5 things you need in your snow kit this season

Snow season has well and truly arrived and we've found the best things to add to your kit.

Whether you're advanced, beginner or just love to soak up the apres ski vibe, you'll be excited that snow season has officially kicked off. 

From the newest clothing to fun gadgets, here are some of the items that you will want to include in your ultimate snow kit.

The jacket

For those times when you want flexibility with your clothing, Kathmandu's new line has the answer. The Styper 3 in 1 gives you the option to wear both the insulated layer and the waterproof one - or separate them if you need. It's a great option if you want bang for your buck considering you can easily wear the insulated layer long after you've hung up your boots.

The tunes

Some of us love to stick in our headphones and listen to our favourite tunes while on the slopes, but find ear buds a bit annoying. Bose have come up with the answer with their new Bose Frames - sunglasses with a teeny tiny speaker in the arms that projects music into your ears without bothering anyone else. The best thing is that they come with interchangeable lenses with polarised options. 

The vision

There's nothing worse than having your snow goggles get water spots on them when you want crystal-clear vision. Simply spray a film of Nikwax on your goggles and you won't have to worry about continuously wiping them after every run. 

The kids

Snow gear isn't cheap, so when buying for the kids it's hard to outlay that money with the idea that your kids will grow out of their ski pants soon. Kathmandu have released a new line with Xtend technology that will see their gear last more than one season - simply 'xtend' the kids' Styper pants or jacket for some extra wiggle room.

The chill

If your feet feel numb from the cold when you're hitting the slopes, try some heated insoles. This nifty invention from Therm-ic keeps your feet toasty with a heating element that sits inside the insoles.
