Adam Nadir's Bio

Ex-Military, done different things in life and mostly within the realms of medicine and patient-care. US Military tought me everything that I Know ranging between: survival, gear accountability, Combat packing parameters, ruck-sacking, food stow and utility usage, natural elements and how to fight it between deserts and Oceans. I love science and I love outdoors, and together they make an adventure defenitely worth taking-on. Love technical specs and product details. It used to be in this great country of ours, you saw "Made In America" and you sigh in relief. Let's just say that things have "changed" a bit in recent times. But, as you all know that prices continue to go up, so it behooves us all to be even more honest and upfront to the next fella in offering advise and product evaluation. I appreciate the good stuff and remain loyal, and I also slam what tests out to be a bad choice-in realistic expectations. After all a buck spent nowadays is even harder to come by for many of us.

Cheers!!!!! And, Keep pushing the limits!

Love this helmet. They all come in polycarbon fiber-glass material...price can be a couple of hundred. So, how do you decide? The distinction is the "fit"...which you feel not necessarily measure. Off course, the head circumference matters, but if you have ever worn a military issued KEVLAR helmet you know it. You gotta get that perfect calming snug-n-tuck comfortable feel, with this helmet curvitures you have it. There is adjustable quality straps, buckled clips for headlamp, and back side covering the entire basal skull. If you are on the rocks, boulder, climbing, hiking, heck surfing...this will do just fine. It's light weight and feels like a solid hard steel hat. I easily reckon a decent pendular or direct force impact to the head would get absorbed qualitatively by the ridges inside this helmet, good fixed padding, would reduce the force before it shifts to the skull. The back side has curved bulging out border, which would reduce any stress impact towards the cervical and thoracic alignments. It's made in Finland. I have the Pitzl headlamp attached to it, it fits like a Hawaian charm...perfectly! Buy it.

Off course its a beauty to look at, with good neon bright color selections. However, basically, it's thin sheet of plastic lining sewn inside a VERY soft Nylon over-shell, in China. So the price you would pay is for Marmot name, which has plenty competition. So shop around and get yourself a bargain. If you want to spend nearly $100 save-up and add another $50-$75 and upgrade to a basic GoreteX jacket right here at BackCountry, there's plenty selection avialable here. The GoreTex will take you through rainy days plus offer some insulation. This Jacket is an H2O repelent but offers ZERO insulation, and YES the best place on Earth to test out any H2O repelent material is Pacific NothWest, particular my home state of Oregon. Sorry but an overpriced two-stars for me.
