But dude, really, your cables look great. The twist is pretty sweet!!
I also notice the extra long leads to the terminated ends. I make sure that one end of my cable has extra long leads to keep the bulk of the cable away from the equipment.
I also have perforated leather gear, plus armored mesh textile and all kinds of other gear. It does help and is actually cooler than riding around in just a T-shirt because the sweat evaporates immediately on an exposed T-shirt, while it cools longer when still damp under the textile or perforated leather.
As for the longer leads, exactly right and why I do it too! The twist of the twin 14ga wires is quite a workout for finger muscles. Next time I'm just going to put my electric drill motor in my bench vise and grab the ends in its chuck. Start it at a slow speed and they twist right up.
