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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked up a set of these to pair with my new Google Pixel. Sound is as decent as expected for the price range.

Functions that seem to work with Android 7.1 are volume up and down, pause, play, end call. However I cannot get the double click to skip tracks rather it activates google assistant. I have tried it in Pandora, Google Play, Soundcloud and Spotify.

I have also paired it with my iPhone 6s and it has complete functionality with that phone. It even displays the battery level up at the top of the screen next to the Bluetooth icon.

So if you have an Android based phone these will work with different functionality. If you have an iPhone you will see full scale functionality.

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.
