I've had decent luck with getting some weight out front but think that for my body, a truly satisfactory solution would remove or substantially reduce contact with the front of the body by carr...

Jack Stephenson's letters
I'm not sure when I might be able to dig this out, but I think I must have some letters from Jack Stephenson somewhere. I remember him telling me his thinking about his waistband and wings, how, i...

MH packs
Thanks Bill...I can see a lot better on those pics. Looks like you ran the wands farther forward on your "clone", right? It looks to me from the pictures like the MH would be more out of the wa...
