Can people just email about the helmet bag? The same people who expressed interest in the daypack but didn't bite. I just want to be able to order a helmet bag...

Sherwood MDR looks a little big to me :/

That Sherwood is much darker in person, I guess suede is universally hard to photograph in all parts of the world.

I sag my jeans really low FWIW. Everybody else should too.

I would agree, it seems really wide at the hips

Probably would've copped this instead of waiting for a TOJ if it was black.

lol, thanks for having so much faith in me. I'll try to get some more flattering photos one day.

The camera angle and my poor posture is really exaggerating the looseness at the hips. If it was any tighter at the waist it would ride up when zipped closed. That said, I was definitely after a looser fit and I sized accordingly. Some people aren't going to like it, but aside from the length there's nothing I would change about the jacket.

I was gonna post a few tips to make your shots look better, but it ended up being too long so I decided not to post it. But here are two things that you can do that can immediately improve your shots.
  • Make sure your white balance is on point. If you're shooting in daylight, make sure your white balance is set for daylight, and not to use the incandescent (that yellow glow from left) as fill. Incandescent white has a different temperature than daylight white, which will confuse your camera.
  • If you're taking this with a tripod, try taking these pictures at various heights. Right now we're seeing you as a midget would, which isn't really representative. Play around with the height.

You can play around with ISO, shutter speed, aperture size, and exposure compensation to do different things with your pictures. If you shoot in RAW, you can correct WB and tint in Lightroom.

Ok I hate to be this guy, but I have a sizing question. I'm 5'6" around 155. Definitely have a stocky build with big shoulders and arms. I'm so confused with how to size for a MDR or Moto. Would I need a 50 with much shorter lengths? My biggest concern is that it'll be too tight in the upper arm area. I like my clothes fitted but I don't want to be busting out of anything. Thanks for any input dudes.
