Style on the Slopes: Snowboarding Must-Haves
You are also wondering what to wear. It is important to dress smart to protect your safety, but you also want to look stylish.
Visit your local snowboard shop or search online and you will find that snowboarding gear can look quite fashionable. Here are some tips to make you the best-dressed snowboarder at the resort:
Snowboarding boots in combination with bindings keep your body attached to your snowboard. Good boots will give you maximum control over your board, protect your feet and ankles from the pressures of high speed turns, and keep your feet warm. Boots come in many variations and styles for both men and women. There are soft and hard snowboard boots in an assortment of colors beyond solid black and white. Pick a boot with an eye-catching color such as green, pink, or aqua.
Eyewear is an essential part of snowboarding. This extreme sport involves moving at adrenaline-pumping speeds through wind and ice. Luckily, companies specializing in protective eyewear for snowboarding make it easy to hit the slopes in style with the high-quality, unique styles they offer.
When packing for your upcoming snowboarding trip, do not leave behind your Electric sunglasses or snow goggles.
Waterproofing, taped seams, an attached hood and a high collar are a few key features to look for when choosing a snowboarding jacket. The jacket should keep you as warm and dry as possible during brutal winter weather. You should also make sure to buy a jacket that allows air to circulate so you do not become too sweaty.
Additional features like a pockets and storage places for your cell phone are a bonus of many jackets on the market. Jackets can be both stylish and functional, while allowing you to have a fun-filled day to show off your skills.
A board bag can be a snowboarder’s best friend. A popular option is the board bag with padding, including compartments for storage and even handles and wheels for convenience when travelling through an airport. Board bags help make your experience of navigating baggage claims and taxis effortless. Bags are made in a variety of patterns and can be carried on your shoulder or like a backpack. Remember to measure your board before buying a bag. There are several different sizes available on the market and you want one that is slightly longer than the board you ride.
