So what does that prove? Not much other than they need to be thicker to be anywhere near as comfortable for long periods of use. On top of that, I was talking about the back padding looking smaller on the Husky than it really is due to the distance away from it that I took my pics. It is far more than enough coverage for anyone's back, and is a very durable material unlike the Echo's.
Listen bro, I'm glad you like your Echo. I do too. Tthey are great blowers, and almost bought one just before getting to demo the Husky. I am glad I waited. The Husky is just more blower for the same money all the way around.
