Kayla's Bio

I was born in Utah, and grew up between here and Colorado in the desert and mountains. I've been telemarking for the past 12 years now, mostly big mountain. I also love to tour and ride park. When I get the lucky chance, I go out on the sled in the Uintas to find pow stashes and build booters and go so big and so fast.
When it's not snowing, I still enjoy being outside camping, backpacking, paddling, SUPing, and climbing. I have a 2 year old newfoundland who comes everywhere with us, and is outfitted in all of the best gear. So if you have any questions on dog gear, or getting your dog stoked on your sports, Camber and I would be happy to help!
As much as I love the snow, I'm stoked for the summer months! I'm getting a new mountain bike, as well as a fly fishing setup, getting excited to get out and explore more.

Follow me for updated reviews and news on all of these fantastic adventures! You may also contact me directly if you have any questions, I would be happy to sit down and chat with you:

Hi R G,
The Thermal Sentinel and Apex Bionic jackets are both softshells- so really great options for aerobic activities, or fall/spring weather to offer some added warmth. The Sentinel is completely windproof, while the Apex Bionic is only wind-resistant. The Inlux jacket will be the warmest of the three options you mentioned, although still not bulky! A softshell jacket would be a great option, although on colder days you may need to wear more than one layer. Unfortunately we are currently out of the Inlux jacket, but if you want a similar option, I would recommend the Aleycia Insulated Jacket!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I picked these up as a gift, and I'm now almost jealous I didn't get a pair for myself! They fit very well on a medium-large face, and the build is another solid one from Smith. The polarization is great too- it doesn't mess with your vision, rather it gives a bright clear picture. Plus they work great in a variety of conditions- climbing, hiking, boating, or casual street wear! Hands down, great solid model- would recommend!

Fit: True to size

I got this as a gift for a friend, and it ended up being perfect! He was looking for a light rain jacket with pit zips- and that alone can be difficult. The material is very nice- it's lightweight, stretchy, and does not sound nor feel like a trash bag. The waterproofing has been killer so far, and the zips plus the actual fabric offer great breathability/venting. The color looks great, and the zipper works smooth. He generally wears a size Large, and has longer sleeves- the Large in this model works perfect, by itself or over a slim jacket. Hands down one of the best vented rain jackets on the market!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a great standard piece- nothing too complicated nor too expensive. It's very easy and straightforward to use, and it does what it needs to do. Belaying on it is super easy, as is setting up a rappel. It does not have the grooves as the ATC Guide, which I was originally worried about, but I haven't run into a noticeable difference yet. The rope is still easy to catch, and easy to feed through. Overall, every climber needs a good solid piece, and I would highly recommend this one!

I have small-medium sized hands, and I hate having a chalk bag that's gigantic, but I also hate having to struggle to get my fingers in when up on a climb. This bag is for me, the perfect size. It hangs nicely on the hip, and fits a good amount of chalk. Plus the fleece-lining makes it that much more comfortable! If you are carrying loose chalk, some may puff out- the top does not close tightly. But overall, I really like this find!

Love it! It's nice and lightweight for summer wear, and the cut of it sits nicely- loose but not like you're wearing a trash bag. I generally wear a small in Billabong, and the small fits perfectly. Plus it has a pineapple- so you get compliments left and right. I'll for sure be buying the other color I love it that much- would definitely recommend!

This is an absolutely fabulous choice for all around climbing. The fit is very easily customized- and the Speed Adjust leg loops are really that- speedy! Easy to wear over bulky clothes or something slim because you can get that customized fit so quick. The gear loops are sturdy so far, I haven't had any issues hauling gear. I also really like that this model has a haul loop. Overall, the harness is quite comfortable as well- for climbing, belaying, rapping, or just walking around. As far as sizing goes, I am a slim lady- 5'2, 115lbs, I generally wear a 25 in my pants, and the size Small is my jam. Hands down would recommend this harness!

I've been using the CH line for years, and I dig it. It's easy to use, easy to scrape, and it makes you go fast for any sort of recreational use. The temp ratings are accurate, great range for all sorts of conditions here in Utah.

Hi there,
I would definitely recommend you go with the 185! With the early rise in tip/tail, you'll still have a lot of effective edge underfoot to hold turns without slipping out. The little extra length will be a tiny adjustment, but overall the 185 will be more stable and a super fun choice for out east and the trips out west too!

Fit: True to size

It's absolutely killer, this jacket does everything you could want! It fits true to size (I am 5'2, 115lbs and I wear the size S), it looks good, and best of all- it actually does keep you dry without creating a swampy environment internally.
I took this on a trip in which I encountered an unexpected 2ft. snowstorm, and had no other hardshell jacket with me. I ended up wearing this in the snow, through a snowball fight, and a wrestling match in the pow- and it kept me dry. Since then, I've also walked around town in a steady rain, and still ended up dry. The jacket even breathes, and it doesn't sound/feel like you're wearing a plastic garbage bag!
Hands down, I love this jacket, and I recommend it to any lady who needs a good looking functional jacket that packs down!
