Eli Harrison 's Bio

I relocated from Georgia to Utah in 2005, and haven't left since. My passion for the outdoors and being active have been fueled by the mountain ranges and rivers in Utah. When I'm not in the office, you can either find me on my bike, with a pair of climbing shoes, or snowboarding one of the many resorts in the surrounding areas.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first season skiing (usually board). Before purchasing, i hit up some of my buddies to get their opinion... "the Look Pivots 18 are the best alpine binding on the site. I think a lot of people look past the idea of having a nice binding. I’ve learned the hard way that a well constructed, burly binding is so necessary for a good skier. Been riding these this season and have felt so comfortable on my skis. Really go a long way!" Id have to 100% agree. Ive been loving mine this season!

You cannot go wrong with the Sandlots. "Guaranteed to make a kid run faster and jump higher" - they arent lying when they say that. I had this new kid move into my neighborhood when i was in my 3rd year of 8th grade, never played baseball in his life.. kid even showed up with a plastic glove? Anyways, since we were down a player, i put him in the outfield. I ended up cranking the snot out of the only baseball we had, and we couldnt play anymore. So instead of going home for the day, this new kid says he has an extra ball at the house and says he will snag it. Sick, no big deal right?.. WRONG. The kid doesnt just show up with a ball, he shows up with a BABE RUTH SIGNED BALL and decides not to mention it to anyone. Honestly, i do slightly hold is step dad accountable since he decided not to put it in a case, or maybe a safe?? Good going Denis Leary, you moronic smuck. Fast forward to me letting this kid get up to bat, because hey, its his ball.. Ends up smoking probably the ONLY home run of his life into the ONLY backyard in are neighbor hood controlled by a half dog half dinosaur. We were actually pretty pumped for the kid at first, then it looked like his soul got sucked out of his body, so we asked what was up. After discovering it was in fact a Babe Ruth signed ball, we tried EVERYTHING to get this ball back, but continued to fail. In the end, obviously out of ideas/ my mind, I decided to order up a pair of PF Flyers because a pickle against this prehistoric beast of a dog was the only option. They fit great out of the box! I have a naturally wide /arched foot and didn't notice any pressure points. Im usually a size 11 in most shoes, so i went with that option. Because i had to out run a demon dog, they broke in relatively fast for me. I was JETTTING around my town, probably ran 3-4 miles from that dog and didn't notice any discomfort. Long story long, i ended up getting the ball back, the dog was super nice after i saved its life, I'm best friends with the kid, and i made it into the MLB. After playing pro for a while, i decided to retire here at Backcountry and continue to let my story live on through PF Flyer Reviews. Hit me up if you got any questions.

These are actually my first pair of Vans... EVER. Which is kinda crazy considering I have a huge shoe problem and i also skate. I picked up a pair of the Pat Moore editions for my brothers Bday and have been jealous ever since. I decided to go with the classic SK8 Hi because i wanted to be able to skate them in this summer, when it warms up. I was worried about size, but decided to go true to size. I usually wear an 11 in Nike SB and most shoes, and that what i went with for these guys. They fit GREAT. Right outa the box! I have wide, arched feet and these offer great room in the toe box and throughout the shoe. Durable, warm, and offer lots of grip. I wont be skating them anytime soon, so i cant really comment on that, but ill update you in the summer when ripping season is back in full swing. Highly suggest snagging a pair. If you have questions, hit your boy up!

The Squads go hard. I wanted a big frame goggle to open up my peripheral view, and these are the ticket. Love that they come with a spare low light lens as well. The fit great, and look great. Only think i can complain about is the time it takes to change the lenses, since it not a speed system. I really got them for sunny days and don't plan on changing the lenses that much. Whole lotta bang for the buck.

After doing some research, i decided to snag this hopper for my brother. He does tile and remodeling so he needed something that was durable, easy to carry, and most importantly.. could keep all his stuff cold. I went with the green color so it didn't stand out as much on the job sites, and he loves it. He has enough room to pack a full lunch and snacks for the day, along with some cold ones for when he needs to warm up ha. The webbing comes in handy also, he will use it to hold a bottle opener or a couple small, extra tools. he can also run a lock through it so he doesn't have to worry about someone stealing it out of his truck or anything. I highly recommend snagging one for yourself or someone else, they will be PUMPED.

Let Me Tell You About These Timbs..
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Most people dont think Timberland when it comes to hiking... and I feel bad for them. I got my first pair of Chocorua boots about 9 years ago, and they are still holding strong. I recently upgraded for a color change and an updated gore membrane. These, like my old boots, were so comfortable right out of the box. I always recommend sizing down a half size from your street shoes with Timberland hiking boots. Im usually a size 11.5 in Nike, and got a size 11 in these. Fit is perfect. I have a wide and arched foot, so finding hiking boots that accommodate that can be tricky. These guys are amazing in the comfort category, and really take no time to "break in" at all. The grip and support really perform in this shoe. I took them for a couple local hikes, on varied terrain, and never ran into any slip or roll problems. Felt secure and confident throughout the trek. I'm a huge fan of you standard branded hiking boot/shoe companies, which is why I'm so impressed with these. Being a former US Marine, I LIVED in my boots. Running, hiking, going through ocean drills, traversing snow covered mountains... you name it, my boots (and feet) had been through it. I know the importance of having a comfortable boot thats durable, supportive, and wont slow you down when you are out there getting some. Pick up a pair and see for yourself.
If you have any additional questions, please let me know!

First off, Pat Moore is the man. Guy is a beast on the snowboard, so picking these up was an obvious choice. The color way is awesome, and really goes with anything you are going to throw on. The shoes themselves are more durable than the average pair of vans, so they are going to last you. Real Warm and the fact that they are basically water proof( as long as you dont dunk your feet in water) made them an obvious purchase for my go to winter shoe. They do fit a tad big though, but nothing substantial. I normally wear and 11.5, and i did notice a little more room in the toe box, but it wasnt enough to exchange them out. Overall. id highly recommend adding these to the shoe quiver, you wont be disappointed

I got this as a wedding gift (along with a 6pack of smirnoff) for my friend and his wife. They were pumped on it. Since its so tall, it really stood out and shined on the gift table. Everyone was checking it out! They cant wait for the first big snow so they can take it out and get playful. You can read how it performs on the other reviews. Needless to say, its a great gift idea! If you have anymore question on this ripper, let me know

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"

Size Purchased: 30

I’ve had these pants for about two weeks, before Everest and thailand for some trekking fun. I’ll be conducting a post trip review in addition to this one.
Initial
Reaction- Upon opening up and trying on these pants I can tell they are serious for some winter mountaineering. After trying them on some features popped up that I liked very much, like the more durable surface on the interior leg of the pant, and the hole in the bottom to allow hooking to boots. My favorite feature, upon initial inspection, was the full zipper down the side. This allowed me to try the pants on without taking off my boots and made notice of how quality quality design goes for miles. The convenient design of this pant with its use of zipper, velcro and snap buttons, shows this is for some serious hiking and climbing. The material feels strong and capable
-Zippers don't catch on anything
-Sturdy waterproofing on the zippers
-Tight seal around my boots
-Clip-in-belt works with no give or accidentally being undone under pressure

Sizing seems true, I ordered 30 waist which is what I usually wear and It fits perfectly, with good room for movement in the crotch, waist and bend at the knee.
Two weeks in- No complaints so far after regular use! The waterproofing on this stuff is ridiculous! As expected from Gore-tex this material is extremely water repellent and hold up well under regular use in snow and rain.
Conclusion-
Amazing waterproof shell pant for the price, that will surely work well years after purchase If properly taken care of.
