Chris Yates's Bio

I spend my days skiing, hiking, backpacking, camping, biking, fishing and playing with my dog Jerry and my wife Sarah. I am lucky enough to have the best snow in the world to ski and multiple mountain ranges just out my back door that offer endless fun and adventure. When I get some time off of work I do my best to travel the world to find new mountains to play in but it is always nice to come home to the Wasatch.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The pack is great. It is very comfortable and rides well with the kid on board. It is very stable on the ground with the kick stand. My son loves riding in it and it is comfortable enough for him to fall asleep in and he usually can't fall asleep any where but his bed. The pack is very adjustable and fits people of all sizes. I highly recommend this pack.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought a pair of these shoes months ago as a gift and since then I have had two more people request them as presents. All three of them absolutely love them. They are so comfortable that they get worn from morning to night, inside and outside. I have always loved Merrell shoes and this is just another great example of their outstanding quality.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought this for a 4 year old for Christmas and I have learned that kids that age are brutally honest if they don't like a gift. Lucky for me this was a winner. TNF has mastered being stylish and functional. This jacket is the perfect weight - heavy enough for the little shredders to use as a mid layer and light enough to be used all summer long during the cool Utah nights.

This was a Christmas present for my wife and Santa did good. This is the ultimate mid layer. So warm and light and Arcteryx has figured out how to have a flattering cut on their women's jackets. The wife loves the Malachite color. You can't go wrong with anything from Arcteryx.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These gloves are super comfortable and very warm. The leather is very nice and seems like it will be durable. With the Goretex liner and the insulation these gloves will work in the worst weather. These gloves do run small so I would suggest sizing up.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

These shoes are great. Very comfortable and they keep my feet warm and dry in the worst weather. They are almost too warm for wearing indoors but they are ideal for shoveling the driveway or walking around town in the winter. They run pretty big so if you are deciding between two sizes, I would suggest sizing down.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought these shoes as a gift for my mother-in-law, which can be a risky proposition but it turned out perfectly. She absolutely loves these shoes. She wears them everyday, all day. I think she may even sleep in them. She says they are more comfortable than any other shoes she owns and even more comfortable than being barefoot. I think she has convinced about 10 other people to buy these shoes in the last month.

I bought this for my wife for Christmas and she has tried many vests to find the perfect one. The search stops here - she loves this vest. It looks great and it is super warm. It is long enough to keep any cold air from sneaking up your back. The material seems very durable and stain resistance. Overall this vest is a great choice.
