Currently i rock my same old Yellow Kevlar Mk 21, with brass weighting and some chrome plated bronze. Changed the diaphragm and used medical clean room grease on the moving parts. Leaks as it always did with usual predictability. Miss the Mk V, one could smoke in that hat.

Maybe a disco ball and a boom box full of BG's tunes "Stayin' Alive"?

Personally, I prefer to get in and back out before they know I was there. If they see you coming, they will target you like a laser guided rocket.
