WOODCRUISER-

What happens if you relocate the kidney belt so it sits perpindicular to your body and within reach of the chest straps? It looks as if you're pulling the kidney belt down in the front to fasten it. You may need it there so it doesn't ride up but if not or if you haven't tried it:

Before fastening the kidney belt, grab both belts as close to the back protector as you can and gently pull down...while pulling down fasten the kidney belt perpindicular to your body.. then attach the chest straps to the kidney belt.

The belt would be up around my ribs. I can't wear it that high. The problem is the chest protector area is too short..
Not really sure how to get around that one.

Jeff

---when you say too short, are you referring only to the lycra material or the plastic chest plates as well?

If the chest plates could be made a few inches longer that would be perfect, I was assuming you guys were using a one size fits all plan there. If you can't make the plates longer, than just adding material below the plates would be better than just longer tabs to connect the chest protector to the belt.. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,
Jeff

options

the most difficult part of building such a product is being able to get the masses to fit the product.

Wildwood at 6'5" doesn't exactly fit the "mould".

We can modify yours Wildwood by adding material to the chest plate, possibly just the bottom off another chest protector. How much extra material do you need there?

You said you can't wear the kidney belt that high, just for my info. what happens if you do? does it just slide up?

I guess I could, but it would be a little weird. I have the max plates in the rear, so it's lower in back.
I just don't think it would fit right up that high.. A little bit of steve erkle going there.. Ha

I've lost track of what is going on with my order.

Hi,

I've lost track of what is going on with my order. I ordered/paid for it on July 31st. It looked like a shipment was arriving to you on Friday (August 12th). I am needing this for a trip leaving on August 29th.

Am I going to get my gear by this date?

PM'ed also.

Thanks.

Hello again;

Being shipped to us, if I misspoke earlier. Shipping and customs clearance will take a week roughly.

We're looking at shipping starting on the 22nd through the end of that week,,,

I sent you a PM surfer....

Looks like you were going to start sending out orders today...are you still taking orders?

Also, I have a question, I'm 6'2" 210lbs and I'm right on the edge of a M/L and XL/2XL per chest dimensions, but I also have long monkey arms. Do the XL/2XL have longer sleeves than the M/L?
