Grace's Bio

I love to play. I grew up mainly in Salt Lake and have had access to some of the best places in the world. Right now I get to river guide in Grand Canyon during the summer and work in the hospital and at Snowbird in the winter so it's workin out pretty great. And, let's be honest, I've got a bit of a gear problem, so SAC and backcountry are perfect / trouble for me.

These shoes are great approach shoes! I tried on a bunch of different ones and these were the most comfortable. They are comfy enough that you can wear them around, but stiff and aggressive enough that you can wear the on some technical approaches. I usually wear a 7 - 7 1/2 and I got the 7s. My toes are right up against the end but if I tie the laces tight it's just right and I like them to be more snug than loose. Over all they're great shoes! I've gone on several adventures in them and they're standing up to use just fine.

Pretty sure I've worn this jacket everyday for the last 2 weeks since I got it. I love the way it fits and looks. I have the black one and it's pretty shiny and I kinda feel like cat woman, but as far as I can tell, there's nothing wrong with that. The only thing is the sleeves are pretty long. They do have the thumb catch and a hand covers but for everyday use when you don't need to be covering your hands, they're a little long. Other than that's is a great thin insulation layer for pretty much any activity.

This bag is really big and nice and the whole inside is really easily accessible, and I'm pretty sure it's really durable, but it is definitely not waterproof, like river worthy waterproof. It'd be good in the rain or a little bit of water, but the zipper is not waterproof and this bag could for sure not be submerged. But for hauling gear and keeping it pretty dry in most conditions, it's going to be great!

I've got to be honest. I've never thought these type of boots are very flattering or attractive. but these were given to me as a gift and they are amazing! They're seriously the most comfortable boots for everything. I've worn them a ton since I got them. The only thing I didn't like about them is once I've worn them a lot the sides above the buckle kinda turn out, but I think it's supposed to be that way.

I'd heard that if you were in between sizes you should size up. I'm a 7 1/2 and I got an 8 and I feel like they fit well at first, but they do pack out a little and I think a 7 would have been a little tight at first but I think in the end they may fit better. But they're so comfy I just can't complain about them at all.

Love this pack!

This pack has got it all. It's great for biking, hiking or whatever. It's big enough that you can fit a whole outter layer of clothes and a meal or two and still have enough room to have the bladder full. All the little features, like straps on the bottom for your chin guards that tuck away when you're done with them are awesome.
The one thing I don't like about it is the mouth piece for the hydration pack. You have to pull on it while biting on it to get it open and you have to do use your hand to push it to lock it closed. And in Utah most of the rides you end up getting sand in everything which makes it even harder. But other than that I love the opening of the bladder, it's really easy to fill and clean. And the whole pack is great!

4 pair and counting....

It's true, I'm an addict of sunglasses for sure. I am obsessed with wearing them whenever it is even somewhat sunny. My first pair of Methods were given to me 5 years ago and due to me loosing them and not taking care of them and getting them too scratched, I've needed to get new glasses, but I keep coming back to these. They're big enough that they block a lot of sun, but they're not too Hollywood. Also, I really don't like it when glasses sit on my cheeks and these don't at all. The super methods do and get foggy really easily, but these are great.

Soft, fleecy goodness!

This fleece has come on almost every trip with me since I bought it. It's so soft and comfy and I love the hood and zippered pockets. I did burn a hole all the way through the pocket just by getting too close to my stove. Someone forgot that fleece is really melty. I still wear it and just don't use that pocket because it's great. Not really wind-proof but it's not supposed to be so I guess it's OK.

These go everywhere!

In the picture these look like they've got a pretty visible, shiny floral print on them but in real like you can barely see it, but I like it. They are really soft. I love the fabric. I work as a river guide and they have a couple snags on them but I'm pretty hard on my stuff, so I think under normal wear and tear they'd be fine. They do get a little loose when they're wet but I like them a little looser, so I still think go with whatever size you'd buy normally. They're great for hiking and everything even when they're wet unlike others that you have to deal with chaffage. Overall, they're great.

Stylie puffy!

It's hard to find puffy coats that look stylish and don't make you look huge and this coat is great at both of those. I liked the ones with color but they didn't have my size but black is always good. I wasn't sure about the shiny but turns out I really like it, so don't let that turn you away. It's really warm and I am counting down until it gets cold enough to wear it!

Pretty durable

These capris are pretty comfortable and good for hiking. They're not as stretchy as some others I've tried which I do really like for climbing, but they're usual Arc'teryx quality so they're good durable fabric and construction. The pockets are kinda weird though. There's one on the front that is not very big and it's right at where your hip bends so it's not too comfy to have anything in it. But other than that, they're good pants.

Really great light weight

It may look like I'm really cold in this picture, but it's just because it was an unusually cold evening in the Grand Canyon in June and none of us were prepared. This shirt was the warmest thing I had and it was good. It's thinner than I thought it was going to be but it fits really well and is perfect when you just need a little more than a T-shirt, or just a layer under a fleece or something. It's great too because it doesn't retain smell like regular capilene shirts tend to do.

Perfect for a smaller fit

I've had these goggles for a couple years and they are still great. Even wearing them over my helmet the strap hasn't stretched out. I don't like super huge goggles and these are perfect. I don't really have a small face, and these are some of the smaller ones that Smith makes, but I think these fit me pretty well and don't cut off too much periphery.
