well i guess there is nothing like dragging up year old threads nowadays......
1. This is directed to the resent posts, i understand you are trying to be cool/hip/hardcore saying to leave your phone in your truck, go against the crowd, i get that i really do. BUT i am sure that i am not the only one that has more than one reason for having my phone with me. Me as an example, i have a family. If i was on the mountains riding and god forbid something were to happen to my kid. If i wasn't on the first lift to the parking lot i would feel pretty shitti and guilty!
also to add to that, my iphone doubles as my music player, which means no phone no music. which is still a good day, but we all know about the relationship the brain has to music. Sometimes the perfect track makes a decent run a great run!
2. To actually add some insight to the conversation, there are all kinds of new products on the market this year, do a google search on it and you will find them. there are many ranges and styles. I am going to try out a pair from northface tomorrow will let you know
