    I'd recommend talking to a coach in Turkey. I spent some time last year with Yağmur Cesur (listed occupation as Fencing). She's findable on Facebook, or if you PM me an e-mail address I can pass...

    Oh Gods, I'm not disagreeing with the hard working, nor the flamboyant.

    He has a reality distortion field that would make Steve Jobs blush and has more teflon on him than Tony Blair.

    It's going to be quite tricky to use a material that doesn't deteriorate quickly over time. Neoprene will compact too quickly I would think (given the requirements to maintain "softness"). ...
