Laurel Nelson's Bio

I grew up all over the place, but moving to the Canadian Rockies for high school changed everything. I moved out to Utah seven years ago for school at the University of Utah and after graduating summer of 2011 I started working at Backcountry.com. Snowboarding and whitewater are definitely my passions but I also enjoy biking, hiking, backpacking, and basically anything else active in the mountains.

Ginormous
5 5

We purchased this as a car camping tent for two humans (5'9" and 6'2") and two dogs (50lbs and 60lbs) and there is plenty of room. We have been using the Metolius Magnum as a sleeping pad (48 x 72 x 4 in) and there is still about 2 feet of room on either side. Setup is super easy, footprint is included, and tabs are marked on the fly so you know you are putting it on correctly.

Nifty little thing
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is pretty cool. You can make grilled cheeses, paninis, maybe brownies, and other square shaped treats. The only downside is that it is a bit small for a standard piece of bread. You either take the crust off before or it ends up just burning off. Either way it is a cool gadget for car camping.

Great beginner waders
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: M/Long

I got these as my first waders when I started fishing. They get the job done without breaking the bank. I have used them about once or twice a week for close to a year and I just barely got my first hole from wear or abrasion on the edge of the seam taping. For someone who is just getting into it or looking for something more affordable, these are perfect.
I am 5'9" 150lbs with a women's size 10 foot and the M/Long fit me very well. I can even fit sweats underneath in the winter. They have a bit of a shapeless fit, but you can't beat the price!

Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: L then XL

I got this shirt for my boyfriend and like other reviewers said, it fits small. He is 6'2" 180lbs and usually wears L in shirts. The L was too narrow across the shoulders. As soon as he reached in any direction the seams started to pucker and looked like they were about to rip. We exchanged it for an XL and it is a bit big through the body but it fits through the shoulders now.

Fit: True to size

I love Stance socks. They make quality products with fun prints. I purchased the Hunter color and something about wearing cute socks makes me smile more throughout the day. I wear a men's 8.5 and women's 10 normally and these fit if I pull them all the way on.
