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 gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My mom is getting into half marathons and was using a pair of running shoes she had had for like 4-5 years? She was complaining about foot pain and discomfort a bunch, so I snagged a pair of these for her. Shes LOVES them. Super supportive and comfortable for short and long runs. She has wider feet and says they accommodate her foot size super well. She just ran the Bryce Canyon half marathon and said " most comfort and fun she has had yet". Pick up a pair, you wont regret it!

I picked this pack up as an extra for friends. Its lightweight enough to trail run and bike with, and durable enough to take spill and hits from eating it. Its got great storage as well, so it you want to eat that mid trail cliff bar, or snag a couple pictures, you will have the room to tow some stuff. i have broader shoulder and it still fits great and doesn't move around when tightened and moving.

Honestly, you cant go wrong with the Infinity. The 9.5 saves on weight, so its great for those longer approaches to the wall. When i take people out to rock climb for the 2nd or 3rd time, I like to come down to the 9.5 from 10 so they get a feel for a more catching rope. Its builds confidence for people just getting into outdoor climbing and top roping because most standard gym ropes are a 10 mm. I mainly climbing in Utah, and this rope is great for the dry climate. If you plan on climbing somewhere with more humidity/ damp conditions, i would recommend going for the Infinity Protect.

Im just getting into Fly Fishing and was told to pick this box up. All my friends highly recommend it and say its light and super durable. They also say the added magnet closing makes it 100% worth the purchase. While i haven't taken the box out yet, i assume ill be just a satisfied with it as my friends.

First thing you are going to notice right out of the box is this jerseys quality. It feels great, and looks even better! Mons Royal makes some great gear, so its no surprised that they killed it with this one. Im 6'2, 200lbs of love, and i went with the XL. I wanted the jersey to hand a little and have more of that classic baseball feel and look. Its fits great! It just loose enough not to look like a muscle hamster shirt, but also doesnt look like a box on me. The merino mesh back is great for keeping you cool and not letting you get a sweaty back. It also doesnt hold that post bike stink in it, which is great if you like to snag beers and food post shred at a restaurant. Pick it up and let it become your favorite!

Its big, which is the main reason i bought it. Im a larger guy (6'2, 200lbs), so having a pad that covers a lot of area is reassuring. More safety = more confidence = more sending. The straps are awesome as well, being able to hick in the pad like a pack makes things way easy. I highly recommend snagging one of these monsters for the quiver, it a piece of gear you will never regret buying!

I was in between the 45 and 65 and decided to go this route because of the actual storing size. Its perfect to pack up food and brews for a weekend car camp, or for the backyard BBQ. It fits perfectly in the back of my forerunner, and looks great also. It comes with a dry tray, which is handy when you dont want certain food sitting directly on ice. She holds 28 cans of liquid courage, or 34 pounds of straight ice ice baby. Handles are burly, and the drain works really well. I like that its not so huge that i cant carry it by myself if needed. When fully loaded, she gets pretty heavy... but if you are trying to travel and bring this thing anywhere but the car or camp spot, you might want to steer towards the BackFlip or Hopper.

Im just getting into fly fishing, and this line came very recommended. People used words like " smooth, butta, boom... etc" so I'm assuming its a great line ha. Ruth Sims is one of our Fly Fishing athletes, so i trust her words. Ill update if i notice anything off with the line. Otherwise, so far so good!
P.S - So far, the only thing ive caught on the river is beers. So trust in her words ha.

Im just getting into Fly Fishing, and this reel came highly recommended. Honestly, i haven't taken it out yet, but when i do get it on the river, ill post an update. It looks and feels really durable, which makes me feel secure in my purchase! If Dan is saying its a legit reel, then i would trust it (see below review).

I picked this up for the GF and she loves it! Super comfortable and soft, she wears it to everything. The fit isnt boxy or bulky either, which is something she really likes. You really cant go wrong snagging one of these, so if you are in need of a gift for someone, go for it.

