The CMH Holiday Gift Guide is back – and it’s better than ever. We’ve hand selected the best presents for the holiday season, so all you have to do is chose the right bow to match.
Prices listed are in Canadian dollars.
Arc’teryx: Women’s Beta AR Air Jacket
This lightweight, breathable and packable Gore-Tex jacket from Arc’teryx is all-mountain apparel, meaning its design and functionality are versatile for diverse activities and conditions. The hood is helmet compatible, and the jacket interior with collar, pit zips, and a length to accommodate layers, makes it perfect for any weather that nature wants to throw at you. Women’s and men’s styles are available.
For those keen to create their own gift, why not make a hamper for the adventurer in your life. Pack it with their favourite go-to snacks that they enjoy when out hiking or on their skis. Throw in some Clif Bars, dark chocolate covered dried fruit, and gourmet jerky.
Insanely smooth video has arrived. The new GoPro Hero7 Black has landed with fresh features such as the impressive Gimbal-like stabilization that’s built into the camera, as well as live streaming capability and voice control. As always, these features are packed into the tough, waterproof camera that we’ve come to love. What are the holidays without a new gadget?
