On SkiDiva this topic came up and one of the women posted that, as a nurse, she sees a lot of rib injuries from cell phone pocket placement. I know I'm going to be more careful about where I put my cell phone.
This is a great thread for us "non-veterans" (I can't bring myself to use the G-word). Dumb question: Someone mentioned ski locks -- what are these? More specifically, do y'all lock your skis when going into the expensive-but-bad-food slopeside cafeteria for lunch? I thought there was some kind of code that skiers don't rip off other skiers' skis. (yes, I know, the G-word comes to mind again....)
I'm going to start locking my ski's at certain ski area's. Leaving 1200 worth of ski/bindings sitting in the open is to risky in this economic situation.
Call me a gaper if you want, but there are some essentials that go in the pocket(s) of my vest/jacket every time I go out on the slopes. What goes in my pocket can change depending on where I'm skiing. For instance, I'll have sunscreen when I'm in Colorado, but its totally unnecessary in Michigan.
When I buy a jacket/vest, the number of pockets and pocket placement has always been high on my list of priorities, for things such as..........
My normal Pocket stash:
small nail file
pocket wax packet
Zip Lock with an small assortment of bandaids
peanut butter granola bar
Sunscreen(when in Colorado)
* MR TC always has a stash of snickers snackers in his pocket
How vital is pocket placement to you and what kinds of things do you stash in your pockets?
