Your holiday gift guide for outdoor fun

 | December 14, 2012
A dear gift to find under the tree, these state of the art Smith I/O goggles do just about
everything wearable technology can. They could be yours for $650!

We’ve all done it at some stage in our life (if not every year)—that last minute mad dash for presents, with no idea of what to buy for our loved ones. With plenty of time before Old Nick jumps into his sleigh, SPIN has some holiday gift ideas to make your shopping a little easier:

Smith I/O goggle series 
These goggles are something else. The I/O have the innovative snap in, snap out lenses, while the I/O Recon gives real time data right in front of your eyes including speed, altitude, GPS mapping, jump analytics and vertical. They also connect to your smartphone.

Skullcandy Cassette headphones 
Want to tear up the slopes listening to your favorite tunes in supreme sound? Modelled by boarding superstar Danny Kass, the Cassette has removable speakers and a collapsible band for less bulk and better performance.

Icebreaker Merino 
You want warm? This is warm. Made from 100 per cent Merino wool, Icebreaker is sure to keep you toasty whether you’re on the slopes, hiking, running or travelling. Not only do they do base layers but underwear, shorts, pants, dresses, hoodies, sweaters, jackets, gloves, socks and headwear.

Asics Gel-Fuji Trabuco GTX Mens
Avoid winter hibernation with the Asics Gel-Fuji Trabuco GTX Mens. These are a high tech winter running shoe that, with the help of Goretex, will keep your feet dry. It also includes a Wet Grip outersole to get you through anything.

Heat Factory Hand and Toe Warmers
This stocking-stuffer’s a lifesaver for those extra cold days on the slopes. These little packages of warmth will fit inside a glove or boot. To release the heat all you have to do is open them. They last up to 12 hours and can be turned on and off.
