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:

Fit: Runs small

I was a little worried in getting these that the toe strap would be too tight and sit in an uncomfortable place. But I'm happy to say that's not the case! The straps are loose enough to not be a nuisance but still keep the shoe in place. The footbed is also surprisingly comfortable and very easy to walk around in. As far as sizing goes, I do feel that they run small. I generally wear a 7-7.5 but will size up in flip flops so I don't constantly stub my toe. The 8 fits perfectly in this model- no extra room in the front or back like usual. But still super cute, would definitely recommend!

Fit: True to size

Super cute and comfortable- another win from Volcom! Good fit- not too tight, but tight enough to keep them on the feet. I generally wear a 7-7.5, but I picked up an 8.0 since they're flip flops and I hate having my toes jammed at the end and my heels falling off. Good choice to hop up half a size, they're perfect!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I love RVCA, and I love RVCA loose fit short tops. Or at least I thought I did! One of my favorite shirts I own is a short RVCA top from last year so I picked this one up thinking it would be the same, but it was quite different. I picked up the XS, but it still swamped me. The fabric hung stiff and looked like an oversized trash bag hanging off of my shoulders. The cut is low, but I just couldn't get it to fit right in any sort of flattering manner. Maybe this cut just isn't meant for someone with curves up top.. I wish that I could have made it work but it got sent back.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I didn't think that it was possible to love a sleeping bag so much- until I got this one. This bag is everything that you could ask for in a bag, plus more. It compacts down to a good size, and with a compression sac it gets even smaller to fit into tighter spaces. The synthetic fill is very nice- lofty, but you aren't constantly worried about it getting damp and ruining the insulating properties. And with the shell fabric directly welded to the insulation, you don't find yourself with over-stuffed spots in one place and cold spots in another. But by far, the best part is how comfortable this bag is! Super plush. The women's specific design is comfortable without being too restricting. The draft collar makes for a nice place for your neck, and the head space makes it easy to keep your pillow in one place throughout the night.
As far as sizing goes I am 5'2, I have the regular, and although it does have some extra space, I do not ever find myself swimming in it. And this bag is TOASTY. Almost a little too toasty for most of my summer outings, as I sleep very warm. But I have also found myself sleeping in a tent through an unexpected snowstorm of 2 feet, and I kept quite warm.
I can't wait to keep taking this thing out on adventures, it is the best home away from home I could ask for!

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!

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!
