Sidemount FAQ: Position of the tanks?

Where do the tanks go?

Side mount tanks should be parallel to the body, below the shoulders and alongside the hips. The tank bands are located at 20 cm from the bottom of the tanks and attached to the BCD a bit below the hip, the top part of the tank is secured by a bungee system, which maintains the tanks alongside the body.   Depending on the Side Mount BCD you can add D-Rings on the strap in front in order to maintain your tanks down and streamline with your body.
