  • "Mic"

    Anyone know what happened to the "mic" clamp? It's clear plastic with an adjusting nut on each end. Been wearing one for two,years and wanted a backup. Way more comfortable than the Cunningham barely a bump under your shorts and being able to adjust both ends  makes it work perfectly.
