Casey Glaubman'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

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I gave this to my father as a gift, but this is a review from my mother about the product:

This is the second pair of Black Diamond trekking poles I've purchased. They're replacing the cheap, flimsy ones my husband tried to use. The locking mechanism for telescoping the poles is far superior to the "twist and pull" method on his cheaper ones. The hand grips are really comfortable as are the wrist bands. I've used my original pair for about 8 years and they've carried me over lots of steep, rocky paths. With arthritic feet, knees, and hips, I can continue to hike (mostly pain free!) using these poles.

Fit: True to size

I gave this as a gift but have this to share from the recipient:

This is the coziest hoodie I've ever owned. Perfect fit, not too sloppy, not too tight. I'm 5'5" tall, 140 lbs. and the medium fits well. The zipper is sturdy and the wide ribbing around the bottom is really flattering. Plus, I love the color. It makes me smile!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
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:

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.

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

From the recipient:

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.
