Zipper conventions?

So, I just picked up a jacket from REI that I had ordered when it was their Deal of the Day for $25. I tried it on in the store, and was surprised the zipper was on the left.

Sugoi's a Canadian company, and the last comment in this forum suggests that European's standardized on left-handed zippers universally.

Anyone know if the US is just behind? Not a huge deal, but it does take me a second to zip it up as I have to contradict nearly 30 years of muscle memory . . .

Edit: This thread on Yelp has more information . . .
