I first got to try these boots out a couple years back at TROMP which is an annual Goretex event we hold at Backcountry. I bought them finally after sitting in my cart for 2 years because I had a 4 day camping trip in Bears Ears for a research trip. I love the lacing system which is super simple. They are very breathable but also great for stomping around in puddles. We had some pretty gnarly terrain to traverse down in Moab and I was not worried at all about slippage with the grip system. I also enjoyed that the Heel had an extra thick rubber for Impacts. My dogs were thankfully not barking after 3 days of intense hiking and my socks stayed dry the entire time! 10/10 would highly recommend! Have since taken them hiking in the Uintas and I am hyped to have them anytime an impromptu hiking trip pops up!

I took this Cooler out for 4 day camping trip down in Bears Ears. I had heard about all the praise that Yeti receives and was really excited. First off, It is a VERY nice cooler. Super well constructed and the Wheels really help with how heavy it is. I loved how spacious it was inside and how much I could fit inside. What actually occurred was my 20 LBS bag of ice was melted within less then 48 hours and I was lead to believe that ice would keep frozen all week long. That kind of took the wind out of my sails, especially since additional ice was not available due to our remote location. Guess I need 2-3 bags next time. Otherwise this cooler is killer!

I am not normally into long sleeve shirts, rather just wear a hoodie. This shirt is super comfortable, love the construcion and it fits perfect because I know my perfect size in Carhartt. I normally wear size XL but I am Large in everything Carhartt. I feel like I could maybe even wear Medium so they are oversized quite a bit. Otherwise this is an awesome Henley option. Cannot wait to grab a few more colors!

So I took this tent our from our Gear Closet for the most recent holiday weekend. It was just me and my dog Bruin in the tent this time and we both fit great. I was even able to fit a Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D Sleeping Pad inside and still have room. This tent had a really great structure as well as it was super easy to set up. As long as you can set the poles up and attach some hooks, it pops right up. I love the built in Footprint. It's very compact once the rainfly goes up and looks super sleek. Inside there were corner pockets that were perfect for your keys and phone. With the fly off, it has a really great almost 180 degree sky view with the Mesh/Taffeta placement. Great for star gazing. All in all a really great Car Camping tent. I even picked one up myself. I am anxious to get it out and see if I can fit a double wide sleeping pad plus an extra person!

I took this out camping just the one time but I loved how comfortable this pad was. It is really thick and held me and my 50 lbs dog with ease. We camped out for 2 nights and it did not deflate at all. I will say that before I inflated it that it was very bulky. I thought there might still be air inside it but even when I completely deflated it that was still an issue. Also I had a difficult time inflating it without the use of a pump. I would recommend for Car Camping when you have the space and time.

I really do like these shorts but the waist is oversized 2 full pant sizes at this point. I am a true size 35 but I am swimming in both size 36 and 34. I'd have to go down to a size 32 for these to fit without a belt. Otherwise very comfortable and soft as well.

Got these shoes for my dad since they reminded me of the Indoor soccer shoes he would rock back in college. He has loved Adidas all his life but will rarely splurge for a nice pair of shoes for himself. That is where I come in. He has not taken them off since he got them and I am stoked his feet are feeling right. Now I am trying to not buy myself the same exact pair!

I picked these up because I love Adidas and figured they would make a comfortable shirt. What I did not expect was how soft and universal these tees would be. Just like all my Adidas gear, this product knocks it out of the park! I am going to get more colors next time! #threestripegang

I grabbed this option after picking up the 2L Gore option earlier in the Winter. I have used it a few times now and really cannot complain much. My only issue is the chest vents. It is not the location but the lack of mesh in the vents. Otherwise jacket is super lightweight and crazy waterproof. I love the colors as well. Cannot wait to put it to more use next season!

I bought this as a Gift for my brother but before I sent it out to him I tinkered with it to see how it works. It really does self inflate to a point where it does become feasible to use you lungs or the bag it comes with to finish off the final inflate process. My brother has told me it kept him very warm while doing late season Winter/Spring camping back in NH. Glamping is a word for it for sure. I am going to grab one for myself to do some Car Camping!

I grabbed these pants to pair up with my DaKine 2L Goretex jacket and they do not disappoint. Very comfy and true to size. Great Venting and they pair right into my jacket. I would of course recommend layering up with the proper insulation underneath for warmth but you will be dry all day long. My only complain is they placed the back pocket of the Left Side. Awesome pants!

I actually really enjoy the jacket but I have found that Wind gets through the jacket more then I would like for a Gore-Tex product. It does a killer job of blocking out moisture and fits really well. I am going to invest in a insulated jacket for the Wind issues and I have already picked up the 3 layer Gore-Tex option from Dakine. I would recommend having proper under layers but aside from that I am digging it!
