Aleshia DiBella's Bio

Originally from North Carolina but now I call Utah my home. Living here has so much to offer and I have loved every second of it. Whenever I have free time I spend it outside. I like to run, hike, backpack, snowboard, and lots more. I also enjoy knitting and making leather goods for friends.

Wilderness, the word itself is music. -Edward Abbey

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Before this purchase I had a Platypus bladder and a cheap Walmart bladder bought on a whim. This bladder is ten times BETTER than those.

It is easy to fill. You do not have to struggle to screw a lid on or off. You simply zip it off. You can fill it completely 2.5 liters and still shut it. There is a little extra space past 2.5 liters which makes it easier to shut. When you fill it the bladder it stays pretty flat and narrow to fit perfectly in the sleeve of the backpack unlike some that fill up and become round. (Don't forget to put your bladder in first, before your other gear!) :)

Super lightweight!!! When it is empty it does not stay up on its own. Some people do not like this but that does not bother me. The lower the water level the more it slides/bunches up in the sleeve of my pack. (Not noticeable unless you open the pack)

Lastly, the bite valve is amazing. You can twist the grey part to turn it on or off. Sometimes while hiking I leave it open because I know I will constantly be drinking water. When traveling and throwing gear in the car I keep it closed so it does not get squeezed and leak everywhere.

FAVORITE BLADDER SO FAR!!!!!

This tank is awesome!
Super soft, nice flowy fit, nice cover, great for any kind of activity. Does not show an outline of your bra, belly, or hips like some tanks. Dries quickly. I would buy it all colors!! There is a long sleeve version that I may buy too for colder days.

I have wore this tank camping a few days in a row. My backpack strap wrinkled the waist part a bit but it ended up falling out a couple hours later and still looked very clean after three days of wear :). I am always bummed when it is in my dirty hamper.

Buy these!! These are my go to shoes now to wear with dresses and shorts instead of my Chacos. These are way more fashionable than Chacos with dresses. I am glad I bought these. Super comfy. I have worn them multiple days in a row. I explored a town in Colorado and walked a lot in them and they did not hurt after 4 hours! I purchase the golden brown color and love the color. Matches with anything.

RUNS LARGE. I originally purchased the size 37 regular since I wear a street shoe 6 but they were massive so I purchased the size 36 narrow and they fit perfect.

GET THEM.

I would have to say these are the best shorts I have ever worn. They are super soft and feels like you are rarely wearing anything when you put them on. These regulate your temperature well and dries fast if you sweat too much in them. I feel that I sweat less in these shorts than any of the other that I own. I have worn these multiple days in a row camping and they still looked clean and did not smell! These are my go to camp, hike, or climb shorts.
The Mood indigo color is a nice neutral color that goes well with a lot of things.
The size 2 fit my legs perfectly. I do have a little bit bigger thighs so I would say they were not baggy at all.

Size Purchased: XS

I had to return this hat before I could wear it due to it being too small. I purchased an XS tan and it was a little snug. Too snug for comfort, I could have probably got away with it. I purchased the XS because I have an XS in the Brixton Tiller hat and that by far is my favorite hat.

The main difference between the two is the top. The top is more of a cowboy hat here so that is why it fit a little smaller than the round Tiller top.

This is a great looking hat though! I was hoping to get a different hat than the Tiller but there was not another one in my size I needed.

This is a great hat for keeping the shade off your face and neck!

***Another thing I liked about this was the little shinny Brixton logo on the side. Looks fancy and the Tiller does not have that.

What a simple tank this is. I love this. The material is super soft and the bottom is flowy. I would say it does show outlines of under garments a little too much but it is still a nice simple tank that will match with almost anything. Why not have it in every color. Also, I would recommend a strapless bra or a razor back so you do not see your straps. Runs a little large. Easy to wash and dry.

Get this to match with anything you have!

Bought this to have music in our backyard or in our shed while we play some ping pong! This speaker is really small and loud. I like how small it is.

The bluetooth connection works VERY well. While camping we tested the distance out and I would definitely say it worked 32 ft away from the speaker. It does get a little spotty when you are moving around but just leave your phone on the ground and you will have clear tunes! Battery stays charged well. Have not got it wet yet but it seems waterproof.

