10 Yamaha Snowmobile Gift Ideas

Are you looking for some of the best gift ideas for the Yamaha snowmobiler in your life?

Whether you're buying for your husband, wife, child, family member, friend, or an alien, here's a sampling of quality gifts for you to consider to put a smile on their face.

I think we can both agree if an alien came to Earth, they'd want to snowmobile!

The Craze Mittens by Divas SnowGear prove that mittens aren’t just for kids anymore. Made of a HIPORA® waterproof, windproof, breathable membrane and 3M Thinsulate Insulation hands will be kept warm and dry all day long. One of the best features of these mittens is the zipper pocket on the back of the hand meant to hold a heating pack. Available in adult sizes XS-XL.  


Men's Yamaha Snowmobile Gloves

3. Yamaha Snowmobile Gloves (Men)

There’s no way that gloves can look cool and be functional, right? The Leather Gauntlet Gloves prove that statement wrong.

Did you know that you will lose 2-5lbs of tire pressure during the winter storage months?

If you ride (or have a loved one that does), please remember to check your tire pressure before you hit the open road. Under-inflated tires can be dangerous for you and your passenger. We use and recommend a mini air compressor from Slime to stay as safe as possible the entire season. 

We're offering them for only $42.95 until 5/31/15.
