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 put over 100 day on my splitboard alone this season. 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

Fit: True to size

Size Purchased: 31x30

I have had 3 pairs of these and they all have been great. No problems at all. They are comfortable and stretch well. I use them climbing, backpacking and hiking. My only thing, and it's a tiny thing, is i would prefer a ladder belt. It can sometimes slide loose while wearing packs. That being said, it's still my go to pant for adventures.

It's what you think it is.. A pow slayer.

I'm 165 lbs and have the 157. It floats effortlessly.

It's pretty wide so if you wear an 8.5 like me, it's a much on packed snow but in POW.... Holy crap. It turns quick, can straight line when you need it and can stomp some drops.

I love it! But I stress POW BOARD

I really like this jacket. It's comfortable, warm and breathes well. I think it runs a little big. I have the Medium and it is the biggest Medium I have. I was actually able to get a small on and zip it all the way up. I have a 38-39 inch chest. The jacket is really warm though. I dig it.

I bought these as a gift. Here is the feedback.

They run a little big. We had to return the 41 and get the 40.
Extremely comfortable and warm. She can wear them with outfits and it doesn't look weird. She loves the drawstring in the back. Highly recommended if you can swallow the cost.

I just got these bad boys and man I am excited. The fit is perfect. I bought the Medium. I have a 32 waist. The legs are baggy but not huge. The stretch back on the bid is great. Keeps the snow out, fits snug and breathes well. Enough pockets to carry what you need. Soft supple feel. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

First off, I'm basically an ounce counter when I backpack. I was an ounce counter on everything but then I wised up a little and realized some comforts are worth the extra weight. That being said, it's an amazing sleeping bag that in my personal collection will be used exclusively for car camping and non-backpacking trips.

It is extremely comfortable and spacious. The design makes for easy movement within the bag and allows for you to stretch out more. It's great for stomach sleepers.
Being that the bag is a little heavier, it also is a little more durable than the 800 model. The material is a thicker because weight savings is not as big of priority in the design of the 600. It packs down reasonably small for the actual size of the bag. As stated it is quite spacious but the lack of zippers allows it to pack down fairly small.
It has lots of sleeping options for different temperatures.
