Dan Mark’s Holiday Gift Picks

Dan, Customer Experience Manager at Sporting Life Yonge Street location, shares his top 3 gift picks for the holiday season.

The North Face Thermoball Eco traction mule

I love these for winter camping and as a driving shoe during the winter. I’ll often slide right into them after a Nordic ski trip for the ride home. 

Patagonia Snap-T Fleece

These are great midlayers for low athletic level winter activities like hiking. They can also sub as an “Ugly Christmas sweater” at your office holiday party in a pinch.

Theragun Mini Massager

Cold weather activities like Nordic skiing and snowshoeing can lead to sore legs and shoulders (especially if you’re not stretching enough!) I use mine to soothe angry Knots while sipping some whisky hot chocolate back at the cottage after a backcountry ski adventure.
