Cameron C's Bio

If you think I'm that ruggedly beautiful woman pictured on the chat screen, think again. I have a face for radio and a voice for online chat.

I was born and raised in Utah but I've also lived in Germany, Texas, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California.

In the summer I like to road bike, waterski, trail run, hike, canyoneer and climb. In the winter I can be found skiing, snowshoeing or indoor rock climbing.

FOLLOW ME AND I'LL KEEP YOU UPDATED ON SOME GREAT DEALS. I'LL ALSO POST SOME GREAT REVIEWS AND PICTURES OF SKIING, CLIMBING AND HIKING GEAR. SEND ANY OF YOUR GEAR QUESTIONS TO: CCOSTLEY@BACKCOUNTRY.COM.

I work Tuesday - Friday 7:00-3:00 Mountain Time.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn." -John Muir

Last month I was hiking to a waterfall near Gimmelwald, Switzerland. An old Swiss lady was sitting on a bench near the trail and invited my wife and me to sit on the bench for a quick break. We accepted the offer.

The Swiss lady and I conversed for a few minutes in German. I told her we were hiking to the waterfall. She looked at us sideways and informed us there would still be snow on the trail (I bought the Vasque Breeze 2.0 low GTX just for hiking in the snow but I wasn't wearing them!!) I told her we would be fine. She scrutinized our footwear, gave her approval, and off we went.

The Swiss lady was correct on two counts: There was snow on the trail close to the waterfall. And our footwear performed well.

These are my go-to shoes, though. They fit well and just keep getting better looking with time. I highly recommend them!

I'm usually a 9.5 in shoes. I went with the 9.5 in these and they were snug at first but they do stretch a little for a more customized fit!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this as a gift to my one year old nephew. I chose this because it's waterproof and fleece lined. It's easy to clean and it's warm. After walking around looking at Christmas lights, my sister-in-law said this was the "best present ever."

Basically, buy this if you want to be a cool uncle or parent!

I bought an 18M for my 12M nephew. He's short for his age and the Joules Baby Charlie is very large on him but I bought the 18M so my future nieces and nephews could enjoy their first real winter.

The Cosmo is a great headlamp. I have the old version of the BD Storm and bought this as a backup for the times I can't find my Storm. I know my Storm is technically brighter but focus of the light on the high beam is overall more effective on this model than my old Storm.

What are you doing? Just buy one already!

If stretchy pants and denim pants had a baby, it'd be the prAna Bridger Pant.

These pants were designed to move. They fit great, they move great and they don't even have a gusseted crotch. Another winner from prAna!

I bought these for my wife. She had never worn Hoka's before but the shoes are known for creating less fatigue and a quicker recovery.

My wife loves them. They're so comfy she says, "It's like wearing pillows on my feet."

The shoes are true to size and she's stoked to put them on the trail this summer!

My sister lives in the Bay area and wears this jacket all of the time. She says it keeps her very comfortable.

She and her husband went out whale watching and her husband was wearing a lot of layers and he was freezing. My sister had this and a shell and she was comfortable for the duration of the tour. This is coming from a girl who typically freezes under two duvets in an over heated room.

The Bronsons are very comfortable. The fabric is soft and has some stretch. The cut is in between slim and relaxed. Overall they are a great pair of pants.

I bought the Pewter color and it is more green than grey. They are true to size.

Bottom line: you'll love them.

I picked myself up a pair of these for Christmas. I didn't really know what to expect but I thought I'd give them a try.

They are a pair of lightweight pants that are great for lounging around or going to the beach. The fabric is very comfortable. They are great if you work from home and want to wear something other than you pjs to give yourself a little bit more of a dignified feel.

I'm a 33 waist and ordered the M. The pants barely go over my glutes when I put them on, but they fit comfortably.

Hands down these are the schnazziest shoes I own. I always get compliments on them. The leather is nice and soft. They are not comfortable enough for running but comfortable enough to be worn and walked in a for a while.

I usually wear a size 9.5 and my 43s in this shoe fit great.

I was looking for a waterproof boot with a little insulation that I can wear snowshoeing, shoveling snow and go out on the town in a wintery night. After searching a lot of options, I decided this was the best for me because it has a medium amount of insulation and it's not a tall boot.

I wear gaiters for snowshoeing so I don't get snow down my boots.

So far, these boots have worked out great. They are not bulky but still warm enough for the cold winter we are having in Utah. They fit true to size. I wear a 9.5 in just about everything and I bought a 9.5 in these boots and they fit great.

I do have two complaints and they are the reason I'm awarding these 4 starts. 1) the spandex stretch on the boot's ankle is not waterproof. Any water that high will get inside your boot. 2) I have put some minor scuffs on the toe of the boot from walking through ice-crusted snow. I realize I was tromping through shards of ice but the leather toe doesn't handle it as well as a rubber toe. It's a handsome boot but not as durable as other models.

I wanted a messenger bag to help me stay organized. 20 L is a very roomy size for most of my needs but the price was great so I pulled the trigger.

The laptop sleeve is very large. It will easily hold any laptop. The velcro is a nice feature for quick, on the go closures. It's great quality and I have no doubt the bag will last many years. I got the Carbon color and it looks really sharp in real life!

Fit: Runs small
Size Purchased: Large

I bought these for my wife because her fingerless gloves were not warm enough for her fall riding. She usually fits in a medium women's glove but I had to get her the Large sized to fit her hands. Once the size was right, she really liked them!
