Seth Wescott, World Champion Snowboarder: My partnership with L.L.Bean was just a great opportunity to start from the ground up with a highly energetic, focused design group. When you go into the field, you need to not have anything that you're using, as far as your gear, be a hindrance. How are your wrist closures? How's your powder skirt working? How are your gaiters working? Where's the venting you need? It's been a fun year and half so far.
