I agree with both parts of this!! I would try them on if I were you. See how you like the difference in where they sit on you, the ease of getting in and out of it, the difference in weight of the two, if you would prefer the epi or the soft leather, and if you want the chain strap or the leather strap. The Twist is going to stay pretty structured like it is, but with the Lockme II BB I've wondered if the leather will sag on the bottom after many uses? Good luck deciding.
