It still surprises me that the majority of the comments on the thread are in the uncool camp, yet the vote is so heavily in favour of cool?

Oh and I forgot to mention, I'm from the South and I've never rated Kooka - it does look good, but it's expensive and it breaks. To my mind that is uncool


that's because the people voting it cool, do so in shame :P

uncool for me, thanks; though the colors were always pretty.

Please. Most folks who started off with Exage are the ones who think Kooka is a good idea. :roll:

I always thought Kooka tried too hard. Ringle, Paul, Pace, Yeti, Coco Chanel, Wicked did it (seemingly) effortlessly. Kooka well they are just too much. Sort of all the gear no idea school of thought; a we're going to be cooler than cool, hipper than hip and it is all too formulaic, and just doesn't work. Kooka is well sort of Burberry.

Tres uncool

But the Coolwall is fundamentally flawed - Ettos might not be cool now, but they were very very cool then!

BITD way too fragile and expensive. For retro: sub-zero!
