Felix K'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.

------------------------------------
Here is some information about me. I was born and raised in the Salt Lake Valley, at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon. I learned to ski at age two and immediately started downhill racing. I raced for several years before my ski team lost our head coach. Since then I've been skiing as much as my school and work schedule allows. I also bike, camp, hike and run. When I'm not outside you can usually find me inside in front of a computer composing electronically or playing PC-games. I'm very outgoing and social, so don't hesitate to contact me. I’d love to answer your gear related questions. I can't fix user error.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 155 lbs

Fits basically every shape head and it still look good!

These are great for everyday use.
I'm a sucker for Smith sunglasses and have several - The Lowdowns are one of the better options out there for the price especially since they're also polarized.

Super sleek :)

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was in dire need of a goggle case - and this was the best bang for buck - it fits my smith I/OX goggles, the extra lens AND my neck gaiter. Super durable too.

All for under $10
Snag one! My roommate had to get one after he saw mine

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

I gave this to my father as a gift for skiing / and working outside.
He loves the look and feel of the glove. It's durable and comfortable.

The only reason I don't mark this 5 stars is because of the closure system. When undoing the velcro the glove has a tightening mechanism which can make it tricky to get off.

Though it does add stability, my father ended up cutting it out and prefers it this way.

I'm a very big star wars fan (check the hat in my profile picture) and as soon as my nephew was born I knew I had to instill my love for star wars into his life. This was the starting point.

Now he has the coolest shoes and gets complements on them daily.
Soon I will teach him the ways of the force.

Extremely versatile and durable, this product will last.
It fits and is perfect for when the temps start to drop.
Perfect for hiking / climbing / outdoor use - and has great range of motion.

The snap button waist is the only drawback I know of.

I've used this inside, outside, hiking, camping, walking through rivers, walking through snow, dirt, mud, etc.

It's not the warmest or most comfortable shoe, but it does exactly what I need it to, when I need it to. Perfect casual shoe to take camping or on trips - easy to slip on and wash.

This shoe can handle it all, it is super durable .

I've used this tent several times now camping and it fits perfectly. It can hold me, my pad, and my gear. It's a little tight and compact but I like that cozy feel - especially because of how little it weighs and how easy it is to set up.

You'd be able to fit two people in here without gear - but if you're going to stash your gear inside the tent you'd have to cuddle up ;)

Can't wait to take this on my next adventure.

Fit: True to size

I gave this to my mother for her birthday, she needed a hiking/trail running shoe - and one to wear on the colder/wetter days.

I chose this shoe for her because it's goretex, waterproof and breathable.

She loves it, and wears them every day now - even if she's not going hiking.

The one thing that stands this buff out from the others is the fact that you can stretch it horizontally but not vertically. Very versatile, comfortable, breathable - but will keep you warm if needed.