This would be a great gift.

This thing is awesome.

My friend actually had it first and I saw her using it inside her house which I thought was pretty funny. I decided to buy two of these, one for my boyfriend and one for myself. My boyfriend used to use an old coffee filter from a coffee pot. That was very inconvenient because you had to hold it the entire time and pour plus hold the cup. HARD.

We love this thing. It has fit on all the cups we have tried, the Jetboil, GSI mug, Sea to Summit mug, and even coffee mugs at home.

It is easy to pack flat. I put it inside the Jetboil with the other gadgets.

Easy to clean!

PS. Does not come with the orange cup in the photo , the orange cup is sold separately and it is the GSI Outdoor infinity.

These are some super comfy undies for hiking and camping. Dries fast and resist odors. Order a few of these and you will love them. The fit was great. I was worried they were going to be too big but they fit perfectly.

I usually wear an XS or S. I ordered a Small in these.

The waist size in inches:
XS (24-26) S (26-28) M(28-30) L(30-32) XL (32-35)

This facemask is light weight. The Velcro sicks very well. This is a very breathable mask. This would be a great gift!!! I have one with cute dalmatians on it. Super cute and distinct. I have learned to like facemasks since I don't like wind burn.

I have wanted this Patagonia Jacket for a very long time now. Finally got it! I have had it for about a month now and no complaints.
Pros:
-The fit is perfect.
-Very warm jacket. This is now the warmest jacket I own.
-Hood is nice.
-Sleeves are a good length.
-Internal chest pocket is AWESOME.
-Glad the hand pockets are zipper pockets.
Cons:
-I have seen maybe 4-8 feathers already come out but do not see a hole.
BUY IT NOW! You will love it.
I got the Galah Green color. It is a beautiful color. I really wanted the Sulfur Yellow but it was out in my size. I do not see people wearing the Galah Green color very often though :).
I normally wear an XS in any Patagonia tops and this fit perfect. 5'1 and about 118 lbs.

These are super comfortable clogs. They do not need to be broke in it seems. I purchased these along with the Merrell Shiloh lace boot. I ended up returning the clogs though since I liked the style of the boots better. If I could have I would have kept both. Maybe in the future I will re purchase these. I have actually never owned clogs and really wanted a pair. I would highly recommend the Shiloh Clog. The color is nice and the fit is perfect. I would say these clogs fit just like the boots I kept and I absolutely love the boots. I could walk in them for hours and my feet would not hurt!!!

I normally wear a size 6 and the 6 fit perfectly.

The Shiloh boots are my go to boots for a night out on the town.

These are super cool cords! Loved the color. I purchased the Saddle color. I would say the color looks accurate to the photo on the page. Unfortunately, I had to return them since they were ridiculously too long on me.

This happens quite often for me so it is no surprise I had to return them. I am 5'1 and about 120 pounds. These pants were around 4 inches too long. I rolled them up to see what they would look like but they still looked way too long. I believe even a short version would still be too long.

Great quality product. I would recommend them to people who can easily fit into pants. :)

Got this as a gift for someone and they absolutely love it. They saw another guy wearing it and wanted it immediately. I never see anyone else wearing this. It is a super simple hat and like the other reviewer said you WILL get a lot of compliments.

I have been riding Union bindings for about 4 or so years now. Absolutely love Union. These bindings are super light. I have them on my Never Summer Onyx board and I have actually rode them on my Clovis powder board before. So with that being said you can ride them all over the mountain on any type of snow. They are really responsive and an extremely durable binding. Probably my favorite bindings I have rode. The toe strap is great since it goes directly over your toes.

I wear a size 6 boot and ordered the size small binding. Size is great.

This board is super awesome. This is my first powder board to own. First time on it I felt comfortable riding it right away! Light board. I normally ride a Never Summer Onyx. The Clovis was more poppy to me than my Onyx board. You will catch a little bit of air of the smallest mound of snow. This board is actually great on groomers too. I was surprised at that. This board can ride switch too if you please. I really like this board overall. Glad it is my first powder board and look forward to charging it again in the pow.

I ordered the size 149 cm.
I am 5'1 and 118 lbs.
