Roger check out waldrop pac seat website. He has 4 videos on his site showing how to use his seat. Video 4 shows how he trims his. I have a Rancho safari long coat as well and trim mine very similar. I will say he is in a much warmer climate than you or i

Yep. I wear a long arm guard as well. I don't trim anything off the chest. String just presses against the fabric there, if it touches it at all. Haven't had it tangle yet, though I suppose it could.

I cant post pictures on here anymore but if you zoom in on my avitar you can see that I trim my bow arm and use a sock tupe arm guard. I also trim the chest area on my bow arm side.

I give my left chest area a hair cut, and I also remove the left arm completely. Most of the time my left arm is contained within my body line from the animals persoective, so i don’t even chance a string contact episode when it comes to the moment of truth.
