2022 Winter Sports Gift Guide

When the first sign of fresh powder hits, the snow lover in your life is ready to shred! This winter, don’t let them hit the slopes without the right equipment. We put together a list of our favorite winter gear so you can spend less time shopping and more time on the mountain. We have gifts to keep you safe, hydrated, and cozy in frigid temperatures. Whether gifting to snowboarders, backcountry skiers, winter hikers, or fans of ‘Après All Day’, we have something for every snow enthusiast!

Soft Water Bottle

Stow Bottle

Leaving the slopes for a water break is no fun, but being dehydrated is much worse. Not only does our flexible Stow bottle fit perfectly in a stocking, it also fits and conforms to jacket pockets. The easy-open flip cap cover can be opened with or without gloves and the self sealing soft nozzle is spill free. The Stow can be flattened and rolled into its bail handle and can be tucked away when not in use. Even better, the Stow’s durable and flexible material can withstand any fall or garage sale on the mountain and won’t cause any bruised ribs if landed on.
