bomber gear ever use MountainSurf's duro-ring rand?

Found a funny Standard Bomber Gear skirt with the same damn rand as that cult classic Mountain Surf Duro-ring randed skirt. tough as hell.

Any old guys and gals ever run into these? Were bomber and M.Surf doing work outta the same shop? thanks.

When those skirts were made bummer gear was a colorado company and mountain surf was in up state NY. Bummer most likely copied mountain surfs skirts

Bomber Gear

Bomber Gear was originally located in Durango, CO. Mountain Surf was located in Friendsville, MD at the take out for the Upper Yough. Mountain Surf moved up to the Ottawa River where it is today. John's staff went onto form Skirtworks skirts out of the Friendsville location until they had to shut down to to health problems. While Bomber Gear did offer a round rand it was not the same rubber compound used by Mountain Surf. Believe it or not it was softer than the Mountain Surf skirts. Now Mountain Surf did make a "Bomb Fit" level of skirt for people worried about imploding on larger drops and folks who weren't afraid to ask others to help them put on the skirts for them.
