Diana Jenson's Bio

I have lived in Utah my whole life. When I was younger I was never really exposed to the outdoors, I knew it existed but never knew the endless opportunities that were available for me out there. I grew up traveling around the world and seeing its beauty but never really pitched a tent until I was 21. My family and friends knew nothing about the outdoors and neither did I. The thought of being in nature intrigued me but I never knew how I would get there, until one day I just went for it. I bought climbing and camping stuff and decided to just go to the climbing gym. I got a gym pass right off of the bat and really only had a couple of acquaintances in the gym, which was scary, but before I knew it I had made lots of friends who were willing to climb with me and teaching me how to be a safe climber. I became, like everyone else who climbs, addicted. As soon as I knew what I was doing inside and felt comfortable with climbing on plastic I started climbing outside and never go back to the gym unless the weather is bad. I travel to climb a lot. I pitch a tent almost every weekend and climb somewhere and I have never been happier. So if you aren’t doing something that you have always wanted to do just go for it, be smart about it and learn the right way to do things, but just get out there and you will eventually meet people who can show you the way, it might be scary but it is worth it.

Size Purchased: 0 then a 2

I got these in grey and I absolutely love them! I am 5'4 and 110 lbs a size 0 to start out with and had to move to a size 2 and the size 2 fits perfect. I feel like I am either an XS or a S in Patagonia but have to try on the pants first before I buy them so I know if they run small or are true to size. These shorts I feel run a little small and are a little tight around the thighs but the next size bigger fit me perfectly. I wear these shorts hiking all of the time and I absolutely love them and recommend them!

This shirt is so cute, but doesn't fit my body type at all. I am 5'4 and 110lbs and I have a really hard time finding clothes that have a relaxed fit like this shirt to fit me, it just looks like it hangs off of me a little too much. This shirt is very beautiful and has wonderful colors so If you are a girl who you know that the relaxed fit looks good on you I would definitely recommend this shirt!

This stove is awesome! It boils water really fast and is great to take backpacking! I have used it multiples times and have never had any problems with it besides the flame blowing out when it is really windy. If you plan on boiling a lot of water or melting a lot this stove is perfect and I definitely recommend it!

I really love this shirt but it fits me funny. The XS is a little tight and short but I feel like the size Small is too big. I went with the XS and still wear it all the time but always wish it was a little bit bigger and longer. The shirt is a good weight fabric for the summer and is perfect for hiking and climbing!

I really like these climbing pants. I bought a size zero and they are a little tight around my legs but fit my waist great. I wish they were a little bit more stretchy but they are really durable and I am able to climb in them great with the stretch that they have. I have worn them trad climbing and scrambling many times and they have held up great! i

I absolutely love this shoe! I use it for trad climbing and love it! I wear a regular shoe size 6.5/7.0 and got a size 35.00. They are very snug but that is how I like my shoes but if you have the same shoe size as me I would definitely a get size 35.5 unless you like really tight shoes. It took me about a week to break my shoes in and it hurt but now they fit me perfectly but it isn't that ideal to break in a trad shoe. The rubber on these shoes is awesome and the fit is perfect I tried on many pairs of shoes that I could use for trad and liked these the best. They are great!

I bought this for snowboarding this year and I absolutely love it! It is the most comfortable base layer that I own. I love how it is a one piece I feel like I am always trying to tuck in my base layers other wise and it gets really annoying so this is the perfect fix for that. It has an opening in the bottom so you can go to the bathroom easily and has a tie around the waist so you can make it as tight as you want. I got the size small and it fits me perfectly. I definitely recommend this!

I often go to on long weekend trips where the nearest town is more than an hour away. There are so many streams and rivers around it is nice having this to filter my water instead of having to bring all my water. This filter is very easy to use I just hang it on my car once it is filled out if there is no tree around and use it! It makes my life way easier and leaves more room for other things than water in my car. I absolutely LOVE IT!

I bought these shoes to work out and run in and I absolutely love them! They are very comfortable and supportive . They are snug around my foot but give me enough to move. My foot size is in between a 6.5 and a 7.0 and bought the 7's and they fit perfect.

I bought this for my Boyfriend and he loves it! He is always traveling and needs a place for all of his toiletries and this is the perfect size for everything. The quality of the bag is amazing and I feel like it is going to last a very long time.

I really like this helmet. I usually have a hard time finding a helmet that fits my small head but the Size 1 helmet fits perfect. I don't notice it or feel super goofy in it either. This helmet is adjustable in the back which makes for a nice snug fit. The buckle on it is magnetic so it is very easy to put on and take off but is always secure on your head. I definitely recommend this helmet!

I wish this shirt fit me. It is the cutest shirt in person and fits me very well all but the shoulders. I have very broad climbing shoulders and the inseam where the shoulder starts was too short so it looked funny on me. This shirt would be so cute if you don't have bigger shoulders!

I love these pants so much that I have every color! They are very light weight and let me climb with out any restrictions. They have an elastic band for the waist do you don't have to worry about your pants falling down. I am 5'4 and weigh 111 lbs and the size small fits perfect on me. I definitely recommend these pants!

I love these! I wear them everywhere and have never had one complaint! They have an awesome speed lace on them that makes them super easy to put on. I think for places like utah where there is a lot of hills and dirt that the sole is awesome and can dig in the ground deep so you don't slide around that much. I usually wear a size 6.5 shoe but got a size 7 to give myself a little room to run in so my food doesn't hit the top of the shoe ever.
