Casey's Bio

Backcountry.com’s Gearheads are your instant connection to gear knowledge. They’re passionate outdoor experts hell-bent on helping you find the right ski, saddle, or pro. Follow their adventures and exploits.

I grew up in Western Washington and moved to Utah a little over 3 years ago in order to pursue life as a professional ski bum.

I couldn't be happier with my decision although I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss being able to walk down to the water whenever I want. ( and no a giant body of smelly water full of brine shrimp does not count)

When I'm not working you can find me playing in the dirt, snow, water, or any place i don't have to worry about the way I smell.

Feel free to give me a call if you need some help! ext. 4285

Hi Daniel,

These would easily be warm enough. I assume you're not going for a winter ascent? Regardless, these should be more than warm enough. These are nice because you won't need an overboot with them. The removable liner is also key, as you can take it out and put it in your sleeping bag with you each night. Hope this helps!

Fit: True to size

I absolutely love this hat. I've used it for everything from trad-climbing to paddle-boarding, but have actually found my favorite spot to wear this hat is probably the golf course. It shades me well enough that I don't have to wear sunglasses, which I don't like while golfing. It's a bit of a foam material, rather than your typical hat. This lets it shed water extremely well too, which has come in handy a few times. Great hat.

From the recipient:

I haven't crashed while wearing this helmet so I cannot attest to its ability to protect your brain, but I will say that I really enjoy the functionality of the air vents, visor and ratchet adjustment. This is a very well designed and stylish biking helmet.

From the recipient:

When I bought this hat I told myself I should spring for one of the more expensive sun hats because then I?d only have to purchase a hat once, instead of destroying a cheap sun hate every summer like I had been. Boy was I wrong. The side bar lists the material as ?textile? but when I received the hat I was disappointed to discovered that the hat was made of paper straw like all the $20 sun hats I?d destroyed, and while it does seem to be made of a higher quality paper straw than I am used to, I am still a bit skeptical of its durability. Additionally the band around the base of the hat is glued on and after a few uses has already started peeling off.

It is a really cute hat though.

From the recipient:

If you're looking for the perfect pair of versatile summer shorts then stop looking, these are what you need. The stretchy fabric conforms to your shape and shows off that butt you?ve been working on all winter, but these shorts don?t just look good on you, they?ve also obviously been carefully designed to be used for a host of summer activities like climbing, rafting, hiking and biking. I cannot emphasize enough how incredibly pleased I am with these shorts and I suggest every outdoorswoman own a pair like these.
Waist: 27?
Hips: 38?
I purchased a small and they are snug but if you prefer a more relaxed fit I would suggest going up to a medium

I loved the vibrant teal color of the Coyote Butte Turquoise purse online, which is why I was so sorely disappointed by the mousey dull purse that I received. While the craft of purse was exceptional and the leather was high quality, I just didn?t want a purse that was anything less than the eye catching teal and sunset yellows of the pictures.

From the recipient:

I really wanted to like these shorts because they had some really innovative ideas behind the design, but ultimately I thoroughly disliked them. My first issue was with the fit. These shorts looked like something I had borrowed from my boyfriend, as nothing about them suggested that they were designed for a woman. The area of the shorts that connected the seat to the leg was excessively loose, oversized and completely unflattering. When I wore these it looked like I was wearing a diaper which was only exacerbated by my second issue with these shorts: the maternity waistband. Now don?t get me wrong, before I received these shorts in the mail I was quite intrigued by the ?comfort waistband? that the Oliana shorts touted, but I was sad to see that the execution of the elastic waistband left a lot to be desired. The connection between the material of the elastic waistband and the cotton shorts is poorly designed. The difference between the stretch of the materials causes a weird bunching which only add to the illusion that you might be wearing a diaper. I love the idea behind these shorts and would like La Sportiva to continue to create innovative climbing clothing, but they need to go back to the drawing board on these.

I received a small and I had plenty of room to wear an adult diaper underneath.

From the recipient:

I?ve wanted a pair of Chaco sandals since I was a little girl and last week I finally ordered my first pair. I?ve noticed that when I desire things for long periods of time I start to idolize them, only to be let down by the mediocre reality of the item. This was not one of those times. I absolutely love my new Chacos! They are so stylish while also being incredibly practical for anybody who loves to be outdoors. I can?t wait to take them on all the adventures I have planned this summer.
Foot: 25 cm/9.8?
I purchased a size 8 and they are on the cusp of being too big.
