Kayla Weiser's Bio

Born and raised out West, I love to play outside. My first and foremost is skiing- I have been telemarking for 14 years, prefer Big Mountain but love mixing it up with touring and park days. #spreadtelemark

In the warmer months, I love to get out mountain biking, climbing, hiking, backpacking, camping, and whitewater boating. I also have a 4 year old Newfoundland fur baby, so if you or your pup have any questions on doggie gear, Camber and I would 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.

I got this for my papa for Christmas, and seeing as how he actually wears it, I think he likes it... The fabric is super soft, just as you would expect from Smartwool. It's a nice lighterweight sweater, pairs great over an undershirt. He is 5'11 and 160lb, more broad shoulders. I got him the L, which is what he typically wears, and it's a good fit in the shoulders, arms, and length.

I have been eye-balling these for a while, and am SO happy that I finally have a pair. They are like a little piece of heaven on your feet... SUPER comfy, warm, and they're just solid all around. I love that they have a durable sole- makes it easy to run outside, and it also gives you some grip on slippery floors. The lining isn't itchy at all- a little bit of fuzz comes off here and there, but nothing to be worried about. I am a size 6.5-7 typically, and the 7.0 in these is a perfect fit either barefoot or with a light sock! I literally have worn them every single day since I got them, and have no regrets. It doesn't get better than these!

After the dogs got to his last slippers (literally- full on tug of war between them) it was time to get my man some new ones. I personally have the women's Nasika slipper and am in love, so I decided to upgrade him to a pair of Sorels as well. Definitely a good choice! They are super comfortable, very warm, and they have a very durable sole too. I got him his usual street size 10, and they fit him perfect either barefoot or with a thin sock. If you're looking for a pair of comfy slippers, look no further- these are your ticket!

I got these for my man as a backcountry skiing pole, and the initial tests have been good! The adjustability is great for touring, and so far the locking mechanisms have worked exactly as they should- no loosening by themselves. The grips are comfy enough too. They really aren't super light, so if you're counting grams these may not be your ticket. So far, so good- will update if anything changes!

I am personally not a fan of frumpy robes- I'd prefer to just wear an oversized sweatshirt and leggings at that point. But this robe? This robe... This robe is legitimately amazing and not frumpy in the slightest. It's nice and snuggly- not too thick, but still warm enough to hang around on winter mornings. The fleece lining makes it so cozy! I love the big pockets too. As far as the fit, I think it is right on point. The sleeves fit me well, and the length hits right above the knee. Literally pair this with some slippers, and you might become a perma-hermit...

My little sister LOVES to play in the snow- skiing, sledding, snowman making, you name it. She needed a new pair of pants (I can't believe how quickly these kids grow) and we settled on the Snowbelle girls pants. So far, so good! She's 9y old, a little tall and slim for her age, and the size L is a good fit. They've held up well in the Utah winter as far as waterproofing and warmth goes. All in all, great pants- Patagonia got it right again!

My pops uses this stuff for his numerous pairs of cross country skis, so I decided to stock up his stash. He loves it! Easy on/off and it does very much work. Toko knows what they're doing!

My bf is an expert skier, been skiing for years, and as such has subjected his feet to many pairs of boots. Out of all of them, he says that Salomon fits him the best so we upgraded him to the X Pro 130s. Great decision! He's actually comfortable when he skis now (yes, you can have comfortable feet in ski boots). Stiff flexing boot- great for advanced riders, not so great for those just getting into it. All in all, he says they're super sturdy and comfy- definitely a win!

I got this as a gift, and was super impressed. Super durable ArcTeryx design, the zippers are bomber and still easy to work quickly. As far as fit goes, I had my bf try it on to get an idea on sizing- he is 5'10 and 160lb and was in the Medium. The fit was nice- easy to wear as a casual piece, and also had enough room to layer up for the cold days. All in all, another quality piece from ArcT!

The fabric is super nice- lightweight and soft to the touch. Great for multiple seasons-wear! The colors are also really nice, very vibrant. Overall, definitely would recommend- seems to be good quality, a nice addition to the scarf collection!

These are my initial impressions, but so far I LOVE these socks! I've been super jealous of my boyfriend's compression ski socks, but I've finally got a pair to join the game. I've always really liked Icebreaker socks, and I'm stoked on these. The fit is spot on- I am a women's 7, and the size Small is good (and tight). I've got fairly large calves- so it's a bit of a wrestle to get them on, but once I do they're really supportive. And the color is AWESOME! I've used them once so far on the slopes, and I have to say that my level of soreness is substantially decreased- though I will most definitely put them to the test more and update if anything changes. All in all, definitely would recommend!

When I discovered Oakley workout gear, I fell in love. This tank is no different! Super light and comfy- easy to layer over a sports bra, and the fabric is really soft. The color, coral glow light heather, is fabulous- a bit less orange than the photos online, but I rather like it in person. I like that it's a little longer- I don't find it super oversized or anything, but a little taller which makes it easier to wear with leggings. All in all, I love it- wish there were more colors available!

I love coozies- but I love beer more. And keeping your beer cold is very important. This little rambler is AMAZING! Keeps your brews cold while insulating your fingers. So after a freezing cold pow day when you just want to enjoy that cold beer, you don't have to sacrifice your fingers to do so. Super secure, great Yeti quality. Definitely would recommend!

I love Smartwool, and their beanies are the PERFECT layer for underneath a helmet! They're not super thick, so easy to layer with. But they pack quite a bit of heat for being so light! Super soft and comfy, really have no complaints- other than I wish they would be a little more durable (wearing goggles under the helmet causes a few holes after continuous use for a season).

I too have a handful of Hydroflask bottles, and love them all! Super durable, very good at keeping items hot/cold, and very secure lids- so you don't have to worry about spilling your goods everywhere. The lid on this is alright- not my favorite, but easy to clip into things. And it's definitely a plus that they make interchangeable lids too!

I got these for my man as a house slipper, and they worked great! That is, until the dogs found them and thought we had provided them with new tug toys... But up until then- great!
Super comfortable, true to size, and quite warm- definitely no frozen toes with these things on. Great cold weather comfort for your feet!

This is my third pair of Sorels... And it certainly won't be my last. I simply have not found any other bomber boot that lives up to this level!
To start, they're ridiculously sturdy. No wobbles when you walk, and the traction is unbelievable. They're not really insulated by themselves, but they definitely help to insulate your feet from the cold ground, so that's a plus. They're also SUPER comfy- again, Sorel just nails it there. I can wear these all day- walking, standing, up & down hills, the whole loop- and my feet don't hurt. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if you have a pair of Toms Desert Wedges, you know how comfortable those are- these are just as comfy, but far more technical!
Sizing is spot on- though if you plan on wearing very thin socks, you may want to size down half a size. But I wear a 7.0 in most everything (including my Joan of Arctic tall boots, and the wedges) and the 7.0s fit perfect with a normal to midweight sock.
All in all, if you need a pair of bomber boots for fall-spring, look no further- these are the ones!
