Dry Suit w/ BP/W

I am taking the Dry Suit course in a few weeks and I was wondering if I am going to have to readjust my BP/W to fit the drysuit? My normal diving is with a 7mm and a hooded vest. I guess If I have to do the waist strap that is not to big of a deal, but I do not really want to have to mess with the shoulder straps.

The question is weather you will ever dive wet again cause if not then once you adjust for the drysuit it will stay that way like when you set it up for your 7mm. weather you will have to adjust or not depends on too many variables like what undergarmet, what type of drysuit, ect ect ect.

Isn't this just a perfect reason to get a second plate and harness

Huh? This should be a minor adjustment so it should take all of few minutes to readjust. It more than that you may not have the harness set up right in the first place.

This is why I use the Dive Rite deluxe harness. Any small adjustments can be done with the chest strap. I use it with my drysuit, my wetsuit with core warmer, and without, and just a shorty.

That sounds good to me, but I would have a hard time getting that past my wife...

Well it would not be a big deal except my harness is not setup just to be moved. It is held in place with a rubber sleeve over the 2" webbing. If I move it then I will have to re-adjust the harness to get it to fit me with the 7m mon which requires me to get into the 7mm in my house which is not pleasent being in a 7mm wetsuit and messing with the harness then trying it on and then adjusting it some more. I would just rather not mess with it if I do not have to.

I guess I will just see how it fits. If I have to move it then I have to move it...
