Despite the fact that the magazine goes through multiple rounds of editing and fact checking, things occasionally slip through the cracks. We feel bad when that happens. Here are a few things we’ve screwed up this season. Found anything we need to feature here? Email email@example.com.
On page 35, The Phar North Hoody pictured is the EcoCycle Hoody, not the Nuclear Winter Hoody. It costs $50 and is made from 100-percent-recycled, American-made materials.
On page 104, the price of the Head Crest Brim helmet was incorrectly listed as $430. It’s actually $130.
None that we’re aware of…yet.
On page 34, we published the following sentence in the BCA Float 130 airbag pack summary: “Unlike airbag systems that deploy a wing on each side of the pack, BCA’s bag inflates behind your head and neck to offer extra protection in a slide.” There is no statistical evidence that shows that airbags which inflate behind your head and neck actually provide extra protection. We regret the misinformation. Additionally, some readers interpreted the sentence as a suggestion that the only brand using two separate, wing-type airbags—ABS—manufactures packs that are not as safe as those with single, head-and-shoulders-type airbags. The suggestion was wholly unintentional and we regret the imprecise wording.
On page 41, we listed Tag Along Tours as the guide service for the La Sals. Turns out they don’t guide trips there.
