    Yea, the helmet is also a hat and ear muffs for the most part. Breathes well, keep your warm, and keeps you safe. As Scifrog says, no downside.

    Whoopsy:

    Does that means on ski trips she pack 3 helmets? 

    Yes. Smiley Three helmets, five ski outfits (for a week vacation) and I don't mean apres ski stuff which fills another luggage piece. Smiley Not to forget the (at least) ten pairs of shoes for a week (which include at least three pairs of Nike).

    For our next trip to Florida, we have five large suitcases, each at 23 kg with us.

    Think again... The 4 of us plus the nanny and the luggages don't fit in a Suburban... not even close... And that's for beach weather, not skiing... Granted it is for almost 3 weeks though.

    Got it, makes sense. 

    Like I said, we need for 10 days at the beach five large suitcases for us four and usually buy some clothing during our stay (not much though, only if we really like something because the US is more expensive than Europe now when it comes to high quality stuff).

    I'd suggest either wearing your clothes more than once, or washing. My month long tropical suitcase is as follows:

    1-2 pairs of shorts
    2 pairs of jeans
    10-15 t-shirts in various colors
    15 pairs of boxers
    5 pairs of socks
    1 swim suits
    1 sandal
    1 sneaker

    So I gotta ask, what the hell ya'll packing? All your own dishes and cutlery? Personal toilet seats? Bedding? Packing light is so much nicer than packing heavy. I really recommend getting some packing cubes trying it one time.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    We always stay in the same place at the beach in Miami and we have a washing machine and a dryer in the condo. My wife is basically washing/drying every single day and she still needs three suitcases for her stuff. The other two suitcases are for me and the two kids. indecision I have to admit however that my wife is one of the most diligent women I ever met, even during our vacations, so... 

    OK...maybe we should stop with this topic in the 918 thread... Smiley

    To get this thread BACK ON TOPIC...broken heart We WERE talking about SKI helmets!Smiley

    After all the helmet talk I took at look at that MIPS technology and bought myself a new POC Fornix Backcountry helmet with MIPS. We're skiing over the holidays and besides being safer, it's amazing how much lighter the POC is than my 3/4 year old Giro. 

    Oh and two weeks away, two very large ski bags for the four of us (but hold our boots as well), six pairs of skiis, one large bag for the boys clothes, one large bag for my wife's clothes and a medium large one for mine. And two cases of wine ;)

    Smiley I have to disappoint you...not quite this style. Smiley

    More like some sort of Guayabera style in different variations. I also love wearing Armani shirts with short sleeves (in XL because otherwise they don't fit me around the shoulders, I'm no Hipster Smiley).

    I can certainly fit everything inside a 918!

    But then the 918 will needed to be shipped off to where I am going. Basically pack everything in the 918 then pack the 918 inside a transport Smiley

    Depending on how you travel (and it seems some of you spend some serious moola on flights,) you might as well just overnight all your luggage to the destination for a few hundred dollars, no?


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Polos and short sleeve shirts, sometimes untucked ala RC wink


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Mind if I go on topic about some 918 stuff? 

    IMG_2303.JPG

    Something you don't see everyday. Spark plug from the 918. I have small hands btw.

    My car had it's 2nd annual service last month, changing all the spark plugs is part of the intermediate service requirement.

    Porsche spec-ed a special thin thin wall socket for changing the spark plugs, the clearance is so tight, the socket has to be de-blurred in order for it not to get stuck in the hole.

    Gotta love it, each time we break new boundaries at RT, from 918 news we have gone to "do you tuck or untuck?"
