Lisa E's Bio

Backcountry.com’s Gearheads are your instant connection to gear knowledge. They’re passionate outdoor experts hell-bent on helping you find the right ski, saddle, or pro. Follow their adventures and exploits.


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

This is great for yoga, or other low impact sports, such as lounging around. It really is comfortable. The three straps across the back seem to spread out the pressure you normally feel from one. It is also really cute under an open back or sheer top. M/L fits great, I am a 36B.

These are a great quality, medium weight tight. The dot detail is really cute, as well as the striping adds a lot of interest making them unique. They are really comfortable and soft. The waistband is the perfect balance between holding things in place but not restricting. The M/L fits perfectly, I am 5'10 and 145 pounds.

This is the perfect size for short trips out or for a night out on the town. The shoulder strap is highly adjustable. The fabric is bright and beautiful, I love the sugar skulls! The outside pocket is perfect for a cell phone and car keys. The inside can accomodate a really large wallet, sunglasses and even a small snack. The internal zipper pocket is large and I use if for my sunglasses!

These are a great casual winter boot. The sole provides awesome traction on icy streets. I really like the lace up look but appreciate that this boot has a long side zipper for easy on and off. I found them to be adequately warm for Utah winter weather, and sized true. If you are wanting a really heavy sock I would only go up 1/2 size.

This was a really nice cut and flattering fit. Only problem it was way too short. I have a longer torso and am 5'10 and am comfortable wearing short dresses but this is more like a longer shirt and my bum showed. :( Would be cute maybe with some capri leggings or boy shorts...

This bag is great. It is the perfect size for weekend trips, and works well for a carry on too. I got the sugar skulls and the colors are very vibrant and beautiful. The internal zipper pocket is over sized and perfect. Love this bag!

I purchased this because I love the tie dye seagrass color. It is a beautiful fabric and the crochet detail on the back is really nice. It is a looser fit especially on top. I am 510 140 pounds with a 36B chest. I ordered a M and it fits loose where you definitely will be showing a little bra if you choose to wear one.

This dress is really comfortable and the tie back allows for a more custom fit. It is a really great length, long but not too long and the small side slits allow for plenty of leg movement. I have used this for travelling and it is perfect, easy to wash and dry and does not wrinkle easily. I ordered a M and am 5'10 140 pounds with a 34B chest It seems to be a little higher cut in the chest than other Patagonia dresses so in my opinion would also be perfect for larger busted ladies. The Eveline Stripe/black looks great on and is very flattering!

This is awesome for bikram yoga classes and is large enough to cover a full size mat completely and small enough to not take up too much bag space. It is surprisingly absorbant for how thin it is.

This is a great basic bikini bottom. The ruching detail on the back gives it a little interest and brings it slightly out of the basic realm. Looks nice! It sits lower on the hips but not an extreme low rise so no worries about getting offered plumbing jobs. I wear M in most patagonia bottoms but Needed a L as it was a bit tight on the hips. Definitely stays put in most higher impact activities :)

I prefer this roller over a solid foam one. The hard plastic tube seems to offer more consistency in the pressure. It also makes it more convenient for travel and use in small spaces as the inside can be filled with smaller items in your luggage.

I have been having so much fun cruising around on my bike playing tunes for myself. The handle bar mount is super secure and the sound is just right so I am able to hear cars and other distractions. I am also finding it has tons of other uses and have been attaching it to all sorts of things so it can follow me around. Most recently mopping my entire wooden floor house with it in tow. Yeah, I attached it to the mop handle! My floors were shiny and I think my mop was stoked to have a dancing partner.

This is a fairly dressy top with the neck detail and colored fabric but the long loose fit makes it still look relaxed and fun. You will have a little bit peaking out where the arm openings are so make sure you have a cute or matching bra... It fits great and feels good on. My only complaint is it requires a bit of ironing and I'm lazy about that chore. So I don't wear it as much as if it was wash and wear.
