Brian Wilson's Bio

ICU RN - Wilderness Medicine - Primarily trail and mountain ultramarathon since moving to the islands and having kids. Trail running used to be training for time in the mountains, but became my primary means of sport while on O`ahu.

A true PNW boy, growing up in Washington State and spending my 20s in Alaska provided ample opportunities for skiing, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, MTB, bike touring, multi-day backpacking and general outdoor hootenany!

Graduate school and internship/fellowships have taken us the the northeastern United States. I look forward to exploring the northern New England states and the Maritimes of Canada and returning to my roots through skiing and mountaineering.

Who can afford this? I am an owner of Arcteryx gear and they make quality gear no doubt, but they are quickly becoming the brand of doughy execs and their snotty kids on day 2 of a 3 day season. The irony is that the few that could actually benefit from tech gear in extreme environs probably can't buck up. Amazing how the pioneers did so much with so little! Am I the only one?

5 5

Simply stated, these boots are amazing! After 8 years of "suffering" in Hawaii, I have returned to telemark and what a way to return. The Voodoos were comfortable out of the box and are even better after baking. I wear size 10.5 to 11 and opted for the Mondo 28.5, which is clearly on the looser end. I could have easily worn a 27.5, but issues in the past steered me toward the right side of the scale. I went sockless when cooking to allow for greater foam expansion and hopefully a better fit after packing out. I have now added the Sole EV insole and have a perfect fit! The Voodoos feel solid and transfer power smoothly and reliably. Paired with 22Designs Hammerheads, I have found my dream setup and a rig that I can grow with.
