Glynis Jehle's Bio

I've been working in the outdoor world in one capacity or another for the past 4 years. I've been a hiking guide in Alaska and a camp counselor in New Hampshire and for 4 winters a ski bum at Alta, UT. My main area of expertise is skiing, thanks to all my ski shop experience.

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

Only used this a couple of times, but it worked like a charm. I have a Big Agnes systems bag, which comes with a sleeve for the sleeping pad--that's where I stuck this bad boy. At first it made my sleeping bag bend up in a weird way, and I was nervous that it wouldn't work well, but it eventually sorted itself out. My stretchy pad sleeve expanded.

In terms of insulation, also great. It only got down to maybe the low 40s, but it sure felt cold. Cold enough that I was happy for my 0-degree bag. And the bag doesn't have insulation along the bottom (down compresses there anyway, so it doesn't need to be there if your pad is warm enough) so I needed a warm enough sleeping pad, and this did the trick. Love it. Solid purchase.

Wore this a few times on a camping trip in the Uintas, where the weather was breezy and cool despite it being August. It's the perfect jacket for such conditions, adding light warmth while the techface fabric sheds light wind and moisture. I tried the xsmall, but will probably exchange it for the small if I can. The sleeves were a tad short, though it zipped up just fine and was easy to move in. My one concern is the way the zipper bumps up when it's zipped up, but that may be due to the size issue.

Took these on a camping trip to the Uintas, and they worked like a charm. Simply lay them out in the sun during the day, let them charge while you play, then they're easy to scatter on tables at camp for easy lighting around the fire. You can prop them up with the equipped stand, and they also change colors, but I didn't really play with that option much. A great tool.

I swear I need to stop buying Birks. It's become an addiction. This might be my seventh pair? No need to discuss the footbed, it's the same in this pair as in any, comfortable hour after hour, day after day. Initially saw these on the website and didn't think much, but THEN I saw them being worn and it blew my mind. I had to have them. As soon as I opened them up any doubt in my mind (did I REALLY need another pair of Birks?) was vanquished. (Yes, yes I did.) This has to be the last pair tho. I'm stopping after this.

A note on size. I'm seeing a ton of people talk about sizing down and I'm confused. Yes, if you've never owned Birks, probably size down from what it tells you. For example, I am always always always an 8 , which Birk's size chart tells me is a 39, but I've always worn a 38 and it's a perfect fit. All my other Birks are a 38 (except my wool-lined clogs, those are 39). So if you're used to Birks, keep buying the same size you've always owned. Otherwise yes, size down.

I'm a Birkenstock addict, but always get the classic Arizona model. These are my first non-AZ birks, and I have to say I'm pretty smitten. They do take a little longer to break in, I noticed some pressure on the top of my middle (index?) right toe for a couple weeks, and was super worried, but now they feel great! They're a nice change when I want to look a little fancier but still want the comfort of birks. The fit is perfect, I'm a size 8 in US and always a 38 in Birks and these were no different.

Alright, I'm guilty. I already own two pairs of this short. They're soft, cute, and actually feature a nice inseam that doesn't make it look like I'm wearing booty shorts. The raw hem is stitched, so it won't come undone throughout the life of the short.

I bought the mojito and the opal. The mojito is less of a mint and more of a sherbert green, which is fine but not great. The opal is more of a light pink than the faded off-white I see on my screen. Bonus points for that! I usually wear a 4 in the average pant. I wear a 2 in Prana. I ordered the mojito in a 4 and it fits great, but a belt makes a huge difference. I ordered the opal in a 2, originally to test for size, and found it a better fit. I'm keeping both.

And as soon as pebble comes back in stock, I'm nabbing those as well.

So cute and very summer-ready. The cotton construction is soft, lightweight, and breathable--and it's 100% organic. Love the little detail at the pockets and the jogger-esc cuffs.
I've read about it running big, both here and on Carve Design's website, but I usually wear a small and the small fits great. I originally tried the XS, based on reviews, and it was way too small around the thighs and rear. So even if you're petite and short, if you've got a tuchus like myself, I'd size normal, and not down. You do end up with a looser looking leg, but it IS called the Jasmine Jumpsuit, after all. I assumed that was the right effect.
The shoulder straps are adjustable.

When I think of the backcountry, sometimes that means taking time to simply lie in the sun and enjoy some peace and quiet. Sometimes that happens in your own backyard, and what better way to enjoy a lazy summer afternoon than from a hammock? Our yard is big with beautiful views of the Wasatch Range, yet none of our trees are close enough together for my hammock. No worries! This ENO hammock stand is a dream. It's quick and easy to set up, holds my double-wide hammock no problemo, and is heavy enough to not to sway in the wind or under weight, yet light enough that I can shift it around the yard. Yes, overall the thing weighs 63lb, so it's not meant for traveling, but it comes apart easily enough that if you wanted to bring it car camping you could.

