    I really wasnt sure where to post this so feel free to move it if necessary. Once again I'm sure only I have this problem. Due to the back cushion requirements the side "posts" of the chair are only so high. This has led to an interesting problem, as I move left and right the posts jam me in the kidneys. Anyone else experience this? How did you fix it? I was thinking a chest sheild worn around my back?

    I haven't skimmed the chair rules in a while, but would it be illegal for you to pad the posts???

    I was thinking and remembered kidney belts from football. So I looked at them for boxers and dirt bikers. Those are a bit bulky and might not fit under your whites. So I looked at weightlifting belts. I still like the idea of a chest protector worn backwards. You may have to cut it down a bit for a better fit and coverage.
