I know its a bit of a shot in the dark but does anyone know of a manufacturer of a flexible manifold? I do know of one that was to join 2 tanks that was a yoke/din fitting with a braided line with a post in the middle. Im more after something for sidemouted tanks to join say though the high pressure port of the regs but still be able to be quick released from each other if the tanks had to be off mounted or passed off.

Nope there is not one made. We messed with it in the early 90s connecting the HP ports but the flow was not enough. We also put quick disconnects on the outlet port on Modular valves but that only works for disconnect because the pressure is too great to reconnect.

I would not do it for side mount as it's just easier to fly rule of 1/3rds on them.

Just thought for a little less task loading that was all. Bit of a worry having 100-200 bar of gas in a hose running across your torso dragging it through a cave when the whole point of sidemounts is to squeeze into tighter holes.

It actually is not that difficult to set up but it just does serve the purpose of side mounting.

You could put H valves on your tanks and have a short whip running from one to the other. If you need to isolate, You can do it from either side.
Never did it before, And probably never will, But it should work.
