Austin DeSilvia's Bio

Born in Seattle and raised in Boise. Moved to Utah and graduated from the U with an Environmental Science degree. The outdoors are where I feel most comfortable. Skiing, mountain biking, surfing, wake boarding, hiking. Most of the time its not about what you are doing, but who you are doing it with.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are awesome! Got these as a gift last year and they have been through almost a full season. They aren't too heavy so you can use them in the summer without having them be extremely hot. They breathe very well and have great grip when you are ripping the downhill. Comes in multiple sweet different colors which makes them super cool as well. I have them in red and now black. Get these and try to not like them... I dare you. Hit me up if you have any questions on these or any other TLD products.

Fit: True to size

These shorts are awesome and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I started out wearing the Stretch Zions and loved those shorts. Someone said that I should try these because they are very similar but just without the cargo pocket on the side. I have these in multiple colors and use them for all sorts of activities; bars, golf, work, you name it. Prana has it figured out when it comes to comfortable/stylish articles of clothing. Let me know if you have any questions on the fit of these or any other Prana pieces.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a small convenient water treatment device. It is easy to use and works like a charm. I used this for the first time a couple weekends ago down in Escalante and it was perfect for the trip. Let me know if you have any questions on this or any other water treatment devices we carry.

Fit: True to size

I got this for sun protection when I take trips down to the desert. This is very lightweight and also very breathable. Not only does it shade your face and neck but it has sun protection built into the material which is super helpful. I love how this has chin cord that you can take off. I took if off the first day I got this and have not yet had to put it back on. If there is a windy day in my future then I am sure it would come in handy. It also is not very loud and comes in some colors that appeal to me. Hit me up if you have any questions on this hat.

Fit: True to size

One of my customers bought these and she wanted a "water shoe that didn't look like a water shoe". These are nice because they have a sweet removable liner you can take out after a day on the river on the lake. These shoes are very lightweight but still super durable. It's also nice knowing that Astral has a lifetime warranty so if anything goes wrong, they will make sure and make it right. She said that these do run true to size. Please let me know if you have any questions on these.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I myself do not kayak but my dad has gotten into it the last few years. I got this for him as a gift and he has absolutely loved it. He wanted a life jacket that is very breathable because he was going to be using it during the hot summer days in Boise Idaho. This surpassed his expectations and he says it is very comfy on his back as well. It is not super bulky at all but yet it is still super safe. Please let me know if you have any questions on this jacket in particular.

I got this for my dog Charles because he is not a very good swimmer and my family tends to worry when he is out on the dock. During the summer my family and I spend a lot of time at the lake and this was the perfect addition to my dogs summer wardrobe. My dog wears this in the shallows and he is still able to move his arms to swim, so it is not restricting at all which is nice. Make sure to take a look at the size chart before placing the order. Astral makes great products and this is no different. If you want to ask me any questions, please do not hesitate reaching out.

I sold these to one of my customers and they love them. They were doing some exploring on the wet Oregon coast and told me that they were going to explore waterfalls and such. I thought this would be a good option for them. They said that they have great support and were very breathable when they needed to be. They told me that they got their usual size that they wear and that it fit them perfectly. Another cool feature that these shoes have is the odor-treatment so they do not start smelling bad after long wet/sweaty hikes. Please let me know if you have any other questions on these shoes.

I am 6'5'' and usually have some troubles finding shirts that are long enough for me. This shirt is not the case and that seems to be a common trend when it comes to Volcolm. I got a XXL and this fits me perfectly without being super wide on my body. Nice material and comes in some colors that are not outrageously loud. I wore this to work and got multiple compliments. If you want compliments as well, then you should buy this shirt. Let me know if you have questions on any Volcolm products.

I love this jersey. I would say it is a little bit thicker than other jerseys I have but I still wear this during the summer months and am totally fine. It breathes well and is made out of a super nice/comfortable material. I have this is in several different colors. Dakine makes great products and this is no different. Please let me know if you have questions on any Dakine products.

I love the graphics on this t-shirt and I would say that it does fit a little bit big. I like my t-shirts a little bit baggier so this is a great shirt for me. Nice material and this has the versatility to be worn in the mountains or around town. Let me know if you have any questions on any Patagonia gear.

I am tall and skinny so I have some trouble finding shorts that fit me. I like these shorts because they are not too short on me. They also are not too tight around my legs. Volcolm always comes through with great shorts and these are no different. I am 6'5" and weigh about 200. I got a size 34 and they go down to right above the knee. I got these shorts in multiple colors. Let me know if you have any sizing questions on any Volcolm products.

I gave this as a gift and was with them the first weekend they used it. She said that it was super breathable and very comfortable. I felt the shirt and it is super soft and light. Super flowy tank top and she says that she wants to get more in other colors. She would highly recommend to others.

This is a great start to any day out in the wilderness. Just add a little bit of cold water and stir. I would eat one of these in the morning and it would give me enough energy to make it through to lunch. Tastes great and has a good amount of calories. I also have tried the Strawberry one. Same story there. Feel free to hit me up with any backpacking suggestions, gear or food!
