OKAY!---I'm old! Just got fitted with two Beltone aids---can hear others now, but worry about them flying out when the Triton is flat out-
Any experiences or advice?

You can buy hearing aid retainers called OTOCLIP from Amazon they are like glasses retainers. Personally, I take my hearing aids out when fishing.

This is exactly what I was thinking. They're also good for over the nose to cut down on how much dust/pollen ends up in your respiratory system as well, so an added benefit.

I take them out when fishing also. Wind noise and hearing aids are not a good combination. Most brands are a lot more water resistance than they use to be but getting them too wet can lead to an expensive trip.

I bought my dad some of the shooting ear muffs to wear while we are running. Work perfect and eliminates the wind noise.

Yes, the only way to fly. I recently started keeping one around my neck, I can't tell you how many pair of glasses I've lost in my boat. Also don't have to turn my hat backwards or take it off.

I have, make that had, (one went thru the wash machine then 2 weeks later I laid the other one down and forgot where )the kind that fit behind the ear with what looks like fishing line that goes into the ear and every time I took off my sunglasses they'd come off too and most of the time I wouldn't know it so I never wear (wore) mine in the boat. Gotta get some more SO PEOPLE DON"T HAVE TO YELL AT ME AND REPEAT THEMSELVES hammer

Huh? haha! I need to go get them, or so I've been told (I think?). I've gotten to where the wind noise running bothers me, so I've started keeping a set of the little foam hearing protectors that are on a plastic loop on my steering column. I put them in when I run. I may not hear my motor coming apart, or my partner trying to tell me to 'slow down under the bridge' but maybe it will save some of the hearing I have left. Wish I'd have done it sooner. Also wish I had done it duck hunting, shooting that dang 7 mag., the .45 ACP, in the 55 Chevy....

Wearing the buff is a good idea
