Good feedback guys, thanks!
So, do you think you could DIY an ENGINE style harness? I like the concept of those harnesses... the logistics of actually getting my hands on one here in New Zealand though...
@ RORKE. I have a 8M 2011 Rally and feel the same way you do.
Yes you could probably make one considering they are hand made as it is.
You would need to find a way to make a mold from you back, ENGINE uses some type of liquid plastic that turns clear and soft when heated, then it is formed to you back. Then he uses that mold to layup the carbon fiber, cut to shape, sand off the sharp edges, it gets lined with I believe 3/4" to 1" memory foam install your straps and finish off with neoprene... So if you have skills I think it is very doable, be ready to learn from trial and error though.... it might take a few trys to get it right
On the other hand I am pretty sure ENGINE would ship to New Zealand...
