Emily Forsdickwrote a review of Blackburn Local Seat Bag on April 3, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Just right for the repair kit, tube and snack.
I am an outdoor enthusiast! I was born and raised in Utah, and was raised outside. My passions in life drive me to the most fun and exciting places, and activities. I have been a backpacker my whole life, and continue to venture into the wild. While in the city, I practice yoga, and frequent the climbing gym. On my days off I spend them either up skiing, or biking about the mountains. Everything is a playground, and I hope to always be able to enjoy the outdoors, and activities that bring me joy!

These sandals are so well made! The leather is rather soft, but the sole is stiff. It has wonderful rubber shock absorbers under the ball of the foot and the heal. It even has a built in arch support. The straps, and the way they are fashioned are very classy. I can see myself wearing these to a dinner date, or just to work every day!
I bought a size 7 as i usually wear a 6.5. They are not designed for my foot really! i have a fat square foot. These are designed for a lower volume foot than mine. So as a result they stick out in front of my foot a bit, and i will have to "break in" the to strap so my fat foot fits nicer. I do not fault Olukai for that, and i still really love these shoes!!
So if you have a fat foot, and dont want to break in your shoes, i would look to a different sandal. Or do what i did! Size up!
With all the yoga tops getting all cute and fancy, one needs to keep up!
This sports bra is not extremely flashy, but is really cute still. Simplicity is wonderful. This top is very supportive, and doesnt pinch your shoulders. I like the key hole detail in the back.
Great work out pantie!
Real cute in the purple as well!
organization to me is a key element for a successful backpacking trip is an organized pack. This little set is wonderful. It packs down to a convenient size, and is cleverly designed to fit all the utensils perfectly. We love this system.
Local coffee tastes the best.
i love that it is not pre-ground and retains its full aroma.
Soft wonderful socks that make you feel like the ruler of the ocean!
Stance is a wonderful brand, and i just had to get more for the boyfriend as gifts. he loves them and they are comfy and soft.
these socks are deceptively long
Marjie Chose this toy today, and again she picked a winner!
She can play with it by her self because the shape of this toy bounces in all directions.
Or she plays with others. Her choice.
out of the box they wear the same way they look on the model pics. I have an athletic body, and they fit me well. No seams means no chaffing, and i cant wait to try them out on my bike!
Not to mention they are pretty cute too!
This tank is soft and super sweet. I gave it as a gift to my friend for a trip to the dominican. Loves it
I work in the retail store of backcountry. While getting coffee, Marjie decided that this toy needed to be hers. Ever since then she has enjoyed fetching it from the ponds, in the snow, and through the lawns! She is not much of a chewer, but she does enjoy munching on the soft flexy rubber of this toy!
It also helps her breath!
This matt is by far one of the prettiest that i have seen. I was interested in using it while i practiced to enjoy surrounding myself with beauty.
When i pulled it out i was in love. however it started to fade... The matt is much too narrow for my yoga practice, and it is extremely slippery. If i did not practice hot power yoga i believe this would be an effective matt. Sadly for me i have to find matts with non slip surfaces, and a thick base.
These are extremely supple and wonderfully soft, but when i pulled out a medium i was expecting it to be a bit large! I normally wear a small in all gloves and mittens, but when i tried to slip my hand into these, i simply could not. The fingers are small and long, and across the forefront of the pal, the stitching was so tight i felt i would rip it. I would probably wear a large, however the fingers would hang off dramatically.
So in summary, these are super cute, and very soft, but if you dont have long narrow hands, i dont expect you could fit them.
These boots fit great! They support my feet and are stylish as well. They are wonderful in the snow and slush.
These are great socks. They are snug and keep my feet dry in my shoes. I love the pattern, especially when I visit a friend and have to take off my shoes, I have fancy socks on!
I needed to upgrade my school bag, and i decided to go with the newer model of my old bag because i loved it so much! The new model is bigger, with all the same pocket space, and is lighter weight.
It has a laptop sleeve which can double as a camel back sleeve complete with the outlet at the nape of your neck. There is a stretchy front pouch which you can put nick nacks in, or a light jacket if you choose to bike with the backpack. It has the back and lower back padding for comfort while active, and mesh in the shoulder straps for comfort as well. There are straps for across your shoulders, and across your hips so if you are active you will not have a wiggly backpack. The side pockets are large enough for a nalgene bottle! The brain of the bag is pretty large and has a clasp for your keys so they do not fall out if the zipper is open. The interior of the pack is big and expansive complete with detailed for a student, pen holders additional pouches, and a phone pouch for safety!
Compared to the older model, this is mad from lighter weight material, and i am a little concerned about the durability of the new pack, but as i just bought it i can not attest to durability yet.
super light, nice and stiff on the high back, and the ankle strap is soft which makes them comfy. They are quite narrow and his boots dont fit in them very well. He has Nike boots, size 9.5, and they fit but too tightly.
