      Great product, very well built, double bladder for redundancy. Flys great and although I have a couple of dives on it so far it has been working flawlessly. I am retiring my dive rite wings and going sidemount. I should have done this years ago, sidemount is the only way to go. No more backmounted tanks for me.

        Comments about Hollis Gear Hollis SMS 100 Side-Mount System BCD:

        Great BC but seems hard to adjust... the crotch strap is not easy to grab wihtout help. I use it for side mounts and think side mounts is great. I think the bc is heavy, bulky and not very easy to adjust without help. it has plenty of lift. I did note the air release, not that well at all. you have to make sure it is straight up else air will not escape. either uppper or lower, you may need to turn, flip whatever it takes to release the air as it seems to get trapped. there is no weight system but i understand frm Hollis it will be here soon. i had to get bag holders to attach to shoulder straps on back on bc.

            Don't get me wrong: it's a great BC but Nomad is better.

            The donut-shaped wing in SMS100 causes the buttplate to raise when inflated and therefore is a hassle to use as a sidemount harness.

            The bright side is that I found it before using my just bought SMS100 and for the second time, the LeisurePro return system was flawless.

            Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

            Questions about this item:

            Rodrigo S  What would be the recommended length for the inflator hose when using a single back-mounted tank with the SMS 100?
            TOM H  I use the Hollis longer corrugated19 inch inflater hose with a 27 inch lp hose
            roy T  whats the difference between single package and dual package?
            Joe S  The Dual Package has two bladders inside the shell for redundancy. The single has only one bladder inside the shell. The second power inflator for the second bladder comes off the bottom on the right hand side and is stowed until you need it, which is hopefully never.
            marwan e  Hi. if i bought this bcd what do i need to buy also to get it used underwahter, i mean do i have to buy any straps or buckles beside the bcd to use them with it? is it ready to get out of the box and put it on with two side tanks and the backside mount? i have all of my gear ( reg. - cylinders - weight etc.)
