announcement by Wild Country
Created to act as a cross-season all rounder the 360 is a reliable and fully featured model that will be at home on first forays out or on longer expeditions away. Built with safety in mind the 360's testing pedigree is its strength. Optimal shaping, optimal material use and top impact resistance - due to extra EPS foam protection – meaning great test results, including a best in class side impact result. However, this strength is not a sacrifice to weight or fit and the 360 remains a lightweight choice. Internally, it adjusts via a glove friendly 'dial-system', cinches and releases simply and sits comfortably on adjustable, cushioned EVA pads.
A safety conscious go anywhere, do anything, all rounder with a strong sense of style, an excellent fit and a price tag that protects the wallet; the 360 redefines polycarbonate performance.
