Flexibility and Increased Range are the main benefits of sidemounting cylinders. Twin sets increase the amount of gas you can take down with you but are very rigid, make you quite top-heavy and increase your profile in the water. Sidemount attaches the cylinders down the side of your body so you are much more streamlined and stable in the water.
Ease Of Entry and Penetration because neither cylinder is permanently attached; you can remove both stages and move them around to fit through smaller spaces. Entry and exiting the water is much easier too as you can attach each cylinder in water.
Discipline of gas monitoring and swapping stages is taught throughout the course along with gas sharing and trim underwater.
