Patagonia PowSlayer Bibs

These bibs really are the top of the line ski pants out there.  Recycled Gore-Tex Pro Shell make these even more breathable than the Powder Bowl line up.  Patagonia keeps it simple with the design here.  Just 3 pockets, including one for your avalanche beacon (should you go into side country).  MSRP $599

Sweet Protection Igniter MIPS Helmet

MIPS is a safety system that helps keep your brain safer during impact.  It will not keep you from doing stupid stuff, but it is a nice safeguard.  The Igniter is lightweight and fits all the goggles we tried with it (a lot of goggles).  Plenty of venting options and good looks round out the deal. MSRP $239

Bolle Tzar Goggle

Photochromatic lenses are always my favorite.  They adjust to the natural light and allow the user more range with just one lens.  The Bolle Tzar do an excellent job of fitting well and looking good.  MSRP $109

ZEAL Portal Goggle

ZEAL is a Colorado local brand, so we always love that.  What we really love is how easy it is to swap lenses out on the Portal goggles.  The view is extraordinary as well. MSRP $270

The truth is, I love bibs.  They keep snow out of the nether regions.  The TREWth are a rugged bib with mechanical stretch.  Resort and backcountry friendly.  These will keep you dry in all conditions and have plenty of pockets for all your accessories.  MSRP $420

Kulkea Thermal Trekker – Heated Boot Bag

Boot bags are great for traveling with your ski and snowboard boots.  Kulkea added an awesome feature to the Trekker – heat. That is right, this boot bag is also a boot heater.  The build quality is great, the zippers are smooth as butter and the helmet storage and pockets hold everything you will need for a day on the slopes.  Through in the ability to heat your boots up on the way to the mountains. MSRP $239

Gordini Camber Glove

Goatskin leather, Megaloft insulation, and a waterproof insert keep your hands dry and comfortable while skiing and snowboarding.  I found the Ergoknit backer was good at dumping heat on warmer days.  No need to add snow seal either, the waterproof insert takes care of that for you!  MSRP $80

Spyder Eiger Shell Jacket

Spyder used the knowledge of ski legend Chris Davenport to dial up the Eiger jacket.  Featuring 3L Gore-Tex Pro Shell and a functional design, this ski jacket performs even better than it looks.  Spyder has a reputation of being a high-end ski clothing company, and the Eiger is the pinnacle of the ski jackets they offer.  Featuring waterproof zippers, thoughtful pocket placement, and powder skirt.  Plus a few nice logo hits throughout the jacket.  MSRP $600
