Number Five - In at number five we have the Columbia Snuggly Bunny, it’s perfect for the little one in your life! The Snuggly Bunny has an Omni-shield shell which gives water resistance and protects from stains; it dries fast without holding moisture and most importantly stays nice and light weight even when wet. The Snuggly Bunny has a front diagonal zip making it easier to get on and off, reflective detail on the front for added safety and to top it off it has a fleece lined upper so whoever is wearing it will stay nice and warm!
Number Four - At number four we have the awesome Salomon Men’s Brilliant Jacket, it’s perfect for the skier and snowboarder in your life. It has an advanced skin shell which maintains body warmth and regulates your core body temperature. The jacket features a brilliant air vent system with mesh backing, which works perfectly with the advanced skin, keeping your core body temperature correct, as well as keeping you nice and dry. It features a removable 3D hood, moisture wicking 3D stretch lining, a snap in connection so you can attach the jacket to your ski pant, a trusty goggle wipe and a goggle mesh pocket. Lastly the jacket's Union Blue is an amazing colour so you shouldn't have any worries about not being seen on the slopes!
Number Three - At number three we have the Roxy Women’s Quinn Jacket, This is a great classic design jacket from Roxy. The jacket uses Roxy’s Dry Flight waterproofing technology so no matter where you are skiing it will keep you nice and dry. Working with the Dry Flight you also have a great thermal lining within the jacket, this keeps you nice and warm but also wicks away moisture if you are getting too hot to keep your body at core temperature. The hood is removable and so is the fur on the front of the hood, you have tons of pockets for all types of storage as well as a very handy media pocket! The jacket has a tailored fit so it looks nice and sleek but still gives plenty of room for layering.
Number Two - In second place we have the Burton Tinder Pack. This pack is perfect whether you are on the mountains snowboarding or just hitting the city! With its 25 litre capacity you have tons of space to play with! The pack is covered in RipStop material so you really can put it through its paces! The classic design of this pack will make you stand out of the crowd on and off the slopes, it also has a really nice fit to it so when it’s on your back it will be nice and comfortable. And lastly there is a hidden side zip which allows access to a laptop or tablet compartment. This pack has got you covered whatever you will be doing.
Number One - In at number one we have the amazing Anon M2. This goggle has it all, to start with when you take it out, the box it is stored in is a great hardwearing case, which in itself is a nice bit of kit. When you open it up you see the spare lens you get with the goggle (Category 2 blue Lagoon lens) and then the awesome Red Solex lens (Category 1 Red Solex lens) is just in your face! Just in the look itself you can see you really get what you pay for. Then you get to the best bit, the Magna-Tech lens. The goggle uses 16 rare earth magnets which gives eight points of connection to the goggle frame which has a total retention of 19.15Ib so no matter what the lens will not separate from the frame. But that’s not even the coolest part, the lens themselves are ridiculously quick to change even with a pair of gloves on! In a matter of seconds you can change the lens giving you better vision on the slopes.
