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.

Plain, simple, and durable. Really comfortable shorts that fit and look great. I picked them up on a whim because I needed an all pink outfit for work, and ended up really liking them ha. I run between a 34 -36 waist and went for the 36 in these guys, they fit great!

Super comfortable, light weight running shorts. Plain and simple. Ive run about 20 -30 miles in them so far, and they are holding up great. The built in liner is comfortable and doesn't ride like other shorts do. I would say they run a tad small.. I got a large, and they are a little tight, but nothing i would complain about.

Super comfortable, soft mandals that fit great underfoot. They do run large though, i had to exchange mine for a smaller size. I usually ware am 11 in most street shoes which is a 43 in Euro sizing. I had to go with a 42, and they fit great! If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up!

Because I haven't made enough money to give my mom everything in the world, like she deserves, I picked up a pair of these as one of her Christmas gifts. She really liked them a lot, but they ended up being small on her, even after sizing up. She normally wears a 9 in most shoes, but the 10 was still too small and narrow for her. Great shoes though, ill be returning them and getting a bigger size!

Fit: True to size

I paired these up with a green and black Filson Alaskan Guide Shirt as a gift to my brother. He was pumped. Shoes fit true to size and provide a decent amount of comfort. You cant go wrong with the classic style and color options. He probably wears them 1-2 times a week, and they are holding up. Pretty light weight as well.

Buying my sisters gifts isn't the easiest task. All 4 of them have pretty unique styles, and I honestly dont keep up with any of them ha. I figured " its a poncho...who doesn't love a poncho?", thankfully I was right. "Simple, comfortable, and easy to pair with other clothing pieces." - words out of my sisters mouth.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: 11

Janoski's are sick. Great grip, style, and feel. Just a overall solid skate/ casual shoe. Being that I have wide feet, and they are narrow, I ended up returning them. But the sizing is true, I wear an 11 and it fit length wise. Thats really the only complaint I have. My narrow footed skate buddies buy 2 or 3 pairs at a time when they are on sale because they love them so much.
If you have any question, hit me up!

Let me tell you about these pants...
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Quality piece of a gear at a great price. I wear these everyday, in every condition. Unless its freakishly cold out, i never have to wear a layer with these pants.. they are really warm and regulate temp really well. If its a hot day, i just half zip the legs vents, and Im good. Love how the front pockets zip diagonally and not straight across, makes access super easy. the cargo side pocket is awesome for holding gear, or two cans of beer :). Im 6'2, 200lbs and the Large fits great. Really recommend these pants to anyone who needs a solid pair without breaking the bank.
- Let me know if you have any questions about em!

Let me tell you about this Filson...
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I wear this shirt A LOT. Its warm, super durable, and looks great. This isn't some thin, wont keep you warm, gets snagged on something and rips, crap flannel. Its thick, and ready to take whatever you can throw at it. Right when you put this thing on, you immediately feel reassurance in your purchase. Filson makes quality time pieces that generally out live their owners. The only reason I dont give this guide shirt a 5 star rating is because the fit. FILSON RUNS BIG.. seriously. Its not a joke. You most likely need to go a full size down in all their products. I'm 6'2, 200lbs and the Medium is a little long on me.. Although I have a jacket on over the flannel in my picture, you can see the length of it on me. Everything else about it fits great though.

Side Note - Filson isn't trying to be your tech, moisture wicking, air - micro - anti -breathable - over the top company. They make quality pieces that have lasted the test of time...usually pairing well with the beer / whiskey drinking, pool playing, dart throwing, shot ski taking, bet winning, motorcycle riding into the sunset blasting Motley Crue not knowing where you'll wake up or caring.. type of person. Or maybe you just like reading a book at the park??
Idk.. just buy the damn shirt, you wont regret it.

Let me tell you about these boots...
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are my all mountain, ride anywhere boot. Great medium flex really performs when doing short hikes into side country, charging down groomers, or getting playful in the park. I usually wear an 11 or 11.5 in shoes (depending on the brand), and have pretty wide and arched feet. I went with the 11.5, and they work great for me. They offer a lot of comfort, and support with the dual BOA's. They offer a lot of durability as well and take a while to really break in, but once they do, they are awesome. Really stay true to the all mountain, freestyle feel.

