Sam's Bio

So what drives me? What gets me up in the morning? I live in Utah, that's reason enough.

I've lived most my life in Utah, (minus a few year stints in Texas, Colorado, Uruguay, Brasil and Argentina). The outdoors has always been a major part of my life, and although I love to travel... Utah will always be home.

Size Matters

Oh Agnes what can I say about her? She's BIG! Who wants a little petite thing, I like em BIG. Ms. Big Agnes Copper Spur is a bad ass. She's very spacious, and light!? I love her partial mesh see thru body, take her top off and enjoy the night sky above while keeping those pesky bugs out. Even when the storm clouds roll in she takes everything mother nature throws at her, but put her top on first. You're not at a wet t-shit contest after all.

Hahns is insane, insanely warm! This is the bag you want for those cold expeditions. The Big Agnes Hahns Peak SL Sleeping Bag is rated down to -20 degrees, and still insanely light. Just be sure to pair Hahns up with the Big Agnes Insulated pad, preferably the Big Agnes Dual Core Sleeping Pad and say auf wiedersehen to to Jack's frosty nightmares.

When I first climbed into a Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 I was amazed at how big and spacious it was. Most backpacking tents are small on size to keep down weight but Big Agnes has managed to keep the weight down (for a 3 person tent) and create space big enough for 3 people, plus with the use of both vestibules you can keep all your gear out of the open. I've yet to try and cook under the larger vestibule but with care I think it can be done on those rainy days.

Agnes what can I say about her, she's BIG. Who wants a little petite thing, I like em BIG. I think the Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL2 Super Light Tent is pretty bad a**. Even when compared to the SL3 model (3-person version) the tent is still very spacious, plus it's even lighter. It's very well ventilated. I love its mesh top, leave the fly off and keep those bugs out while enjoying the night sky above. I'm new to Big Agnes gear but I see these guys competing more and more with the "Big wigs" like The North Face, Sierra Designs and Mountain Hardwear.

I remember hiking when I was younger lugging those water bottles around, now I only faintly remember what those things look like. I love water reservoirs, this fits nicely into both my Osprey pack and my camelbak pack. The plastic taste does go away after a number of uses, would recommend to anyone looking for a quality reservoir system.

ThHe site no longer carries my pack but this is essentially the same pack, it's the same fit as mine but I like the style of mine a little better. These things have plenty of room for all your gear for a nice day hike. I was looking for a good hydration pack with a good hipbelt, who wants to carry that 3 liters of water with your shoulders alone! yeah 3 liters isn't that heavy but a good hipbelt on a hot day makes all the difference.

Like a previous reviewer said fits like a glove, surprisingly though I had to go down a 1/2 size. I wore these yesterday on a quick hike up a unmarked trail in Big Cottonwood Canyon and was very pleased. They seem to breathe well, although it was a evening hike and not much direct sunshine on the trail. Would recommend to anyone looking for a lightweight, waterproof breathable shoe for hiking.