I've only worn these once, in sunny spring conditions, so I can't offer a lot of weather-proofing feedback, but I have no doubt that Patagonia does a stellar job of protecting your legs when you're in the deep or wet snow. I usually wear a size 4 pant, or size small, and I found these just a tad too bulky for my taste. Were I to purchase, I would size down. Also, I know I shouldn't detract a star for this, but the only colors available were black and a khaki brown. Neither are colors I would decide to spend a large chunk of money on. But over all, this is a great pant for skiing or riding. It's got a breathable mesh lining and the perfect side vents for touring.

Bought this as a Christmas present for my friend who does jiu jitsu. She loves the way it looks and the padded shoulder strap can get nice and long. Small pockets add just the right amount of convenience for quick access to smaller items.

Not only is this hat gorgeous and well made, it's damn useful. I bought it for camping and hiking, in the pale Heather Stone color in order to stay cool in the sun. I've also had similar hats fade in the sun before, so I was stoked on the pale color option. Big fan of the felted wool material and the leather strap as well, I expect it to last for the rest of my life. My head measured about 22.5in so I purchased the medium and it fits great, with a little wiggle room for a french braid.

I bought these for a friend headed out on a multi-day expedition in Colorado. To quote him; "They saved my feet in the harshest conditions. They are great just lounging around camp after long days in boots or sitting in the base tent waiting for a blizzard to subside." Also before I gave them to him, I couldn't help but notice how incredibly lightweight and packable they are! You'd hardly notice they were in you pack, so if you think you might need them, bring them.

I own this in Glacier Green, and it's one of my favorite everyday jackets. I wear it when it's too warm for my down puffy, but chilly enough that I need some insulation. I love the fit and look of it, very flattering for use around town. My biggest complaint is the sleeves, which are a little long. This is better than them being too short, but it almost feels like there should be thumbholes. And as a result the cuffs have gotten a little dirty. All in all, though, I've worn this a lot for 3 winters and it holds up very well. I love Fjallraven <3

I love this sweater! Adorable with its stripes and raglan sleeves and boxy fit. It's also incredibly soft and warm. And while it does run a little big, I washed it (I know I know, its 50% wool, dry clean only and all that jazz. But ain't nobody got time for that. I washed it in a delicates bag, on cold, no dryer, usually handwash only stuff does ok that way) and it shrank a tad. Still fits fine but isn't quite as adorably big anymore. I usually wear a small and ordered a small. I actually liked the original fit so much I might order it in a medium ;) Anyway, this sweater is good stuff other than the shrinkage but you could argue that that's 100% my own fault.

This casual sweater surprised me with how soft and warm it is. As the name suggests, the knit is a little sheer, yet incredible warm thanks to it's partial wool construction. The hem is longer and the fit is slimmer than the standard boxy style you see a lot these days, but it looks very flattering with straight-legged jeans and sneakers. I don't really like the thumbholes, but they're easy enough to ignore if you roll or push the sleeves up.

This thing is a dream. It's very soft and cozy, I kinda feel like a teddy bear when I'm wearing it, and it's surprisingly warm. I was most impressed by how thoughtfully this was made--it's the little things that count. The interior is fully lined with a cotton-like fabric, and the generous pockets are integrated into the lining, so there's no awkward pocket bags sticking out. The interior of the cuffs are fuzzy as well, and I liked that. Like previous folks have mentioned, it's a tad boxy and the elastic waist doesn't help. but for shorter torsos it's ok. I bought this in the coal color, and I believe it is a slightly different construction than the bone or agave colorway.

Bought this for my father for Christmas and he loves it. Basically already owned it, that's the kinda style this produced. He usually wears a medium and the medium fit great. Big fan of the pure Shetland wool construction and cracked leather buttons. A well made sweater that makes a great gift. Pockets are a nice touch.

With lightweight, breathable insulation at the chest and arms, but not at the back or underarms, this is a perfect midlayer for skiing or solo jacket for dawn patrols when it's cold enough that you don't need to strip to your baselayer. I particularly like the lack of insulation at the back, because beneath your pack you don't need or want a lot of heat or material. This jacket actually reminds me of the Atom LT. The thumbholes weren't my favorite thing, as it feels like you're pressured into wearing the sleeves by design, but if you really want you can push the sleeves up and it's not too bulky.
