Looking for a sick gift for my BF

I'm a non-boarder, looking to buy my boyfriend a boarding accessory. Up to the $200 mark... He's been boarding for 3 years now. I was thinking googles?? And if so, what brand's do I look at? Totally up for alternate suggestions. Thanks!!!

Well, ask him what kinda brands he likes? I myself would never buy anything but Oakley. But then again, I am an Oakley fan boy. Sunglasses, backpacks, tactical gear, etc.

How much does he snowboard? You could possibly buy him a couple lift tickets, and maybe buy one for you. That way you guys could go together.

He gets out as much as life allows him - after work and weekends. I was on the Oakley site... are their "Splice" googles, their newest? Or is there another style you would recommend?
As far as backpacks and tactical gear... what would I look for?
Thank you again.

Well my tactical gear is more for Police lol. I don't think he would need that stuff on the Mountain. Ha ha. My backpack actually works great. It is black kevlar type material. It has a spot for an iPod with a hole that headphones can come out of. Has great pockets for anything he would need on the mountain and even carries my laptop when I take it somewhere else (Has a laptop slot). I'll look for a picture of it and send it.

That's awesome... I'll check out the Oakley site again. So any other input as far as googles? What kind of lens/style should I look for?

It depends. I personally like a smokey lens. The reason why is it cuts down on snow glare and when it is bright outside. I'm not a huge fan of crazy colors for my lens lol. Find what you like on the Oakley site and then buy on Ebay. Find something brand new and with a buy it now. You should be able to save 50 bucks easy.
