Brings me back. Used to be most every drifter, whether floater or dirtgrub, came quipt in a classic Calson Wight helmet. Can't beat the all-around of a good ole round hardshell. But as the niches bloomed and the fashions slid toward the professional, you started seeing less and less basic bobs in the space. Whether or not every fresh kip actually needs industrial kit or otherwise, I reckon no one wants to be branded a tourist. Makes you a hard mark pretty much anywheres, but optics aside, this is as good or better than most when it comes to hard-working versatility in The Fringe and I ladle my respect on those not ashamed to favor function and good build quality.
