Best bet is to buy one and see how you get on. If you don't like it just send it back and I'll give you a refund.

John
I have both and have never used the SUM after I got the Gecko, so that speaks for its self and the Gecko has removable ear covers

I'm still working on a new deal, but it looks like they'll probably go up by about 10 - depends what the pound does against the dollar over the next few weeks. P&P will still be 3 for one item and 5 for two or more.

Latest is news is that they have discontinued the Hannibal, so I will probably keep the Total Eclipse in stock. I will be taking orders for any other designs though if people want to pre-book them for the next shipment.

Eric, I'll get a price for shipping to you and let you know!

John

Yes, I have a few Hannibal masks in stock. You can order one using the RIBnet shop.

Shipping is 10 - select "Exceptions" in the shipping section. You can pay using a credit card via Paypal.

Hope that helps!

John

I forgot to post that last week I went out on a friends fishing boat and tried out the SUM with different lenses. Turned out to be a good day to try as we went from fog to very blinding sunlight to a very early dark due to the fog coming back.

I'm not sure of the names of the lenses so will give them names and I'm sure John or anyone else who knows better can inform.

The lightly smoked lens was the best all rounder for the day.
When the fog was down at midday the sun was hitting it giving a very harsh light. I found the yellow lenses to be the best for this as it still gave good visibility (for what you could see in the pea souper) wail also taking a good edge of that migraine inducing light. Only thing to watch with these is that your brain can turn Nav lights into a few different colours, rather like the white balance on a digital camera.
When the fog lifted and the sun came belting through, reflecting off the mirror like water the very dark lenses got snapped on. This was great and allowed me to jockey the boat with out any eye strain.
When the light faded I switched back to the lightly smoked but in the end had to take the mask off. At this point a totaly clear lens would have been good. Although after getting home I realised the yellow may have worked better.

The lenses take a second to change as long as you have them handy.

I've not had chance to test the SUM in wind, rain or waves yet but going off what has already been said on this thread I have no worries. I also bought one of THESE to wear with it. Still waiting to test that out too. But I think Nos is trying that kind of gear out on his bike.

So, how many of you have gotten in trouble recently wearing a Hannibal mask, being stopped by the police because they thought you were an axe-murderer?

The Hannibal design is one of the more subtle variations. The well dressed axe-murderer is far more likely to be seen sporting one of the more radical designs.

I'm guessing that buying one of those and charging towards a Navy warship would probably not be a good idea
