Just ordered a pair of the Sand 2 pants and will be picking up the jacket this weekend (after one last fit check). Can you tell me if the HiVis vest interferes with the attachment points for the neck brace (or vice/versa)? Also, as a suggestion - I'd like to see another pair of warm weather pants, either well vented or mesh, that are in some way waterproof as well in the 'mid level' price point. These would either be something like the Sand 2, but with larger / better venting like the large vents on the Poseidon pants, or something like the Tornado pants but without the insulation in the liner (just the waterproof layer). Now that I think about it, I would buy a pair of Tornado pants in a heartbeat as well if the Hydratex liner from the Sand 2 could be used in place of the Tornado's insulated liner?
