Sidemount diving originated from caving diving as means of fitting through very narrow passages, it also allowed cylinders to be pushed in front of the diver or removed completely to fit into even smaller holes. Side mount diving offers excellent benefits to the advanced recreational and technical divers, streamlining is greatly increased as the cylinders are tucked under the diver's armpits and are right in the diver's slipstream, ease of movement through the water is therefore very easy. The use of two cylinders allows increases redundancy as the diver is carrying two completely independent systems. The cylinders can also be carried to the water by hand and attached either just before getting in or in the water, this makes side-mount diving much easier on the users back.
