Kate's Bio

I work at Backcountry.com as a CS sales supervisor. I moved from the midwest about 12 years ago and never looked back. I love to ski in the winter. In the summer I water ski and backpack as much as possible. I hike with my dog, love to travel and found home in the SLC valley!

At first they hurt my right ear. I tried all the sizes and the one that fit the best still hurt a little. If I pull the bud out a little after putting them in my ear it doesn't get as irritated. The sound is pretty good, which is why I gave them 4 stars. They look really cool and stay in my ears when running.

So, I got this to match my Daking Poppy Purse in Sierra. It is a good sized wallet and will work for my travel needs. It says your passport will fit in it...it looks a little small for it, although I am thinking it will fit. If not, my Poppy purse has enough pockets to house the document. Other than that it has plenty of places for cash, cards and an ID. Not bad for the price.

Got this for my upcoming Kauai trip. I like that it's floppy enough that I won't worry about throwing it in my pack and crushing it to beyond wearable. It's not too big in the brim and I'm pretty sure it won't blow off in the trade winds. Perfect hat for sun protection without looking super high-maintenance. Highly recommended.

I have always heard good things about dakine purses, but was hesitant to try one out because they seemed a little cheap. I like this bag, it's hard to find a decent bag with plenty of pockets for everything. The print is a bit much for my taste (I got the aqua native/ island looking print), but this makes a perfect travel bag. The cross body and shoulder straps have you ready for any situation and I don't worry about getting it dirty cause I can just throw it in the wash. I am impressed and will be looking at more dakine purses.

These are soft and they don't cut in anywhere. They run a little on the big side, but that's okay cause they feel like you're not wearing anything. If you're between a M and L get the M. I wouldn't do activities that could cause shorts to come off (i.e. surfing or diving off of something) in these. There isn't a drawstring to tighten the waist. If you're looking for something like a comfortable cover up, these are it.

This shirt is so rad. It fits well, I ordered a M at 5'6". The sleeves are almost too short, but not enough to worry about it. the buttons on the bias are kinda hard to button up with all the extra hood material, however, the end result is worth it. If you're looking for something with original style I highly recommend this shirt.

Got these in the black and was happy to see that the metal on these is a silver color. It looks kinda gold in a lot of pictures. These are HUGE (most Sabre are on the bigger side), so if you have a small head go with another style. Sabre has the jump on all the latest styles for shades. I highly recommend these.

I highly recommend any EMU boot or slipper. The boots are well made and warm. They run slightly small so if you're a half size go up. I love not wearing socks with them, my feet never get sweaty and the boots don't stink. I have been wearing mine non-stop since I got them a few weeks ago. I am buying slippers to wear inside cause I'm hooked on EMU.

These boots took me all around Europe in great comfort. I wore them everyday and my feet never hurt. I walking 10 miles a day up, down and around city streets. They are high quality, completely waterproof and lightweight. They are a bit clunky, but your feet are fully protected. They run true to size. I will be wearing them all winter. Great boot!
