Buying New Snowboard Gear - Helmet & Mittens

October 30, 2017


In this video we're on the hunt for new gear for Chris. After wearing Kevin's hand-me-down mittens and helmet for a few weeks it's time to get something fresh. With wet hands and a sore head we hit up some shops. The mittens are barely functioning with holes appearing all over, good for storing change inside but definitely no longer waterproof. The old helmet is in good condition but a sub-par fit is leaving him with a pressure point at the top of the forehead. After riding all day we ride down to the village and head first to Showcase Snowboards to check out their gear. After looking at the mittens we check out the helmets and find the new Anon Blitz. They are owned by Burton and come with 2 year warranty, and are a really good fit for his giant oddly shaped cranium. When buying new gear check out all the brands and find your favorite. Focus on function over fashion to be happy with your purchase and avoid any buyer's remorse

Walking around Whistler we meet a couple of fans and stop for a chat before heading to the north side of the village to the Circle: they carry some of the more obscure brands, including Howl mittens. After trying on a few pairs and making a mess of their display he settles on the Howl + Airblaster Fairbanks black mitts with the pterodactyl on the palm.
With all the hard work done its time to grab a burger and call it a day.
