Getting my first wing set up and looking for something which I can use for single tanks in both warm and cold water. Also I require minimal amounts of weight

Been thinking about either the dive rite travel wing or the hollis S25?

Would be very grateful for opinions!

Hi, well for what it's worth I have used a Hollis aluminium back plate and adjustable one piece webbing using the Agir Brokk adjusters. Single circular bladder. I picked up a Frog Indigo but there's plenty to choose from Red Hat is worth a look, I would favour a single piece tank mount it's a bit more weight when travelling but nice and secure. I use twin cam bands but again not really necessary a single will do.
This amounts to a light weight travel set up or great for lightweight / shore UK diving. Personally I love the flexibility and it has exactly the same configuration as my twin set. Everything in the same places, so you go straight to whatever you need muscle memory and so on.
Its worth having a look at Dir and Gue sites for inspiration, but as long as it's safe, works ok for you and your buddy (mmm) is familiar with your kit what can possibly go wrong!
Hope this is of some help,
