Posty just delivered mine. Tried it on and my 17 month old son cried his eyes out. Hope it works when he's 16
Have to admit I had visions of the SUM being a flimsy and cheap plastic but this is a quality item. Very robust feel to it and very comfortable. Looks cool as well, even if it does look like your off to do a bank job. Tried it on with a ski mask (terrorist style) and it works a treat with that too for very cold days. Looking forward to giving it a try out on the blue.
Cheers for this John, great stuff
I wear headset/earplugs from my cellphone/radio and listen to the radio when ribbing without passengers. Its a lot of background wind noice when speeding, and I must have the volume on my cell far to high to hear the radio. I tried Geckos, but they create a lot of wind noice itselves. Is the facemask a better option if I want less wind noice?
having not tried it I can't really help but from the look of the way the mask is shaped I'd say it would divert the flow of the wind OK. I expect the wind noise from the gecko is when the air enters the front of the lid? Your not going to get that with a SUM but at least with the Gecko your ears are covered.
I'm sure someone who has used there's allot will be able to tell you more.
