Did you have a "Klimcident"?

Mine have held up well since 2009. I bought a pair of Bajas this year and I was definitely less impressed with the construction/protection of them (kinda wimpy mesh), but they sure do vent well.

Maybe the secret is to never wash them. Mine have seen the inside of a laundry room an average of 0.67 times per year. If I hadn't recently washed them I'd posit the only thing keeping them together is the dirt.

I know it's a few more miles, but most speak highly of their visits to Revzilla in Philly...big showroom.

I'll second Revzilla; great people, and the ABSOLUTE BEST selection of gear I've seen in one place! Well worth the trip, even though your wallet might disagree!
