      Comments about Highland by XS Scuba Steel Backplate:

      The Highland SS Back Plate is not as good as a Dive Rite plate. The edges are not finished smooth as for example DR. I have both and I can feel the difference. Where the harness strap goes over the top of the Highland plate, the strap gets frayed in a short period of time (~20 dives in 1 yr). The Highland sales rep suggested that we file it down. That's stupid as filing is coarser than proper machining. Spend a few more dollars and get a DR plate or one from higher quality supplier.I would avoid this plate and SS Scuba for their poor customer & product support.
