Garrett Leight Ashland Sunglasses ($355)

Designed in California and inspired by the ’60s. These sunglasses offer up the highest quality of fit and finish you can bet, beg, and barter for. Lurk behind the clearest polarized lenses in the free world. Splurge on eyeballs once in a while, they’re all you got.—J.A.

Absinthe Films Dopamine ($30)

I wish I got the knife so I could shank one of these bonehead editors for their stuff. Instead Ijust got this DVD. But it’s not just any movie; it’s some of the heaviest riding and creative filmmaking of the year. I love the Dope!—Intern

Leatherman Crater C33Tx ($42)

Folding blade? Check. Phillips screwdriver? Yup. Flathead screwdriver? Got it. Bottle opener? Duh! You really can’t beat a knife that packs this many functions into it and still remains streamline and stealth. Use as directed, abuse as needed.—J.A.

Tsovet SVT-DW44 Nautical Watch ($525)

Spies, espionage, and covert tactical strikes at rigorous oceanic depths is exactly what this watch is designed for. James Bond would approve. Oh, and it works great up high in the cold, too. Synchronize your watches now it’s 16:20.—J.A.

NATION Book and DVD ($35)
twsnow.com

We’ve wanted to make a book for years. With the diverse crew filming for our fourth movie Nation, we were able to capture imagery of riding from all over the globe and present it in this clean hardbound. It’s an awesome look at snowboarding and rare—only 2,000 copies—get one while you can!—N.H.

GoPro Hero 3+ ($300–400)
gopro.com

Everyone knows how awesome GoPros are for video, just check the Nation movie for evidence. What people don’t necessarily realize is how sick these little cameras are for photos, too. When I’m riding I always keep mine in my top jacket pocket, set on burst mode, ready to document anything that goes down at 30 frames a second in 12mp files. For shooting powder wheelie selfies to posting up under the biggest cliff in town, you wont miss a moment.—N.H.
