First ride was very satisfactory. Fit is great, especially with the alteration removing two inches above the knees. Material is highest quality as is the workmanship. Definitely value for money.
I pondered what to do to attach the variable controller for my heated vest. It has a clip but there is no belt to clip it to. I have come up with a prototype solution. A flat plastic plate goes into the left pocket. A large tie-wrap goes through two holes in the plate and the large loop hangs down where the controller can clip to it. Pictures are on my blog post for today.
I'm going to replace the tie-wrap with cord or fashion a strap and ring if I can find one large enough but not too large in gauge of ring's steel.
Very pleased so far.
