i'm afraid that if i buy da brim, i'll be wearing my helmet more than i want to.

and how could you do the steck-salathe? i'd finally have to take that off my list.

and really, locker, can't we get past the primary colors? if you could make it look like a oaxacan sombrero, i'd get a wee bit closer to popping the buck.

I've never understood how anyone could even wear a baseball cap under a helmet.
Aside from the extreme hassles it would pose in an OW or chimney just getting
slings off would have me cursing a blue streak, maybe even a blue butt plug streak!

Of course, I suppose one has to give it up to maintain such a commendable
fashion statement as the above so beautifully illustrates!

While Da Brim seems a bit excessive, I do think that a fold up visor attached to the helmet is much much better than a baseball cap under the helmet. It does look dorky though, but there isn't much I can do about that anyway.

Soon all the cool climbers will have them.

Helmets with visors are the wave of the future.

i would not only climb with someone wearing it but i'd wear it my own self. see where the brim of da brim meets the helmet? i'd plaster that with a ring of bright flower stickers and slap stick-on rhinestones in the center of every flower.

and when my partner wasn't looking i'd adorn DA BRIM on their helmet with stick-on rhinestones and flowers, too!!! BOOM. jealous?

I have this vision of the makes of Da Brim coming to this thread with a hurt and heartfelt defense of their product. It would even be a good troll for ambitious fisherman.

Maybe they need sponsored athletes to make it cool. Dean Potter could wear one with a chin strap and dispense with the Base Rig.

Ok maybe not enough brim for that but combined with a squirrel suit you'd have this whole other control surface for flying.

@mike m - no ridicule intended. Your serious response just seemed outside of the tone on the thread. Likewise Dolomite.

But since you've brought it up:

I've heard "squamous cell carcinoma" from the mouth of my dermatologist and I wear a hat in the sun alot. I'm on the annual checkup plan and a good friend of mine died from melanoma, so I kinda know how bad it is.

Unfortunately, from what the doctor says, much of the damage was done (for me) a long time ago. I wouldn't be surprised to hear alot of sad stories from posters on this site.

Do you know how much those guys charge to walk out on that silly thing?

That is a good question Ron, to actually walk on it cost 25 bucks. However, you have to pay 50 bucks to go on the reservation, so figure on 75 bucks.

I took my son who was about 4 at the time out there on the day it opened, It was a surreal experience. We were the first ones there after an all night drive. Total cluster-puck, the tribe was grabbing their 50 bucks in on place, then you would get on a bus and go to the skywalk where you had to pay another 25 to the developer, who is now embroiled in a fight with the tribe.

Not worth the trip, very lame. Looks nothing like the artists rendering, the steel structure is about 6 feet tall, and not that wide. you have to lay on the glass to get any sensation of the height. An Imax film is more exciting. When we did it there was 21 miles of washboard dirt road to negotiate, I hear that it might have been paved now.

Da Brim plays Jake to your helmet's Fatman. Da Brim without a helmet, however, is like Bear Grylls without video editing.

FACT: Da Brim is da most prevalent cause of skin cancer for those suffering male pattern baldness while lacking a true helmet-oriented sport. Says one Baldy McGriff of his crowning melanoma: "I thought I was covered! Da Brim made a victim of me!"

Da Brim is to be used wiff da caution. And Da Brim Rim Job Condom? Forgedaboutit! You going to get AIDS for days!

As an avid longboard cruiser I have been intrigued by the Kahuna Big Stick. Seems like they could be a multi-purpose tool with the following applications:

1 - push oneself around the neighborhood
2 - fend off the dogs that occasionally attack the innocent rider
3 - use in jousting games with other boarders
4 - splinting the odd broken leg after a serious spill

And they look much cooler than a broom handle...

That big stick is actually a really good idea. When I skateboard/longboard, I tend to go crazy with my need for speed and my right leg gets worn out too much when pushing off so frequently on long rides.

Did they really pull their ads or was Russ Trolling?

Oh the Humanity

First mistake, not using ubercool models in their ads, that would have slowed us down in mocking them

Sadly, such a thing is really pretty needed for folks wearing helmets. Maybe they need to produce a more petite brim for non-dorks

I'm having trouble resisting a Briming and fisting remark about wide cracks

Sometimes while wearing Da-Brim™® (professional or amateur model) I notice a bead of sweat. It's da sweat on da brow with da brim.

I turn to Da-Brim-Rag™® (or more correctish, Da Rag™®).



I will say only that if you're female, Da Rag™®, is a multi-use item suitable for all out-of-doors activities.

Why don't women favor Da Brim?




Women think they look manly with a metal helmet, and therefore do not want to wear a helmet, since they may want to catch the eye of a suitable groom while vrooming.

Sikh women claim religious sensitives prevent them from wearing helmets, as they can only wear turbans.

Note to self: Can you desing a turbo Da Brim?

I have climbed in clothing much worse "for wear" but then I was trying to project a vision of America: Kerouac and his toilet paper rants.

But this guy---was he given the tights for Xmas and did he then feel obliged to wear them? Nothing against tights or folk willing to be caught in them, it just seems that neon is perhaps more appropriate for the golf course or tennis court or on the field in Oakland Coliseum in the Finley era. Some one else's America entirely.

Yes, but it has been replaced by "Da Bill", in the all-American fashion, so it's all good. Be sure and keep it flat with all the labels on it, so everyone knows how "new and fresh" you are! (Plus, as climbers, more sun protection. WIN!)

I've been holding out on my Da Brim trip reports until I sort out my severe photo organizing and upload issues (which are not technically insurmountable problems, but other stuff has taken precedence for me).

So in the mean time, I'll give my quick review:
 Way more durable than chopping up broken straw hats and duct-taping to helmets, which was my previous preferred strategy. They survive taking the rack sling on and off over the head, getting smashed into a backpack, etc. This process usually makes the straw hat solution last only 2 trips, but no damage to Da Brim.
 On near vertical cracks like Reed's Direct, it can be distracting when leaning in to check a gear placement, shifting back and forth, etc. because the rim of Daa Brim bangs against the wall. But hey, make it smaller to solve this problem and then you don't have the sun protection any more. It could maybe be a little floppier to solve the problem, but then it would fall down in front of your eyes. So overall I think the design trade-offs are pretty good in this product.
 Easy to put on / take off as desired. With my duct-tape creations, it was on for the duration of the adventure until it wasn't, and then there was a big wad of duct tape waste to deal with. Now it can come on/off on a pitch-by-pitch or even mid-pitch basis
 You just can't beat the cool factor, the I'm-ahead-of-the-crowd panache, and the fashion vanguard status you enjoy as a wearer of Da Brim. Some of you may scoff, but you lack vision and a refined sense of style and personal protection. Just look at how cool MisterE is with it!

I must make a disclaimer. It is true I am a professional climber now. I am sponsored. I didn't tell the Da Brim dude when he gave it to me, but I was considering a purchase anyways when I ran out of busted old straw hats!

Some pictures of older solutions functionally inferior to Da Brim (albeit imbued with their own unique style):




No skull bashing protection here, but good sun solution with ventilation:

I went on my first multi-day rafting trip last week. I didn't know we had to wear helmets when we used their kayaks, and I totally wish I had Da Brim with me for that.

Da Brim should be mandatory for river rafting trips.

I'm still messed up on my picture uploading and trip report workflow, but I've used Da Brim a lot in the last year and feel dumb that I didn't get one sooner. I've forgotten to bring it on a few trips, and missed it a lot. It's become a standard fixture in my climbing rack. I really should get some pictures up here even if I don't get my regular trip report system back online.
