Jess's Bio

I love all things outdoors & try to explore all the wonderful things Utah has to offer as much as possible. And of course I always make sure I have some killer gear to make the adventure as fun as possible.

And I live for POW days. ;o)

I'm a HUGE fan of Teeki pants. I love that the fact that they are 100% made in the USA & made from recycled plastic bottles.

The other awesome thing about this pair of pants in particular is that you can't get them anywhere else, but backcountry.com!

The Day Trader is one of the most fun boards I've ever ridden. It feels very stable thanks to flat camber between the feet. Since it's set-back & has some early rise kicks - you get the feeling of rocker... espeically on those much loved pow days!

I've had countless days on this board & it's still just as fun as it was the first day I strapped into it.

I've been a big fan of the Sapphires & never thought I would wear another boot. And then the Ritual came along... This boot is AMAZING!! So incredibly comfortable & the speed zone laces are the best. I love that I can adjust my laces at the drop of a hat (and with gloves on!) - this is especially helpful for long days touring.

To help increase the life of my boots - I always take the liner out after a day of riding to ensure they dry completely & don't pack out as fast.

My only criticism of the boot is that the foot bed is too thick - causing reduced space in the toe box. After a few uncomfortable days of riding & realizing it wasn't packing down, I put in foot beds from my old pair of boots & the problem was solved!
*Note - everyone's feet are shaped differently, so this may not be an issue for everyone.

I highly recommend these boots.

I love a winged highback, unfortunately, they're hard to find in a women's binding. Thankfully, Burton came to the rescue with the Sidekick. This is a great step up from the Lexa's that I've loved & used for many years.

I was lucky enough to ride a demo pair for most of last season & they held up phenominally for all those long days on hill. The re:Flex baseplates ensure I get the true feel & flex of my board.

Highly recommend these bindings!

I love this tote! I use it everyday to bring my computer & other stuff to/from work. It's got two larger fleece lined accessories pockets, pen/pencil sleeves & a mesh pocket that holds my phone perfectly!

I've used this bag almost everyday for the last 4 months & it still looks as good as new! This is definitely a high quality, good looking bag.

Like all other reviewers - we were tired of collars becoming stinky & worn out quickly from all the water time our pups get. So glad we dropped in on this one for our boys!

I'm a big fan of the tag "quieter" and the fact that there's a separate hook for the leash. Like others' have mentioned, it takes a while to 'round out' (we're still waiting), but the pups don't seem to notice.

Very happy with this purchase!

What's not to love about Teeki & these pants?! They're environmentally conscious, amazingly soft & super flattering!!

I find myself wearing these for a variety of activities - yoga, gym classes, dog walking, errand running, lounging & so much more! They are so fun to wear & I ger compliments on them all the time!

I wear a size M in most workout pants & these are no exception. The are very true to size!

Love these pants. They're super cute, fit great, & hold up through intense workout sessions (though I wouldn't want to run in them).

But one of the best parts is - they are resistent to dog hair!! Nothing is worse than having your dark workout pants covered in yellow lab hair - but with these it just brushes right off - no lint roller needed! Any of you with 4-legged friends will know exactly what I'm talking about & why this is so awesome! I will definitely be purchasing more Teeki Pants in the future!

If you looked in my sock drawer, you'd see it was filled with FEETURES! socks. They provide a great amount of support without being uncomfortably tight. I love these for running, but find myself wearing them with casual shoes for work as well due to their high level of comfort.

They're extremely breathable & hold up great in the wash. I bought the Olympian Blue & love the color!

I ordered the Bright Mango color & it is super cute. I was pleasantly surprised at how cute the sports bra is on its own. They come attached with little string loops, but once you cut those - you have two separate pieces. Even if you plan on wearing the tank & sports bra together, I would recommend cutting the loops as it helps the tank sit better.

The only thing I wish is that the sports bra had removable padding in order to hide any 'coldness.'

I'm 5'7", 135lbs & a 34c & the Medium fit me perfectly.

The stitching detail is great in theory, but it provides some odd lines when you're wearing them & I could definitely feel the seams as soon as I put them on. The material was much thinner than I would expect or want from a fitness/running tight.

The sizing was very consistent with other fitness tights. I'm 5'7", 135lbs & the medium fit as I would expect.

Unfortunately, I had to return these as I needed something for running & high-intensity activity. But they may work great if you wanted these for casual wear or mellow yoga classes.

I really wanted to like these, but the material felt very thin & wasn't as tight as I would've liked from a fitness pant. I ordered these primarily for running & high intensity gym classes, but they did not seem like they would hold up well with a lot of movement.

If they were a little bit thicker with a little tighter fit, I would have kept them. They may work great for a lower intensity workout or yoga, but I had to return them since that's not the type of pants I needed.

I'm 5'7", 135lbs & ordered a size Medium which fit great.

Pants that Make a Statement!

These pants are not only really cute, but high quality & really functional. I wore them to a high-intensity body-combat (kickboxing/aerobics) class and weightlifting class & they moved great with me the entire time. I didn't have to worry about them sliding down & revealing anything while doing squats, lunges, etc. They also have great coverage & didn't go sheer during those squats either!

My only wish is that they were single size instead of split sizing. I ordered a M/L since I wear a size 6/medium in everything else (I'm 5'7" & 135lbs) & have a booty & muscular thighs. They were a little bigger behind the knees, but not big enough to try sizing down.

The prints are so fun, you can wear them with just about anything! I ordered the Solar System print & they look great with the Onzie Elastic Tank Top (http://www.backcountry.com/onzie-elastic-tank-top-womens).
