Salt Lake City/Park City
I used to think "underwear are underwear", until I got these. They just keep everything where it should be and are super thin. No fly, or flaps or anything unnecessary. Just a stretchy, thin, comfy pair of underwear.
I had a leaky bite valve, so I replaced it with this. problem solved.
Like everyone else said, size up one size. I'm normally an 8 in shoes, but got a 9 in these. I really loved these slippers, until my dog ate them. So, maybe he loved them more than me.... there's really no way of knowing.
Hydroflask just makes an all around awesome product. There's nothing better than getting back to your car after a ski day and having a warm beverage waiting for you.
For the price and tech specs, I wasn't expecting these pants to be comparable to something made of a Gore material. They are thin, but that's to be expected for a shell pant. In Utah, where it could be 0 degrees or 55 degrees, it's nice to have a shell like this and choose base layers accordingly. They are longer fit, so the cuffs may drag for some shorter riders.
The fit of this jacket is just as described - long and slim. It looks awesome, both on and off the hill. The waxed material shows wear, but I think it adds character, similar to how when leather breaks in. Overall a solid jacket for on the hill that doesn't look bad in town.
I got these as a gift for the lady friend, and she loves them. Great sock to wear with boots. That old-school, mountain town styling and goat logo look nice above the boot cuff.
This is a more lightly insulated down jacket than some others. It doesn't have the huge baffles that you'll see in other down jackets, so it layers nicely and looks good as an outer piece. I got this as a gift for someone and so far they seem to love it.
This is one of the more trustworthy 12 din bindings I'd say. I've used them myself on my park skis with good results so decided to get this set up for the lady friend. So far, so good.
I'm very particular about bindings, so 4 stars is solid.
I've been a fan of Saga for years. I used to rock the Anomie line, which I loved, but have recently turned to the Fatigues. I think the new "fitted" look is awesome. So far it's been durable and the 15k waterproofing is plenty for the snowiest Utah days.
I'm 5'5" and 150 lbs and wore the medium pants/jacket last year. I could have problably gone up to a large and still be comfortable, but I wanted a street style look.
I've been a Spy fan for a long time, so I'm stoked to see that they're making a couple models of sport shades. They are perfect for cycling, or any time I need a pair of shades that will stay put on my face a little better. The arm and nose pads are incredibly grippy which is definitely necessary if I get the least bit sweaty.
Maybe. I don't know if he loves it, but I do. Now he's not such a freeloader in my eyes.
The new model should be in closer to fall. Backcountry won't be restocking the current year model. I'd say check back around the middle of September.
If you're going to cook with a dutch oven, which everyone should be doing, then you're going to need this. It just works like it should and it costs less than an orange mocha frappucinno.
These are awesome! Obviously they're designed for running, but I use them for just about any warm weather activity where I may sweat. Softball, hiking, dog walking, volleyball, tennis, etc. The internal lining is perfect for keeping the boys in place when you get rowdy out there.
I too used this product for a trip to Nicaragua. I was told they have bugs, and they can be bad. I followed the instructions and did a few outfits. I came away from the trip with very minimal bites.
The only problem I have with it is the way it sprays. It wasn't an even mist, but more-so just large circles so it took awhile to get the entire surface of my clothes covered.
But the product itself worked great.
I have this stuff in both the 30 and 50 versions. Both are great! Sunscreen is expensive but necessary. I've tried just about any brand from the grocery store and a few brands from this site, and this is my favorite. I think because it works and smells better than the rest. What more could you ask for?
I bought this pack for two reasons. I needed a travel pack that would easily fit in and overhead compartment that was cheap. This met both requirements. It's a classic, top-loader pack without many bells and whistles. I wasn't expecting any additional pockets, or really anything other than what was advertised. The only think I didn't like was the top lid isn't very adjustable. Unless the pack is full, the top lid kind of flops around.
One thing I really did like was the handle located in the middle (as seen in the photo) so you can carry it like a duffle bag.
yes, it does have a waistbelt. I don't have the dimensions right now. Sorry!
These shorts are a staple for my outdoor dad-style days. They're pretty basic, which is why they're awesome. The built in, adjustable belt is really convenient. The material is durable, and they fit a tad on the shorter side. They're not the most technical material (cotton, duh) but they also retail for $33.95 so I'm not sure what you'd expect.
For reference, I have a 31" waist by 30" inseam and mediums fit well.
