    Default Helmet Bag

    Hi,

    This may be the dumbest post on this forum; but, I'm stumped.

    I purchased a Miller helmet last spring. (I believe it was an Elite model.)

    It came with a bag. And that bag confuses the heck out of me with all the excess cord and the way it opens.

    Is there some common sense way to use the bag?

    Thanks

    Jeff

    If its the same bag I have, it's just a cinch bag. To open you pull out the hole and it opens the bag. To close it you grab the two ropes on each side and pull it closed. Not sure if it is the same one but it sounded like it.

    Here's a posting from the weldingweb on that same topic. You are not the only one.

    Default Glad It's Not Just Me

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the posts.

    BD1, thanks for the link, too. I feel better after reading it. Besides helping me understand that I am not the "only one" trying to see the logic in the bag, it made me chuckle a little, too.

    I have used the bag a few times... the thing that bugs me is that there doesn't seem to be a right, or a wrong way to place the helmet inside the bag. I've tried it right side up, upside down, across the seam, with the seam... there just didn't seem to be a place that it really fit.

    I looked for information in the manual, too, like a poster on the other thread mentioned. I figured there must be something somewhere that would at least give a basic description of how it should be used (e.g. lens side of helmet face up with the helmet laying in the direction of the bottom seam).

    I think I would need to be a lot better shape if I intended to start wearing that bad as a backpack. To me, that would seem like an invitation for an a**-kicking; but, I could be wrong.

    I love the helmet. It was more costly than I thought was practical; but, in hindsight, I am really glad that I spent the extra dollars on it. Great purchase.

    Thanks again for the replies.

    Jeff

    LOL...I also appreciate this thread, I agree it's a confusing cinch. Took me more time then I thought or would care to expose to get the hang of it! Lol. And it IS a great helmet. Made the leap on the recommendation of JMK Welding,another forum member. The test drive sold me!

    My Dirtbike helmet bag sounds similar to your description. I really like things to have a specific way they work, not just toss it in. But I came to the fact it's just a dang bag and moved on, but every time I use it I still briefly spin the helmet around a couple times trying to find the "right" way. Haha. It's a curse.

    Default Helmet Bag

    I have one for my bike helmet as well. Got all torqued up tryin to fit it in there correctly(not a correct way, just cram it in there). Gave it to my so to use and all the boys in the drop off line in the morn have a lil sequence that they do. Throw on main pack then Sling the lil crappy pack over their head till it slams the main pack. They all do it, every morning. Guess its the"cool" thing to do. Good riddance I say.
