    Question Mudman rear pad

    Got to thinking the other day (dangerous, I know) & wondered about the rear pad on the Mudman. Would that fit on the case back of a DW-6100? I was trying to think of a way to keep the case back away from direct body contact to give the thermometer a more accurate ambient temperature reading & the Mudman pad looks like it might be the answer. The small raised pads would keep the case away from your wrist & allow for better air circulation. Of course the question comes up on where would I find just the case back & would it fir on the rear of a DW-6100. Anybody know? TIA
    Here's a picture of the back that I'm thinking about (shamelessly borrowed from the "Images" thread, cmoy's shots of his beautiful GW-9000-1JF Mudman from 2006):

    Too small, I'd say - and probably the wrong shape.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I hate to bust you up, but I own a mudman just like that, and the back does not keep the case from resting on your wrist. The only point to the small nubs is just to irriate the skin (well, they do for me).

    Re: Mudman rear pad

    Would someething like off of the back of a Riseman fit? I have a Riseman, and it does keep the case back from touching my wrist.

    Re: Mudman rear pad

    I don't think it's going to make a significant difference - even if you remove the conductive heat transfer, you're still going to be radiating heat, and your watch is still going to be pretty close to your body. Good idea, though. Maybe if you sandwiched a piece of one of those foil-type emergency blankets between the watch and the back, then it'd do something.

    Re: Mudman rear pad

    The other thing you could do is use a ZULU type strap, and wear the watch on a belt, or on your backpack (if hiking, etc). You could probably even rig up something with a carabiner, and have a secure way to quickly attach/detach it.

    Re: Mudman rear pad

    Just bought a set of adapters this morning & I'll be using a Rhino strap instead of the original strap so I'll see what that does. Thanks for all the responses!

    You could always buy a DW-6100 already equipped with adaptors and strap

    /pimp mode off
