How can I get a us adapter without using the cigarette lighter?
I tried calling, tweeting and emailing brunton with no response.t hey really suck at customer service.
I had a lot of trouble getting this to work. First the small screw on the back wouldnt hold the batteries in, and second the enrollment process was a nightmare. I thought it was registered and then it didn't send a signal. So I tried to re-enroll it and it said it was already enrolled. I may try again because I like the idea of what it can do when I am way out of touch, but I'm not sure it will be another spot attempt.
Do these zip all the way up the side leg for getting on/off over boots & crampons?
I'm a former rower and still rock climb/lift so at 210 pounds and 6'3" I thought XL would be good, but it's honestly one size too small. Everything else is pretty good, expect for the fact it's kind of tough to fill while it's inside the vest. You have to hold on to the round screw top to pour water in - they could make that easier.
Shave those things to just the right fit, this does it every bit.
I put these on my new DPS Lotus 120s. Many people warned me about dynafits on fat skis, but at 215 pounds and a very aggressive off-piste skier I've put these through the ringer with nothing but good experience. They are light elegant in design and well made. I'll get another pair for my next set of skis.
But these socks earned it. Great price for an awesome sock I put a ton of runs on and they still look new, I tour in them, Tele and mad on and off piste and they take whatever I give them. Snug compressed fit don't sag either.
Rally disappointed in the durability (or lack the of) from Underarmour ski socks. I have tons of other pairs from smartwool to ski-only manufacturers. I've never worn through in the big toes so quickly.
I bought these to test out for some very cold weather biking (Iditarod) and have been wearing them around the Alps for ski touring and biking. They are a bit funky to put on, but they feel normal once you've got them on. Nice wicking. I'll let you know how they wear in a few weeks.
This stuff is like habanero for your Hammies. It's strong enough to turn my pale Irish legs white and get the blood flowing. I've used it from Chamonix to Leadville and it has helped warm my knees ankles and legs up like you read about?
My wife is 5'10" and 130 with pretty muscular butt/hips like most bikers/skiers- should I go with a size large?
I got a closeout deal on these - 50% off so it makes me feel better that they are a bit of a pain in the ass to put on. They have textured heel cups so puling them off isn't too bad if your hands aren't too wet. They feel a bit sloppy inside, but perhaps that's because I'm used to being able to crank down my MTB shoes and road shoes with ratchets. This has a single pull and cord lock and it's only OK. So far they have kept me dry and pretty warm so I can't complain.
Such a shame to make a nice watch and overlook a detail like a strong band and attachment. I had this watch for less than a year and was mountain biking in the French Alpes - hard uphill, checked my altitude at the top of the climb and then bombed back down to Chamonix. Went to check the time- no watch. That really sucked.
If you are marketing a product for rugged backcountry use, climbing, biking, skiing, etc make a complete product, don't stop 7/8 of the way to the finish line.
