Re: Blackfly Canoes - Where should we go in 2017?

Re: Icon, Idol, or Meridian dry suit?

I got an Icon last October and have been very pleased with it. It is still bone dry, with the only maintenance being 303 protectant on the gaskets every few weeks and a wash when it started getting funky. To address a few points mentioned by others in the thread: ...

In conjunction with a relatively high saddle back (slightly higher than my tail bone), which keeps me from sliding back without the foot pegs, this keeps me in my boat securely enough to allow me to roll, but still allows for quick ...

Re: Lap belt vs thigh straps

I do personally prefer thigh straps over la lap belt. A set of high mounted thigh straps, with the side hull anchor behind and below the hip bone and the crotch anchor as high as possible positively focks my legs into position and there is virtually no way for my bum to slide around sideways ...

Thigh strap/hip pad locations

... built my first C1, a Remix 69. I placed the upper thigh strap anchors in what seemed to be the optimal location, approximately 1.5" behind my hip bone. The issue i'm running into is I've decided I need hip pads but the thigh strap anchor is right where I need my hip pads. Is there a rule of thumb ...

Re: Bulkhead + thigh straps
