Partway through college I realized I was treating my education like a chore and needed a minute off to reevaluate. What to do instead? Move to rural Appalachia, of course!
I've split my years into distinct halves over the last few years; snow season and river season. Spent three of those working as a river guide on the New (I-IV) and Gauley (III-V) rivers in Southern West Virginia with some incredibly talented people, learned plenty about moonshine and a little about boating, too.
During the winter, I live in downtown Salt Lake City, snowboard at Brighton, and do a lot of tromping around in snowshoes. I just like being outside.
If you've got questions (or just want to nerd out) about the following topics, I'd love to chat with you:
Whitewater of any kind
Why inflatables get a bad rap
How to live in a van down by the river
Have some gear questions or just want to pick my brain? Gimme a ring at 800-409-4502, ext 4456.
The jacket is lined with a thin layer of polyester, but it is not an insulated jacket. Feel free to give me a call if you have any other questions! I can be reached at 800.409.4502 ext 4456.
Currently our buyers have not placed an order with POC for any additional colors in this shirt, so the Palladium Grey and Boron Blue may be all we've got for the time being. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Very lightly lined cups, comfortable, and cute. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is the length of the tie closure tassles-- about six inches shorter and they'd be perfect.
I'm a 34C, usually a Medium in t-shirts, ordered a size Large and it fits perfectly.
So this top is padded. Really, really padded. In addition to being pretty strangely shaped, the padding is also not removable, which would make it an excellent candidate for an impromptu lifesaving device in the water. (Not actually, but you get my drift.)
I'm a 34 C, usually a Medium in tops, and ordered a Large. It fit fine, minus the concerns noted above.
I ended up exchanging this for the Triangle Top with the same print, also in a Large (http://www.backcountry.com/volcom-notaho-triangle-bikini-top-womens) and loved it.
This jacket is definitely water resistant, in part thanks to the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating, but it won't be fully waterproof.
I hope this information is useful! If you have any other questions while jacket-hunting, please don't hesitate to reach out! Call me at 800.409.4502 ext 4456 or email at email@example.com.
This skirt has a bungee for sealing the cockpit enclosure. (Sorry we didn't have that information readily available-- obviously it's an important detail!)
I'd be stoked to chat if you have any other paddling questions! 800.409.4502 ext 4456 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In my experience, this piece functions much better as an insulating layer if it's directly against the skin. Once it gets wet, the fleece holds some water, which heats up nicely from being in contact with your body.
I've definitely layered other stuff on top of it (a Hydroskin, for example) though, since it doesn't provide much protection where wind is concerned.
I hope this information is useful. Feel free to reach out if you've got any other paddling related questions-- either 800.409.4502 ext 4456 or email@example.com!
I don't know any boaters who would willingly put a hydration pack over a PFD for paddling, for precisely the reason you mentioned-- the interference with the seatback (or sprayskirt, depending on the type of kayaking.) Most folks I know just throw a Nalgene into their boat.
The other thing to take into consideration if you're dealing with the possibility of an unintentional swim is safety-- the more webbing, straps, and loops you have attached to your body, the more opportunities there are for them to snag on obstacles.
If you were really bound and determined to have emergency water, you could always fill one of these guys (http://www.backcountry.com/platypus-platy-plus-bottle) and stuff it into a pocket in your PFD. Not as much water, obviously, but better than nothing.
Hope this information helps... feel free to hit me up if you have any other questions at all! 800.409.4502 ext 4456, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yep, you got it! Holler if you need anything else-- I love talking PFDs! 800.409.4502 ext 4456 or email@example.com
I don't have an exact measurement on it, but this is a very low-profile PFD, so I'd be shocked if it hit you in the throat... I'd recommend checking out the NRS Ninja for another low-profile, no-frills PFD.
This tank does not have an internal/shelf bra.
Hope this information helps!
All of Burley's Child and Cargo trailers are manufactured in China. Hopefully this information helps!
The comfort of this parka will depend largely on what you plan to use it for, and how sensitive you are to cold. For most people, 625-fill power down is probably going to feel uncomfortably warm at 10 degrees Celcius (50 F) unless you're standing completely still for hours at a time-- and even then, it might still be a bit much.
As far as sizing goes, I've personally found Canada Goose to run a bit small, so it might be best to give the XL a shot first.
Feel free to call if you have any other questions! I can be reached at 800.409.4502, ext 4456.
It looks as though our buyers haven't yet placed an order for any more of the Bitihorn Aero 60, but keep an eye out this fall!
There's no accounting for personal comfort levels, but without a pretty heavy baselayer, I'd be nervous about this piece in 5-10 degree weather (assuming we're talking Farenheit, anyway.) This jacket is only very lightly insulated-- the new Fortius 2.0 fabric is laminated to a 160 gm weight fleece, but it's definitely still a softshell, so you'd likely need additional warmth from other layers for serious below-freezing temps.
Please give me a shout if you have any other questions! 800.409.4502. ext 4456.
If you tend to have a tough time with snug sleeping bags, I'd recommend sizing up to the Long, especially if you don't mind the extra two ounces of weight. You'd certainly fit in the Regular, but the Long will give you an extra few inches of breathing room.
Hope this information helps!
The bag is 55 inches from the high point of the shoulder to the hem. Unfortunately, Poler has temporarily ceased production of the Kid's Napsack, so we are all out of stock.
I'd recommend going with a size S in this particular jacket, if you plant to do any layering underneath-- it's a great piece, but it doesn't have a ton of stretch to it.
