Rod,

I have the BAS standard buckle, but most pilots prefer the utility buckle.

Regarding oxygen, I use Aerox Conserving Cannulas (moustaches) connected to a long 22 CuFt bottle under a SAIR center console. With my setup, at 10K one person consumes half cubic feet per hour. For just the pilot, with the tank full I have enough oxygen to fly 45 hours at 10K. Too much oxygen really, but I bought the largest capacity tank that fitted under the Center console, since the difference in price of the tanks is irrelevant, a 22 CuFt system is only $25 more than a 9 CuFt system, so buy the largest tank that fits your airplane comfortably to save in trips to refill the tank.

The Mountain High electronic pulse demand oxygen system lets you use a regular cannula, but it’s not cheap. The Conserving Cannula is comfortable enough for me.

No matter the system, buy a pulse oximeter. When I bought mine, they cost close to $200, no they are close to $20.

Thanks Jose. That is exactly what I'm looking for. Would you know anything about the different choices for buckles? I'm also wondering about oxygen systems. I see when I go over 10,000 feet, my blood oxygen starts dropping. It would be nice to have oxygen available but i'd hate to have tubes and bottles dangling all over the place.

Not all, but almost all Cessna pilots agree that the BAS is the best available.

I am continuously upgrading my 1978 172XP. Next item on the list is seat belts. The originals are really not all that good. I would love to find a good 4 point belt solution or at least a really good 3 point belt. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
