GEAR REVIEW: G-Form Kneepads and Extreme Sleeve Laptop Case
Words and photos by Sean Zimmerman-Wall
Venturing around the world, it is commonplace for us to encounter inhospitable environments. Protecting our bodies and our electronics from the elements is critical to our success and longevity, and we don’t trust them to just anyone. Enter G-Form. Innovation remains at the forefront of their corporate philosophy and they continue to deliver solutions for the myriad challenges we often face.
The Reactive Protection Technology (RPT) found in every item, utilizes state-of-the-art Poron XRD foam and a proprietary blend of materials to offer unsurpassed protection. Their Kneepad provides total coverage for this vital joint and the pad remains supple during activity. However, upon impact, the RPT kicks in and absorbs the energy. The ergonomically designed pads move with you and are stitched to a washable compression fabric. Simply slide the pads on directly over the skin, or over a base layer, and forget about it. You can rest assured that these won’t slip around like hard-shell pads, and they never loose their impact resistance, even after repeated abuse. From the slopes of Snowbird, to the peaks of Patagonia, we trust these pads to keep us injury free.
While traveling from location to location, our electronics have to endure quite the beating. Having access to the Extreme Sleeve Laptop Case gives us added piece of mind that our equipment will be protected. It incorporates the same RPT materials as the kneepad, and keeps our laptops safe and secure. The form-fitting sleeve stands up to damaging impacts that could crack the screen or damage the casing. We feel confident chucking our computers into a pack before a long haul, and know that they will come out ok upon arrival.
