Seth Wiscombe's Bio

I'm Seth. I've been snowboarding forever and love being boring and hiking the park all day long. I'm way into fixed gear bikes, they keep me busy in the summer when the snow's gone. You'll also probably find me turning wrenches on my car, which is much more fun on warm days. I did a couple years of commercial river guiding on the Snake River (rafts and canoes). Climbing comes and goes, I started out sport climbing but transitioned mostly into bouldering. I've jumped into a few local competitions but mostly for the free goodies:) Currently working at Backcountry!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Socks was never something I cared about. I wore the oldest simplest socks for the longest time. Unfortunately, I started walking the luxury sock path and now my my feet are pampered whiners. I picked these up because they are some of the cheaper merinos out there. They're comfy but they seem to fall off the back of my heel often. Other socks I've used don't. I'm a solid size 8 and I got the S/M so maybe I'll try the M/L to see if I have better luck. You can't beat the price.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
Fit: True to size

My wife likes this. One of her favorite go-to hiking layers. She grabs this when she doesn't want a jacket but wants a little more warmth than a long sleeve. It is very thin like a long sleeve shirt but does a better job than just a button up. Looks great too.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I gave some of these to my parents who were heading to Asia for a month. They had a filter but I liked the comfort these gave me, knowing they had a backup plan just in case. They seem to do the job as advertised. Not a bad item to have in an emergency kit or in food storage for those times when, you know, zombies are everywhere...

Got them for the easy electrolyte boost. I always seem to drop them in water bottles that are too big, (i.e. nalgene) so they end up being pretty watered down, kind of like that lemons and water wedding punch you drink just because it's there. I'm sure they taste better with the recommended 16 oz bottle, but these are just so convenient I can't help it, just drop it in and go.

I really like this headlamp. It definitely has it's place and probably won't be the one trick pony for everyone, but for me it's perfect. The light is bright enough, the settings are simple, (wide spot, off), it's super lightweight, and -my favorite- you can wrap it around your bike handle bars and the headlamp body and use it as a bike light. Using it on your bare head (no hat) for an extended time will leave a line in your forehead, so probably not the best option for long excursions where comfort is a factor, (though it's comfortable enough for shorter periods). I really love the compactness. The fact that it doesn't have your typical strap makes it seem to fit in places so much easier. I constantly find myself throwing it in my pocket like I would a set of keys. I really like the glow in the dark ring also, it's a great touch when you're reaching for it in the dark.

These gloves became my new go-to's. They regulate my hand temp perfectly. When it gets super cold they do the job. When it warms up, they are still working. Very comfortable as well. They give you dexterity like you are wearing a smaller park type glove, but the tech keeps you warm when it gets yucky. I've always leaned toward lighter-cheaper-park type gloves and sacrificed warmth, with these I still get the dexterity that I want but my hands stay toasty. Great glove. On a side note, the leashes are removable so after ditching those and chopping all the tags off, I gave myself a super bomber glove that's super quick on and off, just the way I like them.

I have the earlier model of this binding and LOVE IT! I was storing my board at the resort and came back one day to a snapped highback. Wish I could tell you who used it and how it happened, but I called up Flux and they sent me a new one for free. I was sold on Flux from there on. Good company making some good stuff. Might be time to upgrade to the radical Hula girl though...

I got these for the style, I love this thrift store look. The tech inside these is far from a thrift store treasure though. These things keep me sooo warm I almost feel like I can ONLY wear them in winter... wow. On a fit note, I wear a size 8 so I got a size 8. These things fit like a glove. I wear them with my everyday socks though so if you're planning on throwing on a thick winter sock then make sure you plan accordingly by going up a half size.

Ok, this thing is really cool! It's 2 tools in one! You can use the one side to get at the inner parts of many bottom brackets (like on many mt bikes) or use the other side to get at the outer parts of many bottom brackets (like on many road bikes). Perfect for me who works on bikes with both of these types. On a side note, I thought it was a clever design to be able hand tighten/loosen bottom brackets by grabbing onto the outside edge of tool or for the stubborn bb's just throw the wrench on the center of the tool. Very versatile.
