I never thought I would see the day when sidemount diving became so popular that PADI would recognize it as a distinctive specialty. The Nomad has made this possible with a solution for any diver. There are many options with the Nomad because not one size fits all for this style of diving. We have packaged the Nomad for divers upgrading their TransPac to those needing to get a complete expedition system. The Basic Nomad is just the harness and wing and tank neck chokers, while the Expedition rig is complete with rigging for the tanks. Both systems are available in redundant, dual bladder models. We have more innovation coming in 2009.
Sidemount is the best way to carry bailout bottles for rebreather divers and for the tech diver traveling to remote locations where only single cylinders are available. If you have a question about sidemount ask it and I will answer it in this forum if possible.
