Thank you Erin F: Re: OR # 2- Outdoor Earbags Fleece
- 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 Erin,
Thanks for the Owner Review, I shall be your editor for this one. Thanks for putting the HTML version up right away. Here are your edits. After going through them please repost here and put a corrected HTML version in the test folder. (Delete the old one first.)
By the way it is nice to see that Arizona has another tall hiker gal. Our hard working Owner Review queue manager Jamie D is south of you.
***Earbags - Outdoor Earbags Fleece Dark Color
EDIT: the title should just be Earbags, Outdoor Earbags
EDIT: need the Imperial conversion and please put a space before the "g" (14 g)
***MSRP: Not listed
EDIT: from what I see they sell the Earbags themselves and list them as 12,50 I see they do not sell to the US though.
*** The warmers themselves are black and made of Fleece.
EDIT: fleece (no cap)
The Earbags logo can be seen on the inside of the earbag's white colored Fleece.
EDIT: fleece (no cap) but the second Earbag does need one
***They are an oval shape, contoured just right for an ear,
EDIT: let's play it safe and say that it is "just right for my ear" to avoid projection.
Duration of Trip: 3 separate 9 day backpack
EDIT: I think this should be "3 separate 9-day backpacking trips" even better would be "Three 9-day backpacking trips"
*** during my backcountry ranger duties
Comment: my hat's off to you, thank you for your work
***The Earbags are so lightweight that it is easy to forget you are wearing them at times.
EDIT: you need to keep the review in the first person. Please change "you are" to "I am"
***This can be both a positive and a negative; positive in that they are almost unnoticeable yet still keep you warm, and negative in that you forget you have them on, and may inadvertently knock them off putting a pack on or messing with your hair.
EDIT: same thing here.
