    Testing three different sternum straps

    I saw that in Tom Bihn's flickr site.

    If the picture doesn't post it is somebody testing 3 sternum straps with a Brain Bag. (or it could be a Synapse)


    I think it would be a good idea to test each strap with people of both gender with different shoulder width, sternum and chest size.

    The inclusion of adjustabilty in both position and length would hopefully make it useful to a greater range of body types.

    That's a great idea! We'll have a sternum strap testing party with Casey, June, and everyone in the factory.
