At first glance, it’s identical to the original; in a side-by-side comparison, there are subtle differences. The CG-approved version is about 2 inches taller than the original and slightly thicker, especially in the front. Comparing a four-year-old original size large to a new, CG-approved size large, the front of the new version measures around about a half-inch thicker than the original. Beyond that, the new version contains all the features of the old—front pocket, a rubber strip on the inside of the lower section to help prevent it from riding up, tapered top edges to prevent snagging the boom or sheets, zipper side entry, adjustable waist buckle and an absence of buckles on the neoprene shoulder straps. Currently available in black and cyan blue, with a red version available sometime next year.
