We know getting ready for Christmas can be intense – there’s so much to do. Visiting relatives, making meals, getting presents for the kids. But what about the motorhead in your life? Have they been neglected?
If so, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our top ten list of last minute gifts for snowmobilers that are guaranteed to arrive before the big day. From Wisconsin to Michigan, Ontario to Quebec, these are guaranteed to put a big smile on your gearheads face.
And if you are the gearhead in question – don’t hesitate to send them this link!
Kolpin’s mitts go over snowmobile handlebars to reduce the effect of cold wind and keep hands warm. While they may not look the coolest, they’re a great budget add to anyone’s snowmobile kit.
If there’s one thing a snowmobiler always needs it’s more storage. Sure, you can get fancy manufacturer systems that bolt right to the tunnel, but when push comes to shove, most of us sledders want quick, easy, and convenient storage – and this PowerMadd Riser Bag is just that. A bargain.
There has been a cataclismic shift in battery technology that has happened right under our noses over the past decade. Gone are the bulky lead-acid bricks that are basically impossible to carry on a snowmobile trip. Enter the brand new lithium ion battery booster packs with enough punch to jump start a dead truck, let alone snowmobile. Fits easily in your riser bag!
For those of us running with open trailers, covered snowmobiles are essential. Everyone hates getting to a destination, only to discover a sled covered in frozen filthy road slush and their windshield and graphics chipped and nicked by gravel and salt. And it doubles as a great way to keep the dust off in the summer months.
5. Klim Nac Pak
We love Klim gear, and nothing is perhaps more useful than their Nac Pak combo of backpack and compact shovel. With the forecast calling for lots of snow this year, we know more than a few of us will need digging out.
In a perfect world we’d all carry spare belts, never run out of battery, and always keep our sleds maintained. In reality, sh!t happens and more often than not there’s always one guy who needs to be towed back to camp.
The saviour of the sledder! Weather conditions can change so quickly these days – mornings that were bright and clear can end wet and cold. HotHands aren’t just for hands, and this bulk purchase comes with a free carrying pouch. For the sledder who has everything – you can always use more HotHands.
While this isn’t as useful in the winter, in the summer the snowmobiles like to be inside – but space in the garage can be an issue. Enter the snowmobile dolly, allowing die-hard sledders to easily move their sled around while they’re working on other projects in the garage.
When you’re on a great trip, the last thing you want to do is stop. These high protein energy bars will give your sledder the boost they need to keep going until it’s time to stop. Easy to store, and packed with goodness so they won’t feel back for scarfing down one on a quick break.
Ok – everyone gets stuck at some point. It’s part of the fun of snowmobiling. But what isn’t always fun in pulling a sled out. The Snobunje really takes the stress out of moving equipment around. Just attach the hook to the front of the ski and find your biggest strongest friend. Then, lead back, and let the Snobunje do the rest of the work!
That’s our list for the year! These are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas, assuming you order before December 22nd! Good luck!
