Missing a trick

I'm really pleased with my purchase of a pair of RAB leggings but as is so often the case I think that sports kit manufacturers have overlooked the requirements of rowers and sculler. In our sport we are bent over, much as cyclists are, but we are exposed to weather on our backs, not our fronts so we need the back of our legging wear to be higher above the waist (but without the padding that cyclists have incorporated in their seats) and the bottom of our fleeces to be much lower at the back than at the front. This was by having these two garments overlap we can keep our lower back and kidneys warm. Participation in rowing and sculling has exploded in the last five years and particularly since the Olympics and there is a growing market here for appropriate kit.
