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.

My brothers love hunting. The only thing about hunting season is it is their hands usually get really cold. I decided to get these gloves for them for an early Christmas present and they are so happy with them. They say that they are the warmest gloves they have had and that they are very comfortable. They said they would recommend them to all their hunting buddies.

These are the "SOLUTION"

I love my solutions. I typically wear a size 6.5 street shoe and got a size 35 in my solutions. They were pretty snug and hurt a little bit when I got them but have stretched just enough. I tried on a size 35.5 and it felt great length wise, but the heel was a little too loose. Make sure when trying these on your heel doesn't slip around at all, as it might effect your heel hooking abilities. One thing that shocks me about these aggressive shoes is that they are great on slab when bouldering. TRY THEM OUT!

Best Climbing Pants!

These pants are amazing! They might fit a little bit big, but they are great for ANY activity. They let you stretch and move how ever you want to. These are my favorite pants to climb in, I can do any climbing move and they won't restrict me. I am 5'4 and am 110lbs I wear a size zero. They are a little bit big on me around the waist and the butt but it doesn't bother me.

R1 Killing it in the heart of winter

I have been bouldering in Utah all winter with temperatures around 25 degrees and all I need while climbing is a base layer and my R1. I am stoked! I have never been happier with a piece of clothing in my life! It is expensive but totally worth buying. I wear this fleece all of the time, it gets scraped against sharp rock everyday, but is in great shape still and is going to last for a long time.

I absolutely love this base layer, it was my first Icebreaker piece and since I got it I have bought 2 more base layer tops and some pants! I am a climber and two of the most important things when climbing is movement and staying warm. I have found this piece works perfect for both. I am 5'4 and 110 lbs, I got an extra small and it is a perfect fit! It is snug to keep me warm but lets me move around when climbing. It is also very soft! Absolutely love Icebreaker!

I absolutely love this jacket! It is soft and one of the most comfortable jackets I have ever had in my life! It is super warm and stretchy which is perfect for climbing and other outdoor activities. I am 5'10 and weigh 110lbs and got a size XS and the fit is perfect!

I have never worn a flannel shirt before nor have I ever found them flattering. I always find them to be boxy and not slim fitting. I saw this shirt and thought I would give it a try and absolutely loved it! The fit is perfect and slim fitting and the shirt is actually very cute on. I am 5'4 and weigh 110 lbs and got a size XS and love it! The shirt is also very warm and comfortable. I am defiantly sold on the Women's North Face Flannel shirts and plan to buy some more!

I absolutely love this jacket! I am 5'4 and weigh 110lbs and I went with a size small. I usually fit into XS but have a longer torso so need a size small to cover my whole stomach so I don't get any wind draft up my jacket. The size small still looks really good it is just not as tight around the waist as I would like it to be. This jacket is amazing and keeps me very warm. I have been camping and climbing with it and on the really cold mornings it has kept me warm. If i need extra warmth I will wear a merino wool base layer under it or ever another jacket.

I bought these shoes not knowing what they would really look like in person and ended up loving them! They are super cute and I get a lot of compliments on them when I wear them. I got a 6.5, which is my shoe size, and they fit me perfectly. These shoes are flat with not a lot of cushion but are still very comfortable!

I love the R1. It is very comfortable and keeps me warm. I wear this in the fall and winter as a top layer when I am on the rock but keep a coat around to put over when it is cold. I am 5'4 and 110 lbs and I got an XS. It fits me great for what I use it for. It is a little snug so it keep me warm and doesn't let the cold air move in and out but still lets me move around freely.

These pants are WAY cuter than pictured! They fit really good and look really good on! I wear them climbing all of the time. They are really comfortable and let me move around freely. They also dry really quick when you get them wet. I am 5'4 110lbs and I got a size 0/Regular and they fit me perfectly!

I absolutely love these shoes! I have a smaller and skinnier foot and the lace up shoes seem to really help keep my foot and heel in place when I am climbing. These shoes are super sensitive and downturned they stick very well to the rock! I have tried multiple pairs of shoes and these are by far my favorite and most trusting pair! I usually wear a 6.5 in street shoes and a got a 5.5 in these shoes and they fit me perfectly. I have a 7.0 in the womens 5.10 Blackwings so you should go down a couple of sizes if you are a women getting these shoes. These are great for bouldering and everyday climbing, I sent my first V9 in them, they are amazing!

This shirt is a very cute athletic shirt. I am 5'4 and 110 lbs with a longer torso length than a normal girl. I tried size XS first and the fit was fine but the length was not, it came right to my pant line. This would be way too short for me to wear when I am climbing. I then tried to go with a Small but that was way to big for me so I returned them both. I think if you are my size and have a normal torso length you will be just fine with the XS.

I got this sleeping bag for my brother for his birthday and he absolutely loved it! He is 5'11 and I first got him the regular size sleeping bag but when he got in it it was way too short for him and he couldn't even fit in it. I then got the Long sleeping bag and it fits him great. Big Agnes sleeping bags are great if you get claustrophobic like my brother because they are very warm sleeping bags but don't have the mummy fit like the other sleeping bags which gives it more room to move around in. There is also a cool pocket for a sleeping pad to go in so you don't roll off of it at night. This a great sleeping bag for the summer nights and keeps you warm!

I got this top so I could wear it climbing. I loved the purple color of it but I felt like it fit me funny. The fabric of this top was amazing it was very light and durable. I am 5'4 and 110 lbs and got an XS but the bottom of this shirt was still way to wide on me. I have tried on the Arc'teryx Cita Tank Top and I like the fit on the a lot better than this on and they are almost the same so you should check out both of the tank tops!

This bra was super comfortable when I tried it on. I got a size S and wear a size 32 B bra and felt like the small fit great. I got it for climbing and wanted to be able to have the option to wear it with nothing over it around people. I felt like the fabric was way to thin, almost as thin as underwear, so I wouldn't be comfortable around people in it because it showed everything. I feel like it would be the perfect bra for running or biking if you are smaller like me because it would keep you cool and wouldn't ever bother you.
