I've notified that the two are slightly different. They come in the same blue, grey, and pink colours (there's green in the U.S I think as well), but the design is a. It different. The American version is coloured on the bottom part that is attached to the tubing and also has half of the set coloured. The Canadian ones only have the snap in part coloured and the part that is actually attached to you is completely white. Obviously they both work the same but I was just curious if anyone knew why this is? Here are some examples.

Not sure why but what bugs me is that American websites usually are more interactive and have more information than Canadian sites do.

We don't have Inset II's - Just "insets" and "inset 30's". I also noticed when I ordered colored ones that only the snap in part was colored and the part attached was all white. I had been longing for a colored one and gave up my beloved 43 inches to get it then felt ripped off!
