Chris Purkey's Bio

I was born and raised here in the Salt Lake City, UT. So I'm no stranger to the breadth of activities Utah's unique landscape has to offer. In the winters you can find me snowboarding up Big Cottonwood canyon or angling along the frigid stretch of the Middle Provo River. In summers, you probably won't be able to find me because I'll be tucked away in the Uinta's with my family or hiding in a nice river hole throwing flies.

When I'm not playing or being a family man, I work here at Backcountry.com. I'm the Vice President of Gearhead Operations. Our Gearheads are the lifeblood of Backcountry. They’re the first folks customers interact with, and the reason customers return to our site. We wholeheartedly believe service is a differentiator that our business thrives upon. Gearheads pride themselves on expertise; in-depth, technical knowledge of the gear we sell as well as a love of the activities it’s used for… Not to mention, they’re nothing short of total and complete BADASSES. These guys and gals GET AFTER IT outside! I'm passionate about being outside and hell-bent on ensuring that our team helps you find the right ski, saddle or rod.

Whatever it takes to connect you to your passion, we are here for you!

Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I've never bought a running short like this with the split exterior from the compressed interior piece. I don't fully understand the need, but nevertheless, these are super comfortable and they look pretty cool too. The fit is great, they stay where they need and breath in all the places you want. I'm 5'9" and 190lbs and typically wear between a Medium and a Large up top and a Medium down low, I bought a Medium in these.

Fit: Runs large

The Brixton prowler is an awesome shirt. Made with a solid base fabric, the print is done well and overall I'm satisfied with the fit. Runs slightly large but not enough to deter me. I'm 5'9" and 190lbs and typically wear between a Medium and a Large, and I bought a Large.
