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.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I got this as a casual/business casual skirt, and it did not disappoint. The fabric is SUPERB- super soft and it hangs nicely. I love the fold-over waistband, I'm rather short and things tend to be too long on me so I love that you can adjust that to your own fit. The overall length is nice- I tend to gravitate towards the floor length or the mini skirt lengths, so this is a great in between.
From what I've read, Toad&Co does tend to run a little large, and this model is no different. I typically wear an XS-S in bottoms, a 25 in jeans, and the XS on this fits- but it's just not as tight as I would expect it to be in the waist. Still looks great, and nothing wrong with a little extra room to tuck in a shirt! All in all, great basic skirt.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I got this for my stepmom who just took it to Indonesia for three weeks, and she loved it! It offers great protection for being on the beach and in the water, perfect for snorkeling. Super easy to pack up too! The fit is great- she typically takes a Medium, and the M was perfect without being too tight. The sleeves are also longer, which was perfect for her as well. Plus, the Black/Papyrus print is super cute! Definitely would recommend if you're looking for a quality rashguard.

Fit: True to size

I got this for my stepmom who took it on an adventure to Indonesia for 3 weeks, and from the sounds of it, it sounds like it was a life savior! The material is light and airy, great for a sunshirt in the hotter temps. The fit is right on- she typically wears a Medium in tops, and the M fit like a charm. On that note, it does have a little longer sleeves- most sleeves come up too short on her, but these fit well. Overall, great durable sun and adventure shirt- she did say that the colored shirts had some odd bright highlights on the sleeves, so I got her the white and that worked well (it's 100% solid white, no color accents).

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'll come out and just say it, there's really nothing too special about these- they're just a good all around basic casual sandal. I love the flair that the dual strap adds! They're definitely not the most bomber by any means- mine are still holding up strong after a couple of months of pretty heavy use, but you can just tell that you're not getting anything like a Rainbow. As far as fit goes, I found the length true to size, but the straps definitely come tight. I have a fairly narrow and low-profile foot, and I even found the straps to be a bit too tight right out of the box. But with a little wear they did stretch out and work great now!

Great selection of colors if you want to spice up your bike, or if you just need to replace some shredded grips. Super easy to swap out, fits like a charm, and the clamp keeps out of the way with being on the inside, so you can use the full grip. There's nothing super special about these, but they're a great basic replacement grip for your ride!

Fit: True to size

I got these for my man, and they seem to do the trick. He used to have the basic POC full-finger gloves, which worked great as a basic glove but didn't offer too much protection and tore pretty easily. In come the Simi Gloves- great padding without being absurdly bulky (especially on the outter palm area), and the openings on the fingers are great to allow for more dexterity. Super solid velcro closure too, so you don't have to worry about these bad boys going anywhere. Plus, they're really sticky too! Sizing seems pretty standard, he typically wears a size L in ski/bike gloves, and the Large works really well in these. All in all, they're holding up really well after a couple months of riding, definitely would recommend for a good basic lightly padded glove!

I got these for my man, who used to have the Flow shorts before tearing them to shreds in a nasty fall. The Trail Vent shorts have the same fit- he wears a 31 in pants, and the 30s fit great with the tab adjustments. The vents are pretty sweet, great for the hot days on the bike. The only complaint he has is on the pockets- they are silly small. When on the body, he can't easily get his hands in and out, they're way tight. Only slight design flaw, other than that- they're super!

I got this to replace my boyfriend's crunched mtb helmet. He took a fall on his Trabec Race MIPS helmet (POC0131)- hands down swear by the MIPS now, it WORKS! He wanted a more BMX style helmet, and this is the one. The fit is on point- true to the size chart and other POC helmets. Another plus is how the helmet sits on your head- seems to cradle your head for good protection, especially in the back. The open vents are awesome, allow for easy airflow. All in all, another great model by POC- great for bikes, skate, anything that requires noggin protection!
