WEDZE Virtuous jacket

This jacket also features a removable vest that a wearer can inflate via a small tube. So when you're cold, just blow up the vest. Inflation provides a six degree increase in temperature. When hot, the wearer can deflate and detach the vest and use the outer jacket on its own.

"Innovative, simple and functional--you can adjust the warmth of this jacket to your personal taste so skiing remains enjoyable, whatever the weather conditions."

--Rosario Costa, creative director, LEGO System A/S (Denmark)

TRIBORD R'gomoove

The new R'gomoove snorkeling fins are the result of advanced research into aquatic propulsion. The angled blade makes for more comfortable kicking and helps reduce hyperextension of the feet. The Velcro strap adjustment system provides a closer fit and improved ergonomics and makes the flippers as easy to pull on as shoes.

Digital Camera by Canon

This product is a digital camera specialized for outdoor use. It is waterproof up to 10m, highly dust resistant, cold resistant up to -10°C and shockproof up to 1.22m. The control buttons are large so users can operate them even when wearing gloves, and thanks to a newly developed auto mode, practically the only button users need operate is the shutter button. An innovative design allows a variety of straps to be attached to the four corners of the camera so users can carry in whichever way suits them. Users can easily switch between different colored faceplates to tailor the camera's appearance to its environment. The main target is men in their 30s who enjoy sea, mountain and other outdoor excursions.

NPX Lucifer Drysuit

The industry's first snowboard-style drysuit, the Lucifer is a one-piece drysuit that looks like a separate jacket and pants. The Lucifer is intended for kitesurfing in extremely cold climates. A special hole in the front allows the wearer to keep the harness (a special belt to connect to the kite) concealed under the jacket.  Water- and wind-proof fabric with latex seals at the wrists and ankles keeps the wearer warm while being fully breathable, allowing for perspiration. The inner tricot layer of the fabric provides comfort next to the skin, and the fit of the Lucifer was designed and tested by professional riders for ideal, unrestricted freedom of movement when performing kitesurfing maneuvers.
