If they'll charge me 65 bucks for a new bag, I want a gift certificate from them for my broken bags for 130 bucks.

are you guys really riding faster and jumping higher with North?
noticeable increase in girth?
more stamina?
Has your IQ jumped 20 points?

For quick fix www.fixnzip.com.
Product is available at some camping or mountain equipment supply stores.
Use the large size. I've fixed 2 of my zippers this way and they've been going strong for weeks now.
Takes a bit of screwing around and a few tricks 2 first get it started but it works fantastic once you get it working.

You noticed too?
The day after I started riding NKB everything just changed.
