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

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

I got these for my sister because she needed shoes for hiking half dome. These are a great choice for multiple surfaces. Part of the sole has lugs for hiking on soft surfaces. The other is flat for gripping solid rock. It's a great shoe for just about anything you'll see on the trail.

I summited Utah's highest peak last month and there was a woman at the summit with a pair of these shoes. She and my sister love these shoes and so will you!

I lost my Benchmade Griptillian a couple of years ago. I bought a new one to take hunting with me a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately the animals got lucky and I didn't have a chance to use the new steel on a big animal.

The knife is super sharp and comfortable to use when a lot of pressure is applied. I'm super stoked to have one!

I've been wearing this jacket for a couple of weeks now that the temps are finally dropping. I like the weight of the fabric. I have the 1/4 zip version, too but picked this up for more of an around-town, shoulder season jacket.

These are my go-to shorts for a lot of activities. Overall, they work well. My only wish is that they had a gusseted crotch. Prana puts gussets on a lot of different shorts and I'm not sure why they didn't for this model. Hopefully in the future they add that design. Until then, I'll keep using the ones I have.

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

Size Purchased: 8.5

This is what my wife has to say: These are my go to hiking shoes. I volley between sizes 8.5 to 9, I have these in 8.5 and they're perfect. I bought these for a trip to Europe because I knew we'd be hiking a bunch without much recovery time. They worked great and I still use them all the time. They held up great in the snow we ran into in Switzerland and kept my feet dry. My ankles have bothered me for years, these provided my ankle with great support. I also can get kind of tender footed after a rocky hike, I never have that issue with the Hoka Summit. Great buy!

I've been using my friend's HoldUp for a few years now and it works great. I bought a new whip this summer and bought this accessory so I could easily load up and head to the trailhead.

The design doesn't scratch up your bike's paint. There are cheaper bike racks out there but treat your bike right and transport it without being hard on your bike or your vehicle. It has a It also doubles as extra cargo storage if you need more room.
