Bad Examples: Sea to Summit

Friday, February 8th, 2013

I really like Sea to Summit. I own several of their drybags and a few other pieces of kayak gear. Their regional selector, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

Click the map, right?

Looking at this screenshot, you’d expect to just click your region, right? Nope. The map is just a background graphic. Instead you have to find the small, zero-contrast dropdown menu in the top right corner. To make things even better, it’s not even a proper dropdown. It’s a link that only opens on click, so you cannot access it without a mouse.
