Re: Its not just dive computers

One thing I've notice nowadays, is these super-fancy, All-carbon composite pony bottles which can give you up to a full 6000 PSI or even MORE! You get a few extra minutes if your rebreather conks out to get you to your dive buddy or to your previous safety tank drop-off station when you're diving in confined spaces like caves or in big wrecks.

My pony bottles aren't 6000+ psi, but with one on each of my lower legs, I feel safer knowing I have enough air to get to my dive buddy.
