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.

I am a big flannel fan and Woolrich did a good job on this one. It is a more regular fit (longer, a little baggier) but it is still feminine. Most flannels with a regular fit tend to look boxy but this one pulls off a flattering look with a comfortable fit. The fabric is super soft and you can tell it is well made.

I love the Tentree button-ups. I always have issues with button-up shirts where they pull/pucker through the bust or have a shorter fit through the torso. This one fits perfectly. It is a more regular fit with a slightly longer length. I am usually between a medium and a large and the medium fits perfectly. The fabric is super soft and it is very flattering. If you tend to be between sizes you can go with your smaller size and it will fit accurately.

I love this shirt. I am a huge fan of button-ups but they can tend to pucker through the bust or have a shorter fit. This one fits perfectly. It is a more regular fit with a slightly longer length. I am usually between a medium and a large and the medium fits perfectly. The fabric is super soft and it is very flattering. Perfect for a more business casual look.

I really wanted to like this shirt but it wasn't right for me. I am between a medium and a large. For this shirt, I went with a large for some more room through the bust. The large had enough room through the bust, was quite baggy in the waist, and then was a little too short. Instead of being figure flattering, it fit boxier and shortened the look of my torso. If you have a less curvy figure, this shirt should fit well.

I purchased the Free People Roller Crop Denim Pants and when I saw these I wanted to get the cord version since I like the denim ones so much. These fit slightly larger but after washing, they do slim down a bit. I purchased the same size as the denim version and they fit well on the first wear after washing. Most cords tend to be baggier or have a a more mom jean fit but these are a bit more modern.

These are super soft and significantly larger than most towels, almost like a blanket. The prints come through clearly and they are super fluffy. Definitely worth spending a little extra money if it is something you will use regularly. I am debating buying a few more and using them for the house.

I have a lot of different pairs of Vans and got these for riding my bike since they come up a bit higher. The fit is the same as other Vans and I like the all-black look. Great classic shoe that is what exactly what you expect.

I have a ton of Stance socks and these are the best. They used to have an issue where if you actually wore the detail printed ones they would stretch slightly giving the image a faded look. They seem to have remedied the issue, because these still show the image clearly. The material is thinner than most Stance socks and the fit is more active than casual. Love em.

I have 3 pairs of Stance No-Show Socks and I love them. The rubberized heel is very effective for keeping the socks actually on your feet. I have had one pair for the last 4 months and they have held up well and the rubberized heel is still effective. I love them so much I bought 2 more pairs. If you are looking for something to fit under a low bootie, these are perfect.

I wrote my first review on these after buying my first pair. Three months later and I like them so much I bought 2 more pairs. The rubberized heel has stayed effective after 3 months of heavy wear and these are still my favorite socks. I have a pair of booties with cutouts and wearing socks under is really not attractive. These really are the most low profile socks I have found.

This thing is awesome. When I received it, I was skeptical because it seemed so much larger than expected. It actually fits close to the body and does not stick out like regular hip packs. It is definitely the most stylish one I have seen. The leather is super soft and the waist strap is more like a belt than typical clip closures. As far as hip packs go, I would give it a 10/10.

These are the perfect sandal for longer days on your feet. Most women's sandals really lack support, so a full day on your feet can be rough. These are perfect for sporting events or if I will be standing for more than an hour or so. The cut of the straps is more feminine than your traditional Birkenstock, so they look a bit less hippie and a bit more like normal sandals.

I was looking for a pair of pants to wear with shorter booties without the awkward pant/top of boot interface. I have a fairly long inseam (about 31in) and these hit about 3-4 inches above my ankle bone when they are fully unrolled. The fabric is comfortable, durable-feeling, and it has just enough stretch.

The fit on this is absolutely perfect. It is super flattering and is loose without being baggy. I wish we had more colors in large because I would buy them all. The arm holes are large enough to be comfortable but not too large that you see a bra underneath. The fabric is also super soft. I wish all tanks fit like this!

I love these! I have been wanting a pair of shorter shorts with enough coverage so you don't have cheek showing and these are it. Most shorts tend to be super short or reminiscent of mom jeans. These are right in the middle and feel age-appropriate since I am in my late 20's. They do feel a bit stiff to start but that is to be expected. I wish we had more colors in my size!

I purchased the Succulent Camo and I love the print. For me, the fit was a bit off. They run large and we were out of stock on the size I would need so I just returned these. The length is nice for a more modest short and the material is super soft and comfortable. Great shorts, the sizing was just off for me.

I got these for lounging, working around the house, and for wet wading while fly fishing. They run true to size and are super comfortable. They are a bit shorter, but provide enough coverage to wear in public.

These are a great lounge pant for warmer weather. They are super comfortable, lightweight, and moisture-wicking. The fabric is a bit thin so if you use them for climbing or something where they are pulled very tight against your rear, they become slightly sheer. They are great for lounging, hiking, or casual around town. They fit true to size with a loose fit through the legs and hips.
