Darick Nace's Bio

I grew up on the East Coast in PA. I always loved the mountains and any activity that took me to them - biking, hiking, skiing, etc. I would dream of my family's yearly trips to Stowe, Vermont just to get a taste of elevation.

Then, I finally experienced the west in 2014, when my family visited CO for a week. When we left, I knew: "I have to find a way to get out here!" I'm so thankful to now be working for Backcountry in as beautiful a place as Utah - where all my favorite activities are right in my backyard.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked up a pair of these last summer and they quickly became my favorite shorts. I previously used Fox's Ranger shorts & Yeti's Tellers and these are a step up in all day comfort and storage options/venting. As for fit, I think they run a little big. I'm a large in my other shorts, including other Yeti's, but I could wear a medium in these. Otherwise, I plan to keep purchasing more for all my future adventures.

After spending good money on a nice bike & rack, picking up some locks is a no-brainer. They won't guarantee you bike's safety, but do provide peace of mind should you need to step away. I've been using Thule's lock cylinders for a couple years now and haven't had any issues.

My brother's had these for over a year now. As his first pair from DPS, they won't be his last. He's taken them in both VT & UT and they've been great in each. They're a bit stiffer ski, which is great for those who enjoy it, but they do take a bit more effort. The wide nose helps a lot for those deeper days. It's a great, versatile ski that excels in various conditions.

After having the Stretch Zion shorts, my Dad got a pair of the pants for Christmas and loves them. The fit and feel is great and he loves the breathability. But, he says they're not good for colder-weather use - strictly late-spring through early-fall.

My Mom got this for Christmas this year and loves it. It's nice and stretchy for a good fit. And she loves the very soft high-loft fleece interior. She normally wears a Small and the XS fits great.

My brother's had a Cerium SV for a couple years now and decided to get me one for Christmas. He's always referred to it as a sleeping bag and he's not far off - it's like wearing a furnace. Historically, I've stuck with the Atom LT & AR, and have been content with those jackets for winter layering. But, this is in a totally different league. No more having to wear a flannel/hoodie under my Atom AR. You only need a light shirt under this, or you'll be too hot. I'm really looking forward to using it more this winter and utilizing it on future adventures.

My brother got this recently and loves it. The fit is total Arc'teryx and it looks great in person. He especially likes how the cinch cord is on the interior and not at the hem. This way, you can cinch it tight for warmth, while still keeping the hem loose for a nice look. As for warmth, the insulation amount is comparable to the Atom LT, but is warmer when you consider the Gore-Tex.

A friend got a Camp blanket recently and loves it. He loves the Lake color and is glad he got it in the queen size. He's looking forward to having it for future adventures, especially as it breaks in and gets softer.

My brother got a pair of these recently to replace his torn Prana Bridger jeans. He's been blown away by how comfortable they are. The Bridger has always been his standard, but says these are way more comfortable. Similar to the Bridger, these provide a nice slim fit at the waist and thighs, but give more room below the knee. I'm sure he'll be picking up more of these soon.

Picked up my 3rd Fjord flannel recently and am continually impressed. The quality hasn't declined in my three years of wearing them and they only get softer and more comfortable the longer they're worn. I plan to keep growing my collection as long as the prices don't rise.
