Side Mount Scuba

I have been on a slow tedious process of acquiring a side mount system. 

Instead of just plunging in, wallet first, I decided to gather some skills on rented equipment. I have spent many hours researching equipment. None of it is cheap. 

I have made my decision....a Nomad XT system. This is about half the set up. I will need two new regulators hose system, tank hardware and lots of practice. My goal is to be comfortable enough on the new system  to take it down in February to St Croix.

Does this system have major advantages over the old fashioned strapped on the back system?
