johngchrist's Bio

I have been in SLC Utah for around 9 years and have been at backcountry.com the entire time. I like to do everything and know a lot about gear.

When I'm not outside, you can FIND ME IN THE BACKCOUNTRY.COM RETAIL STORE!!!

I just love it there. So many things and so many things of each thing.

2607 S. 3200 W., in Salt Lake City.

Fit: True to size

These sleeves work great while wearing Black Diamond Absolute Mitten. Great jacket for sitting around the fire or waiting for water and food to cook on the middle of a glacier. I have a small and I am 5'7 If was a little tight around my big arse.... I would probably go for a med in the parka. But stay with a small in the jacket.

I loved these pants, I normally would wear a small but I ended up getting a medium and it was the way to go for me. I would wear them over all my other layers while I was "chilling" waiting for food and water to cook. I'm 5'7" 133lbs 30in waist. The extra length kept my feet warmer in my sleeping bag and the bagginess kept me moving freely when I had all my other layers on.

hat head

done with a muddy ride and i love the extra coverage this helmet offers. The way the temple area of the helmets is kinda makes for some interference with while wearing sunnies.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

For a Pow board the Salomon Powder Snake is a-lot of fun. I normally ride a 156 in a Burton Joystick or 155 Never Summer SL. For the Pow Snake I got myself into a 160cm, the biggest board I own. Im 135lbs and I can easily maneuver it through pow. It is also the softest board I own. It takes no effort to flex it and make it do what you want. It's a great pow day only stick but I was able to have fun a day or two after storms on it. If i were looking for more all around pow board I may jump up to the Salomon Sick Stick. The Powder Snake is also pretty light and I found that it was easy to ride all day without getting tired. It doesn't have a lot of pop but I feel that comes with how soft it is and I was happy with it.

Overall.... Great pow board for the price definitely worth trying if your into soft floaty pow sticks.

This only works with Osprey Packs Hydraulics Hydration Reservoir which is there new Bladder .

You can dismantle it and replace the parts as needed. The hose insert is just a different size.

This is the bladder it works with.

It will NOT work with the Hydraform bladder
