I built a transformer with the buckles and adjustment straps flipped around the way that everyone has requested. It did allow you to overlap the panels. It also made the back of the saddle a little messy and took away from the structure of the saddle when it is in single panel mode. In order to run it like that you would also have to walk in with the leg buckles unhooked or loosened quite a bit. Honestly guys this saddle walks in so well that I don’t think you gain anything from overlapping the panels. On another note, I have made a couple larger sized versions for some guys that got a preorder last week and they worked out well. If you’re a 38 or smaller I wouldn’t go up a size. 40 and over the size 2 is an option. So if you get an order and think you need a bigger size just message me your order number and I can take care of that for you.

I’m halfway through all 30 preorders from last week. A little bit ahead of schedule. Should have them all done and shipped by the 20-25 of this month if everything goes well

Saw some questions about the different types of D rings I’m using so I thought I would answer it here. I use whichever Fusion D ring that’s available when I order them. It seems that there is an aluminum shortage so the d rings are hard to find at times. I’ve used both styles and I honestly can’t tell a difference between the two as far as comfort. For the bent d rings I turn them to where the bend is in towards your body because they wear better like that and turning them out didn’t cause any comfort benefits. Also the molle that you saw on the bottom of Spencer’s saddle is just something I put on all of my personal saddles. The one he reviewed was a saddle I built for myself so it had the lower molle and d ring. If that is something you want on your saddle message me when you order one and I’ll add it to your saddle no charge.

I finally got the remove-able/adjustable leg straps and buckles figured out and functioning well. For any of you guys that have one of the first 50 saddles that want that feature it’s pretty easy to update it so just get with me and mail me your saddle if you want or need that feature and I’ll update it for you. Sorry I didn’t think of it sooner

It’s a really slick system. I was only going to do it if I could find a way to keep the strength up to par and the cobra slide works really well for that. The fact that it made the length of the leg buckles adjustable was a big bonus because it allows you to move them away from those d rings and eliminate the noise risk of them touching. It also makes the saddle more of a custom fit for guys with different leg sizes

@JCLINE84 - Fantastic improvement! I hope you're planning to build a truck-load of saddles this year ... 'cause if you thought you were busy before ... the "Saddlehunter effect" is about to raise the bar higher and melt down your inbox!
