As holiday season rapidly approaches, you might be wondering what to buy for that very special skier in your life. After all, one can only have so many ski sweaters and pairs of gloves.
Certain types of skiers not only like to go downhill real fast; they like to get their geek on while doing it. It`s not enough to simply ski a gnarly run. They want visual proof of their accomplishments.
These gifts will put an ear to ear grin on their faces.
Zeal Optics, in collaboration with Recon Instruments, revolutionized the ski industry withe Transcend Ski Goggles. As the first ski googles to feature an integrated GPS system, they help skiers accurately and efficiently navigate the slopes.
A display on the inside of the frame shows stats such as altitude, speed, and location. Even better, when you return to the lodge, you can download the data via USB, and post your bragging rights on Facebook.
As if developing a GPS Goggle was not enough, Zeal Optics outdid themselves with their camera goggle. This clever device combines eye protection with videography, by integrating a 1080p action cam right between the eyes. It comes with a built-in viewfinder for previewing shots, takes 8-megapixel photos and captures sound, so watch your language!
Of course, buying goggles for a friend poses a significant sizing problem, if you plan to surprise your friend with the gift. If you want to stay with the camera type option, consider a helmet cam as an alternative.
The Hot Gear Bag
