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 music 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

Fit: Runs large

I was looking for a nicer shoe to wear around and decided to pull the trigger on these. They are super comfortable, but they do run a bit big. I put a pair of my own inserts in them and they're amazing. They don't have any traction so don't wear them on a wet day.

Keep it classy.

If you've made it this far, just add this to your cart honestly.

You won't be disappointed. I've had every size of hydro flask and this one is my favorite. It may be a little large for the average person. Most of the time when I pull it out in class or in public I get some pretty funny looks because of the size of it.

Ice will last a few days in this bad boy, which makes it super convenient to just refill and always have cold water. This bottle has changed my life, haha I use it every day, and never go dehydrated.

If you're looking for a beastly water bottle to quench your massive thirst then BUY IT!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using my larger Hydroflask for coffee and ice water, but decided I needed a separate coffee bottle. I chose this because of the wide mouth and the ability to add the flip lid. It's perfect! I've used it EVERY DAY since I bought it, and haven't noticed any flaws or defects.

Keeps my coffee nice and hot for my 10 hour shifts, perfect for work/school, but my favorite thing is leaving it in the cold car while I'm skiing and coming back to piping hot cup of coffee.

I highly recommend this bottle

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

My father has always worn visors for as long as I can remember. I had to give him this visor to represent the brand! It's one size, so he had no trouble with the fit. It looks great, but the white does get dirty fast so keep that in mind.

Fit: True to size

My mother is a teacher and needed a red shirt (her school color) that didn't have a flashy logo or text on it. This shirt was perfect. The polyester/cotton blend is great for moisture/odor resistance. It's also very breathable.

I was looking for a new pair of socks to give to my mother for her birthday.She has always been a bird-lover and I grew up to the constant sounds of chirping in the household. Once I came across this pair of socks it was a done deal. I love smartwool and this merino/nylon blend is perfect for day to day use. Super flexible, breathable, and durable.

Fit: Runs small

I needed a new bifold wallet and came across this Brixton one. It is very clean, and stylish. I typically don't have a lot of cash on me so the small cash pocket is perfect. If you have more than a dozen bills it's going to be to small and you'll have to shove it all in. This wallet is perfect for me though.

I purchased this for my little nephew to wear. It's a good combo, you get one with stripes, and the other is a vest/tie print. He looks like a little rockstar. My sister said that the fabric is high quality and fits great.

Fit: True to size

I love wearing a hood and was in the market for a nice shirt to wear to casual events. This shirt provides a hood, but also that classic button down look. Hurley did not disappoint me. I typically wear Mediums, but in Hurley shirts I sometimes get a Small just to get a more slim-form-fitting look. It fits just fine and looks great. I've been getting a lot of compliments on this, I have the slate black one.

I was looking for a new pair of comfortable slim pants in black and came across the Volcom Vortas. I was a bit hesitant on the size because I typically wear 32x32 but I decided to go with the 34 just to provide a little more room. They fit great, they're a little big around the waist for me (which I expected) but I wear a belt constantly anyway.

Super breathable, lightweight, relaxed fit, and a durable button.

Fit: Runs small

I was looking for a new shoe to take up to Canada where I stayed in the woods by a glacier river. I wanted something super breathable, lightweight, and waterproof. You can't go wrong with GoreTex. The shoe is very durable too! They run a little tight in the toe-box but after a day of heavy use I had no more problems.

Personally, I wasn't too fond of this meal, it was a little rough on my stomach... That being said, two of my good friends that I was traveling with LOVED this meal and ate it quite often. They said it was fine on their stomach which leads me to believe it's just me.

The taste and texture of this meal is incredible! I've tried a handful of Mountain House's Dehydrated Meals, but this one was my all time favorite. The sauce is rich and creamy and the beef isn't super chewy. If you're already on this page looking at this GET IT!

You won't be disappointed.

Fettuccine Alfredo has always been very prominent in my diet and I was stoked to try these out. It tastes really good, but could use some dehydrated onion / onion powder just to give it that extra flavor. This is one of my favorites from Mountain House and is a close second to their Beef Stroganoff
