Kayla Weiser's Bio

Born and raised out West, I love playing outside. My first and foremost is skiing- I have been telemarking for 14 years, prefer the big mountain side of things 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 gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I got this to replace my stepmom's old Patagonia Michelin Man puffy that was shedding worse than my dog. Although she hasn't been able to put it to the true test in dead winter, so far it's a winner! It's crazy how lightweight it is, but how much warmth it can pack in- definitely of the high quality expected from ArcTeryx. It does offer a flattering fit- she typically takes a Medium in tops and the M fits like a glove without being restricting. The drop-hem is nice too, definitely will help keep the cold winds from flying up the back of your shirt! All in all, initial impressions of size and quality are top notch- can't wait for her to take it out next winter and not shed feathers every which direction!

Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I got these as a replacement for an old pair of Oakleys, and they are even better than I had hoped. The material is super light and comfortable and offers good stretch. There is a panel along the back of the waistband that's just open holes to allow for ventilation, which is a huge plus. I'm usually not super stoked on liners as I find them annoying, but these are comfortable enough that you forget they are there. I also am a huge fan of the wider waistband, I think they're much more flattering than the scrunch waistbands!
As far as sizing goes, I do believe the sizing guidelines are definitely on the larger side- I typically wear a 25-26 in jeans, and the size Small was still huge on me. I got the XS and they're much better! As far as length goes, I think they got these perfect- short enough so they don't get in the way, but long enough in the back that you get enough coverage.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I originally ordered this to be used as a riding hoodie for Spring. The material is perfect- the bonded fleece exterior sheds water droplets, the lining is super soft, and the hood is oversized (awesome). However, the sizing is weird. I ordered up to a Medium (I generally take an XS or S for tops) to have a little extra room for skiing, but it fits way more like a casual top- even a tad small. When I use the thumbholes, it's almost a little too tight- and that's saying something, I'm on the smaller side myself! Overall, still love the hoodie- wear it casually and it will work as a layer, but if you want it baggier as an outter layer I would size up 2+ sizes.

I picked this up for my bf as a spring riding layer. The material is great- lightweight, soft, moisture wicking, and the style is on point. Only gripe is that it fits SMALL for Burton. I got an XL to accommodate for a larger fit to wear with ski pants, but the XL is barely big enough for streetwear (in both the length and in the shoulders). He typically takes a M-L in Burton stuff for casual wear, so this seemed like a surprisingly small cut. Still a great top though, just wish it had worked for riding!
