Most ski poles are glorified sticks but the guys at Char Poles have taken glorification to a new level. Forgot to spin your DINs up at home? The color-customizable Tool Box grips feature built-in Phillips and flat head screwdrivers that unscrew for on-mountain adjustments, as well as a universal camera mount. Plus, the baskets have a bottle opener. [110/120/130cm, $99.99 (Bare Bones handle) $129.99 (Tool Box handle), available next fall, charpoles.com]
