As far as I can see, the Engine harnesses would not benefit me when skiing then. When snowboarding, it's a different story and I want the harness to stay in place. With a snow suit on, is there any advantages to this harness over others? Same question with wetsuits. I only kite without a wetsuit for about a month. When doing the mold, would it not be best to have a wetsuit on? When wearing a wetsuit, do you still notice close to the same benefit with this harness compared with others or do you mostly notice it just when kiting without a wetsuit?
I saw the vid where you explain the fitting termo plastic stuff and how to use it. Cool stuff! Where did you find that? video is below for the curious.. =)engine wrote:
3)Tolerances? The harnesses should be fitted onto bar skin to get the best fit. The foam in them compresses enough to make up for thick wetsuits (I wear a 5/4 in the winter). If you are wearing it over a ski jacket or dry suit you still want to fit it to bar skin.
Hey Coleman, did that (special) paper work out for you?engine wrote:So stoked people are talking about these!
4) Finishing details? You are right, they are really hard. I still make mistakes but but as I start to make a lot of them and get lots of practice they are starting to look professional. You can tell they weren't made in a factory, they all look a little different. I'll be honest and say the ones I was making even a month ago had more little aesthetic mistakes on them than I'd like but I think now I've got it pretty dialed.
