I have a tempest and needed to "firm" up the back band and leg lifters. it was flimsy feeling. I put some foam under the leg riser so it it wasnt just "hanging" from the straps on the side. worked great. then, I ran bungie through the slots at the seat sides where the hip pads run through (i removed the pads) and ran the bungie over where the bottm strap connects to the middle of the band. The back band now stays low and is firm. ( could do any adjustment & it will feel firmer this way) of course you could just change it out but this worked and the t band is not a bad back band as far as back bands go, i feel.
