I was born and raised in New Hartford Connecticut, and moved out to Utah in 2000. Always have had a passion for the outdoors in many ways. So many different ways to enjoy it! My favorite things to do in the backcountry is snowboard and fly fish!

Great as an insulating layer, or on its own. Nice alternative to down, especially for high exertion activities in cold weather.
Broken oar? no problem
My old skate shoes were pretty blown out after a good 2 year run! I thought, why not try out an original, the steve caballero Half Cab. This is the first pair of Vans i've had and i must say they feel very comfortable and suportive. Not only a great skateboard shoe, but i find these are great on flat pedals for mountain biking. super good grip.
If your in the market for a new pair of kicks, try out these classics!

This is a great hat for any activity under the sun. It provides super good shade and keeps you nice and cool when you're working hard. Packs up really small and stuffs away in your pack.
My girlfriend Sunnie uses the ferrosi jacket for just about everything. It is very breathable, yet blocks a chilly wind incredibly well. A great piece for someone looking to stay out longer while staying comfortable!
Getting rained out on a long backpack trip can be a big time bummer. These pants provide Huge protection at a small price, both in cost and weight! They slip into to corner of your backpack and only show themselves when it really counts.
The Durable fabric has stood up to many wet bushwhack hikes and has saved me countless times.
Pair these with the OR Helium Jacket and you are sure to stay dry, and keep your pack ultralight!
This shell is my favorite jacket for long days on the splitboard. The super tuff goretex pro fabric is surprisingly light, yet keeps you dry and warm when a heavy wet storm hits. For ski touring and splitboarding i think its important to have a lightweight packable jacket you can easily stuff inside your pack, yet you need something that will stand up to the abuse of shredding day in day out.
One of my favorite features on this jacket is the TorsoFlo hem-to-underarm vents. These dump heat and provide air flow unlike any other system i have tried. You can zip your vents down, and buckle the waist strap of your pack under your shell, to eliminate bulk and really cut down on heat build up. Huge vents!
The fit of this jacket was designed around the movement involved in alpine climbing. The articulated arms and under arms keep the jacket in place when moving your hands around for ice climbing or funny snowboard movements. Very nice when your ridding deep snow and cant afford your jacket rising up, leading to your pants filling with snow.
Ripping skins always leads to something good...
Eating one of these bars before a big hike is pretty much like taking the tram to the top of the mountain...Almost! But really, it has insane energy that keeps me going all day long. Keep one in your pocket and take a few bites every hour to avoid the dreaded bonk out/energy crash! Real, organic energy
The Grizzly bar is jam packed with energy. Real, unprocessed, organic energy. A few of these in the pack is enough to keep me going all day long without having to haul around a heavy lunch. Great for big days skiing and snowboarding in the mountains!
I think a size Large will fit you well, and should have a bit of room to layer underneath. Their sizes run pretty true, so if you normally go with a large i'd try that out.
The Voile Interface is the most effective way to attach yourself to a Splitboard. This design from the originators of splitboarding is simple yet indestructible! When ideas become to complicated thats when things start to go wrong and break down. I've experienced it first hand and that is why i stick with the trusty Voile design.
"If it aint broke, why fix it?"
The amount of stuff that can fit inside a big camping backpack these days is overwhelming. This kit will keep your things organized and in place while your searching for that random piece of gear in the bottom corner of your pack.
I enjoy the ability to keep my sleeping bag in the compression sack, all clothes in a stuff sack, and other electronics and smaller items in the mesh sack. Great way to stay on top of your gear!
The L/XL should work well for you, I enjoy wearing mine over the top of another fabric beanie that i normally wear. Seems to be more comfortable that way and stays put.
There are also really nice vents on the outside of the thighs, in addition to the inner vents shown in the photos. Quite bigger then the inner vents. This creates amazing cross flow to dump unwanted heat on the hike up. My favorite feature in a snow pant.
Unexpected downpours don't stand a chance. This jacket keeps you dry when you need it most...
The Cathode jacket won Outside magazines "Gear of the Year" award. Combining PrimaLoft One, Pertex Quantum and Schoeller soft shell in what Outside calls, "one of the most versatile winter jackets we?ve ever tested."
