I absolutely love this harness and even though it is not perfect, I simply cannot imagine going back.

Now can someone point me to the thinnest pair of gloves? My hands are a bit sweaty so gloves are probably a good idea but I'd like to retain the "naked hands" feel as much as possible. No dirty jokes please...
Andre, is that you? I'm so glad I talked to you about the Quickfit harness. I decided I'll give HMS a few "two more months" until March and then I'm ordering the Quickfit for Audi/VW since another person said it fits in his 135i.

I remember we talked about gloves, I don't remember if I showed you my cheapo Simpsons. They were the thinnest, lightest, and most comfortable gloves the shop at Summit Point had, and they were also the least expensive. http://simpsonraceproducts.com/produ...s_id=996&sort=
