I have the Hollis backplate/wing with the Elite harness.

So far, I love the plate (hell it's just a plate, they're all pretty much the same) and love the wing (38 lb lift, doesn't flop around like the DiveRite wings) but the Jury is still out on the Elite harness. I was looking at the standard Hollis harness at the shop this week, and think I'd probably like that harness better... it's a simpler design.

both the Hollis ats and the HD-100 are "tech crossover B/C's". They are set up like a back plate, wing and harness (bwh) without the back plate.The nice part about these B/C's is that they 1.) offer that minimal style just like a bwh that frees up your chest, 2.) unlike a bwh, these B/C's are lightweight and therefore great for travel (My backplate weighs in at around 8 lbs. When you are trying to make a required weight to fly, weight isa precious commodity. I am really thinking about getting the ats just for that reason,)3.) they offer back inflation which helps you get into that perfect horizontally planed out position in the water. All in all they are great B/C's that offer back inflation, weight integration, and a sturdy/comfortable harness. If you would like to try one out, stop by MBT. We'll be glad to let you play around with one.
