Jason's Bio

Im originally from the Bay Area, but now live in Boulder, Colorado. The mountains are what drives me to get up every day, make a buck, and enjoy life. I love every season and what it has to offer here, the winter with all its cold and snowy glory. I am a snowboard fanatic, give me fresh powder for the backcountry riding, or a warm spring day in the park. Either way, im there until its gone. Come summer time, im exploring the mountains with a 4500 cu pack, and my 1 person tent. if im not out with my pack, im tearin down a hill on my freshly built Intense Tracer full suspension bike. There are to many ski resorts, and single tracks to count out here in CO, but I am checkin them off 1 by 1. Backcountry.com and its affiliated web sites are where the deals are, and where I spend most of my dough.

I got this hat in red and yellow and it is the standard New Era Hat that looks dope, and fits to your head perfectly. The best part of buying a DC NEw Era Hat is that you are repping any sort of team so you dont have retards yelling at you for wearing a apposing teams hat. You cant beat a New Era hat for under $25, get one.

Trident for Life
5 5

Simply the best knife I have ever owned. I love knives and buy a lot but the Trident is my go to knife for just about everything. I have owned this knife for well over 3 years now. It has gutted fish, cut up boxes, widdled wood, and so much more. The S.A.T. is awesome, as close to a switch blade as you can get, yet you are protected with a locking mechanism to prevent unintentional opening of the blade. this bad boy is SUPER light as well which makes it perfect for backpacking, it will never weigh you down in any situation. The casing has a nice pattern of bumps that makes it look bad ass, and adds a nice grip to the knife. This is the go to knife any day of the week.

I have used this on 4 different 3 to 5 day backpacking trips, plus I have had numerous drunken friends pass out on this pad. ALPS Mountaineering has done it again, great quality product at a price you can afford. This air pad is soooo easy to use, just unroll, let it inflate itself, and then blow air into it until it is at your desired firmness. I have noticed that throughout the night I have had to put more air into it, but I believe that it is a very very common issue with ALL of these type air pads after you have used them as much as I have. I have these types of air pads fold in half, and then roll up where this pad simple rolls up and is a bit longer in your pack, however it holds more air than the ones that folds in half, and you don't have an annoying creese in the middle right where your but is. To sum it up, it is bigger than normal, but if your out for numerous nights it is worth it to be comfortable.

I bought this off of steepandcheap for $75 and I would have paid more. This is my go to jacket, even though it is a shell, it is warm enough for the colder days. I usually run very hot and pit zips just don't work that well for me, but the Plateau pit zips are HUGE and open up completely for maximum ventilation. The outer shell is very tough, yet the inside material is very soft to the touch. As an added perk, Oakley put a magnet inside the lining of the hood and back of the jacket so when you are not wearing it, it doesn't fly around, but stays attached to your back where it should be. The 2 side pockets are huge, I stowed 4 cans of beer and a PB&J one day on the mountain. This jacket is simply the best buy if you are looking for a nice shell.

Little Perfect
5 5

I am a huge fan of ALPS Mountaineering because of the price, but most of all the quality and performance. I just purchased this tent for a 3 day, 50 mile hike and I couldn't have been more pleased with this tent. In the picture the Zephyr is the tent closest, and the further one is a MSR Hubba tent. The MSR Hubba runs about $285 and is just about the same as the Zephyr ins every way except it is almost double the price. The Zephyr never took me more than 1 minutes to set up, it offers a full mess upper structure for warm nights and star gazing with the optional wind, snow, and rain guard. There is a pocket on the inner side, and also a bonus small 6inch by 6inch mesh hammock to store a book, light, or what ever you want. I am 6.1" and I felt very comfortable in this tent with room to stretch and enough room to change clothing. The weight of this tent is unnoticeable, my only complaint is that I wish the it packed down just a little smaller. I bought this on steepandcheap for about $80 shipped and it simply was the best buy possible. You really cant go wrong with the Zeephyr, ALPS Mountaineering has proven themselves time and time again with the best prices and great quality products.

