My cats would bite the sh*t out of me if I tried to give them a belly rub like that.

PS - Apparently there was some delay with your package, Fedex now says Tuesday delivery. Le suck

I haz it.

I think the gloves are good. They are a little tight and I think a larger glove would be sloppy on the wheel.

The suit is another story. When I get it on, it fits great, almost like a custom suit. The belt is about 1.5" too big (expected), the inseams is just a touch too long (acceptable), but it fits in the shoulders and chest "just right". The problem is that I need help to get it off since I have poor shoulder mobility. Is this a problem? Will this gear shrink any when I wash it?

Thanks again, this stuff looks great, I look like a rich 17-year old racing SM in NASATX.

Poor shoulder mobility. Rotator cuff/ shoulder impingement problems?

I couldn't pass the dog leash behind my back due to pain. I couldn't fish around behind me for the other arm when putting a jacket on. Reaching across my body to get the shoulder belt inspired agony. I was about to go visit a sports medicine specialist and get myself looked at.

Then I found these physical therapy exercises on youtube from shoulderimpingementexercises.com. I had almost all of my mobility back and most of my pain was gone within one week. Do as the australian dude says and life will be better.

No affiliation, yada yada. I was amazed. It's like my shoulders were locked up due to rust and this was PB Blaster.

It's important to wave a gun around occasionally when you're a moderator. You can't make Hyderibad Biryani without cracking a few cashews.

Ain't that the truth.

What is the long term comfort level of the Defnder? Thinking of upgrading from the foam doughnut this fall and that looks a bit narrower than HANS where it goes down the chest.
