    Making the gauntles fit

    I have some great looking Cruzer gauntles

    My arms are not as big as the gauntles. The gauntles fall to the side...

    How can I make them fit so the stay firmly on my arms? I am thinking about some foam underneath the flightsuit, or some elastic inside the gauntles, like I have with my upper arms of my TK.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I had the same problem with my MOW gauntlets. I just glued a piece of 1/2" (13mm) foam to the inside of the gaunt staying about 1" away from each end. Seems to form better to my arm now and it doesn't rotate anymore. Hope that helps.

    That was my first idea also, to glue foam. I need more then 1/2", my arms are really small.....:o
    My worry is that it will keep rotating, but in your case it doesn't. I will give it some testing. Thanks
