ReCON INSTRUMENTS MOD LIVE ALPINE GOGGLES | $400 |reconinstruments.com/products/mod | With the exception of the neo-Richard Bransons of the world, most one-percenters don't actuallylive the life of a jet-setting billionaire playboy-slash-technology geek. This may just get you one step closer, however, as the MOD Live Alpine goggles are something right out of Mission: Impossible. Think: an in-goggle, full-color widescreen LCD virtual display with real-time GPS tracking of your location, plus buddy tracking, a speedometer, video recording, attitude and distance monitoring, jump analytics, vertical tracking for one run or the season, and smart-phone Bluetooth connectivity for music and calls (yes, it has visual caller ID). You'll navigate through the different dashboard screens via remote and/or the control buttons on the head-strap, for which you don't even need to remove your gloves. The cherry on top? We hear it keeps the snow out of your eyes.

  •   GREAT GEAR TO SPICE UP ANY SKI TRIP, WHETHER IN YOUR BACK YARD — OR THE MIDDLE EAST  |  December 05, 2011
    You can’t turn around these days and not hear of someone from the one percent telling a 99-percenter to go take a shower and get a job. And as much as we take sides on the matter, today we’re putting aside our differences (more or less) to present both factions a quick gift guide for the 2011-’12 ski season.

    As often happens when one makes judgments based on frivolous psychological connections (see: book, cover), one is often quite wrong.
