Christopher H's Bio

Backcountry.com’s Gearheads are your instant connection to gear knowledge. They’re passionate outdoor experts hell-bent on helping you find the right ski, saddle, or pro. Follow their adventures and exploits.



Born and raised in the rocky mountains of Utah. My love for the outdoors stemmed from my earlier years as boy in the BSA and kept growing well past my eagle and kept soaring deeper and deeper into the wilderness. When I'm not helping people find the perfect gear for their passion I'm pursuing my own taking a hike on the shoreline with the mountain dog or hitting up a near by river or lake for the catch of the day or a nice paddle. When the colder months come I'm usually deep in prayer hoping for some fresh pow.

You get what you pay for, and well these get the job done there are better options on the market for a few more pennies. However, overall I really can't complain the sound is clear nothing unusual but keeps me humming to my jams. I do however find myself adjusting my right earbud often when running. The flaw is the control panel is only about an inch away from the earbud, so the control panel adds a little weight and if your dome is bouncing it can pop the bud right out.

Love this balaclava it is lightweight with thermal stretch fleece that provides added comfort while offering enough space for clear visibility. The best part though is the hinged construction which allows you to easily pull down to talk or stuff your face with goodies! It's everything you want in a balaclava.

Pictures don't do this flannel justice. I was pretty stoked to see the excellent quality of this flannel out of the package. It's has a mid-weight feel and a style that you can dress up or down and does well under a shell for warmth. It's a cotton twill flannel, but the pattern is kind of hard to see in the pictures, but in person, it adds to the overall pleasing aesthetic of the shirt. If you are looking for a go-to flannel that you can wear on any occasion, this is it!

Great socks! I've been using these for a while now and they have held up great. Superior durability and a virtually seamless toe. Men’s-specific mesh ventilation zones provide ultimate temperature and moisture regulation where male runners need it most and two pairs at this price!

My go-to shorts for everything! The short is lightweight and comfortable enough for lounging, and you can seriously use this short for anything. It has full legs and an inseam gusset for advanced mobility, and a drawstring waist that lets you customize the fit. You can't go wrong with these shorts you will end up ordering more!

I love this jacket! It's stylish, comfortable and well made. It's a simple jacket with a cut that allows room for layering. The material is definitely wind resistant and seems pretty abrasion resistant to some good old bushwack. I would say size down from your average size, and you should be good this runs larger.

They have a standard Slim Fit with a mid-rise; through the hip and thigh and slightly tapered. As far as the above image they are slimmer in person. I also think the raw denim is pretty rigid out of the package and can cause a weird bunch or push them to sit a little awkward. They need to wear in and, I plan on doing that. Will update when broken in.

Great looking jacket just now what I was expecting. I thought it would have a little thicker canvas but seemed a little on the thin side. However, the overall fit of the jacket just wasn't for me. I was in between sizes.

Definitely thick! The thickness reminds me of those blue AYSO soccer socks that they gave you as a kid, only you can tell right off the package these are top quality. They have a rib at the top that hugs the calf and makes it so they don't slip which I love. I also really enjoy the fit and how it contours to your foot is an awesome feeling and after several washes still holding strong.

This a great headlamp to have around the house or keep in the car. Definitely comes in handy for multiple uses but really been digging it in the morning on walks with the pup. The angle of the light works perfectly on the walks and the trails. Definitely bright enough for pretty much any situation.
