Partway through college I realized I was treating my education like a chore and needed a minute off to reevaluate. What to do instead? Move to rural Appalachia, of course!
I've split my years into distinct halves over the last few years; snow season and river season. Spent three of those working as a river guide on the New (I-IV) and Gauley (III-V) rivers in Southern West Virginia with some incredibly talented people, learned plenty about moonshine and a little about boating, too.
During the winter, I live in downtown Salt Lake City, snowboard at Brighton, and do a lot of tromping around in snowshoes. I just like being outside.
If you've got questions (or just want to nerd out) about the following topics, I'd love to chat with you:
Whitewater of any kind
Why inflatables get a bad rap
How to live in a van down by the river

It does not.
Can't comment on the new clamshell zipper, but I've got the same fears. However, I can say that bigger dudes do well in the L/XL. My partner is 6'2'' 215 lbs and has been sporting a special edition version of the Green Jacket (floation rating exactly the same, of course) 100+ days a year for the past 3 years, and it's still going strong. It's definitely a rescue classic for a reason.
Just wanted to share some sizing details from Mountainsmith's site:
For the SMALL:
Dog Girth: 20" - 30"
Dog Length(Nape of neck to base of tail): 15"
Dog Weight: 20-40 lbs
For the MEDIUM:
Dog Girth: 24" - 36"
Dog Length(Nape of neck to base of tail): 19"
Dog Weight: 40-90 lbs
For the LARGE:
Dog Girth: 32" - 44"
Dog Length(Nape of neck to base of tail): 22"
Dog Weight: 80-120 lbs
No padding in this one... there are two layers of fabric, so it's not too sheer.
Just wanted to let folks know that the welt pockets in this jacket will arrive stitched shut. The stitches are meant to prevent the pockets from causing the vest to sag, and are meant to be removed by the customer after purchase.
The Acadia 13 seat is molded to the boat, so adjustment of the actual seat is not possible. It is possible, however, to adjust the backband of the seat by clicking the ratchets forward and back to find the position that is most comfortable for you.

According to MHM, their products are manufactured in Vietnam and the Philippines.
The biggest difference between the two is the upper material: the Escape GTX is made from nubuck, and the Ramble GTX is made from suede.
What's the difference between the two, you ask? They're both leather, but using different sides of the hide. Nubuck is the sanded outer side of a hide, and with suede, they sand and use the inner side of a hide. Nubuck is generally a little stronger and thicker as a result, which usually makes for a slightly more expensive product.

It looks like our buyers have ordered some size Small packs, but we won't have them until October-- check back then!
We have an order from Prana on the way-- there should be new sizes and colors posted before the end of August, so keep an eye out!
The description from Outdoor Research's website does indicate "padded" shoulder straps, but the straps look pretty thin to me in the photos... marginally padded, maybe. ;) Hope this information helps.
I've got a 2L Osprey Hydraform (http://www.backcountry.com/osprey-packs-hydraform-hydration-reservoir) crammed into my Black Diamond Bullet, which is slightly larger than the Cam... but really, any hydration bladder will work.
Hope this info helps!
That's really the color. I've uploaded some additional images.
I have not used this particular jacket, but the square used for the sheath (slightly obscured by the drop-down fabric) is the same standard one you'll see on any whitewater jacket, so it would definitely work with the Co-Pilot knife.

So my husband is 6'1'' and 210 lbs. He tried these on in the L and the XL, and he ended up going with the XL for a roomier fit-- he said they were pretty tight in the crotch and the rear. The XLs definitely look more like loungewear. I hope this information helps!

We do ship to Singapore!
This is maybe the most flattering, best-fitting hot yoga top I've ever owned. The t-strap back is surprisingly comfortable, and great for movement. I'm a 36C, bought a M/L and it fits perfectly.
