Emily Forsdick's Bio

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!

If you need any advice, have any questions, or just need to talk to someone you can reach me at backcountry.

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

These bowls are the perfect collapsible Tupperware for camping! When they collapse they stack together nicely when collapsed, and are dishwasher safe! The materials used are much safer for travel in backpacks verses simple ziplocks baggies.

As always Osprey delivered an awesome pack. The quality of material's used and the amount of functionality is unparalleled. The one downfall can actually be considered a positive, the pack is on the smaller side but that helps because I normally overpack and bring unnecessary luxuries. The hydration feature is perfect with its accessibility and magnet attachment. This pack is a day hiker's/mountain biker's best friend

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this to my mega cool super strong sister! She is a great climber already, but wanted an extra little way to improve her performance on the wall. She is excited to use the different sized holes, and different spaces to improve her form while climbing big walls.

My dog is aging, but she is still more than capable of keeping up with me! Her spirit is strong, but her feets are not! She never had tender paws until the past year. Any temp from warm to cool will get her ticklers all prickly. So i bought these non insulated pup shoes for her! She loves them, and they stay on when she goes about running through the trees. The scrunchy top doesnt hurt her when removing them (she is scruffy). I cannot wait to see them in action in the winter. Protection is key.

Previously i had owned the Petzl Tikka, and really loved its simple yet effective design. This Actik is a step up! The new rechargeable battery is more eco friendly, and the lumens are bright! This design is still simple and understandable, yet packs a punch.

Nothing says youve made it like pulling your hammock out of your backpack and chilling out. This hammock allows you to relax and enjoy the view in peace and quiet. The hammock is constructed from all the most durable materials allowing you to relax in comfort. Great buy! Light, and fun colors.

This stove has two high powered burners which are very large! The stove folds down to a good size, and fits nicely in small spaces. The stove is a great place to cook any number of meals, whether you are just boiling water, or you are cooking a five course meal this stove will do it all.

Want a pan that is part of a tradition that goes back for years? Would you like to eat from a skillet that produces flavors that you cannot get from a regular skillet? Look no further, because here it is! This little nifty skillet is perfect for eggs in the morning, or pan searing a fish. A perfect addition to your car camping set!

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.

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.
