Found this in a google cache;

The 2003 Snow Kiting Jacket allows the rider to wear their harness underneath their jacket and has many features that help make the snow kiting experience more pleasurable. Check out the features:

1. Harness adjustment access and pit zips: This 2 way zipper allows the rider to access the harness w/o taking off the jacket and also acts as pit zip ventilation.

2. Harness hook opening. This is where the harness hook comes through the jacket allowing the harness to be worn underneath the jacket.

3. Back stretch panels: These waterproof breathable stretch panels (Ultra Stretch) allow for mobility as the rider extends their arms riding or jumping.

4. Hook Knife slot: This pocket is for a hook knife that is used in emergency situations where the kite needs to be cut loose and depowered.

5. Dual neck zip: The extra zipper allows for increased ventilation and access to interior pockets.

6. Back tightener: This pulls the back of the jacket tight so the front does not billow over the harness hook in front.

7. Multi tool sleeve pocket: This pocket is meant to hold a multi tool for adjusting bindings etc.

8. Hold down loops: These loops attach to the pants so that when the rider brings their hands over their head jumping the whole jacket and powder skirt does not ride up.

Stay tuned for 2004/2005 pictures......

Yo V,
Just checked em out and the center zipper looks silly. I know folks that ride with their harness through their riding jersey for looks but why through your winter jacket? I rode all last winter with the harness on the outside.
Just curious
