Yesterday I wore my new Argonaut 23# Singles Wing + VDH Classic Plate + PRAM + OMS (Faber) LP66 for the first time with a wet suit (2/3 O'Neill jumpsuit) in open water.
I am thinking that the corrugated hose is too short for me for this gear configuration. (Orally inflating the BC at the surface was a bit challenging.) I've just placed an order for a 19" hose, the next size up.
Has anyone else here had a similar experience, and subsequently ordered the longer corrugated hose?
