Two weeks of being togged up in inferior apparel, and I was more than ready for my suit to return. Examining the repairs, I was blown away by the technician's attention to detail. I'd noticed the frayed liner at the hip and ankle, but didn't think it was worth mentioning. Evidently not. A novella of an invoice listed the work: Patch the lining in five places, re-stitch seams at the wrists and ankles, repair torn armor pockets and replace the majority of the Velcro sections, all in addition to the work I'd requested. I was afraid the tech had taken my "any other needed work" authorization as a carte blanche to rack up a huge bill, but the total cost was only $305, with most of the minor repairs billed at just $10 each. Considering the years of service I've gotten out of Old Pinky and the years I still expect to get, that's quite a deal.
