    Where can I get Slippery gear in Canada?

    Does anyone know where I can buy Slippery gear in Canada? I've msg'd the company and I'm waiting for a response, but I'd thought I'd ask the good folks here as well!

    Thanks!

    Well I got an email back from Slippery regarding this... so anyone else who wanted to know, thought I'd share the verdict. You can't. You could buy it stateside, but I don't think it would be legal as their stuff is not Canadian Coast Guard certified. *sigh*

    I use slippery gear all of the time. I have never been asked to see the CCG approval. I would just buy it if you like it.

    I have used a Jetpilot lifevest in Canada for 13 years now and been pulled over numerous times by the police. No issues. I did have a black and yellow one buy now have an all black one.

    I buy all that stuff down in the US. If you know your size, it isn't an issue. I am not sure if Dennis Kirk ships to Canada. They send me a catalog every year, but when I buy from them I ship it to friends in the US.

    What are you looking to buy?

    Some of this stuff is available at the ski dealers in A-Bay. It is worth the drive.

    A-Bay? What is that sorry?

    I really like that vest, I think I'll heed yer advice and get it... I mean, more than likely, what will happen? A slap on the wrist? I can't see the police getting all regulation crazy with not wearing a vest that's CCG certified now that I think about it! lol, if they do, I'll post it so you guys can laugh at my misfortune then!
