Proximity has its benefits. Our office in Orlando is about a 15-minute drive from that of staunch wake supporter Underground Products, so we take semi-frequent trips to their warehouse to stay up to date on what Kyle Hyams and the other designers are churning out. We took one such trip yesterday to check out UGP's Fall '08 lineup, which looks dope by the way. While we were there, we got a sneak peek at UGP's first-ever comp vest and life jacket offering. There are four styles total and each is available in a Coast Guard-approved and non-Coast Guard-approved version. They're available this spring and they'll run you $125.95. Anyway, thought you'd like a look.
