Magrette a New Zealand watch company, has some wonderful designed watches. The Regattare, is simple, yet elegant, rugged and sophisticated. A watch that can be worn everyday. It has automatic movement, and two bands, rubber and leather. The bezel works a bit different than normal, you adjust it with a turn of the adjustment dial, like you would the time, eliminating any problems you might have while underwater, like bumping it or rubbing up against something, turn the bezel to a different time.

One concern I have, after wearing the watch for a couple hour of receiving it the pin came out, watch dropped to the floor, lucky I was on a carpet. I have set Dion a message, let's hope he gets back to me. I will keep all posted. A nice screw in pin like other watches of this quality would have been a better choice, especially if you are changing the bands often.

Love These Glove Or Are They Mitten

So having a mitten or glove has always been a preference for many. You either can't tie your shoes or you can, scratch your head or not, you get the idea. This design from CAMP-USA, the price is excellent as well, $80. 

CAMP USA is the exclusive US importer and distributor of CAMP Technical Adventure Equipment, the 120 year-old Italian climbing and mountaineering brand.
From our offices just outside of Boulder, we occupy our time obsessing over gear, taking care of customers, and exploring the Colorado rockies. Lunchtime romps in the Flatirons, morning alpine climbs in Rocky Mountain National Park, and dawn patrol ski tours on Loveland Pass keep us honest.
In addition to our small and dedicated staff, we rely on our athletes and customers for feedback and that not-so-subtle kind of pressure climbers like to exert when they talk about gear. If you have feedback or need anything from us, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for visiting.

• Updated for 2011
• Ski Mountaineering Competitions, Winter Running
• Attached wind shells hide away in a pocket on the wrist
• Durable synthetic leather palm
• Grip’R pads on thumb, index finger, and palm for superior grip
• Reinforcement patch to prevent abrasion from pole straps
• Terry wipe on thumb
The ultimate glove for spring ski tours and races! For pre-dawn starts and above tree line ridges when the fingers need a bit more protection simply pull out the hidden wind mitts. The coated ripstop nylon Windmit’N covers the fingers and thumb while leaving the palm exposed for good grip. The G Comp Wind is also a great glove for cycling in foul weather.
