1 pair bought with my own money from working and student loan money.
i bought my boots myself.
I bought my current outerwear,
have had cheap pieces of outerwear bought as presents from family
my goggles were a present, i bought other lenses for the frames.
my transceiver was a present, my probe and shovel i bought.
my ski bag i bought.
i've bought all my uni ski trips myself on work money and loans
the one piece of equipment that was bought by my parents and wasnt a present was my helmet, i mean who wouldnt want to protect their childs brain/skull/mental health?
