Jeremy Jensen's Bio

On weekdays I'm just your run of the mill geek, watching whatever TV series I'm into, or playing whatever game is out. But come weekends I go out and hike the beautiful mountains and rocks of Utah with my fiancee and any friends up for an adventure.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased 2 of these for a trip out to Capital Reef to do several hikes. I really like the way this backpack was built. Lots of storage space/compartments. Also a nice large water bottle holder if 3 Liters isn't enough (used it for a large gatorade). This pack DOES have the quiklink connection system, so you can buy the insulated tube or other quiklink ready items. The support on the back felt nice. The water stayed cool throughout the hikes. I really like the easy access mesh pockets attached to the waste buckle. Can't stress the amount of pockets on this thing enough, loved the storage. Also, the materials on this backpack add no weight, very light material. Great for day adventures.

This helmet fits great, feels great, looks great. It fits my head nicely, and doesn't snag my longer hair. I chose this one because it will look good for both mountain or road. It also has already served me well when I went over the handlebars of my bike when doing downhill in Deer Valley. Great helmet, great price!

I purchased this for a day of hiking in Moab. When going to Moab last year (same time of year) my water tube would heat up within 5 minutes or less for extremely hot water, which is hardly refreshing. However with this awesome addition to my Antidote reservoir made it so it would take anywhere from 15-20 minutes before it got that hot. Generally the worst it got during that time was luke warm. So I'm absolutely pleased with this addition.

Just be aware that you are required to have a Quick Link on your reservoir. If you have a reservoir without Quick Link you need to buy the adapter. My Antidote reservoir was one that didn't come with quick link, and the adapter works fantastic.

If you have a non-camelbak brand reservoir, that uses camelbak sized tubing, you could easily throw the adapter on there and use this awesome tube.

I bought these in preparation for hiking Arches National Park. Specifically for wandering through The Fiery Furnace. They were very cosy on the soles, and kept a great grip throughout. The fit is nice as well. Heat doesn't build up in the shoe either, I didn't feel like my feet were melting at any point in the 93 degree weather. The shoe will feel a little tight at first, but after a week of wearing it forms nicely to your foot.

Due to the nice look of these, they can be worn as normal day shoes and still look very nice.

My only negative comment about these shoes would be that there is no padding of any sort above the toes so I had a few blisters. I think this could be easily made up for with slightly thicker socks.. however, wearing any kind of thinner sock you can feel the slight discomfort near the front towards your pinky toe.

I will be keeping these around and wearing them on all future hikes, just need cozier socks.

So far so good!

This is something I wasn't intending to buy. I purchased the insulated tube kit from Backcountry, and it turned out that kit required the quick link kit. Luckily it's fairly inexpensive. I was a bit nervous about the quality when placing my order, but after assembling it.. I feel confident in the future with it. No instructions come with it, but it's pretty straight forward. I've included a photo to illustrate what you will need to do. Grab some reliable scissors and make a nice straight cut on your old tubing. I chose to go about 3 inches up in the event I screw up the cut, or if leaking happens in the future. After the cut is made, slide the pieces in place. Just be sure you put the correct pieces as I've shown, otherwise you'll likely have a bad time if you get a new tube, or anything that uses the Quick Link feature. Once you've shoved the pieces in place (with little effort required), you're good to go! It's on there nice and steady and some quick hard tugs didn't even cause the tubing to nudge.

If I run into issues down the road, I'll report back. But so far I'm pleased and impressed with it!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these because they were said to keep hands warm down to somewhere around 25-35 degrees (can't remember the specific number off the top of my head). However, when wearing in 35 degree weather I felt they made my hands colder than going without them. It was almost as if it let cold air in and trapped it there.

On top of that, the XL fits more like a L, possibly even a bigger M.

I really wanted to like these gloves as I really liked the way the fingers could fold open for precision hand usage. The quality of the glove looks and seems nice, and I'm sure it'd be a great glove in slightly less cold of weather. But just have nothing positive to say otherwise.

Ultimately I ended up just taking my gloves off and not wearing them at all the rest of the day that I was going to depend on them.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these to wear on a recent trip to Korea and Japan. I wanted something thin but warm to keep my feet toasty in normal shoes while walking around the city, or seeing old buddhist temples. Not once did I even notice my feet getting cold.

I haven't tested them for boarding up in the mountains, so I can't speak with confidence how they are there. But in 10 degree weather wearing a pair of Chuck Taylor's I was warm (and normally those kind of shoes are far from warmth generators).

She absolutely loves the way it looks, feels, fits, etc. She said it's warm enough for a mildly chilly room, but doesn't do much in the outdoors for warmth. However, she hasn't tested it in any mild cold weather, just the harsher cold of winter time. For looks alone she would recommend this to any woman.

I bought these for my girlfriend as an alternative to tights for her to wear with dresses or skirts during the winter. Bought them in black, and she absolutely loves them and says they keep her nice and warm and fit perfect for her. I might end up ordering more pairs for her because she is so pleased.

She has also tried these under a pair of skinny jeans and was pleased with the unobtrusive look and feel. For an average height 105lbs woman, XS should do.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought one of these in the full zip in the past for my girlfriend. She was in love with it, and her mother was quite jealous. So when her mom's birthday came along, we decided this would be a perfect gift. But decided to go with this half zip instead so she had something slightly different.

Extremely soft, good for cold mornings (though not a replacement for a winter jacket), and nice to wear in cold buildings. It's a good level of thickness to the fabric also, and not too thick.

The zipper is good and reliable. Not had any issues with it getting stuck.

For sure would recommend this to anyone.
