AGV Sport knee sliders

So I bought a one-piece AGV Sport leather from a guy here on MH. He pointed out that the velcro on the knees is backwards from most: the scratchy part is on the suit, requiring the soft part to be on the pucks. Sounds like one of those nefarious "you must buy only our brand" plots on the part of the manufacturer.

I bought a pair from Motorcycle Superstore. "Replacement Knee Sliders" made by (and with the logo for) "AGV Sport." But these have the scratchy part on them, too!

So what is the recommended course of action, here? I imagine returning these would eat up half of their purchase price just in postage. Is this the way most sliders are set up? Is there a common way to adapt the suit to use normal sliders (such as, apparently, these)?

Thanks,

--Todd

go to a fabric store and get some double-sided velcro. they sell them with both sides scratchy or both sides soft. cut to size and you're done...

Thanks, didimao. I'll go see what I can find. Wasn't sure if there was a better/more standard way.
