Three shopping days left, and we know you’re scratching your heads about the boarders on your list. Don’t worry, good things come to those who wait– SBC’s got you covered. The goods on this list are field tested and guaranteed to make snowboarding better for the folks you care about the most. So read up, hit the shop, and make a shredder’s Christmas!
This merino mid-layer is the piece we didn’t know we’d been missing. Warm where you need it, soft next to the skin, and 5-days-in-a-row stink-proof, adding the Corbet Jacket to our kit has meant a lot of closet time for our other insulators. The material is all-time comfy, stretches as you move, and the zipper breast pocket has an internal headphone port that keeps your cords tucked nicely against your body. The Corbet Jacket is guaranteed to be a hit with the shred connoisseur in your life– if he’s got two of everything, this is your go-to.
A helmet they’ll actually wear– this fully snow-certified lid has the classic style snowboarders are after, and with just enough features to match up against more tech-focused options. The Legend Snow has ample venting, removable pads and goggle clips for the over-the-toque look, and an audio-ready ear-cozy that lets riders rig up their favourite tunes. With a low-profile construction, this helmet is comfy, stylish, and most importantly, safe. We recommend a matte colourway for maximum stee.
Is the boarder in your life constantly going on about Jeremy Jones? Do they spend hours geeking over splitboards and planning wild mountain adventures? The Herd Macgyver Survival Kit will win you some major points– small enough to fit in a day pack, this kit includes first-aid supplies, fire starter, a compass, and more. Prepare them for the worst with a gift that packs a tonne of value, from a company owned by backcountry snowboarders.
Designed and tested by the one and only Matt Heneghan, the Salmon Arms Hene Mitt is Seymour-certified rad. The waterproof insert and ultra-tough palm mean no problems through the wettest rope-tow laps, and there’s no question of style when #TheSalmonArmy flags are flying. And, at 65 dollars, these ones keep you on track for a January in the black.
The Force has long been the flagship binding of bang-for-your-buck all-mountain shreds. There’s not a park or lift line in the country that isn’t decorated with 300-day-deep Force bindings that still hold up to the demands of expert riders– these bindings just keep going. We’re confident that you won’t find better value when looking for that next-level gift.
As long as you’ve got a White Christmas, this gift means they’re going snowboarding. For about the price of two lift tickets, this one turns their backyards, sliding hills, and sidewalks into mountains. Connect them with their history or remind them of the glory days– the Burton Throwback is something every shredder can enjoy.
Wanna win Christmas? Get them the Nitro Quiver Pow. This board follows the shape trend to a short, fat swallowtail, a perfect geometry for staying on top of deep snow and maneuvering quickly through the trees. There’s no day to deep for the Quiver Pow, and you’re not gonna hear the end of how much they appreciate it. This gift will buy you love, period.
