Julia Niles's Bio

Julia Niles will light you up with her big, goofy smile. She is a all about adventure and uses climbing and skiing to take her her all over the world. She guides in Jackson Hole, Alaska, and South America- and is one of the few women certified by the AMGA as a rock and alpine guide. Two years ago, diagnosed with a lung tumor, she was not sure she would be able to continue her alpine climbing and guiding. Her doctor said she would lose a lung. But she found a great doctor who saved half of her lung and her passion for climbing picked her right back up after surgery. Less than six months later, she became the first woman to on-sight, solo the Grand Traverse of the Tetons in a day. Her passion continues, and she has been traveling the world climbing and skiing since. She is thrilled to be part of backcountry.com.

This has changed backcountry sleeping forever. I have serious hip issues- too much pounding up and down mountains with guide packs, so I have a hard time sleeping on thin pads. I've used this now for four months and have had no holes and no other issues other than the ones that appear in my sweet dreams. I can't say anything bad about these pads. They even come with some repair glue.

I love this product- finally I get to replace my fuzzy homemade version of this. Its use: when you are climbing something gnarly- you don't want a wrist leash to make it difficult to place your gear, but if you drop a tool, you would be up ****'s creek. You can even rest on this in an emergency. The swivel makes switching tools easy. And you can just drop one and let it hang while you do other more important things.
