Bean Bag Sled

We're pretty sure that someone, somewhere has slid down a snow-covered hill atop a bean bag before, but they probably didn't have as good a time as you could aboard the Bean Bag Sled ($300). To reduce the shock to your lower back, it features an inflatable air bladder inside, which is surrounded by tons of the 2mm polystyrene spheres you'd expect, and also boasts top and sides made from double-stitched PVC-coated polyester, a bottom mesh of double-coated PVC, and a strap. Quick, where's the non-caloric, silicon-based kitchen lubricant?

  • Wave Cave

    Take the idea of the surfer sleeping on the beach to its literal extreme with the Wave Cave ($260-$320). This combination surfboard case and tent can carry your boards — up to four of 'em — safely from your latest crash pad to the ocean, where you can remove the tent from its dedicated pocket, clip it to the bag, and zip your way around to create a protective shelter, while the padding that kept your boards cushioned earlier now makes for a nice place to lay your head. Note: does not protect against high tide, or crab infestations.

  • Burton Mix Master Gloves

    It wasn't long after the iPod's debut that winter sport enthusiasts realized that controlling the thing with gloves on was a real pain — and they've spent the last ten years coming up with ways to get around it. The Burton Mix Master Gloves ($160) represent one of the smartest solutions we've seen, integrating controls into the glove that communicate reliably with any iPod or iPhone over an RF connection. Of course, they also need to be good gloves, so they pack a waterproof Dryride Insane Membrane, a Gnar Guard leather exterior, microfiber lining, and a Pistol Grip pre-curved fit that increases dexterity while ensuring warmth.
