Kyle's Bio


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 kbrady@backcountry.com, 1.800.409.4502 ext 4420.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

I bought a large and returned it. It was HUGE. Not only that but it's gonna shrink a ton if you dry it. I just decided to stay away from this all together. If you feel like playing "how much is it gonna shrink" it's thick and comfortable. I will give it 3 stars because it feels like it would be warm and durable.

Looks Sweet

Like most boards, my stoke level is through the roof before riding it. After 20+ years of riding I'm pretty confident in my ability to pick the right board off the shelf. I focus on specific specs that fit my size and riding style. With the Flight Attendant being a directional board, I was concerned about how it will ride switch. This board is directional but Burton centered the stance between the contact points. I did some research and read or watched a few reviews where the riders claimed that it rides switch pretty well. Its always scary to buy a new board, especially a 1st generation, but knowing your specific fit needs and doing a little research can go a long ways. Can't wait to put some new Cartel EST bindings on it and take it out on a hunt.
If you would like to talk about this board or any other snowboard product you can get a hold of me at 1800-409-4502 Ext 4420 or kbrady@backcountry.com

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have worn these pants doing everything from biking to climbing, Backpacking to spring touring. Love the stretch and durability. All the pockets a zippered which is awesome for every activity. I tend to lose stuff so this helps. The adjustable waist is great when layering under .

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this for anchor building while canyoneering. I have a couple lengths cut for retrievable anchors with some rap rings on each end. When you enter a canyon after a storm, you need to be prepared to replace every anchor. Sometimes ghosting isn't the best approach and this spool gives you plenty to leave behind.

As in most cases in life, you should never leave home without protection for your rod. This will keep your tip safe from breaking and keep your rod nice and clean while bush whacking to your favorite hole. Highly recommended. Their are a lot of fish in the pond but without a fully functional rod your opportunities are limited.

Technora... More like CHUCKNORA

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This rope is great. I'm planning on this being my workhorse rope. I'm debating about cutting it into 2x100 or some variation. Why you ask? Because this thing takes a beating. I feel Like I would get more use our of it in shorter lengths. However cutting Technora will require a wrap or something at the cut ends. Technora does not melt like Nylon or Polyester. The Technora sheath is part of the Aramrid/ Kevlar family. The Nylon core is coated to help with water but if you are constantly in wet canyon I would consider the Canyon IV with the polypropylene core.

If your looking for a rope that can take a beating (or give one) like Chuck does, this is the rope for you.

More functional than your multi-tool

This jacket is awesome. I have used it for split boarding, biking, hiking, as a mid-layer and casual wear. It breathes amazing and insulates plenty if active. I did over heat for a little bit touring but it was when we were protected from the wind and snow. This might not be the jacket for just sitting around camp if it's going be close to freezing but for nice cool mountain nights in the summer it's perfect. I'm very impressed with this piece from BD and have already purchased more of their new clothing line.