Hit me up if you have any questions!

Honestly, there isnt much to say. They kill it. Durable, warm, and worth every penny. They arent insulated, but do great in cold weather, especially with a layer underneath. I found that they run true to size. I was worried they would run small, so I went for a 36 waist and they are a little big. I could size down to a 34, but I personally like the extra space for layering and relaxing in. Carhartt doesn't disappoint with these bibs. Its something everyone should have in the closet.

Let me tell you about this Hat..

Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 200 lbs

Damn Tough. I definitely don't go easy on hats.. at all. A friend of mine picked up this trucker for me, and while I was thankful for the gift, I gave it a month to month in a half shelf life.
Man...was I ever wrong...
This hat PERFORMED. Durable, great fit, and was always ready for more. No matter what I put it through, it supported everything. Falling off cliffs, going down rivers, getting run over by my car( felt bad for that one), it didn't matter! Me and this hat have been going steady for almost 7 months now, and i don't see us parting anytime soon. Sure, its faded.. its not perfect anymore.. but it just reminds me of all the adventures we've been on, new things we will conquer, and pumps me up for the hurtles we will jump together in the future.
Get this hat. It'll have your head along with your back, covered.

Let me tell you about this pack...
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So... I hiked to the top of Angels Landing in Zion national park with this and didn't even know it was a "luggage" pack until after I got back to the car. I spent a decent amount of time in the Marine Corps. Being in the infantry really makes you appreciate the comfort a pack has to offer, especially when you're hitting that 25-30 mile mark. I'd hike a light to medium load in this pack anywhere. I'm sure even if it was packed to the brim, it would still hold strong. The pack is comfortable, spacious, and it performs. I will definitely be recommending it to friends and family, along with getting one of my own. There is no reason not to have one of these packs on stand-by in the closet!

If you have any questions about the pack, feel free to drop me a line!

This duffel kills it. It's the perfect go to bag for climbing, traveling, or just a sweet gym bag. Its durable, easy to carry, and performs! Took it on some day climbs, and I never ran out of places to stuff gear. If you are like me and tend to bring extra everything because all your friends love to forget stuff and not figure it out until they are at the wall... then this is the bag for you. even when I finally stuffed it to the brim, i was able to hook so much more gear to the outside of the bag. I hooked up the shoulder straps and boom, all set to haul up the trail. I highly recommend this bag, guarantee you will use it frequently! If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly! Always happy to offer more praise for this duffel!

Let me tell you about these quick draws.
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I decided to take some friends up on a last minute climbing/ camping trip to Mount Yonah, Georgia. As I was scrambling to get a pack together, I forgot to grab the quick draws I already owned… great thing to forget right?? I didn’t notice this until half way into the road trip to the mountain. Luckily, there was a shop I could stop by and snag some before hitting the wall. I came across the Mad Rock Concorde’s, and was skeptical at first. I wasn’t used to a wire gated quick draw, but the price point and amount was there. I’ll admit that I am not the biggest fan of Mad Rock climbing shoes, but these quick draws did outstanding! The wire gate made things so fast and easy. Light weight, durable, and affordable are some things that highlight this package. I would strongly recommend these for any beginner/ intermediate climbers as they will work perfectly for the routes you will be climbing/ leading. I’ve had these for a couple years and they are still holding strong as ever! If you have any questions about the package, or want to talk gear, let me know!

Let me tell you about these shorts...
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

They are awesome, seriously. I love the elastic band and fit. I’m 6’2, about 200lbs and the L size are a perfect fit. The material is durable, light, and breathable. I chose the Classic Blue, and as you can tell from the pictures, they are true to color. They rise above the knee, which is what I prefer for trail running and hiking. I really like how curved the front pockets are! Anyone who actually utilizes their pockets knows how frustrating it is to have things constantly falling out when you start setting a pace… not going to happen with these surefire shorts! The only thing I wouldn’t comment on (because I’m just picky) is the horizontal stretch across the thigh. The shorts fit great, but as you can tell, I have tree trunk thighs... so I noticed some restraint while squatting… but nothing that was uncomfortable. Bottom line you ask?! These shorts will perform for you, and will turn into you “go to” shorts for any activity. If you have any questions about them, feel free to shoot me and email! Talking gear is what I do!
