The G4's Also have zippered pockets for hands and a few other minute features I cant think of right now. For a $100 difference I spent the extra cash as it was worth it for me in the end.
Fascinating read; never heard that before. Considering what the Simm's cost that's an eye opener. I use Dan Bailey's and have yet to have a complaint. Back up, did have one set of chesties that was "Bad to the Bone" right out of the box.
Immediately replaced and I'm still using them 6 or 7 years later.
