Jill Layfield's Bio

I'm originally from San Francisco. I moved to Park City eight years ago to live in the mountains and work for Backcountry.com. The San Francisco Bay Area has some amazing climbing (the picture to the left is the Egg at Stinson Beach) but Park City/Salt Lake City has so much more to do outside -- and no fighting traffic to take advantage of all there is to do. My dogs are especially happy in Park City -- no tics and no fleas!

I love to ski, climb, mountain bike and trail run. There are about 300 miles of single track right out my back door...

I'm pretty sure I have the best job in the world - I'm the CEO of Backcountry.com. Have feedback for me? Hit me up at CEO@backcountry.com.

I'm addicted to this brand. Everything they make is lux, interesting, comfortable and usable. From tops to pants they don't disappoint. The Alo Yoga Hail Top is no exception. Great material, great fit and super cute detail in the back.

The G-Lab Montana II Down Jacket is pure luxury. The construction and styling are beautiful. The color (I ordered dark mud which is a dark green) is gorgeous. I absolutely love the interior orange hang tag (for hanging your coat up at the bar). This would have been a great winter jacket for me but the XS was still too small. I'm tiny - 5'1'' and the arms/length was still a bit much on my tiny frame.

The New Balance Ice Tank Top is a super addition to your running wardrobe. The polyester fabric and reflective trim make it a great choice for day time or night time running. It fits great and works great. Runs true to size.

Every year I order a pair of EMU boots for my girls (4, 8). They are well constructed, cozy, hold up great in wet weather and are super easy for the girls to throw on before school. I love the dark chocolate as they aren't black but are still dark and don't show dirt. These are must have for little girls with cold toes!

We've officially entered family dork land. I ordered the Fjallraven Greenland Winter Jacket first for myself, then for my husband (Christmas last year) and recently for back-to-school for my 8-year-old and 4-year-old. It's such a great jacket and works well for everyone. I love the waxed coating and the fleece lining. The
kids 4 was too big for my 4-year-old (but she's tiny). The 8 fit my older daughter perfectly and she loves it. Nice to have a coat for her in dark olive!

My daughter (aged 8) needed a new pair of trainers for school and I was thrilled to find the Columbia Drainmaker !!! Water Shoe. I didn't even realize they were a water shoe until I came to write this review. What a bonus as she's always jumping in puddles and has breathability issues w/shoes. These are a great shoe for kids and highly recommended..

This is a fantastic layering piece for going to/from the gym. It's well made and fit well. The back is transparent and such a cute design. I would highly recommend adding the Alo Yoga Mirage Top to your yoga/workout wardrobe.

I use these for running and mountain-biking. I got them in blue, and they look pretty slick. They work as both casual and sports shades. Good balance between wind and sun protection, and ventilation. Nice and light. Very comfortable, with not too tight a fit (sunglasses that squeeze my head tend to give me headaches). Usual top quality Julbo optics. The only downside for me was that the arms are completely straight, and I found that the glasses would eventually start to slide down my nose. Spent a few minutes with a hairdryer to put a slight bend in the arms, and problem solved.

...but I've cut myself off at two colors. The Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece Pullover is addictive comfort (I want to wear it constantly). The construction is fantastic and the material so comfy and the colors so vibrant. This is a perfect go-to fleece and would be a perfect gift.

I purchased the Billabong Mermaid Rashguard for my eight-year-old daughter and she was so excited. She loves the design and the fit. I love that it keeps the harsh sun off her precious skin. You can pair this with any bottom so it's very versatile. Great piece for swim fun!

There is zero chance I'd wear the L Space Seashore Cover-up Dress as anything but a cover-up for a bathing suit. It's very sheer and short. With that being said, Lacey looks great in how she styled the dress with boots! I'm 40 so that would definitely not be a look I could pull off. However, as a cover-up I'm trilled with the Seashore dress. It's sheer in just the right way and the fabric is super light-weight.

I agree with all the other reviews of the Free People Roller Crop Denim Pant. These are a fantastic addition to my extensive jean collection. I ordered the Lou Blue and love the color. The wash is great and the fit is perfect - fitted but comfortable. I also like the ability to roll at the ankle for a shorter look. I'm 5'2' 115 pounds and ordered the 27.

This is an exciting new brand on Backcountry and I'm thrilled with my first two purchases: the Aura tank and the Web tank. Both are soft, well fitted and interesting designs. They both perform well in weight training, cardio and barre classes.
