Rachael Van Dolah's Bio

While a native to South Carolina and drawn to the coast, warmth, and the sunshine, I have uprooted for a change of pace and have now called Salt Lake City, UT home for the past 4 years. With a variety of terrain, Utah offers endless opportunities to get out and explore. When the weather is warm, I can be found camping, hiking, running, backpacking, and playing Ultimate Frisbee all over the state. When winter is back in full swing, I tend to stay in the Salt Lake area and can be found skiing up at Snowbird or snowshoeing with the pups in Millcreek.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: Small

I gave this item as a gift, but I liked it so much I may need to get one for myself. The material is incredibly soft, the fit is tailored to a nice shape, the overall design is really nice, and I love the colors available. I ended up choosing the Lunar Ice Grey and I really like it. I hope it is as big of a hit with my sister. This is a soft grey color, but not masculine like some of the greys you see on the market. Overall I would highly recommend.

I gave this item as a gift so I only have feedback to provide, but this has been a hit. Well made jacket, nice great on, and the colors are wonderful. Overall this jacket is a bargain at the price and should work perfectly for him for years to come.

I purchased this bottle in the 32 oz size and loved it so much I came back for more. The 32, while great was just a tad too large for day to day carrying around. The 25 oz is perfect. The design is comfortable to carry, the spill proof lid works wonderfully, the ease of drinking from the bottle is nice, and to top it all off the lid even offers a little mouth guard if you want to keep dust, grime, and dirt off of the drinking portion of the cap. I really like these bottles and I would certainly recommend these to anyone. I am now the proud owner of 4, although this may be more than I really need.

I gave this item as a gift and it was a hit. Fits perfects, looks great on, light weight enough that you can certainly use this as a layer under a shell without it looking super puffy, but warm enough to offer a comfy jacket for those chilly fall and winter days. I am very pleased with this gift and I think it will work wonderfully for him for years to come.

I purchased the lock set to pair with my AeroBlade rack system. A small part of the package, but wonderful for giving you peace of mind that someone will not run off with your gear. Well worth the money.

I shopped around for months for the perfect rack system and I simply could not decide. After taking a look to see what each of these racks looked like in person, I made a move and went with the AeroBlade set up and the assigned Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack. I have been so pleased with this system. Easy to assemble, stable on the car, quiet as can be on the freeway, and very durable. These feet are a must for the set up and have worked well. Overall the set up was a pricey purchase, but well worth it. I suspect I will be able to use this set up for many years to come!

I purchased this cargo box for a cross-country move in my small sedan and it was perfect for adding a little more storage. I was concerned about it surviving the trip because it was pretty flimsy feeling in material, but once mounted and filled it was surprisingly stable and did not flop around. It also survived very strong winds and very heavy rains on this lengthy drive. Overall I was quite pleased with my purchase and knowing how well it did on this drive I would recommend this to someone looking for a little more space. Do note the sizing however as it is far too small to fit skis, boards, or anything of size inside.

I should warn that the initial assembly is a bit of a pain, but the good news is you probably only have to do it once. It took two people to hold everything in place to assemble, but was easily mounted by one once done.

I purchased this item for use on kayaks in the Utah area. We have had the chance to take this out on a number of occasions and it has been a great purchase. Light weight, adjustable for a range of sizes, doesn't cause chafing when paddling, and isn't bulky. We are fond of the pockets this style offers as well although they have not been used for anything more than a car key so far. Should be a great addition to our water sport collection for years to come.

I love this leash so much I have come back for a second. The roaming feature (bungee) is so nice for hikes, runs, and walks where you don't wish to feel every tug if you have your pup tied around your waist. The one design feature I am not as fond of on this newer version is the metal hook. I find it frustrating to try to get off once home. I have chosen to simply loosen the waist belt and step out rather than fight with the sewn loop. I do preferred the clip version that was available a few years back, but I am sure it was changed for a reason. Not enough of an issue to seek a different leash, just my feedback on the feature.

We have loved this paddle so much I have come back for a second. Great for recreational paddling and very durable. We use this for our two 28 inch kayaks in the creek and harbor and have found that it is light weight, easy to use, and versatile for a variety of size people ( in 230cm). The first paddle has been used for years and it is still doing well. Simply decided to finally upgrade the older plastic paddle for the second boat to a lighter and easier to use version.

I purchased this item as a gift for a family member heading out on a rafting trip to celebrate their big day. The shoes were a total hit. They were not only very comfortable for day wear, but offered the breathability, traction, and drainage they were seeking. In addition they offered extra protection on the toe for hiking and rafting where it can be too easy to stub your toes. Overall they were a great purchase. I would highly recommend these after receiving this feedback.

I purchased this item as a gift for my dad who has found this to be an amazing hand towel for his golf bag. He loved the first one so much he asked for a second. The small size is great. Although not the intended use, it has been a hit!

I have been using this spray for years and I find it truly works to stop almost anything from biting you. I tend to try to put it on my shoes and clothing (certain labels may warn of possible color change on fabrics which may be true, I have not noticed) to prevent soaking my skin in deet on a regular basis. Overall a great product. A little bottle, but a little bit goes a long way.

I gave this item to my sister as a gift since she has been trying to get into lap swimming this summer. Cute design, great fit, and perfect for lap swimming. We followed the size chart and it seemed to work out well. Overall a great buy.
