Lifeventure Cable Lock

It doesn’t matter if he’s using his own kit or some rental gear, having your snowboard stolen can put a real dampener on the whole trip…especially if it gets nicked halfway up the slope when you’ve nipped in for some après-ski ahead of tackling the ski-out (not that we’d recommend that, of course).

There is an easy solution of course, and that’s to buy him one of these snazzy cable locks to lock up his gear with.

Tech Wash Cleaner & Waterproofer

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that snowboarding clothes lose their waterproofness over time.

This pack from Nikwax includes both a cleaner to clean clothes, and a wash-in solution to restore water repellency while maintaining breathability.
