Amelia Garofalo's Bio

I was born and raised on the East Coast but moved to Austin for college (Hook 'Em!). After 8 years in Texas and 14 months backpacking abroad, I'm playing in Salt Lake City now.

I'll try anything twice, but my passions include travel, yoga, diving, backpacking, hiking, camping and snowboarding.

I didn't even know I needed Merino underwear until these - they're perfect for travel, backpacking, biking... everything. I'm not wool's biggest fan, but they're not itchy in the slightest and they dry incredibly quickly.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought this as a gift for a friend and here's what he had to say: I didn't want to sacrifice warmth or weight, and this seemed to be the bag to get. Cursory impressions- fluffy, lightweight, toasty warm, packs down small, and great build quality all-around. Can't wait to test it on a trip!

I bought this as a gift for a friend and here's what he had to say: I chose this for it's high R-value, to bolster the warmth of my sleep system, for which it does deliver. The pad is not uncomfortable, but crinkles loudy if you fidget too much, and a bit narrow, so perhaps not great for a restless sleeper. In winter those seem minor compromises for the warmth it delivers, for more temperate trips, I'll look for something wider and quieter.

I bought this as a gift for a friend - here's what he had to say:
All the bells and whistles. High quality with nice features such as the slide-seal top and "anti-sloshing" design. Awaiting more in-depth use to test with inline filtration.

This layer makes it into my pack for every adventure. I went with a Small, and it's pretty fitted, but perfect for my needs. Keeps me warm without overheating. I've had mine for over a year now, and haven't had any issues with tears or fraying.

So the Crimson color is so bright it's almost red - not the burnt orange pictured above... and that was a huge bummer. That said, this pullover is awesome! I have one other Holden jacket, and know the brand runs a bit small, so I went with a Medium this time around and it was perfect. In terms of insulation, this isn't the warmest option, so it likely won't be a go-to for cold days. The drop hem covers my butt and the side zips make the on/off a whole lot easier. I've never met a Holden jacket I didn't love!

I patiently waited for these to come in for the season and I can say that all of my below comments are still valid! The XS did fit, but I opted for the S for mobility's sake. I LOVE these bibs so very much.

This bag looks amazing, and that's why I bought it. I can actually fit my 15in. MacBook Pro in both the back zip sleeve, and the internal pocket... it's tight, but it fits! All of those awesome things said, this is a unique design with a lot of zips and it has taken me some time to get used to. I love backpacks that are easy to use and become an extension of your body (you could be blindfolded and still use it with ease), and despite having used this every day for 2 months, this one just isn't that for me... yet! It's burly and I expect to have it for years.

This is just a fun sweatshirt. Sleeves are long (I do wish there were thumbholes) and torso is short (I'm 5'4" and it's definitely a crop)... but I love wearing this with jeans and leggings, and sometimes I don't even bother with a tank underneath. It's a little stiff at first, but it's breaking in nicely and is a great quality.

I did not expect to love this sweatshirt as much as I do. It's insanely soft... INSANELY. It's interesting because the outside of the top is fleecey, and the inside is a smooth, stretchy material, which I love because fleece on skin = sweat. Also, THUMBHOLES - the product description doesn't mention them, but they're there. I went with the Vintage Navy and it's slightly more grey than the photo above. It's loose fitting, and I probably could have gone with the XS, so I'd size down if you want a more fitted (but not tight) look. I'll be living in this all winter.

For something so lightweight, this thing packs some serious warmth. Speaking of packing... it packs into its pocket with ease, meaning that throwing it into your bag is a no-brainer no matter the situation. For me, there's nothing worse than getting to a summit and then having the bonechilling cold set in - this jacket ensures I can take time to admire the views without feeling like I have to keep moving before I get cranky. I grabbed the Small for a tighter fit, but the Medium wasn't too big.

Had the pleasure of testing out every single camp chair made by Helinox recently; this one is just right. The high back is perfect for rocking back and looking at the stars, and the whole system packs down pretty small. Wouldn't take this one backpacking, but it's perfect for everything else.

I've purchased 3 pairs of these glasses at this point, because I keep losing them. Why do I keep losing them? Because I bring them on all the adventures. They're my hiking, biking, touring glasses. Insanely low price for polarized glasses that look good and are so light you don't even feel them... actually, maybe that's why I keep losing them.

Agreed w/ Eric that these are perfect for smaller faces. And I'll keep buying.
