CO, Rocky Mts
Second Baker helmet I have owned...it will please and protect your dome. Super warm and fits tight. I have not had to use it yet and hope I never have to.
-Super light; they fell like I am wearing lightweight hiking boot
-Super stiff; great for all-mt riding
-To top of ankle pinch zone; dual BOA tension laces takes care of that. One dial is for the bottom laces and the other for the top...infinite ability of adjustment! 6hrs of riding and no pain in my feet at all.
-Too Stiff; I will see with some hours logged in them. ( Only had one day logged, so far...)
- Very difficult to remove and reinsert liners for drying out.
- Hook and loop closure on the top of the tongue of some what annoying when putting the boot on. I find myself undoing the tongue multiple times before my foot gets in there.
- Toe cap has a clear smooth plastic band that protects the front of the boot gets nicked very easily and them become noticeable; I like to keep my gear clean...!
Bottom LIne: Comfortable, no ankle pinch, super light, and reasonably priced. *Minus the Ecto-cooler Green!
I bought a pair of these in 07-08 season. After three years of abuse they are still kicking, but they have wear and tear all over them and they are starting to smell like a locker room. So, I picked up a new pair from this season and im truely happy with the modifications that Dakine did. Zipper closure is huge and ofcourse they are GORETEX which is the main reason I love these short gloves so much. Durathane palms are super wear resistant. Shred, dude brah!!!!!!!!!!!!
No, unless you have a huge mitten that your are placing them into. I am in between a medium and a large. I go with a large in Dakine, because the medium is just to tight fitting but the large is just oversized enough to be roomy but not bulky for dexterity.
Just got my gloves in the mail and when I pulled them out I noticed that these were not really GORE - TEX.
They are GORE - WINDSTOPPER. Some what my fault for not paying attention. But BC should have not put TEX in the title description. They get a 4 star for being awesome and windproof, but got dinged a star for being water resistant oppose to waterproof.
Sweet ride...just needs a stiffer front spring.
This strap is more durable then was reported on the internet. However, I took a fall on my mountain bike and the watch took the brunt of the force. That is why I had to by a new starp.
the cat on the bottom of the sole means business.Seriously....glue...like glue.
I just got these yesterday and threw them on to my whip. first words out of my mouth were, "F***ing Sweet!" Also I didn't realize that they come with another set of plates and spiked pins....once again...Fing sweet! Unless your looking to drop dimes for Twenty6's or some other Ti flats; the 5050xx will do work without compromising your consumer morales. Cheers and go ride!!!
Thes gloves are perfect for every day commuting.
Nose wipes thumbs help on those cold days.
Will be getting a second pair when these finally pass to glove heaven.
They are warm weather gloves, but I have used them a couple times when I forgot my winter liners.
The case is smaller then it looks. Poker is too thick of diameter. Overall, poor design...not worth 20bucks...will be returning. The 3 P's work for me; Pill case, Paper clip, and Pocket.
Great alternative from the staigh values that usually come stock on Camelbaks. I cut the hose right below the stock valuse. Use a lighter or gas stove to heat the end lightly; warm the plastic I should say. Be careful not to allow the hose to touch the flame it will burn the plastic and you will have to start over. I usually just take a lighter and rotate the hose over the flame. Key is to place the valve on when the plastic is still warm. To quickly harden the plastic for a great seal; i submere it in a cup of ice water. Make the plastic harden around the valve.
I would suggest these and buying the cleaning kit that BC sells...I left a review that product page for other items to use to clean the bladders
I hate Camelbak bladder taste after sitting for a couple of days. I clean mine eveytime the inside of the bladder is slimmy. I also am very keen on the wire hose brush; that is where most mildew grows.I would suggest getting a pack of extra clean tabs...They work wonders but are cholrine and should be handled with care. Dish soap, cheap vodka, or non sugar based mouth washes also work well, but the Chlorine tabs still work the best...I destroyed one bladder in college using it for rum and cokes on the go...Wish this product was around then...haha
Oh and I paid 20buck for this so 15bucks is a steal!
This thing is awesome. Use it under my helmet and for commuting to work on cold fall days in Denver.
I love this pack so much. I would be devistated if something happened it...oh wait Osprey has one of the best warranties in the market. A clip for holding skis in a Aframe broke when i took a spill. I fill out a form on Osprey's website and they sent me a replacement part out in a week or two. Great service and support.
Oakely lenses are sweet and the G30 is every versital.
The wisdoms fit great on helmets
I use this as a rain coat/hiking coat because it is compactable. Side vents are needed...this thing gets warm.
I got the helmet last sept and could not wait to use it on the slopes. I us a underarmour winter balaclava under it. I thought it would be warm with no vents but keeps my head toasty.
Glad they came out with a EPS foam version.
Yes note if this is a hardhat; AKA like a construction hard hat...if you want more dome protection go with the Bern Baker EPS.
Oh, I have the Oakroom detail/color helmet...they are not oak leaves.
Great package deal. Tire levels are plastic, so be gentile.
