Winter may have been a little late in coming this year, but thanks to the snow-covered streets of gadget town, our thoughts are finally turning to all things alpine.Whetting our appetite for a slope of virgin powder are Plantronics and Quiksilver who've combined creative forces to unleash a range of Bluetooth snowboarding gear.The jackets and helmets feature built-in AD2P Bluetooth speakers for wirefree music, and Plantronics microphones for handsfree talking.The Daffy parka (pictured) also has a pouch for your iPod or MP3 spinner while the girls have a Roxy Shiver helmet and Teenangel jacket on the way too.Sadly they don't hit the slopes ‘til next season so we'll have to make do with our old O'Neill Hub jacket for now.
