Native to Montana I love the outdoors and exploring the globe. My favorite seasons are winter and spring for my favorite sports snowboarding and road biking. I frequent the Wasatch for daily getaways and photograph everything along the way.

Fit: True to size

This shirt is great for those cooler days where you are hiking and need to wick moisture. Perfect for longer hikes where you need to dry your shirt in lower temps. Lastly it protects you from the sun so you might as well buy it!

I love this tire because it offers more grip and tire than a slick. When you ride in multiple seasons this tire is definitely something to check out. It has a bit more rolling resistance than most but it is well worth it when you consider the longevity. Lastly I love the max PSI pressure!

I purchased the small and it is perfect for 1 road bike tube, 1 C02, a tire lever, and one small wrench. This is all I could ever see using this for as anything more you'll need to go up a size. Easy to attach and stays secure while riding!

This little tent is great for solo adventures when you know there isn't a chance of precipitation. The rain fly is some what dainty but in emergency will protect you from the elements. It is quick to set up as there isn't much to it. Keep one of these in your gear collection for those quick getaways!

This bad boy is very light and lets air rush right into your brain! I love fit and the easy adjustability. The visor has 2 modes and is not detachable which is unfortunate but doesn't take away from this product. Very lightweight and you'll barely notice this thing on your head!

There are multiple sizes to fit all but the Backpacking size is GREAT for long adventures where you want a pad but need to shave some weight. It is just long enough to hit the back of your knee and then let your feet hang off the pad. This size shrinks down for easy packing! Awesome for backpacking and still keeps you warm even though it's 2/3 of a pad!

This tent is tall enough for most people to stand in and enjoy a morning stretch! I love how simple it is to setup and how large and spacious it is for the price. It is decent in wet conditions but I wouldn't want to be in it during a monsoon! Very heavy but PERFECT for car camping when space isn't an issue.

This is the best bag for any warm weather camping. I have used this bag in 45 degree weather with no problem! It packs down very small and is great for warm weather backpacking. Anything under 40 degrees you will want a warmer bag, this is for your summer camping and is worth the $.

These are great for split boarders or anyone who doesn't like having huge poles hanging off their pack! Very lightweight and sturdy. I have used the normal non-carbon compactors and the carbon version. I love the carbon because it gives you a bit more stability before they bend on those steep faces!
