When I was younger (15 to be precise) and thought I was the coolest cat around I often asked myself: Now where did I put my beanie? Before hitting the slopes. Beanie? What was i thinking with? Oblivious and dumb. Two words that described a younger me perfectly. The fact that the beanie were often made of some useless fabric with no function what so ever didn’t make my case any stronger. A slightest hint of snow and beanie would go damp to heavy and eventually end up as cold and wet. Pointless. And I’ve been wandering around pondering as to why you’d often come home from a skit trip with phenumonia
Fortunately, the situation has changed. Today, I value safety and functionality far more than anything. And if you catch me wearing anything but a helmet when skiing is involved, I’m probably on my way back home. Or on my way to the after ski, perhaps helmets should be compulsory there too?
I’m not the only one who has matured though. The whole industry has grown and taken giant steps, if not leaps, towards the exterior values. Helmets have been starting to look good rendering them more as a piece of clothing more than just a safety precaution. And , sadly, I think that’s the biggest reason behind my sudden adult attitude towards helmets. For that I send my gratitude to POC. So, thank you POC. Sincerely
The helm belongs on the head and the beanie in the bag,
A pal of mine has also matured and purchased a helmet for himself.
