Jim, if I do, will you come back????? You were original ADVR customer #3 in the US, FWIW.
Of course I do not know from experience, but I think the answer equates to them staying in place. Look at the cinching strap placement in this pic:
You can see that they are close together, just adjacent to the "crotch" of the arm. On the upper, it is cinched and you can even see an indentation on the outer side. I know what you are describing on the BMW jacket, and I do not think the ADVR2 will do this.
Does that help? I am stepping out for an ST ride, but I will try to get into the office and look for some better pics later.
One other thing, IMO riding any jacket with a removable Leatt collar is The. Best. Vent. Possible.
