Brian Mehregan's Bio

I live for blower powder, simple as that.

Originally from Michigan, and after a 4 year stint in Denver, I needed to be closer to the mountains that I love. Moving to Park City, UT was the best decision I could have ever made, and it led me to my current gig as a Gearhead for Backcountry.com.

Whether it is skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, camping, trail running... I'm always exploring the outdoors and searching for new experiences!

If you have any questions about gear, my adventures, or recommendations in the UT area, shoot me an email at bmehregan@backcountry.com, I would be happy to help!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I've had these shoes for about 4 months now and they have been all over Utah, from Bear Lake to Guardsmans Pass to Moab, they have handled everything I have thrown at them.

I'm most impressed with the durability of the Marshall, as I've "put these through the wringer" and honestly haven't even noticed a scuff on the shoe yet. I also like how quick they dry, as I have used them on some impromptu swims here in the Wasatch!

The Sanuk Baseline is my go-to summer shoe for a few reasons. For example, they are super light weight, they are easy to slip on and off, and they are quite durable given there minimalist construction. This is my second pair of Sanuks and my first lasted nearly 4 years, so I'm stoked for these!

I use the Rassler as my go-to mountain biking shoe. The Cordura upper is really burly and has definitely held up to being scraped on my pedals and trees, bushes, etc.

I've also used these as a hiking shoe, and the stealth rubber is truly awesome. Hiking up 10,420 and Clayton in Park City, UT requires some rock scrambling and these shoes killed it.

Finally, I think they run a little small but mine did stretch out slightly and fit fine now.

Overall, I like these shoes. Great styling and they seem to be holding up well to normal use. I'd rather not have the suede on the toe as it is a bit harder to keep clean, but it's not a deal breaker and looks pretty classy anyways!

Used my Jetboil Flash for the first time while camping at Bear Lake in Utah, and loved it! This thing boils water nearly instantly. In fact, I mentioned to my camping buddies that I almost wished it was a bit slower to make preparing meals a little less hectic.

I've only cooked a few meals, but the speed, convenience, and portability of this system seems to be unmatched.

I just installed these on my Giant Glory and I am very pleased! While they are described as a "wet-weather" tire, I have now used them three days on the bone-dry downhill trails at Deer Valley Resort, and the traction they provide is awesome.

I'm sure that when the trails get a little wet, these tires will grip and rip even better!

Probably one of the simplest pieces of gear I own, but also one of my favorites! As the reviews say, you could probably use this thing in a thousand different ways/situations. Even with a beard, the microfiber polyester fabric is holding up great!

I've been wearing this for 2 seasons now, and while I will be retiring it after this month, it has been great to me!

I use the Fornix without the earpiece's, which unfortunately means that I cant use the twisting dial that either tightens or loosens the inner liner, as it is connected to the earpieces. Bummer, but it still offers a great fit for me.

I have used this helmet with many different goggles, but mostly the Smith I/OS, which creates a great fit and does not leave you with a dreaded "Gaper Gap". It also seems to work well with Oakley Splice's.

I've put this thing through the wringer (and plenty of trees) and my brain is still in my head so, there ya go!

The ear flaps, adjustment control, and the neck warmer you are referring to are all connected as one piece. To take it off, grab the ear flaps near where they connect to the helmet and give a firm pull, they will slide out. Do that to both sides and you should be good to go!

I rock the Fornix with I/OS goggles, which has a nearly identical design, and the gap is non-existent so you should be good with the I/O!

Hey Sebastian,

The Norwalk is a great ski (I bought them this season) but it sounds like you might want something more "all-mountain" oriented, such as the Armada TST, which can be found here:

http://www.backcountry.com/armada-tst-ski?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6VFNUOjE6MTpUU1Q

This ski will still offer great performance off the groomed runs, but will perform better in a wider range of conditions.

A great review of the TST can be found here:

Let us know if you have any more questions!