I purchased these as a Bday gift for a buddy of mine, and this is what he had to say about them.. " I purchased these shoes after falling in love with an earlier version of the Boreal Jokers, and needing a new pair. The original pair had a very comfortable heel (which is usually where It hurts first on me), A nice toe box, and reasonable grip for price and level of shoe. I usually do indoor bouldering - v4-v7

This new shoe design seems like more of the same, with an updated aesthetic. The overall feel of the shoe is very comfortable and I usually forget I'm wearing them between climbs, even during the break-in period. They keep their comfort throughout hours of climbing and have no clear pinching or rubbing areas. The Velcro works well for keeping them tight with no loss of grip after 20+ hours of use. The rubber leaves a little to be desired with grip being lost on some overhang routes, but that's to be expected with a shoe of this price. Edging is nice, and on most routes I feel planted despite the "okay" grip. I don't like the color scheme too much (personal opinion). Toe/heel hooks worked well.

This is a versatile shoe for anyone looking to get into climbing. I could see this shoe bought by a beginner wanting some "future proofing" with its approachable comfort and the ability to climb for hours/multiple pitches. Suggested Beginner-Intermediate

Can go wrong. They look and feel great, color really pops as well. I went with the blue, they look way better in person which is always a plus. The fit is great as well. My waist is between a 34-36 and i went with the XL. I have long legs and the length hits my right between the mid thigh and knee. They have great stretch as well, i can squat, jump, run.. and they move with me and dont constrain or get tight on the thighs. Pick em up!

Really great looking straw hat. Fits super well and isnt over the top when it comes to size. I have another straw hat that the more traditional huge size, but didnt want to travel with it to the virgin islands because it would be annoying. I picked this one up and it was perfect. It provides sun protection without hitting people in the face ha. Its also very sturdy, i stored it in my back pack and it didnt hold a bend or warp at all. I highly recommend picking this up!

I bought this towel because i heard if you are wet and rub it against your skin, it will leave the wet area dry?? Id never come across this technology before, so i had to see it for myself. It came in a pre-cut rectangular shape, which was convenient because i wasnt sure what shape i would have cut it into for the best results. Rectangular has been working great thus far. The towel is big enough to lay out and have two people sit on, but i selfishly use it for myself because I am a bigger guy and enjoy that this can cover my entire body. I decided to take the rectangular cloth to the beach to put the "drying technology" to the test. for such a large towel, i did notice it wasnt as heavy as i thought it would be, which is nice. Once i arrived at the beach, i noticed their were no kids around.. this has nothing to do with the towel, but it made me extremely happy. I laid it out in the recommended setting, and took off for the water. After about 30 minutes of doggy paddling, i retired from my water world to test the towels dry tech. I was impressed by how well the tech worked! my arm was super wet with water.. but once i rubbed the towel over it a couple times, it was like i never jumped in the water! I was astonished! I showed a couple other people on the beach as well, and they were so impressed! Besides the drying technology, the colors look really great and the material itself if very soft. I would pick it up before some other company tries to copy this idea!

Really great quality, feels super soft to the touch! Im a bigger-ish guy and the large fit a tad tight for my liking. It fit well, but i prefer my tanks to hang freely at the bottom VS look like a second skin. Also, i think after one wash I wouldnt be able to wear it at all unless i was competing in a back yard wrestling even. The quality is great though, if you can nail down your size, i 100% recommend getting this tank. Ill probably re-order in XL and give the L to my GF.

Sam ( the stud below me) sits directly in front of my desk in the office. I get the joy of seeing his smiling face stroll into work every morning. I remember the day he came in wearing these sunnies. It was like he was walking in slow motion.. hi fiving everyone along the way.. crushing cans off his head.. really embodying what it meant to be happy and confident with who he was. I remember thinking to myself " Man.. this is the type of guy who doesnt owe any back taxes.. the type of guy who has a quarter pipe in his back yard.. the type of guy who never turns down a coldy bev with the boys!
I was strong at first.. but after 11 months of squinting.. I caved and bought the same sunglasses.

Basically what all the reviews below mine say.. its painful! However, its get the job done, and does it well. I roll out most nights, and its definitely not something im really looking forward to doing, but always happy post grunting. Its stiff, and i dont see it getting soft anytime soon. You definitely get a great bang for your buck with this roller!
