Sidemount, a distinctive scuba diving configuration, situates tanks alongside the diver—below the shoulders and along the hips—instead of on the back. Embraced by advanced cave divers, it eases penetration of smaller cave sections and enables seamless tank changes. Its appeal extends to open water and technical divers, particularly those grappling with the weight of double tanks in cave diving.
