Heidi Brunner's Bio

"As for me, I am tormented by an everlasting itch for things remote." - Herman Melvile.

Live to travel, camp, hike, bike, climb, paddle and... wait for it... shoot stuff.

I road bike 5+ days a week. Bout 22-29 miles per ride.
Camp/backpack/hike once a week.
Climb a few times a month.
Paddle whenever I get the chance. River-guided last season... now I don't get to raft or kayak nearly as much as I want.

Sum up? I got me some wanderlust... :)

Bought the go-light as a base layer. I got a medium (I'm 5'6 and size 4) and should have gotten a small.
Regardless of sizing - I wouldn't have kept the product. I got the shirt in white and it was incredibly see-through. To the point that it looks silly and limits the uses. I wanted a light-weight base layer - but it's so light it seems like slip-type-fabric.
I can't comment on performance - but the cut/fit/material alone made me unwilling to find out about performance.
Sticking to MHardware and Arc'teryx for quality design and function base layers.

Bought the white in Small. I am 5'6 and a size 4, normal torso length. I had to lengthen the shoulder straps all the way and it still seemed to cut into my armpits from shoulder-strap-pull. The seam across the chest creates an odd profile and seemed to flatten and droop the chest (no bueno). It was a little short, despite the fully lengthened straps and rather loose around the stomach.
I have a North Face tank with a similar cut (back triangle cut-out as well) and it fits a million times better (The North Face Vaporwick Cami).
Fabric is good - but the cut/design kills it. Returned it.

Ruffwear PFD

Using the size small for my shih-tzu's (around 9 pounds each). The flotation is so high on their backs that you have to adjust the collar piece a bit or they struggle to keep their heads out of the water (the back floats so high that it pushes the noses down a bit).
The best dog PFD that i've found so far, despite the little fit issues. Trying them out on some river trips this summer - we'll see how they do!

Love these hydration tabs. I won't ride without them - and I'm finding myself using them at other times now as well (hiking, wandering around town, etc).
I don't do well with sugar - these tabs are NOT too sweet and have a good flavor. I love the citrus and the kona. They work very well - I seriously wouldn't consider riding without them now.

This is the ONLY gel I've been able to find that tastes okay and doesn't contain a bunch of crappy sugar. Hammer gels have kept me from bonking on countless occasions. My favorite fuel - I really won't even consider doing any kind of lengthy ride without these gels. I love the Vanilla and can stomach the espresso if I need the extra kick of caffeine. GREAT energy.

I have this jersey in the black/white style. Cool look. I really like the fabric - my favorite sleeveless jersey over all my others. Good pockets, good fit, great fabric. Wore this for the Moab Century and it was perfect. Castelli always runs small so get a larger size. I normally wear small and I have to get medium's in Castelli.

I love the light weight of this helmet - great look too. It doesn't lay flat across the forehead like most helmets, instead it has a couple points that it rests on. They always leave imprints on my forehead and although it's not terribly uncomfortable - it's annoying to have these big impressions on my head after I ride. I bought a small in the men's instead of getting a women's helmet. I'm going to have to jerry-rig some extra padding up front for future long rides.
