Apeks all-new Sidemount Regulator Package is now on sale.

Sidemounting has becoming increasingly popular in recent times, particularly for recreational diving.

Steve Bogaerts, the British cave diver based in Mexico, is one of several devotees to the practice. In fact the idea of Sidemounting a cylinder or cylinders originates amongst the cave diving fraternity.

Cave divers need to be able to un-attach tanks, pass them through narrow sumps, and re-attach them afterwards. Travel gas tanks are usually side-slung too by technical divers.

But the idea is becoming increasingly commonplace amongst recreational and leisure divers. Tanks mounted on the side offer better trim with more accessible valves.

Recognising this, Apeks is introducing a special new Regulator Package with everything you need to dive Sidemount.

The Package consists of two XTX 50 with 300 Bar DIN DST 1st Stages, one on a 65cm (black) lightweight hose and the other on a long 210cm hose.

Also included are 2x (20cm) custom BCD or drysuit inflator lightweight hoses, an Apeks 90-degree Fixed elbow, 2x 8 inch HP rubber hoses and 2x 1.5 inch compact SPGs.

Keeping it all together, you also get a bungee necklace, small end stainless steel boltsnap, 5x o-rings for breakaway clip, cable ties, and an Apeks Regulator bag.

The Apeks Sidemount Regulator Package is on sale now, priced at £995.00 in the UK.
