    yeah someone really should have video taped that attempt. That would have been as great as the kid who back flipped with nunchuckus (nunchucks for non-martial artists) and landed on his head and then tried to still do the demo while he was falling unconcious. Dont have the link but its out there in youtube land.

No problems so far, and I will be avoiding swan diving into my blackbird's shelf

    I remember Brandon posted that he had a very low rate of zipper problems. I think one was cause by a snag and I am not sure of the other. Anyhow he said with all he made it was a percent of a percent.

    I have however replaced zippers for coworkers from cheap faded glory jeans. I also had a problem with my pit zip on my packa. So I would say not all zippers are created equal.

    That was THE funniest thing... he got up and was still flipping nunchuckus around and couldn't stand up straight and fell again...

    zip failure is pretty rare in all equip, but not unheard of. So how about field repair with a BB? Can it be done?
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
