Comfort problems with custom fit rig? Can't Post

Has anyone ever ordered a custom fit rig (i.e. you sent in your measurements) and had problems with the fit of the rig? If so, were you able to get modifications if there were problems; and were the problems resolved?

A couple days ago I had the opportunity to meet the person who is making my first rig. He re-checked my measurements and had me try on a couple of rigs to get an idea for sizing. I was a little suprised to find out that it's not an exact science to convert someones measurements to a 'perfect fitting' harness. I guess I thought it was like getting measurements for clothing such as a suit - always a nice fit (or at least that's what I've found).

I'm pretty sure I'll get a good fit and be happy with the final result but I still have to ask if anyone has had problems with a custom fit rig?

Cheers,
NewGuy Cool
