Lisa E's Bio

I can't get enough of time spent outdoors. Salt Lake City is the perfect place for this and thankfully this is where my parents raised me, and I currently live. I love getting out in the Wasatch, skiing, hiking, climbing, or just sitting by a mountain stream. Most of the time, I have one or all three of my kids joining me. I love camping, and backpacking all over the Western US but prefer staying in Utah, either the Uinta Mountains, or Southern Utah Redrock. I am an avid backcountry and alpine skier. I taught skiing at a local mountain for 13 years before moving to a desk job here at Backcountry.com

These are some great panties. This is my sole underwear for travel. They are no show under almost anything. They pack tiny. Easy to wash and super fast to dry. The black color came in handy when I forgot my swim bottoms on a recent hot springs trip.

Nothing beats the feel of cotton for relaxing or hiking around. I purchased these for my 16 year old son. He loves them and wears them to school and after school hikes. They are not necessarily a super technical hike short but if you are in the hot desert with no chance of rain these work great. Easy to wash and don't shrink in the dryer. Huge pockets are nice. Definitely durable enough for climbing or anything else.

I love these shoes. I find the narrower webbing to be really comfortable and also nice looking. These are an essential for travel because they are so versatile. Great traction for wading across rivers, works well for day hiking even on technical terrain. The best part is they also look nice just in case you go out after your adventure. All the fun colors made it really easy to find a pair for myself as well as my two teenage daughters(14,19) They love them!
I prefer this style that does not incorporate a big toe strap. Reason being that it is more comfortable and also if you are taking them backpacking or somewhere that it may get cold you can always layer with a pair of socks(not the most fashionable!) My girls wear 8 and the 8 fits perfect. I wear 8.5-9 and the 9 fits great.

I think safety wise, having a bell is a necessity. This is perfect for alerting others on blind corners or anywhere else you need your presence known. The video is very helpful for installation. I have to agree with others that the sound is lovely and the design is very aesthetically pleasing!

This is the perfect jacket for travel or throwing in your day pack when there is a chance of rain. The minimal features are just right. The hood is an ample size, and has a draw cord which is a nice feature. It stuffs very easily into the internal pocket. There is also a bottom cinch if you are in some real wind!

This is a great lightweight hoodie. It has a nice oversized hood and fits a little loose. I have been using it for travel as it packs well and is versatile. It is a great top for hiking and I am regularly tossing this in my pack. It is suprisingly cool in the hot sun and feels great to keep the beating rays off my skin. The over sized pockets are awesome and very large.

These are great shoes and definitely not the first pair of Sanuks I have purchased. I picked these up for my son and he loves them. They have a nice casual look which is great for a 16 year old in the summer. The antimicrobial is great but I would still recommend washing these occasionally.

Love these shorts. They fit well, are easy to clean, and great for travel with. My outdoor wardrobe would never be complete without a pair of these. These pack down really small and work great for backpacking, hiking, camping and really just hanging out. The two front pockets are amply sized to hold a small camera or smartphone, and a few snacks.
