Evan Grott's Bio

I'm orginally from a small town in upstate New York. I moved out to Utah in September of 10' and am loving every second of it. I had the best ski season of my life this past year and am looking forward to many more.

If you dont want to look like a teletubbie out on the hill with a Gopro this is the next best option, with things only looking better for contour in the future are they progress once again with the 3. im excited too see quality get better etc. but this thing is great bang for the buck

Fit: Runs large

I had last years Stinson trails in a size 10.5 and had some issues with them being to small so i purchased this new model in an 11.0 and was extremely excited to see a new upper on the shoe right up until i put it on and it fit quite large. I had to then get a pair of 10.5s again to get the perfect fit. (buyers be warned if you have owned the old stinson and buy this years model you might want to buy a half size smaller to accommodate the new upper on this shoe) other than the size fowl up the shoes have been amazing, lightweight with lots of cushion.

I have used this pack all spring here in Utah and it has done nothing but out perform any other pack I've had riding. the trampoline back creates the perfect amount of air to cool you off and not leave you soaked at the top of the ride, while the straps are also completely breathable. its got more pockets you can shake a stick at and the helmet carrier works great. all in all best bag for riding i've owned to date

I picked up a pair of these and my initial impressions were great, i liked all the improvements that were made compared to the original STH line. Wider base allows easier transition edge to edge with fatter skis the newly designed toe is better, and they are fairly light compared to others on the market. The only fault is that i still sometimes will find myself pre releasing this has always been an issue with salomons for me.

All in all the binding skis great and is nice and light.

If you are looking for a tent that has a bit more room than the typical 2 man backpacking tent but dont want all the extra weight this is the tent to get. with the 2 door 2 vestibule design it allows you and your partner to have their own space for gear and allows easy entrance and exit to the tent. It's a "freestanding" tent it has one pole making it very light weight as well as offering a fast pitch option allowing you to remove the body of the tent and set it up with just fly and footprint making it around a 2lb tent. which is ideal. The only downfall is that the two bottom corners of the tent will need to be staked out but i have yet to run into the problem of not being able to do this, rocks seem to work and i have also heard of people just using a trekking pole

So i have had this tent the whole summer and it has been hands down on of the best tents i've owned/used to date. I ended up purchasing the footprint to have the ability to use the fast pitch option. I have always wondered how this fast pitch option would work in storms and i got to experience that first hand with hail, rain and winds of 45-50 mph and was quite pleased with how it handled it all below is a small video of our trip, the double vestibule really adds the extra space to make things a bit more comfortable. Unfortunately we were not able to summit, but the experience was well worth it and it made for some good storm watching

I broke an elbow this past ski season and decided some elbow pads would be a must for mtb this summer. they are true to fit and rarely do i need to adjust them because of sliding purposes. They breath far better than i thought as well, making this some of the best protection i bought in a while.

And man i love it, hands down the best bag i have owned to date, love the combo between this and my therm-a-rest Neo Air sleeping pad, perfect combo to save weight and stay just as toasty warm. The only draw back i could possibly have is that it isnt a crazy spacious bag, but dont get me wrong it isnt to tight either. Being a side sleeper it is sometimes hard to get it all perfect but this certainly is the best i have found. zipper stays in place all the time with no snagging and the bag even has a handy pocket on the side to put essentials. All in all this is a great bag if your looking for something that is light weight and combos up with a sleeping pad (bag does not have insulation on back panel)
