Joelle Raynes's Bio

Backcountry.com’s Gearheads are your instant connection to gear knowledge. They’re passionate outdoor experts hell-bent on helping you find the right ski, saddle, or pro.

Here is some information about me. I moved to SLC from West Virginia in summer 2009. Moved here to experiencing the "world's best snow" and found much much more! I am overwhelmed with the climbing, hiking, snowshoeing, snowboarding, and backpacking this state has to offer! In the winter time, I am hunting for the white stuff, I typically ride Brighton resort and slack-country. Looking forward to my first split board season this coming winter! In the summer time, I enjoy anything outdoors, you can usually find me backpacking in the Uintas every weekend!

I wear this shirt before and after working out. The fabric is fairy soft and the fit is loose. I grabbed the XS and it's defiantly a bigger fit. I usually wear with a shoulder showing and the sleeve falling down my arm. My only wish is that this shirt didn't have the zipper in the back. With the shirts loose fit, I feel the zipper is unnecessary. Overall I really like this shirt!

I really love all the Patagonia Nine Trails products, I love the soft, fast drying material and the true to size fit of these products. I'm 100 pounds and 5'2 in height and I purchased the XS small. The sizing is perfect so I defiantly think this product runs true to size. I've worn and washed these shorts over + over again, the durability seems very promising! So far, I'm really happy with this purchase. If you like the nine trail shorts, be sure to check out the skort version!

This water bottle is your typically plastic bottle. What's really nice about this bottle is the Competitive Cyclist logo and that you are able to freeze this bottle. I love the freeze feature on those really hot summer days. I've had this bottle for a long time and I haven't had any leaking issues, it still works great and is a go for my biking hydration!

I purchased these Vans Shady Lane sunnies as a backup pair in my car. I'm so glad I made these purchase, they have came in handy so many times. These fit great to my petite face shape and are super adorable on the face. I love the colors of the sunnies, they are nice, bright and bold! I've dropped these sunnies multiple times on the gravel and pavement and still I haven't seen any scratches on the lens yet. Overall, it was a great purchase!!

The size of this purse is really why I love it, it fits everything I need for the day. The main compartment is big enough to hold a large wallet and a few other small items. There is also a small zipped pocket in the main compartment of the purse. There is a slit compartment of the purse when you open the flap, I love this little slit pocket for my iphone! I've had this purse for 4 months and my only complaint is that the faux leather is starting to fray and peel near the closer of the purse. It's okay now since it's just a small section which isn't noticeable when the flap of the purse is closed. Overall, I'm stoked on this purchase! It's been a great purse for everyday and the price is super affordable!

This Hello Apparel baby piece is my favorite gifts for all the little ones in my life. Besides being the most adorable pattern in the world, Hello Apparel prints on American Apparel so the fabric is incredibly soft and durable. Little ones melt my heart especially when they are wearing this cute short sleeve T-shirt. Sizing is true to size based on feedback I've received from moms. Most moms told me they actually loved the shirt so much they had their kiddos wearing them before they truly fit into the shirt, they would just tie a knot in the shirt to adjust. The moms also reported that the durability of this shirt was awesome, it held up lots of messes and washes. Great buy for any kiddo!

I love this basic, classic black Free People tank top. It's perfect for any summer day!

Sizing - I purchased the XS size in this tank and love the fit. I'm 100 pounds and 5'2 in height, the top is flowy and relaxed but very flattering. The length of this tank is long and sits right below my hips.

Design - I love the cut of this top, the side cuts aren't super deep which makes it easy to wear a normal bra but I'd suggest to wear a comfy cloth bra with this tank just to keep things comfortable! The tank has a little texture to it, it's ribbed which makes the tank a little more classy in my opinion!

I absolutely love these jeans. It's so hard to come across a pair of jeans that fit well, look good, and last more then a few washes.

Design - I love the cut and shape of these Free People jeans. The hybird of materials gives the jeans a super soft feel. I often find jeans to stretch out over the day's time but these jeans keep their shape all day long yet provide a lot of stretch.

Sizing - I am 5'2 and 100 pounds, I normaly wear size 0 in jeans. I purchased the size 25 and the fit is flattering. The length is a little long for my short legs but I just roll them up once and it's all good.

Quality - I've worn these jeans sooo many times since I've purchased and they've held up really well. They are not discolored at all and I haven't any frays. I believe these will be a favorite for a long time.
