^^^^^^^^

Looks to me like his ankles are getting burnt...

I'm interested in whether or not DaBrim will fully deploy and slow the rate of decent while falling. I'm gonna buy one and test it.

Maybe it has a future on big walls-
(functional as a chute for base jumps, or perhaps
doubling as circular portaledge)

Would you actually ski, skate with, or chat-up anyone wearing Da Brim ®

Bear Grylls does not need Da Brim

I wonder if he has matching panties?

tr has the best answer.

Climbing is cool. Climbers are not.
At least I'm not ;-)
Skin cancer is not cool.

Da Brim is useless for climbing unless the front brim flips up. Talk about a pain in the neck!

Needs to have Matching Lycra pants



This hat costs $15 on Amazon.com btw. How much is Da Brim?

Anybody wanna fess to having one? Might be the ticket in a practical way if it flexed when it hit the rock. I wear knee pads so I'm obviously not proud

But I confess to not wearing a helmet so it's moot. Brains are overrated

Z-brown why ridicule what I said when this device seems to be a great way to keep the sun off your neck and face which is constantly exposed when climbing and does so without getting in the way of what you are climbing. We are making fun of something that does just that probably better the strongest sun block.

i would wear da sh*t out of da brim!!!

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 <3 t*r.

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.

I don't give crap about cool. I'm a two-time melanoma survivor and will wear whatever doesn't get in the way.

@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.

If my waist were skinnier, I would wear Da Brim like a flare skirt.
