In order to make sure the suspension webbing slides through the d-rings smoothly, I would focus on putting sleeves over the leg and waist buckles, personally. I use small sleeves sewn out of camo fleece for this purpose. Very easy to make, just the right amount of stretch and works well to quiet down the metal tinks.
Got pics?

I saw in previous posts someone stretched bicycle tubing over the D rings, this is something I plan on doing. Doesn't interfere with the function of the rings.....I will have to untie the one side of the bridge to slide the tube on though. I need to confirm that's a figure 8.
I had bike tubes on mine and took them off. Make sure you trim enough of an opening around the ring/ bridge area to slide without interference. That will create its own little noise when moving if not. I Stealth stripped ‘em.

Lots of great ideas guys, thanks. I don't even have the saddle yet, and I changed my mind a few times on what my plans are...haha.

Here you go. I slide them up to fasten/unfasten the buckle as shown in first pic. Then pull them over the buckle when wearing my saddle as in the second pic. Very simple.



Thanks looks great

What are y’all’s initial thoughts?
Obviously not much time in it but my initial thoughts:
Quality is exceptional as everyone else has stated.
I’m more of a single panel guy and mostly lean. Best way I can explain it is it’s like having a latitude method and classic in one saddle and I think if you have the panels separated it’s more comfy than the method and with panels together it’s better than the classic and the classic is my favorite saddle to date. It’s going to take a little diy to quit down the metal parts but I think it’s worth the effort.

I told you guys this was a sweet saddle. I’ll be holding onto mine for a while.

Your review was spot on. You really can make a noticeable change in the feel by pushing or pulling the D rings and the panel adjustment, which looks a little backwards when you watch someone else do it, is exactly how it should be.

Couple things I’m playing with so far.
Found an old neoprene golf ball sleeve that I cut and put over the waist buckle.
I’m not a leg loop guy but there’s no way I’d ever cut them off so this is what I’ve come up with so far. Thinking I might cut the thumbs off a pair of old neoprene gloves I have for ice fishing if I can find them for the leg buckles. I removed the male end of the buckle and rolled up the straps and put a heavy rubber band around them.
I don’t think I’ll mess with the d rings because I don’t want to hinder their ability to self adjust and feel that if they are kept tight to my body until I’m ready to tether in they shouldn’t 25E06AA5-0DD0-4A68-B34B-CF3E78D574E3.jpeg22F9F5ED-E556-4A19-B006-734B5EF4D0AA.jpegbe an issue.
