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.

BEST BELAY/RAPPEL DEVICE EVER!!!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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!!!

My alltime favorite Canyoneering harness
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using my 1st Momentum Dual Speed harness for canyoneering for a few years now and it is still going strong! Granted I'm probably nicer to my gear than most people and I try not to grind it against the sandstone as much as possible. I love the Dual Speed buckles because they make the harness easy and quick to put on and take off, and I don't have to double it back which is a huge plus! If your buddy somehow forgets their harness (this has happened in my group), you have a broader sizing range in this 1 harness than in most others. The harness is comfortable and doesn't get as tangled up in itself as your standard single double back buckled harness. I love it so much that I bought a 2nd one for when I need to retire my tried and true current harness.

I need more of these!
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This case is my first experience with goggle cases. I decided to get 2 of these because my spare Lexan Moto lenses kept getting scratched and scuffed from all the vibration on long ATV rides in microfiber bag in my TNF duffel bag on the ATV. I am very happy with these cases! I have 2 of them (I wish I bought 2 more) and I keep my Oakley Mayhem Pro MX goggle in one, and my Oakley Flight Deck XM goggle in the other. The medium frame goggles fit perfect! I had the Oakley Airwave 1.5 goggle (very large goggle) and it fit tightly, but it did fit.

I would consider the case to be a medium rigid case. I wish it was more rigid, but overall I'm very happy with Annon Goggle Case!

Nalgene's last forever!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned multiple sizes and colors of Nalgene bottles throughout the years and have even done some torture testing to find out just how durable they are. I've shot one with a 12g Shotgun from about 20ft away and it took 2 direct hits with birdshot to put one tiny crack in it. There divots all over, and 1 very small crack that could probably be repaired.

I've also tossed one full of water off an 80ft cliff with no damage done! The cap bent and flexed throughout the tumble while the centrifugal force threw some water out, but no harm done until my friend decided to throw it as hard as he could multiple times on the corner of a cement stair while I wasn't around. That broke it eventually.

The thin plastic arm on the cap is the only part that brakes due to the user holding the weight of the Nalgene full of water for multiple days on end. Don't clip the loop to your backpack while hiking. That is a sure way to decrease the lifespan of the loop, but luckily new caps are cheap and easily replaceable! Also don't put anything besides water in it unless you want to be tasting hints of that other thing for the rest of your life!

Put some stickers on it and make it unique!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My POU (Purpose of Use) for this knife was to attach it to my canyoneering harness to have easy access to a knife when needed. It ended up being bigger and heavier than I expected. The plastic sheath was awesome and retained the knife well, and the knife fit incredibly well in the hand and came super sharp from the factory.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 110 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I owned the Rab Infinity jacket and LOVED it! I upgraded to this Infinity Endurance jacket and ended up not liking it as much as the older version. This version isn't as puffy (I like super puffy), it has the Pertex material which is loud and crinkly, and the hood is probably the biggest helmet compatible hood I've ever seen on a jacket! It does cinch down pretty well, but the elastic cinch cord that goes around the head is located right on my ears which makes it a little uncomfortable. I'm also not a fan of wires in the brims. Although this one is probably the best I've seen done, I'm still not a fan. I have a small head so the hood was a huge turn off for me.

On the plus side the bungee that cinches around the face tucks VERY nicely inside the collar so it's neat and out of your face. I was very impressed with the attention to detail and the clever design. I wish every jacket had that feature!

The jacket is incredibly comfortable, lightweight, warm, compressible, and I LOVE the Ebony colorway!

Wireless on my Moto Helmet!
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love listening to music while riding my ATV. I bought a cheap pair of Moto helmet compatible headphones that Velcro to the inside of the helmet. They work great but the cord going from the helmet to my pocket was always getting caught on things and was annoying when we stop and I take my helmet off. This ADAPT is exactly what I've been needing! I'm now cordless (I tucked pretty much all of the cord under the pads in the helmet) and have an easy access remote on the side of my head! The battery life is awesome as well.

Cons:
If wearing on the left side of the head the micro USB port is pointed in front of you, which means a whole lot of dirt is going to collect inside there, and the skip forward/back buttons are reversed and not intuitive. Skip forward is pointing behind you, and Skip backward is pointing in front of you.

You are supposed to be able to use Siri on the iPhone, but I can't figure out how. The instructions weren't very good on that one.

The Play/Pause button is recessed in the middle which is just fine with thin gloves or no gloves, but is almost impossible to find and operate if wearing winter gloves.

The volume goes down to a certain level of lowness before the music gets paused on the next volume down push. This is incredibly annoying to me because I like to hear my music and still be able to hear other people talk, so I wish the volume would go quieter instead of shutting off.

Over all this is an amazing product that I would definitely buy again!

(sorry for the crappy quality photo. I had to zoom in a lot to show the ADAPT on the helmet.)

More than just a ski strap!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I keep 4 of the 25" in my car in case I need to strap something like a 2x4 or a paddle to my roof rack. I keep 2 of the 16" straps on my ATV! Just last weekend I broke my winch button and was able to use a strap to hold the winch cable out of the way! There are so many uses! I'll probably buy a lot more and stash them places!

In my 10 seconds of testing (so far) I think I like the Premium a little more than the Ultralight. While I like the lighter weight and compactness of the Ultralight, I think the Premium is more comfortable to sleep on with the extra fabric on top. I think the Regular size is perfect for camping. The Large is to big in my opinion and adds weight. The little bit of stretchiness in the fabric of both UltraLight and Premium Pillows makes the more comfortable than any other inflatable pillow on the market. Both of these are by far the best inflatable camping pillows I have tried!

This is the lightest weight tent that I own. It weighs 2lbs 7oz, but if you leave the fly behind you can get it to 2lbs. It also has a vestibule which is mandatory in my tent selections as well as free standing and has 1 pole that holds up the whole thing.

Beware, I am 5ft 6in and I can sit up in the tent and have my head wedged into the top of the roof. I'm

I would reccomend this tent to anyone who needs a lightweight backpacking tent. This will be lighter and more versatile than using a Hammock.

I bought this pad for when I go backpacking. I inflated it once just to see what it felt like. It is a pretty comfortable pad, but has no insulating value. I will only be using this pad for backpacking trips where I try and shave off as much weight as possible.
It is relatively quiet compared to the noisy Therm-a-Rest Neo Air which my friend has nicknamed the "sunchips bag" because it is so loud.

Update:
I have since slept on this pad in 30�F temps and I could feel the COLD pad. I recommend using this for summer nights only. Otherwise you will get cold. If you are looking for something with a little more R-Value I would recommend the Exped UL 7M. Same comfort, more warmth.
