*Note – these are MY thoughts and what I came up with.
There has been quite a few people concerned with the latest Jack Gear being “not as good,” or different than the original Jack test gear.
People were panicking and it seemed like mass hysteria was gripping all of those anticipating the new Jack line to be ready for purchase, myself included. I was waiting on a back-up and worried that my back-up would be inferior. I was wrong.
I own one of the two original Jack squatters. I decided to take my suit out to the gym today to compare it to Adam Driggers’ Jack suit, which is not one of the originals and received months after I got mine.
Here’s what I found:
They are exactly the same.
His suit is the same thickness, the same cut, same stitching, etc. I even weighed the suits on a certified package weighing scale. My suit, a 56, weighted 3.5 pounds. His suit, a size 50, weighed 3.0 pounds. If you take into account the extra material it takes to make my adult-sized squat suit compared to his toddler-sized one, they are equal in material, relatively.
The only thing they did different was make the straps on the newer suits less thick (a plus).
Not EVERY suit will be EXACTLY the same, but I think for the most part they’ll all be very close.
