Rounding out your stocking with gifts from Telluride’s Jagged Edge

PC210053 Erik Dalton of Telluride's Jagged Edge is as busy as one of Santa's elves these days. Tonight, December 23, Jagged Edge is sponsoring a screening of Warren Miller's "Dynasty," the 60th action adventure film in the series and a look at the past, present and future of the twin sports of skiing and snowboarding. The event takes place at the Sheridan Opera House, 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. At the same time, Erik is channeling his inner Ho Ho Ho to bring you last minute ideas from Jagged Edge to round out your Christmas stocking. The following are his eleventh-hour picks.

Nikwax cleaning and waterproofing products are great for prolonging the life of your favorite jacket or pair of ski pants. Normal detergents tend to strip many outdoor fabrics of their waterproof treatments, clogging pores and hindering breathability. Nikwax washes effectively clean fabrics without leaving residue behind. Washes can be enhanced by using a waterproofing treatment specific to the make of the garment. Whether we are talking about your favorite wool ski sweater, your best pair of ski bibs, or even that old tent fly, Nikwax has a product for under $15 to make old favorites new again.

PC210027 The Ibex kilometer glove blends the warmth and function of natural mid-weight merino wool with the technical capabilities of waterproof nylon to create a glove that is perfect for almost everything outdoors. Grab it as you head out the door to scrape the snow off the car. It’s the one to wear when you are throwing a ball for your dog in Town Park, and then want to grab a quick few laps around the skate track. Available in sizes for a perfect fit. Price: $60.

PC210029 Morning coffee is a sacred tradition in Telluride, but so are sustainable practices for the planet. Forget disposable paper cups. Keep your brew hot and securely contained with the Commuter Mug from camping experts Primus. This stainless steel vacuum insulated mug holds 14 oz. of your favorite beverage and includes a silicon seal between mug and lid to ensure a spill-proof setup. A simple button on the lid opens and closes the drinking port, facilitating ease of use. The Commuter Mug is  also small enough enough to fit in the lid of a pack or basket. Price: $24.

PC210037 Petzl Tikkina headlamp is a powerful flashlight that fits into the palm of your hand and securely attaches around head, hat, or helmet. New and improved performance LED bulbs, a push-button switch to toggle between economical and high power modes, and an easily adjustable headband make this headlamp a reliable partner after dark. Powered by three AAA batteries, which are included with purchase, the Petzl Tikkina can run for 190 hours when set in the economical mode.  Sold in a variety of colors. Price: $20.
