Jane Hwang's Bio

My love of the outdoors came from skiing in Utah at Alta Ski Resort every weekend with my dad. I started when I was 5 and haven't quit. I also spend my time Climbing A LOT, camp, hike and travel with my two favorite people in the whole entire world my boyfriend (GURU: Grant Kates) and our puppy Yuki.
Traveling is another passion of mine. I love wandering and getting lost in new cities and places. I have lived in Italy and Brazil. I have been all over Europe, South America and Asia. I am always looking for new adventures.

What a great piece. I love how it has an open back as it keeps me cool during climbing. Doesn't have a built in bra but gives you an opportunity to show off a strappy sports bra :D However the color is not black at all it's more of a dark grey but still an awesome top to have. Also the solid material is more of a sports jersey material so if you are not into that I wouldn't recommend it. Other than those expectations not being super clear I love this top!

looking for an amazing cozy around town or house sweater? This is it! I love this sweater. If I could wear it everyday I would. The merino wool is so warm and keeps you dry when walking in the snow and it's so soft that you will want to wear it around the house on a rainy or snowy day. I do have to say that it smells kinda funky out of the bag so give it a wash before wearing. FOLLOW WASHING INSTRUCTIONS. as it is still a technical piece that requires very specific care. DO NOT MACHINE DRY HANG DRY :)

Yeah Dakine makes outerwear and it's phenomenal! I have these bibs and they are perfect for touring in the backcountry. My jacket doesn't have a powder skirt so I have been in dire need of bibs. they keep the snow out and me warm and dry. The Goretex is awesome and is keeping me dry even in wet storm days. The full side zips are nice for hot days and also the drop seat makes it super convenient to go in nature when it calls :) I highly recommend these bibs to any active lady out there looking to crush some powder in resort or in the backcountry. The only complaint I have about this bib is the sizing. SIZE UP! I normally wear a small and I couldn't comfortably move my legs or wear a decent base layer under it. So I got the mediums and they are long but it allows me a bigger range of motion and I can layer up in them for negative days. Also the lil buckskin color is SO PRETTY!

Look fabulous while toughing out cold weather. This infinity scarf will keep you warm and won't fall off either. no need for complicated knots or tying up just simply toss it on and you are all set to go. I got the burgundy color and it is gorgeous! I would highly recommend this item as a gift or even a treat for yourself.

There is a reason why we don't always have these around and it's because they are THAT AWESOME! Talk about the balacava that has it all! the face guard that can be folded down or up. the synthetic material that drys fast so it doesn't ice over AND full head coverage! Looking for an excellent stocking stuffer or something nice for yourself. TREAT YO SELF!

Looking for that perfect gift for the shredder in your family? What better gift to give than the ability to keep their sticks tuned and waxed at all times! This tune kit has it all! You can clean, sharpen, wax and scrape on the go or when you are done riding for the day. The bag is compact and is easy to take on the go and a great way to keep all your tools in one place.

It's dangerous to wear this scarf in public as you may fall asleep while wearing it! It's so soft and comfy that it feels like you are wrapped in a throw blanket. It's stylish and the navy color goes great with any outfit. It's a great gift and personal item and I would recommend it to anyone!

Every climber hits this plateau around V5 it just happens to EVERY climber. If you want to get better you have to facilitate your climbing with training. Professional climbers are professionals because they train for it. YOU HAVE TO DO THE SAME. This hang board was one of the first that I got and it helped me condition my fingers arms and shoulders so that I could push past my plateau. It's pretty reasonably priced and below is a link to a youtube vid on how to mount it without drilling holes in your walls :D

Seriously this company makes insulation look like magic! Their coolers keep ice for 4 days in 90 degree weather and now they make a mug that keeps things hot and cold for the whole day! I would highly recommend this for camping and day to day use!

Ever been on a lift and had your mom call to see if you are ok? but the wind chill is making it like -10 degrees and you really don't want to answer because it's too effing cold! WELL get these gloves and you'll never have to worry about cold hands and your phone. you might have to worry about battery life though...these gloves can't solve that problem BUT! on the bright side if you ever want to take a sick pic or video or post something on the GRAM in the cold these gloves will help keep those paws warm and keep you happy. I use them as a liner for my mittens when I am skiing and they are wonderful!

So if you love the caribou boot you'll love these. They are the Caribou but taller so that you can tromp through deeper snow with out fear of getting snow in your boots. They are lined with Sorels amazing felt liner so that you have extra warmth. Got these as a gift for my friend and she loves them! She is a size 7 across the board and the 7 fits her perfectly.

Got these boots as a gift and my cousin loves them! She lives up in the PNW and so she wears them during rainy days and they keep her both warm and dry. Sorel is not only about style but functionality as well so the leather does actually keep the wet out. However! these are not hiking boots so I don't try and use them for hiking. They are strictly a casual and around town boot. She wears a street shoe size 7 and the 7 fits her perfectly.

Looking for an awesome house slipper to wear on cold days in? these are the ones you want. Not only are they warm but they will last you a long time with the sole that they have. Got these for a friend as a b-day gift and she loves them! She normally wears a size 8 and the 8 fits her perfectly.

If you really want to win the heart of the outdoorsy person of the family get them one of these! Super versatile and amazingly comfortable. Ability to dump heat through the stretch panels makes it a great layer for active people. it can be dressed down or up for casual or semi formal events. You will look SO stylish on the mountain, in the office or around town. I got this one for my uncle and he is about 5'8" and around 170 lbs and he got a size large.

My Sister in law is currently in portland and it rains a lot there and she walks to work and didn't have a reliable jacket at the time. So I got her this for her birthday so that she could stay warm and dry on her walk to work. The jackets 3 layer goretex is not only going to guaranteed dryness but it also breaths so that it doesn't feel like a poncho and the sleek design makes it so that she doesn't look like she is wearing a garbage bag either. She is 5'9 and 120 lbs and got a size small.

I love sweaters so this one was a "must have" when I first laid eyes on it. It did not let me down. the material is so soft and the fit it loose and comfy. Not form fitting so if you don't want that don't get it. Also the side zips are nice touch but can come un zipped pretty easy. I got the wine color and it's SO pretty.
