    I love mine. At this point I couldn't see going back to a large. My next goal is to get the taller domes (mine are old style)

    Can you replace the dome and retrofit? I have an old xl

    You have the taller dome.  Here's a pic of the two domes side by side:

    The height on the old XL and the Large (base to dome) is identical. They finally made the proportions of the XL correct with the taller dome. But, I do agree it looks awfully funny with the shorter dome.

    Guess I have an old xl with short dome.
