Although designed for small spaces, sidemount diving has actually become widespread as a popular approach to underwater exploring.

Developed in coordination with leading sidemount cave divers, SCUBAPRO's X-TEK SIDEMOUNT SYSTEM, with its modular design, quality components and independent air cell, allows you to build a fully customized rig to handle any recreational or technical sidemount dive plan.
Sidemount diving was originally conceived as a specific cave diving layout, allowing better maneuverability in small spaces. However, as the benefits of sidemount systems have become better known, sidemount divers can be found virtually anywhere there is water to explore.

Available in two sizes, SCUBAPRO's quality SIDEMOUNT SYSTEM is fully adjustable and compatible with X-TEK back plates, providing a configuration for every diver's needs.
