MJ Johnston's Bio

I'm a native, born and raised in Utah and LOVE it!I am most passionate about climbing and canyoneering. I've had some of my best memories taking 30ft whippers and rappelling down canyons through a raging waterfall. I ski and snowboard, I've recently grown bored of boarding so I'm back to my skis this year, hopefully some tele at that. I ran rivers briefly and am becoming more and more enthralled with kayaking, basically if its in the water, I'm up for it. I want to climb mountains and I would like to do more ice climbing...amongst other things of course.

Of all of my gear bags the Black Diamond Stubby Haul Bag has taken the most abuse and withstood every bit of it. It got dropped of a 180 foot cliff by accident skid the entire way down the sandstone and hardly had a scratch. The opening makes all of your gear easily accessible without having to reach down into a dark bag feeling for what you need. You'll never have to pull out everything to find what you want. I recommend this bag to anyone who needs to haul a bunch of gear around.

The Simple Toetally Winter Boot does come a little bit tight, its canvas material so it doesn't stretch a ton. If you have a wide foot or an extra high arch, it can be uncomfortable and you might consider sizing up. However even in saying that it's a really fun around the town boot. It won't offer a ton as far as warmth or waterproofing goes, but with a pair of skinny jeans or a casual skirt it's great.

SmartWool Adrenaline Light Micro Socks are both warm and comfortable. They are great for long hikes or backpacking trips. If you are on the fence as to whether to get a medium or small/med or large I would go with the small, they are more comfortable when ultra form fitting.

The Petzl William Locking Carabiner is a quite a bit larger than what I usually use from day to day. I LOVE using this biner on multi pitch rappels or climbs. Its steady and solid all day long. Its still really easy on your ropes and the triact lock is SO convenient. I use this biner a lot to set up my slackline also, its got a lot of uses and despite its size isn't to heavy or bulky feeling.

I couldn't ask for a more stellar glove! It fits nice and snug so your palms and digits aren't in the least bit hindered unlike so many gloves out there. I use them with my motorcycle and they keep me grippy and dry. From the tip of my middle finger to the base of my palm is about 7" or so and the medium glove fits perfect.
