Jimmy Elam's Bio

Reach me directly with any gear questions.

I love every activity there is to do outside and spend the majority of my time on endless trails to run and backpack. I also enjoy hiking miles into the wilderness searching for hidden lakes to fly fish.

I've lived in Mammoth Lakes CA, where I trained for marathons and worked as a wilderness backpacking guide. I recently finished guiding the whole John Muir Trail, taking ten people from around the world on a 21 day high alpine adventure. I've also lived in Bend Oregon working for a wilderness therapy program. I'm currently in the amazing Salt Lake City training for Ultra Marathons and climbing as much as possible.

I take out the Ellipse for my really cold winter morning runs. I tend to overheat trying to run in insulated tops, but the Ellipse has breathable and stretch side panels and back which helps regulate my body temp really well. The front insulation is just enough to break the cold wind while not overheating you. The front zip pockets are the perfect size to stash some gloves, keys and wallet. Oh and one of my favorite things about the Ellipse is that I can put in over a weeks worth of runs before I need to wash it!

Skimo, or Mountain Running?

I know this glove is made for Skimo, but I also use it for mountain runs in the Wasatch. Obviously serves the same purpose and wow these gloves are fantastic. Super soft on the inside, durable and grippy on the outside. Email me directly with all your LS questions - Jelam@backcountry.com
