i'm not too concerned with the look IF they work better. i'm more of a function over form guy.
but if it's a major pita to get them adjusted just right, i might just stick with the regular ol' style.
now to decide how big of a size to get. hrmm. i've gotten to be a bit of a fat ass, plus on icy days i wear padded shorts under my pants... so gotta make sure i have clearance room for them.
