Kyle's Bio

My hours are Sunday-Wednesday PM, Thursday AM.

Hi my name is Kyle Brady and I’m a snowboarder. I have been struggling with this addiction since before I could drive. I have moved, quit jobs, and started a terrain park as well as a contest series in the name of snowboarding. Basically, my whole life has revolved around snowboarding since I could drive. After getting sick and tired of flat land activities and compost pile ski hills in Michigan, I relocated to Steamboat. I was in search of that classic western experience and POWDER! Well, I found it. Since then I have relocated to the beautiful Wasatch Front. I found a home at Snowbird and Backcountry.com and have decided this is the life for me. Living in Utah for over 5 years has opened so many doors to other activities. I have expanded snowboarding into the backcountry and yes I do split my own boards. I have fallen in love with climbing and canyoneering here in recent years. That and backpacking pretty much control the summer and keep me occupied till the flakes start falling.

If you ever need any help with any of our products here is how you can contact me

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The thought of an extruded base splitboard was very intriguing to me. I purchased the 156 in sheer amazement that there was finally a splitboard out that was a durable base for under 500. After getting the board I am a little disappointed. What is the point of making an extruded base for more durability and easier repairs if you're going to die-cut the hell out of the base. I absolutely despise die-cit bases. Not that I have a ton of problems with them but when you catch a seam between 2 pieces it is an issue. I just don't get creating problem areas on the base on a splitboard. Another thing is I use Karakoram bindings and the Karakoram clamps are not compatible becasue the screw holes for the hooks do not go all the way through the board. It may work with a little thought but that isn't something I am willing to mess with especially with the Die-cut base. Other than those 2 things, the board looks awesome. It seems plenty stiff enough. The 156 is stiffer than my 158 whiteroom. The shape is fun and playful. If they would make a single sheet base, I would buy it next season.

I wear an 8.5 and I bought the Med. I think they fit the way they are supposed to. They are light, fluffy and warm. I bought these for mostly cold weather camping. You can venture outside but do it quickly and carefully. If you're looking for something that is more rugged, try the expedition or bootie models by Western Mountaineering. Honestly, beside the oven effect, you barely know they are on.

This years model has more short-glass than previous years. The result is stiffer base plate. This helps separate the cartel from the mission even more. It is now nicely spaced between the Diode and the Mission. The Est Model is clearly heavier than the re-flex but also seems that much beefer. I really like the flex straps. The keep the ankle strap out of the way. Obviously, the EST makes almost any stance you want possible. I have these on my 159 Flight Attendant.

Great ruck style touring pack. Internal Avy sleeve is large. Lid pocket is good sized. I like how tall and narrow the pack is. I can put a ton of stuff in it. I have not come close to filling it early season. Ski carry is nice but I like the fact I can carry my splitboard as ski's or a board. I know the pack doesn't say snowboard carry but trust me it does. Pics to comes. The straps can connect in front to create a board carry. This thing is everything I am not, sleek and clean. There is no excess BS that isn't needed. I have a Dakine Pro 2 that I have loved for a long time but when it came time to upgrade, I went with something that has a lot less going on. Clean, simple and well designed. It could use a small side or bottom access with how narrow it is. That's why is gets 4 stars.

I bought this glove for touring. Mostly for the way up on cold mornings. The windstopper is great. It breathes well and stops the wind. If you ski, you can get away with these as an all day glove. If you split like I do, you can get a way with it on dry snow days. With wet snow they will soak through.

I use this under my BA Q-Core SL to make it a true winter camping set. I also keep it in the car for crashing at friends houses. Not comfortable by itself but when paired for winter camping, it's great.

I bought this thinking it was for my fishing Lures.... guess what it's not. Unless, you live in CO, WA, OR, AK and etc, keep looking for another stocking stuffer.

Great wax for most days. It is rated for 28-18 degrees Fahrenheit. Basically, most of your pow days. Buy it, wax it, scrape it, and go faster. Pair this up with a tuning iron and a scraper (metal) and wax till your heart is content.

I have a few headlamps from different companies. all of them are good for their intended purpose. I like this one because it is rechargeable and bright. The batteries are kind of a pain in butt to access so the rechargeable option is nice. If you like helping out mother earth a little, rechargeable is the way to go.

If you would like to talk about this headlamp or any other product we sell, you can contact me at the info below.

I measured my hand and I was in the lower end of the Lg/XL. They were way too big in the knuckle area. The hand strap did not have enough contact with velcro. Other than that, they are small, flexible and about the right amount of protection for someone not looking for a plastic/metal wrist guard.

This is a great cleaner for down products.I like to use a bucket and clean one piece at a time. I then rinse under running water in my tub. Cleaning down isn't the easiest thing so just doing a piece or 2 in a bucket can help. DO NOT USE A CENTER AGITATOR WASHER.

Extremely comfy and warm.

Extremely comfy and warm. The only downside for me is the length of it. It is roughly 19 inches long. The upside of the length would be it bunches up enough that it feels warmer than a 200wt piece. A clear case of its strength also being it's weakness, at least for me.
