DGX Custom - Sidemount Cylinder Packages
- Includes Two (2) cylinders pre-configured for sidemount diving
- Nitrox Ready with left and right DGX Premium Valves (select style)
- Cylinders are ready-to-fill and have a current month Visual Inspection (VIP) Sticker
- The package also includes valve dust plugs
- Choose the optional stage strap kit you desire
Both cylinders are Nitrox Ready with left and right DGX Premium Valves that are satin finish chrome plated brass with standard 200-Bar DIN (G 5/8" BSP) outlet. We ship your cylinders with the valves installed and straps assembled (domestic ground US only, all others we will ship cylinder and valve uninstalled.) The cylinders have a current month Visual Inspection Sticker, thus no re-inspection is necessary before filling. The sets also include valve dust plugs. NOTE: the LP85's and the HP100's INCLUDE the tank boots. Boots are available separately for the other cylinder sizes if desired.
We offer the cord and webbing based stage strap kits, as well as the pictured Dive Rite Sidemount Strap Kits which are perfect for sidemounting. Using the cam strap, instead of a hose clamp, enables the entire assembly to be quickly installed, removed, repositioned or adjusted without need for any tools. The ability to easily reposition and adjust the strap, even while you are in-water, is particularly attractive for fine tuning sidemount configurations. The Dive Rite Sidemount Strap Kit includes all the items needed to configure sidemount bottle using a wide Deluxe Hose Retainer, EPDM Hose Retainer, a low profile cam strap, and a neck clip choker for sidemount.
Sidemount Cylinder Sets
Our cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS neck threads, NOT Metric M25 neck threads, and the valves have overpressure relief devices. The cylinders have US DOT and Canadian CTC markings suitable for use only in North America. Our cylinders and valves are NOT CE approved and NOT suitable for use in the European Union.

on 24 September, 2018As a sidemount diver, I have come to appreciate a cylinder that that can put up with the abuse of being repeatedly laid down on sand and rock, wedged through narrow restrictions and scraped down tight passages of an old "rust bucket". The Faber LP 85's in hot dipped galvanized finish are just what the doctor ordered. To have the option to purchase them together in a sidemount specific setup at a price you can't beat anywhere... well, that not only saved me a bunch of money, but it also saved me the time of having to order from multiple places and hiring a technician put the set together. Thank you, DGX!
1 person found the following review helpfulExcellent product, minor glitch with delivery
on 15 April, 2018Excellent tanks, no complaints whatsoever with the product, just a feedback for the delivery, the two tanks were put in two separate package, one package has one non pressurized tank and two valves while the other package has only the tank without the valve, and for some reason this one was held up in custom because it was considered as dangerous goods, suspected as pressurized cylinder, DGX was very responsive and completed the additional form required by the courier service, and the second package (tank only) was received a week longer than expected. Maybe if each tank was packaged with their valve, then probably it will make it through the custom. However this shows how DGX is a very responsible shipper and made sure the package is delivered to the customer.

on 22 April, 2017Excellent tanks for sidemount. I use them with my DiveRite Nomad LS. Perfect integration. After a while you don't even notice they are there. I don't do caves but they are handy in springs and caverns, especially when you have to haul them some distance on land to and from the water (like at Blue Springs FL.)

on 11 August, 2016Once again DGX surpasses my expectations. Both in quality and price. The fact that they did the research to match buoyancy characteristics for sidemount is a testament to their dedication to this industry. While other sell you what they want to sell. DGX sells you what you need.

Valves for Sidemount
Typically sidemount divers use cylinders with a matched pair of left and right hand DIN valves together with a pair of DIN regulators also configured for the left and right side (yoke style fittings are ill-advised in most sidemount applications.) The cylinders are then attached to the sidemount diver using their preference for bungee strap styles. If you prefer to cradle your valve with a traditional style bungee strap you may prefer our Modular L/R valves that offers the additional post extending out of each side. We also offer Modular Long Neck L/R valves that have a little bit more space just above the base so that you can take a wrap with your bungee. We feel the ring style bungees are best mated with our Pro L/R valves as they do not require your bungee to wrap around or loop onto the valve.
Having valves and regulators with specific orientations means you must pay close attention left and right whenever the straps and regulators are rigged to the cylinders. We'd like to point out that the compact inline valves commonly seen on rebreather cylinders have no left or right orientation. Using sidemount travel stage straps and our Inline valves with ring bungees means your sidemount cylinders would have no fixed orientation and would work equally well on either your left or right side.
