Kayla's Bio

I was born and raised between the two beautiful states of Utah and Colorado, enjoying my time in the mountains, desert, and everything between.
I am a diehard skier from the start. I've competed in the big mountain circuit, and plan to again this season. I am a telemarker (13th season this year) on burly and fast skis. I prefer ripping big lines and hitting cliffs most days, but love riding park days and building booters in the backcountry. I also love touring!
When the snow isn't falling, I still love being outside getting after it. Rock climbing is one of my top summer pastimes- trad, sport, bouldering. Any sort of camping and hiking is always welcome, including a good backpacking trip. I also grew up running rivers, and still have that in my blood. I prefer rowing, but enjoy getting out in a kayak as well. I've also had extensive experience with outdoor dog gear- I have a two year old Newfoundland- so if you or your furry companion need any doggie gear advice, I'd be happy to help!

Follow me for updated reviews on the newest and greatest gear and adventures. You can email me personally at kweiser@backcountry.com, or ask for Kayla on the Live Chat system.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I think that this piece is absolutely essential for any dog who is out on the water- on a boat, on the river, SUPing, etc. It offers some extra float for the dog, without being too bulky. They still have full range of movement and can swim quite well- but you're not worried about them so much. Especially with dogs that will swim themselves silly without any hesitation! The coat is also bomber because of the handle- so you're not wrestling to get the dog back into the boat. Although I still cannot pick up my water-logged newfie with the handle alone, I do have the ability to get her front half up so from there it's a breeze to push her in. As far as sizing goes, I find it spot on- just make sure to measure their girth, it's far more important than their length.
Hands down the best doggie life jacket out there in my opinion, Ruffwear nails it again!

Hi there,
I would recommend purchasing the size that fits her girth the best. Even if you do get a little extra length by going up in size, it won't be of much use if it's loose on her!
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at kweiser@backcountry.com, I've had a whole lot of experience with these Ruffwear products!

Good, simple, straight forward camp chair! Can throw it in the car for a weekend in the wilderness, or throw it up in the backyard for a BBQ. The bag is easy to use- large enough so you're not wrestling the chair in, and the shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. It's comfortable to sit in, and the cup holder is obviously a must for enjoying a nice cold beverage on a hot day. Definitely would recommend this one!

Hey Brandon,
That would be a solid choice to get back into it! The Channel mounting system is an awesome technology that gives you the best interfacing and control throughout the board- definitely a plus. And these bindings are a great all mountain and freestyle choice, and would pair well with the Custom.
If you have any further questions, feel free to hit me up at kweiser@backcountry.com !

Hi Aurelie,
The Yampa is going to be your better all-around sandal. It has a lighterweight sole, and is generally better for casual/water wear. It reduces the weight by 20% over the Unaweep, and is generally just less chunky. The Unaweep sandals are going to offer a heavier and beefier sole, best for hiking/water use. They will offer better traction overall!

Hi Cher,
Unfortunately there are no temperature ratings, as it will be subjective to the wearer. This jacket will be a great choice for aerobic activities, as well as adding a little extra buffer for cooler weather. This could be a great choice for you, if you plan on bringing other layers. You could also try looking at a hybrid jacket, such as the Variant Insulated jacket (Item MAR1738) that will offer the breathability, but does have insulation in the front and back.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at kweiser@backcountry.com !

If you have an iPhone and you like to go outside to play in really cool places- places that also risk shattering that really expensive phone into too many pieces to count- then you most definitely need this case. It is absolutely BOMBER. I first saw one of these on a friend's phone used for 20 days of geology field camp out in the rugged desert/mountains. After shattering my own screen on a brand new phone, I knew I had to get one of these- and I'm stoked that I did.
It's super easy to get on/off, so if you don't want to, you don't have to keep it on permanently- I use mine mainly for outdoor adventures, and switch to a smaller case for city life. It does come with a cord so you can keep the case on while still playing music, or you can just pop off the case to make it easy. The screen cover is also easy to function. It protects the screen face, but is taut enough so you can still use it. I find you do have to use a little extra pressure to get through the facing, but it's not overly obnoxious. So far this thing has treated me well- I actually feel comfortable bringing my phone on wilderness adventures. Easy to use, does good things, I think you need one!

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

I picked this up for a friend who has been asking for one for a while, and it seems to be the ticket! To start, the bag is super easy to adjust. The clip up front is easy to manage, so you don't have to sit there wrestling to get the bag on or off. The zippers are smooth and easy to use, so you can access your stored goodies without trouble. That Patagonia mesh is another plus as well- makes it more comfortable to wear, and the spacing adds breathability, so it's great for commuting. Hands down sounds like this bag is a winner- I'm going to have to grab one for myself!

Fit: True to size

This tank is truly essential! Super cute, can be dressed casual with jeans or dressed up with a skirt. The rayon/cotton blend makes it softer to the touch, and also causes it to fall comfortably on your torso (rather than hang super stiff). I love that the back has a low cut as well. I'll definitely be buying these in the other colors!

I picked one of these up for my Mom, and it's perfect! I settled on the wide mouth so she could put ice in it on the hot days, and that seemed to be the right decision. It can be tricky if full and moving, but can be managed. The lid is solid and can be clipped on to other gear. Plus it's metal, so you have nice clean water! Hands down would recommend, everyone needs a good steel bottle

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this bottle! Totally bomber durable, looks good, easily clips to other stuff so you don't accidentally leave it behind- AND it keeps your water cold. I took it down to Moab this past weekend with hopes that I could actually be drinking cold water late in the day- and lo and behold, it works! It didn't keep ice throughout the day or anything, but it was cool at the end of the day regardless of the 100 degree weather on the river. Hands down would recommend!!
