Kelley Siefert's Bio

Utah has been home for 7+ of the most magical years of my life. Snowy mountains AND desert? Yes, please. The Canyons Resort is my home mountain and the greatest part of getting on the hill each day is knowing I can still rip unchartered in-bounds terrain on a mountain I know like the back of my hand. I am in love. I dig being outside - anything outside - and thrive on new challenges. I guide skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, grew up ski racing in the PacNW, recently picked up mountain biking to keep my legs in shape for ski season, and just started exploring the backcountry last winter.

Really, really cold water that falls from the sky makes me happy. So does music, wine, friends and family.

Is it so wrong to want a watch that can hang on the trails and still look feminine enough to wear out for a drink? I think not: and I found it in the Suunto Lumi. When I opened the package, I was surprised at how big the face was...but it's still light enough to cart with me when I'm biking or skiing the backcountry. I'm not tech-savvy when it comes to gadgets but I found this to be easy to set up and use right away. I use the alarm daily and really like the sunrise and sunset time feature. And of course, the altimeter helps when tracking my stats. I'd highly recommend this watch!

This is my first pair of Costa del Mar sunglasses and I'm so happy with them! I haven't had glass lenses before and was worried about the weight. While I do notice that they are heavier, they aren't TOO heavy...and the advantages of the 580 lens outweigh an added ounce or two. They are crystal-clear, reduce glare on the water and look super hip (I got the black and white). And, I like how sturdy and durable they are. I'll have them for years.

The Giro Loma cycling glove seemed perfect for what I needed it for: lightweight, full-fingered coverage for the early season, over grown trails but breathable enough so I wouldn't get too hot. Plus, thin so I can still adequately keep hold of my handlebars. All of this is true, but the seam ripped out on the right glove near the wrist. Would I buy them again? Ya, with the HnR return policy, but I was bummed they had such a short life.

I am so happy with my new Sidi shoes! I had shoes that tied prior and the laces always got in the way. These shoes are made for performance and they haven't let me down. I bought them for mountain biking but use'em on my road bike, too. They are as comfortable as you would hope, while still being secure. Plus, after a tiring ride, they're super easy to slip off with the velcro closure. Best yet? Rumor has it they hold up for years, so my investment should be worth every penny. Highly recommend them!

I just got these glasses and am so glad I now have performance shades to wear when road and mountain biking. I swear - first ride I wore them, I had my fastest mountain bike ride of the season! I switched the lenses out for the Ignitor right away and they were solid for a sunny afternoon. The coverage was great for my face, breatheability spot-on, plus they made me look way cooler than my old pair. Total score.

This shoe is exactly what I need it to be: functional on the trail with incredible waterproofing to keep my feet dry. It's been a very wet spring in UT and the shoes have held up...they really are water PROOF. I find Salomon trail shoes to run a bit big, so if you are in between sizes, go with the smaller of the two. These are awesome in the Gore-Tex and non-waterproof option, too, depending on your needs. I'd absolutely invest in another pair down the line.

I have used this tool for both my mountain bike and road bike and don't know why it took me so long to get one! I like that it is really small because I can use it in my under-seat pack on my road bike or in my Camelbak to make sure I am set be it on the road or trail. It may be a little too small for someone with bigger hands. Also good? It's affordable, which is key.

The CW-X 3/4 length Pro Tights are awesome and worth the investment for anyone serious about being active. I actually used them for a chilly spring mountain bike ride and they kept me warm and supported. They are pretty darn tight to get on, but the support is worth the shimmy into them (I suggest no witnesses when getting dressed!). Make sure the knee cap fits just above the x-shape on the lower leg and you are in the right size.

This bag is awesome. I bought it for backcountry skiing hut trips and winter camping (as I froze in my 20 degree bag last February in Moab) and it has proven worth every dollar. Plus, the girlie side of me likes the butter yellow and baby blue colors, too. It really is light, stuffs down to a tiny size, and the stuff sack has convenient straps for hanging it off your pack. I absolutely recommend this bag.

I just got these tights (actually, the 3/4 length) and they're great for keeping my knees in line! They are TIGHT, but not uncomfortably so. I fall in the middle of the medium sizing chart for their pants and have considered going up a size, but if you do, they won't be as supportive and the knee webbing (the purpose of such a tight) won't cup and support as its intended. Try them on for a workout or two, and commit. The CW-X Expert tights are all about performance.
