Jeff's Bio

I was born and raised in Utah and don't plan on leaving anytime soon. I currently live in Coalville and recreate all over Utah. In the winter I'm snowboarding at The Canyons Terrain Park and Snow Kiting in the open fields of Coalville, Park City, and Heber. In the summer I hang out all over Southern Utah while Camping and Canyoneering with my friends, and climbing in the Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons in the Wasatch Mountains. I love working at Backcountry.com and also don't plan on leaving anytime soon.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second year using this bottle and I think it is great my uses. During the summer when I go down to the Utah desert to do some slot canyons I fill this thing full of ice and the rest with water and it will last a good 48 hours before getting to room temperature. Did I mention I leave it in the hot car all day? I love my cold water so this is a great bottle! I hear I doesn't hold Hot stuff as long, but for my use I'm giving it 5 Stars!

The cap does have a Lifetime warranty through Hydro Flask, so If you ever drop the bottle and break the cap just contact Hydro Flask and they'll send you a new one for free!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I had one of the older versions of the Zipka with the 4 LED's which always stayed in my drybag in my canyoneering backpack and has come in handy many times in the canyons, until one day when I forgot to close the valve on my drysack and it was sitting in water for 2 weeks before I noticed it got soaked! I had to buy a new one (which ended up being this one) and it doesn't feel as quality as my old one, and doesn't look "water-resistant" in any way. I guaranty if it was raining while wearing this it would get inside and kill my light. the battery compartment door doesn't close tight enough and there is no rubber gasket to help keep the water out. You can actually see into the battery area through the little opening. Come on Petzl! You usually make quality lights but this one is a joke.

On the upside it is light and very compact and great for an emergency light that you can just leave in your pack or car and forget about it till you need it.

This helmet is super comfortable and looks great! The Blue is a little darker than the picture shows, but other than that, it is a well made helmet that will be so comfortable on your kids' head that he/she will almost forget they are wearing it! The Harness system fits under the back of the head providing a secure/comfortable fit so they don't need to be strangled by the chin strap.

This is a short review and demonstration of the features of Edelrid�s new belay device - the Mega Jul. In this video we demonstrate how to belay, lower and rappel with it. It is recommended to also watch Edelrid�s official tutorial video (http://vimeo.com/53332541) as well as to consult the manual before operating this belay device.
This video was shot on a Saturday at the Highlander Wall in Clear Creek Canyon, CO.

I've only used it with an iphone so I really can't answer your question there, but I can tell you that the person on the other end of the line does hear their own echo because the mic is right next to the speaker on this headphone, so if you are planning on talking on the phone with these, you will be happy, but the other person will get very annoyed.

I've had a chance to wear it out and about a bit. It's pretty comfortable. really light weight and adds a little heat on your core.
The only down fall is the padding against your back almost doesn't exist. Your back sits almost right on the plastic spine protection with the plastic rivets going right between the scapulas. But it should get the job done and on one I've sewn in a little extra padding. I think it'll work great!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I needed a better whistle for canyoneering besides the old ball whistle. This works great and is nice and cheap. Now to find a way to attach it to my helmet so it is easily accessible without it smacking me in the face...

I split and mounted my Signal Rocker Snowboard and it was easy and fun to do with the very informative How To Video located on this page! You can also go to YouTube and type in Voile Split Kit and the Instructional video comes right up! You will need a lot of tools to do this so dig into your dad's garage full of tools and get splitting! The mounts are super easy to put on with the sticker templates that tell you exactly where to drill. Can't wait to try out my newly split board out in the mountains of PC, BCC, and LCC in Utah!

The 3+ is not in this video, but the lens will have the same affect with the water.
I've noticed that lots of people have had concerns about whether to buy a HERO3 or to just stick with their HERO2. They are concerned about battery life, software issues, and water clinging more easily to the HERO3's flat lens as opposed to the HERO2's bubble lens. Here is a video showing what happens when the water contacts the flat lens to give you a nice visual of what happens to water on the flat lens.
