    I saw the Summer 3 at the dealer recently and they look great.

    Does anyone know if they shrink after washing? I've heard that the Summer2s will.

    More importantly, what are the differences between the 2s and the 3s?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have Summer 2's...Care Instructions inticate "Do Not Tumble Dry"...So they should not shrink with proper care. Washing cold won't shrink 'em.

    You probably want the mods to move this to the non-flea market "Gear" section.

    The protection in the Summer 2 is a lot better then in the Summer 3. Also the Summer 2 are slightly wider in legs than the Summer 3.

    All in all, the Summer 2 is a better buy.
