I even hold the bar higher with gear on because my torso stays more upright with the wider stance.

Also, VERY good point on the air. When I get a belly full of air it makes a massive difference at the bottom.
Nope I think we said the same thing, just misunderstood each other a little. I think the gear is slowing down you squat, not you slowing down your squat. If that makes sense. Either way, both ways are working for you now, it it aint broke DONT FIX IT!
