Jeff Guest'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.

This is my first Mammut rope, and it is awesome! It flaked smoothly right from the factory, and it had no tangles or twists. The rope feels great! It's not too stiff even though it's a dry core. I took a few lead falls on it with trad gear and the falls were soft! Great off the pro and on me! I love this rope! It also started to rain on the last day, but the rope held up just fine. I highly recommend it!

The Bolsa is a great rope bag. Its design is simple, and easy to use. It makes clean up a breeze.

Pros: The bag is simple to use. To clean up the rope, simply grab the corners and slide the rope into the bag. The tarp keeps the rope from getting dirty on the ground and like the rest of the bag, it is made out of a good solid material. I bought the bag after borrowing it from a friend who also had good reviews for this bag.

Cons: The straps are thin without a lot of padding. Especially considering it sole purpose is to carry a heavy rope. Another con is that its sole purpose is to carry a rope, there aren't any other pockets or straps on it anywhere. If I were in charge of making the next generation, I'd add padded straps across the waist, and pockets and daisy-chains for strapping and carrying or at least separating out gear, but I guess this is a minimalist rope bag, and there are other bags out there that have zippers and daisy chains, but they cost more.

These aren't your normal orange lenses. They pop so much more than the G30 and Persimmon lenses. The contrast is really amazing and makes everything so happy. The greens pop really bright. So far I've just used them for driving in low light conditions, and surprisingly they don't work as well for that, but they aren't meant for low light driving. They are meant for trail riding. I wouldn't suggest wearing these in super sunny conditions, but I would highly recommend using them for trail riding.

P.S. I didn't care much for the "All Day" lenses. I didn't notice much of a difference between the All Day and the Black Iridium, except the All Day lenses don't block out as much bright light.

Description: very nice
I like this harness a lot. I have only used it for repelling so far and it has been great! Very comfy! The elastic legs are a lot nicer than expected. They hug your legs, and you never have to adjust them!

I love this hoodie! It's a nice thin materiel that makes it nice to wear in the spring and soon to be summer nights. I like the hood and pocket material, it's almost like a silky feel! It fits really nice and close as well! I will definitely be buying another one!

This is only of my favorite jackets, the color is great, I got the snake. It is a thin jacket but warm! Nothing worse than having bulk getting in the way. The only complaint I have is it doesn't have wrist gaiters, I love that about my other jacket. The Velcro straps never stay on any Jacket. And when you are slashing through powder there is nothing worse than getting it in your gloves.

The switchback bindings! This is my second pair! I have them for three of my snowboards! The flexible playful feeling you get from these bindings is amazing! It gives you that little bit of extra movement almost like the feeling of skateboarding except for the whole feet leaving the board! Though they are flexible they give you the stability for the powder as well!

This is my third pair of switchback bindings! I love the durable plastic feeling of them, it really gives you a nice feel for the board as well as it gives you some extra mobility of the ankle. I didn't realize what a big difference the bindings made until my friend and I switched boards for a run. The fact that you don't need a screw driver to mount the bindings to the board is a huge win in my book! I never have to worry about needing a screwdriver when I am far away from the lodge. The Helgasons out did themselves with their amazing bindings! I would recommend them to anyone!

I love this scraper! The triangle shape gives you way more leverage over the rectangle scrapers and has 3 good sides instead of 2. I like the little edge also the helps you get the last residue off the edges of your board.

The board is very playful and fun! The banana shape of the board makes pressing a breeze in the park as well as floating on powder without having to constantly focus on keeping your pressure on your back foot. The reverse camber isn't my favorite, I feel like it doesn't give the freedom going edge to edge. Like it's always catching on something for traction. All in all it's a great board for both the park and for powder. I'd definitely buy one again!

This is a very interesting style of tent with only 3 contact points on the poles. It helps lighten it up though! I refuse to buy a tent that is not freestanding because half the time I camp in areas where you can't get a stake in the ground. You can use rocks to pull out the corners, or even through some of your stuff in the corners to prop it up. I love how this 2p tent has 2 doors and 2 vestibules! I love storing my gear in one vestibule, and getting in and out on the other side.

It's highly recommend to use a footprint with your tent so you don't wear out the waterproof bottom of your tent or poke sticks or even rocks through it. This footprint was made well and fits great! It even has special hooks/clasps to fit correctly on your tent. Yes, it adds weight, but it's better than waking up to a pool of water in your tent on a rainy night!

BEST BELAY/RAPPEL DEVICE EVER!!!

I have used a lot of ATC's over the years for canyoneering and my favorite for years has been the Wild Country VC Pro II... and then the made it better!!! The Pro Lite is the exact same, but has some holes cut out in the side walls to shave some weight. The huge benefit of the VC Pro II/Pro Lite over other brands/models is that downward curve in the side. The benefit to that is if you are on a high rappel or a skinny rope, you can hook up on the ribbed side for more friction when you get near the bottom of the rap, but move the rope off to the side on that smooth downward side for less friction when starting your rappel. ATC's also don't twist the heck out of your rope like 8's do. I have gone through lots of the ATC's and the ribbed area is the first to wear out so you don't need to worry about the big holes in the side causing problems or failing on you. This is my go to Rappel Device for Canyoneering. LOVE IT!!!
