Stocking Stuffers for Climbers
One of the best parts of the Christmas tradition is checking out all the little surprises that you get when you dump your stocking upside down.
If one of the people you're shopping for is a climber, there are no shortage of neat pint-sized gifts that you can get for their stocking. People usually think important climbing gear consists of big ticket items like ropes, shoes, trad gear, or sport climbing gear, but there are some really important items that every climber needs that won't even come close to breaking the bank.
Below are a few suggestions for some very thoughtful ideas of things you can get at AntiGravity Equipment that your climber is sure to appreciate!
Friendly Foot Shoe Deodorizer - This gift benefits everybody! Don't let your climbing partner be THAT person. You know the one. The one that everyone recognizes has entered the gym 5 minutes before they actually stepped through the door. Climbing shoes can be a breeding ground for funky bacteria. Friendly Foot powder is made of pleasant-smelling natural ingredients that restore the pH imbalance caused by smelly bacteria inside of climbing shoes. Just a couple of puffs per day and in no time at all that shoe funk will be completely gone!
Secret Stuff Liquid Chalk - Friction Labs' liquid chalk solution is a great alternative to messy magnesium carbonate powder. If your friend climbs at a gym that only allows chalk balls, this can be a great alternative to having to squeeze a chalk ball to keep your hands dry. It also works great for hang board workouts where rest intervals don't give your hands enough time for a quick dip before getting back on the board. Sometimes there are sustained routes outside that will have you climbing uninterrupted for long stretches of terrain before you can eek out a rest and a chalk-up. Liquid chalk forms a great base layer keeping your hands dry until you can get to that coveted rest spot.
Repair Cream - Absolutely THE BEST hand repair cream out on the market. Repair hand cream goes on like a normal hand cream and soaks into your skin within seconds leaving zero oily residue that takes hours to absorb. This means you can apply it immediately after your session is over and within a few minutes you can already begin to feel its effects. The willow bark ingredient will sooth those burning finger tips and raw skin like a natural form of aspirin. After the cream has been absorbed by your skin, its other natural ingredients go to work repairing your worn down epidermal layers to promote faster skin recovery.
