(Keep 'em coming Alex)
- Well keep them coming Alex. ORs are an important part of BGT.
PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via the list or contact me directly.
Editors Team Director
- Hi Alex,
You get me yet again my friend. You know the drill by now. Please correct the following edits and REPOST here along with putting a corrected version in the test folder.
EDIT: your link is not clickable
***Listed weight: 2 oz (57 g)
EDIT: your price and listed weight does not match the manufacturer's. Please adjust them.
***Size / circumference: S-7
EDIT: if you want to list the circumference you need to state that it is inches, plus you need the metric conversion. Personally I would just leave it at the size.
***Available colors: Sapphire, Titanium, Black, Jungle, Thunderbird red
EDIT: these don't match either. Where did you get these specs?
*** The Polartec Thermal Pro fleece allows for this hat to be worn in extremely cold conditions, but not much else.
EDIT: You need to change this to say that you don't find it useful outside of extreme cold as others may certainly find it useful for other conditions. (I have one.) To tell the truth it would be better to just describe the hat here, and put the complaints in the Performance section.
***The beanie has two flaps that extend down to cover both ears completely.
EDIT: it doesn't really have flaps. It swoops down at the sides and around the back to provide coverage for the ears.
***and elevation from 7,000' (2,134 m) to 13,000 ' (3,962 m).
EDIT: 13,000' (you have a space before the `)
*** I don't think there is really any breathability at all despite what the manufacturer claims. I will start to sweat while sedentary in anything over 40 F (4 C).
Comment: I think you are confusing breathability with warmth. My down coat is highly breathable yet I will sweat right away at 40 F in it. Breathable just means that water "vapor" will transfer through it. Sweat can't get past the AirShield (which you don't mention in the description) which is the wind-proof membrane in the fleece.
***As far asa the wind stopping ability that the product claims,
EDIT: As far "as"
*** I fall in between two sizes, so its always a crap shoot
***The Mountain Hardwear Dome Perignon is a bad ass beanie
EDIT: bad-ass (although I would not use that word myself in a review)
*** I had no issues with getting cold in the sub freezing days
***3. Ear flaps are great as long as you don't mind looking like an elf.
Comment: I don't get it. Elf ears are pointed and you can't see your ears with this.
