Kylen Reagan's Bio

I was born and raised in Portland, OR. I grew up not really doing too much outdoors besides Boy Scouts. Around age 12 I started skiing and thats when my life changed drastically. I became obsessed with skiing in highschool and it led into an exploration into myself and the outdoors. I enjoy pushing my limits and learning about the world through experience. I love to hike, camp, swim and cliff jump in the summer. When winter hits, there is one thing on my mind, and that is powder. Jumps, Cliffs, Steeps, but above all, Powder. I recently moved to Utah in search of the light Utah snow. I work here at Backcountry and I ski at Snowbird mainly. So far Utah is sick and the snow has been great. If you ski or ride at the Bird, look for me in an Armada Tracer jacket and give a shout!

I want to say that the photo is somewhat inaccurate of these lenses, because when you put them in your frames, it actually looks black from the outside, unlike the photo which looks brown. They actually look preeeetty sick with the blacked out tinted look. Also, these are money in the sun. Another reason why I bought them is because I have the Gold w Gold mirror, and the damn mirror scratches and then you have these big blurs in your field of vision. Mirrors look cool, but really, theyre kinda ridiculous. This goggle doesnt have a mirror coating which is ideal to me.

These poles look cool, and theyre pretty durable in the shaft, but I had a couple of pet peeves with them when i used them. First off the overkill leather wrist straps, always stick together which is super annoying for putting your glove into while skiing (not the 2 hand kind of guy here, i got places to be). Also, the freakin basket just cracked and broke off in cold weather (-5 degrees F). Anyway, poles are rediculous to spend tons of money on unless youre an olympic super G skier. Just get something cheap as hell. Thats coming from a guy who skis 100+ days a year.....

I love these sandals so much, going to the river, going rafting, going hiking, lounging. EVERYTHING! When I put my Chacos on for the first time in spring I know its gonna be a good summer. I pulled my toe strap down though, I didn't like the big toe being wrapped up. So my sandals are basically a Z1 now, but this is all PERSONAL preference, some of my best friends love the big toe strap. Either way, SO COMFY! Another tip, is if you go in sand or silt, make sure to clean out the places where the straps go in after, because too much sand build up in those places can wear the straps. Otherwise, I cant wait for hot summer days climbing rocks, swimming and cliff jumping in Oregon rivers in my chacos!

I got the XL and its huuuuuuge. This is exactly what I was looking for. Something to fit ALL my ski gear into. Boots, helmet, 2 jackets, bibs, all under layers, all my food for the day, some beverages, and all that clutter in my pockets. Super though construction too! Almost feels like a dry bag on steroids. The backpack straps are very legit and make carrying it much easier. I got the orange, and its pretty dope. Really if you need a massive and beefy duffel, this is it.

Great boot, great quality and AWESOME liner. Only issue is the instep is pretty low. I have pretty thin feet and it still presses pretty good on the top of my foot. This can be remedied thru fitting and and molding the liner. Great stiffness and shin support. 2 different tongues and boot boards makes this pretty much the ultimate set up for boots! They are pretty light, but not cheesy light like full tilts. These are serious boots and made to last a long time, they might not be the lightest out there, but they are built very tough and made to last.

Just get them, if theyre out of stock, there is a reason, cause they are SICK! Dont just take my word for it, watch some videos and see how many big spins and and corks flash the rainbow base. If you are a smaller dude (or girl) also check out Armada JJ, but if youre like me, 200lbs and 6'2, you def want a big ski like this. I wish I had 192's.........maybe next year. But the 183's are butter in the powder. Throw on some Marker Jesters and you've got one of the lightest Pow ski set ups out there. I just moved mine from like -5 (some demo skis i picked up with badly mounted bindings), to -1, and HOLY CRAPOLY! Get these babies close to center and you can perform like a maniac. And the switch, unbelievable. If you don't ski switch ever and you wanna charge only, why are you even looking at this ski? This is a Play ski, not an old man bombimg down "double blacks" ski. If you are thinking about mounting -3.5 or more, dont do it, just go get some volkls or rossi's and stick to the tram club! Go huck yourself!

I love these pants, and I love my Tracer Jacket. But I am 6'2, and the XL in the pants was too short. I don't like super crazy long pants, but long enough that I don't have to sag them to look steezy. If you want the long look, size up. Also, I am not dogging on these by any means, they are surpremely tech, and the aqua zip is the best zipper on the market. Also the color is sick, and you will get tons of compliments, while staying completely dry. If you want some tech pants, these are legit.

Gettin whacked in the head and losing your smarts is not the in style this season. I like the red mutiny because a) it doesn't press on my forehead like most other helmets, b) the bill keeps water out of my goggles, and c) it looks good. I've rocked this helmet for some time, probably 200 days on hill, and it has never let me down. If you think helmets are uncool, then you must've hit your head. Safety first, and if you're feelin unsafe, always take a break, perhaps in the trees.

2 Major points that the description leaves out!: The bib is REMOVABLE!!!! it zips off into pants. So sick!Also, There are 2 vents on EACH leg, one on the inside of the knee, and one on the outside near the quad muscle. Once again SO SICK!

LEGIT!!! First off, Think bibs are dorky? Think again, these are the steez, wide, and the orange is definitely vibrant enough to stop traffic. Secondly......gore tex bibs are really rare, atleast in a fit that is not way tight and rides up in the ankles. These are ideal for charging it, slaying powder lines, and looking like youre on "deadliest catch" on warm spring days. As for functionality, I will update this review after I ski a solid 20 days in them. I have these with the armada tracer jacket, and I feel like I could go jump in a lake and not get wet. 349 is a ridiculous price point for 3L Gore-Tex pants, let alone BIBS! Basically GET THESE if you wanna stay powder in the pants free.

30 days on hill- holding up well. Only issue is how difficult zipping the pockets up is. Dual venting (outside and inside of knees) is AWESOME!!! The stats say nothing about this, but it is a huge selling point for me to have 2 vents on each leg. Gore Tex softshell is great for waterproofness and also somewhat stretchy and very lightweight.

Tech Supreme!

This is one nasty beast of a jacket..... Being from Mt Hood Oregon, I am all about waterproof gear, I don't even mess with mid level fabrics. Armada is on the cutting edge of jacket technology, the construction is bombproof and water PROOF. Riri Aquazip is the best zipper I've ever used on any jacket, and is truly waterproof. This jacket is decked out in aquazips, there is not a single detail overlooked. The colors are the bees knees too, like Ian said you'll get more pop! People always stop and stare like "why doesn't my North Face look so sick?!".....simply put......because its not as sick! I owned the Galactic Jacket last year, and this jacket is definitely a step up in technology, and a step down in price. Really, Armada is KILLING IT with their outerwear, I am going to be a loyal customer for life if they keep putting out this level of product. And for sizing.......I'm 6'2 and 210lbs.....I went with XXL, and its baggy, but not so huge that my knees are swimmin in it. Basically its a perfect fit for someone who likes some steeze but doesn't want somethin so big they can't do backcountry and AT skiing in it. Get yourself a pair of JJ's and a Tracer jacket and you'll instantly slay it harder, thats just a fact.