Bandade Up

If you just need a light weight med kit with the minimum included, this is it. It is very small and light weight, easy to fit into any pack and literally your pocket if you are a guy. Throw in a needle and some thread, and you can just about do surgery with this kit, but you probably should just stick to pulling splinters and curing headaches. Its a cool kit at a killer price.

AWESOME

I bought this little guy for my lady and she loves it. It is very small, yet packs it all. It has a writing pen, scissors, file, screw driver, can opener, knife, and even a light with the swiss sign acting as the button to turn it on. You really can beat the swiss built knives, they last forever, and always offer what you need in a pinch. As you can see from the picture I uploaded, this bad boy is VERY small.

A Must Have
5 5

This watch is dope. I am a fan of bigger watches, but this one is right in the middle, the face is plenty big to know its a man's watch, but the watch band slims down as it gets closer to the clasp so you are sill able to bend your wrist. The diamond is a nice touch, but its not as cool as you would think as it is so small that the bed it lays in is bigger than the actual diamond. This is the watch that you can wear wherever you go to do whatever you want. It is the watch that will look good with any outfit, basically it should be called the go to watch. I bought mine on whiskeymilitia for about $75, cant go wrong with that pricing. If you have some extra cash and you want that watch that will set you apart, this is the winner.

Cool Leash
4 5

I bought this as a gift. The dog it is for is just a small little shuzitsu. The leash is not made for a big dog at all, it is thin as you can see in the pics. In fact there is nothing extraordinary about the leash at all, it is the bag-dispenser that is worth the money. It will clip onto just about any leash very easily with some velcro thats on the back of it. It is nice to have the bags at hand and attached to the leash so you don't end up loosing the dispenser. The only disappointment that I had with the leash is that it does not come with the doggy bags, you will have to find and buy those separate. I got this leash on sale for about $8 on steepandcheap, so I really cant complain.

The helmet is reliable, thats about all I have good to say about it. The Helmet is a bit on the bulky side of helmets, and the ear flaps are just ugly with that weird silver metal wire crap on it. My advise is to spend just a little extra on a RED, or a Bern helmet, they know how to make a helmet that protects, and looks good.

I have rented climbing shoes for the past year waiting for a good deal on some really good quality climbing shoes. I bought these at 50% off and love them. The 1st day i wore them was rough as any climbing shoe needs to be worked in, but at this point, I can imagine wearing anything else. I have had them for just over a year, and the toe and heal hooks are still catching every time. I had to tie so many laces, I never wanted to tie again. The velcro straps on these hold perfect every time and dont need to be adjusted, yet they rip open quick when you just got to get your foot out of the vice.

If you are ever in doubt about what type of sunglasses you should be wearing, these are the go to sunglasses. I wear my Electric BICKLE sunglasses just about every day, but when I need a pair of sunglasses while on my fixie, mountain bike, or pretty much any sport, the Gas Cans always come out. I beat them down, sat on them, hit by a baseball and yet they only look better.

If you are one of those guys that like the super small light frame, these do a pretty good job at both. I prefer sunglasses to have some weight and strength which the Ti Whisker lacks. I also prefer sunglasses that have more coverage on my head, again where the ti Whisker lacks. i would NEVER wear these wile doing any sort of sports, well intact I wouldn't ever wear them at all.

I bought some Teko socks for a 3 day backpacking trip. I brought 2 pairs. The socks are really strong and held up against a good amount of abuse. I took them through water, mud, and they had to deal with my sweaty hogs for up to 10 hours a day. The socks dried out very fast, and kept the moisture away from my feet. They seemed to mold to my feet, and in that protected the soft parts of my feet. THey are a decent pair of socks, and would recommend them for any hiker that wants to invest in there feet.

I have taken my Dakine Heli Pro out 3 times now and love it. It is big enough to fit all my gear, minus boots. The camel back is perfect with the hose running within the arm strap to keep it from freezing to the zipper that keeps it locked down and protected. The goggle pocket is a good addition, however I find myself using it more for my cell, ipod, and sunglasses since my goggles are usually on my head. Another benefit is the water bottle pocket that zippers closed when not in use, yet is big enough for a Nalgine bottle. My only complaints are that there are 2 main pockets with no organizational pouches to put a pen, pad, cell, keys or anything small that you dont want bouncing around.
