Here is a picture sorry it took so long. You can see some of my reinforce stitching. It may look a bit stupid but it's super comfortable and gives me something between me and the snow. And since they are designed for the water they can be used in any environment. And if you don't trust the plastic, a little sewing and you can replace the plastic with metal.

Thanks! Not stupid at all. It's great that you're innovating and creating your own stuff. What I don't like about that setup is the pivoting hook on the bar. I still have one of those too! There are several welds there that would make me nervous. No gliding with that unless I had a separate climbing harness or other backup device to hook into. But it would be easy to customize a spreader bar for that harness.

Thanks again.

:o Interesting you mentioned the pivoting hook. I kite with very few people and typically in the snow so you are all covered up. I didn't realize until I replied to you that it, the hook, is not common. Gear inspection is more important to me as I get better. Never really thought much about gear failure when I started. :o
