    The Transpac is infinitely flexible. I don't own one but I have a lot of friends who dive with them and it works for single tanks, doubles, and converts rather easily to a sidemount rig. If you're not sure what kind of diving you'll end up doing, it's a good choice.

    Was looking at the Transpac & accessories for it on leisurepro and found this OMS IQ Backpack Harness at a similar price:

    Does anyone have any info/an opinion on this compared to the Transpac?

    I use the rec wing with mine and love it! I travel with it and like them all there is a bladder inside that keeps minor tears and pokes to the outside cover. I have close to a 1000 dives on mine and it is still going strong!

    Looks almost identical. I have an OMS wing on my Trans Pack, and I love it. OMS products are top quality. I would say go with what ever one feels more comfortable on you. They will both do the same job though.

    Does anyone dive a seaquest balance, or know much about them? I've never dove a back inflate nor integrated and couldn't pass the great price I got to try both. It was a CL steal at $45 (basically the same as renting) and there is nothing wrong with it. It doesn't even looked that used. It was a DM's and the shop he worked for only allowed him to use gear they sold so I got a good deal.

    Make sure to fully check it out before diving! Buddy of mine thought he got a great deal at a scuba swap. Turns out the inflator attachment threads were previously damaged due to being cross-threaded. The place where he brought it to be checked out didn't catch that & it lasted for 1.5yr. Luckily whenit failed, it failed on a routine easy dive. We bailed him out no prob. But scary anyways.
