VB go "now who was telling me about these...?"
Oh! It was Danielle's sister. She hates the velcro shoulder thingies.
VB go "but..."

MB go "Yeah, the velcro idea is doomed."
It'll snag on stuff, get lost, and lose it's 'stick' after a short time of actual wear. If they didn't test the velcro patches idea for at least a month of heavy wear, real drag-through-the-mud practice, it's not enough. Good boots, though, and other bits seem smart.

Order the Sept/Oct 2003 back-issue of "I.D. Magazine" for an excellent article about the ninja turtle armor & robot donkeys Crye has designed for tomorrow's Iraq occupiers.
