PLINKOwrote a question about Salomon Q-105 Ski on December 30, 2013
Why's the weight of this one listed in grams while the B1 Extendable is listed in ounces? Can we have some consistency please? And 595 g works out to 21 ounces, which is the listed weight for the Extendable. They don't weigh the same.
Purchased the DAKINE Baker in Charcoal from BC.com. The greenish-yellow trim on the shoulder straps that's shown here on the website is not what I got. Actual shoulder detail of the shoulder straps is boring gray. What gives?
BEWARE OF FUNKY SIZING!
I want to echo Cory's comments above. I'm 6'1, 175 and wear a Large in everything else. Purchased a Large, but the fit was odd. Tight around the back of the shoulders, very short in the arms, big in the body. Upsized to an XL, and it was huge, and the proportions were still off. As much as I love Mtn Hardwear's current line up of Dry-Q offerings, the sizing is off. This applies specifically to the Drystein, Jovian, Kepler, Snowpocalypse, and Snowtastic, to name a few. I'm perplexed as to why Mountain Hardware missed the mark by so much this year.
This is my first helmet and I love it. I really wanted a helmet that didn't look like a boy helmet and at the same time didn't look like a little girls helmet. This helmet fit the bill. I also love the plush lining. It is soft against your skin and helps keep your head warm. With all the vents closed I did get warm skinning up the hill and it was very easy to remove some of the vent covers before continuing onward. I would recommend this helmet to anyone who wants something more basic but with a few little extras.
