Geoffrey's Bio

I am a Tennessee Native and am currently living in beautiful Salt Lake City. I completed a Northbound thru-hike of the Appalachian trail in 2012, grew up camping, hiking, climbing, biking, handling snakes(joke, maybe)and spending all my time in the mountains of East Tennessee. I ventured out West 6 years ago and spend everyday trying to get after it in the gigantic playground that is Utah. I look forward to discussing any upcoming (or past) gear related requests, questions, trips and/or just sharing my knowledge of the outdoor arena with you! I am on call 24/7, so feel free to reach out and I will look forward to connecting. We use the gear we sell, so if I am not available I will get back to you once I have returned from my latest adventure here in the Wasatch and beyond.

YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT 1-800-409-4502 EXT 4446 MONDAY - FRIDAY 9AM - 5PM OR EMAIL AT GCONNER@BACKCOUNTRY.COM

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

These pants are skinny through the legs and thighs but huge in the butt. I've tried quite a few of the BD pieces since they started making apparel and most I have returned or given to my brother due to weird fits. The pluses are they are stretchy and the gusseted crotch makes them ideal for climbing. However, until BD improves the fit on their apparel, these will be the last pair I purchase. I'll just stick to the Prana Bronson's as my go to casual/climbing pant for now.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I hiked the A.T. with a pair of Leki poles; I wish I had used these instead. They are great for distance hikes, steep hikes, and technical trail runs. Crazy light, not bulky, and the zpole design is amazingly convenient. When I do technical trail runs, I often need poles for the ridge lines/ steep descents but there will be stretches where poles are not convenient. I strap these guys to my pack and don't even notice that they are there. Only complaint is the handle, cork is a bit more comfortable. All in all, I am incredibly glad I picked these up.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

I have found my favorite shoe. I trail run, hike, and have ran 2 road/trail races this season in these shoes and have been incredibly stoked. They seem to fit a bit narrow compared to other models in Salomon's line, which is great news for me and I had to size them about a half size down compared to other trail runners I wear(Cascadias, Inov8 roclite). The endofit surrounds your foot in a hug of awesomeness and the quicklace has really grown on me. The outsole is great for hard trail and performs pretty well in rocky situations. The durability has really surprised me as they are really not showing signs of wear after constant abuse on pretty rugged terrain.

I'm sold on the Toe Sock!

I never thought I would try a toe sock, and yes, it was a little strange at first. However, after the first mile or so I was hooked. The fit is fantastic and the sock doesn't move on you at all. My toes were able to splay and align, fitting the design of my shoe like a regular sock doesn't allow. Needless to say, I can't wait to put on the miles wearing these.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am building up my rack and recently purchased this set to compliment my C4s and my partners TCUs. I love placing these cams, especially the yellow through red. They are solid, place easily, fit into awkward and small spots and fill in the gaps well where the smaller C4s don't quite work. The flexible stem is fantastic on every piece but the 6. It's floppy and really awkward to place.

Fit: True to size

I wear this super comfy mid weight piece as my base layer or a single layer when snowboarding, hiking, climbing, running, laying around the house, and even going out to the bar. It's extremely comfortable with a looser but not too loose fit. The offset shoulder seams and forward side seams are what really set this piece apart. I really love the length as well. I'm 510 175 and went with a Medium.
