your main bungee si strong enough, the bo would be supported by the butt plate or waist d ring anyway.




    Just a thought

    Andy,

    I have a similar setup to you and I use bungee for my bailout. I will take some pictures over the weekend but essentially what I have done is to thread a quick link through one of the sewn loops on the back of the Prism 1 counter lung to clip the bungee into. The other end of the bungee loop is attached to the backplate. It is hard to explain but easy to see - I will post photos.

    A length of bike inner tube works for me. It's permanently attached both ends with tie wraps, I just stretch the inner tube over the valve handle, it stays in place without any issue. I also use the single butt D-ring on my crotch strap for the bottom of the rig, which keeps it nice and tight into my body.

    I only use the top clip on my BO for clipping it off to a drop line before exiting the water.

    This shows the back of the right counter lung with a quick link to attach the bungee to and the right hand bungee loop attached to the backplate. I also have a D-ring fixed onto the back of the counter lung for stages and other stuff.

    Interesting. I've just got a loop through a hole in my backplate a little shorter than a foot long. Pull it forward, loop it around the valve. No need to attach the bungee to the harness d-ring, when you're not using it, it tucks out of the way. I find that if I clip the top bolt snap on the bottle to the chest d-ring like normal, then bungee around the valve, it pulls it tighter to the body and back out of the way a little better than just with the bungee.

    Hello EngelenD, sorry for the late reply, good idea, thanks for the suggestion. Definitely sounds workable but I need to see if there's a simpler solution that can make use of the existing Prism1 features... -Andy

    Hi Andy, sorry for the late reply, in the process of moving. Thanks for the pictures, great idea. Hadn't thought of using those sewn in parts. The best idea I could come up with was taking one end of the bungee and finding a way to attach it to a male fastex and clip it into the unused female clip that was used to hold the CL from the side.

    Is that a stock Prism harness and wing I see in the picture? Did you manage to attach a side mount butt plate to it? Do tell, please... -Andy
