Remind Solution Snowboard Boot Liners


Why buy a new pair of snowboard boots when you can feel as if you have new ones by replacing the liners? Remind Solution has marketed a snug-fitting liner with four-layer construction that weighs in at just over 10 ounces. They may outlast the boots themselves.




Backpackers love the notion of multiuse gear – less to carry, of course. How about this for a two-in-one gizmo: water bottle-slash-lantern? The Lightcap is a solar-powered top that fits most of the common water bottles (Nalgene, Camelbak). On top of the cap is a solar panel; on the bottom four LED lights that make the whole bottle glow when fully charged.
