How do they look good besides having a stupid gimmick? This is your first post? SHILL. Especially since it has 119 views, you just happened to stumble across this? it looks like a bad design. It looks like they just basically did the same shit Rome does with the 390 but instead of minimizing the moving parts (rubber band on the strap to keep it open) they created a moving base..which seems incredibly likely to get frozen in inclimate weather. As we all know ice tends to accumulate around the base plate.
Relax man. So what if it's my first post? I'm not in any way affiliated with that company. I just happened to see the video on youtube and noticed that no one has posted anything about it. Now that you mentioned it, I agree...it would probably accumulate snow and ice around the base. I just thought it was cool how the straps are out of your way before stepping into them. Let's just all calm down and be happy that companies are experimenting and trying things out to improve equipment for all of us.
So it's base OR insulation? Or it replaces both. Now I'm going to read more on this.
Base in my case. Homeschool use it for its breatheabilty in their outerwear which as far as I know are all shells. But they also make all their base layer pieces with it. You could probably email them for the specifics.
Maybe they will be good. Maybe not. But I just have this weird feeling that more concern was made about giving them the ability to help you strap up faster then was placed on them having good performance. Time will tell though
