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.

I always seem to find a place that the ultralight TCU fits when nothing else will. I dont carry a whole rack of them but for smaller placements these can't be beat. The blue, yellow and orange are my go to pieces for fingers and other small pockets. They just always seem to fit.

I use the megajul which I also really like. This biner makes life so easy to clip in with and when you're done belaying to unclip. It is smaller than a lot of locking biners but it makes life easier when you like to carry a lot of gear like I do. I carry two with me on trad days for top belaying. It works well even on cold wet ice climbing days.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 138 lbs
Size Purchased: 30x30

I have several pairs of these pants. They fit true to size and they are not too baggy or loose. They seem to be a bit more fitted than the stretch zion or the zioneer but they are made out of the same material.

So just used these for a three day weekend of skiing. They work really well. No moisture accumulation and were wind resistant. I'm the lowest heat setting they will last all day and keep your hands comfortable but not warm. Best to only use the higher settings for shorter intervals if you need them to last for 6 hours. The run small so size up. Bummer I didn't notice the lack of a leash before purchasing. Careful taking them off on the chair lift.
