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

This is my second Eco Vessel, and I absolutely love it. The tea/ice/fruit strainer is very high quality and keeps your water running clean. There are two screw top openings of different sizes which is convenient for driving or if you need to chug fast. It seems to live up to the claim of 36 hours cold and 8 hot. The loop handle is really well made as well.

I am a huge fan of the reverso. It is really easy to use and accommodates a large range of rope widths, even my fairly wide 10.1
I regularly climb with my three teenage kids and have enough confidence in this piece of gear to have them belay me. Because it is so basic it gives users a solid understanding of what is happening as well as creates accountability. For this reason I choose this over my Grigri when climbing with my kids or anyone that is learning.

This is one of my favorite hoodies. It works well as a semi active piece like cool weather hiking, but also looks great over a dress for a night out. I have had mine for a couple of years and wear it all the time. It has held up amazingly well and been washed dozens of times.
The hood: perfect site nice and large! it also has a really nice but discreet elastic drawstring that comes in really handy if you find yourself out in the wind or running from wildlife.
Pockets: It has two oversized perfect for frozen hands. Both are a snap closure but the snaps are in a very well thought out space so your larger items(cell phone, keys) are pretty secure.
Length: It will cover your bum.

I purchased this shoe as someone new to running. I was initially impressed with the comfort as well as how smooth my running rhythm was. I am one year in now and have tried a few other shoes to compare. The Dynamic Offset Technology Pearl uses actually works. Basically the "drop" changes from ball to toe of the foot keeping you moving forward. It really is a much more fluid feel than other shoes that I have tried. I really like the mesh upper and find it to conform and support my whole foot really well.

I have a tin of this in my gym bag, crag bag as well as my desk at work! (see photo) It works great to cure dry skin as well as prevent painful cracking that will keep you off the wall. The beeswax and nut oils really penetrate your skin. The tin container is the perfect size with a 2 inch diameter and 3/4 inch depth. The screw top lid prevents oozing when the temps get hot.

I have been really happy with this harness. I have purchased two now for my growing and now grown son. It is perfect for sport and gym climbing. I love the price too as gearing yourself for climbing can be expensive. I recommend this harness all the time for beginners as well as very advanced climbers.

These are made out of an incredibly stretchy and comfortable material. Great option for trail to office use as they have a more than casual look going. My only complaint is the waist is fairly high. It says high waisted in the specs but it seems to be noticeably uncomfortable while sitting. I was able to alleviate some of that by removing the drawstring, as it was made of an irritating fabric. I have a longer torso so the issue may be body type and where the waistband sits on me.

These shorts feel amazing on. They are such a comfortable fit and silky soft fabric that you hardly are aware they are on. They are cute enough to wear casually but really shine when worn as active wear. Moisture wicking is amazing. These shorts perform great in hot yoga, as well as for a running short. ( there is no built in underwear so you will need to wear something). I ordered a M and they fit great.

I love this hat. It really travels well. I packed it in a bag with a bunch of gear and the soft paper material held up and didn't crease or bend. It is really light weight and comfortable. This has an extra wide brim and therefore blocks a lot of sun. This is best suited for a drier environment, as the paper is not quick drying and becomes heavy when wet.

I love these shorts. They are amazingly soft and move great with your body. I have worn them for yoga, including Bikram and they really wick moisture. There is a sweet secret pocket in the inside waistband which makes them nice to wear for a quick run as well. I ordered a Large and they fit perfectly.

This is the perfect top for summer travel and activities. The super fine merino and flowy loose fit allow for plenty of air cooling and sweat evaporation. This packs down super small and is lightweight so it is the perfect top to throw in your pack for a day hike and because it is such a high quality wool, you can wear it out apres hike as well! M fits perfect and true to size

I love these pants. The super soft merino feels amazing on. They are great for travel and virtually wrinkle resistant. The pocket detail in the back is really cute and does not create bulk, as the pockets are not real. I ordered these in a Medium and they fit perfect. I am 5'10 and 140 pounds.

I love this sweater. It is a really soft nicely woven knit. The hood is over sized and perfect. What sold me on this is the subtle color design. The black and white with the contrasting blue white on the body and hood makes it a unique look. This fit me perfectly in a size M I am 5'10 and 140 pounds You can check out my profile page for my measurements for a better fit understanding

I really wanted to like these shoes. Unfortunately the fit didn't work for me. I normally wear 8.5-9 and even the 10 was tight in the toe box. If you don't mind a tight fit on the toes, the shoes really are nice and well made. They fit more like a dressy heel than a casual moccasin type which was what I was expecting.

I really like these shoes. As is typical for Vans these are super comfy and a cute style. The Aztec black/white color has a more open mesh fabric where the pattern is so they are perfect for a warm climate. The ultra kush foot bed is comfy!!

This is a beautiful sweater dress. I wish it had fit better. If you are looking for a wider, LOOSE fit, this is perfect. The medium fit very wide/loose on me. I am 5'10 and 140 pounds. You can check out my profile page for my measurements for a better fit understanding. I had to return this but the quality appeared to be good and the pattern in the oatmeal color is beautiful.

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 140 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!
