    Rear mesh panel can become itchy

The sculpted Ergogel pad is one of the few concessions to comfort Altura has made in an item that clearly places more emphasis on performance.

With tight mesh straps, a wide back-panel and silicone in both the grippers, front panels and edging the straps, they fit so snugly that you wonder if even a crash would dislodge them.
