Lisa'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 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.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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.

This is exactly what I want in a pullover hoodie. Relaxed comfy fit but not oversized. The pocket is perfect and the circling birds are mesmerizing. I normally wear a M top but got this in a Large because it was intended more for lounging in. The M would have fit me well too but less relaxed.

This bra is really cute and looks great peeking out of any top. I wouldn't recommend wearing it like the model as it is definitely see thru. I find if I wear it more than a few hours it can cause some discomfort due the the rough nature of the lace fabric. I ordered a M and am normally a 36 B+ bra it fits great

I really like this top. It is super soft and easy to wear with anything. I like the style, the torn effect gives it a relaxed look but the graphic is artistic/sophisticated so I have found it easy to dress up for a casual night out. I ordered size M and that is what I normally wear, it fits great. I have a longer torso and this is a good length for me as well.

This looks and feels great on. Too often short dresses are too short on me. This is a nice length and the Medium size hits me mid thigh(Im 5'10 145 pounds with a longer torso) Really comfortable and packs well without wrinkling in your luggage. The Blazing Strip color looks even better in person.

I love this dress. It is a beautiful super soft and stretchy fabric. I am 5'10 and it is floor length on me so I would consider this a very long maxi. A medium fits perfectly, and I weigh 145. For the bra top, it fits me well being a B cup but my daughter who is a D-C was spilling out the top. My only disappointment is that it is a printed dye rather than an actual tie dye but it still looks great.(I have the black tie dye version)

I love Sanuk shoes and especially this model. They are a perfect alternative to my favorite summer shoe, the flip flop! Really comfortable and lightweight. Great for travelling too as they pack down nicely in your bag. If you are wearing them as you should without socks, I would recommend washing them regularly in a sink of warm water and laundry soap, and then air dry. I wear a size 9 and these fit true to size.

This model only has one led and no red light option. If you are looking for a compact headlamp with a red light option I would suggest looking at the Petzl e+LITE Emergency Headlamp, as it does offer this feature.

I love this beanie. It is one of my favorites! It is made of a super soft acrylic that is perfect for snowy days as it doesn't get the funky wool smell when wet. The fit is great, a little more generous than a standard beanie but not an oversized saggy type. The Pom is the perfect size too! FlyLow makes the most bomber gear and this is no exception.
