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 used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 205 lbs

I got these shoes because I needed a new pair of grey shoes and I liked the look. New Balance makes great footwear but it seems as if these might run a little small. I usually wear a 13 or 14 and the 13 in these seem a little bit tight on my feet. I am waiting to see if they break in a little bit more after a few uses. I have probably used them 8 times now and they still seem a little bit tight. I think I might have been happier if I would have gone up to a size 14. Still awesome shoes but I might suggest going up a half size. Please let me know if you have any questions on these or any other shoe you see on the site.

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

I got these because I didn't yet have a lightweight gloves for daily activities. Black Diamond makes great stuff and these gloves are no exception. They do run true to size and are made of a nice material. Pretty inexpensive for the quality of gloves you are getting. Haven't used them much yet but I am looking forward to colder days this winter.

I got these because they looked stylish and comfortable. I got the dark pair to start with and they were super warm and thick. I decided to get another pair in the lighter color and it seems as if I got a whole different pair. They are a lot thinner and not as warm. They both have great fit but for some reason, the darker pair were a lot thicker than the light color. I still wear them both but I thought that part was odd.

I go this to wear as a light sweater and I love the material. Volcom always runs a little bit longer but its not too wide which is why I purchase a lot of their product. I am taller/slimmer and need longer fitting pieces without the wide factor. Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a inexpensive stylish long sleeve. Let me know if you have any questions on the fit of any Volcom products.

I ordered this in a couple different colors to give as gifts. Everyone I gave it too really loved the material and said the fit was awesome. Backcountry t-shirts are usually pretty soft and this one is no different. Let me know if you have any questions on the fit of this or any other goat shirts.

Love this material and graphic but the fit on it was a little different than some of my other Fox shirts. It fit a little bit wider and not as long as I am use to. Still an awesome shirt but I tend to like longer and slimmer shirts and this seemed to be the exact opposite. Let me know if you have any other questions on Fox gear.

I got these for camping and just hanging around the house when it is a little bit colder. I also have worn them to many stores around the Salt Lake Valley and you get less weird looks than one would imagine. They are super comfy and do keep the feet quite toasty. Wear them with or without socks, depending on the temperature. I usually wear a size 13 and that is the size I got in these. Comes in multiple different sweet colors, and the sole is actually pretty stiff. Please let me know if you have any other specific questions on these or any other North Face products.

I love these things! It really is hard for me to wear anything else now that I have tried these out. This is a good and bad thing at the same time. They are super comfy and easily the best boxers I have ever worn, but now I need to buy like 5 more pairs. Definitely would recommend these to anyone. Hit me up if you are unsure of what size to get.

I got this a week ago and just had the chance to take it down to Southern Utah to test it out. We were gone Friday-Sunday night and had ice the whole time. I threw 2 bags of ice in their but I do not think I needed that much. I have heard the best way to do it, is use only one bag of ice and then also use black ice if you have it available to you. This thing seems like a tank and having a 5 year warranty definitely gave me more confidence when I bought it. Please let me know if you have any questions on this cooler or any others Yeti products.

I gave this to my brother as a gift and this is what he had to say: "This pack is quality, just the right size for me to go biking with and has multiple pockets which is what I was looking for so I didn't have to shove everything in the same pocket and could stay organized. Another thing that is awesome about this bag is the chest strap and the waste strap, this is super helpful while riding or hiking and is more comfortable when wearing for long periods of time. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality hydration pack."

I love these pants! I am 6'5'' and have a pretty skinny waist. It usually is very hard for me to find pants that actually fit how I like. I got a 34/long and they are perfect on me, not too tight and not too baggy either. Definitely could hike in these pants and also hit the bars right afterwards. These are a do it all type of pant. Let me know if you have questions on these or any other Patagonia products you see on the site.

These are awesome socks that I use for mountain biking. I have always been one to rock to calf high socks in all aspects of my life. These were bigger than I expected which is a good thing because I have a size 13 shoe. I definitely would buy another pair of these things.

Fit: True to size

Size Purchased: XXL

Love this hoodie! I haven't had the chance to use it much since it is still warm out but I have worn it in the house a little bit. I am taller and skinny so the XXL fit me very well. Tentree stuff seems to run a little bit longer and this item is no different. I really love supporting this company because they really do care a lot about the products they use and what effect they have on the environment. Let me know if you have any questions on any Tentree products we carry, I most likely have it in my closet.

Fit: True to size

I got these for my brother because he didn't have any hiking shoes when he moved here to Utah. I got these for him about a week ago and we just got back from Grand Teton National park. We did several hikes there and he said these were very comfortable for him. They didn't give him and blisters and he went on a 4 mile hike with them right out of the box. There were several puddles on the trail and he wanted to test the waterproofness. He walked in multiple puddles and his socks remained completely dry. For this price, I would say these are awesome hiking shoes.
