All CAMP glasses are made from a plant based bioplastic made from castor seeds. This process allows SHWOOD to create a more environmental friendly product by avoiding petroleum-based plastics.

The Zeus comes fully charged and lives in its own carrying case that holds the various adapters. Dual USB ports can charge devices while the flashlight is can be used as a SOS light. Grab one from Uncharted Supply’s Website. 

First Ait Pro

They also make a variety of first aid kits and multi-day supply packs. Don’t hesitate to check those out for the guy in your life. I personally carry the First Aid Pro with me because of the MOLLE system that allows me to attach it to a ATV/outdoor vehicle, or my 511 backpack. The personalization option for the First Aid Pro allows me to add in a chemical ice pack and suture closure kit.

Challenger goggles

Challenger goggles are where Glade gets serious. Most goggles don’t fit my face very well and I tend to ski trees and moguls exclusively. I need something that works in lower light and gives me enhanced depth perception. Last season I went all in on a $250 pair of high end goggles that have been nothing but a disappointment . While they work well in low light they don’t fit as well as I want and they are constantly fogging and icing up. I took the Ten Mile helmet and Challenger goggles with me on a Cat ski trip this last weekend with my father. With 14 inches of fresh snow we were expecting an epic day. What we didn’t anticipate was a warming trend that hit and we found ourselves with surprisingly good snow but poor visibility and very light rain. The Challenger goggles weathered through with me. What I didn’t have was fogging, slipping or a poor fit.

Glade Challenger Goggles can be found on their website HERE.

If none of these work, I suggest getting him the puppy you’ve always wanted.

Happy Holidays and Safe Travels!
