Jordan Kelch's Bio

Pacific Northwest born, Southern raised, Midwest education but decided to head West after graduation. Utah was calling and I had to find out why so my rescue pup, Duke, and I packed up the Subaru and drove to Salt Lake City. No matter where I am though, you'll find me running. I ran cross country and track in college but the elevation and steep mountains in Utah are teaching me to slow down and enjoy the scenery. My favorite brands are Brooks and Patagonia. You'll never see me without my Garmin watch on and I really appreciate a good pair of socks!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Overall I'm pretty happy with my new Cliftons. They run true to size and Hoka is getting better about not being so narrow. I like having a 5mm drop shoe to rotate into my routine. My only complaint is that for as much foam is under my foot, they aren't really that plush. I had a previous model of the Clifton and I remember running in them and it truly felt like I had little pillows on my feet. It was especially nice on long runs and days I was sore/fatigued. I don't feel that same "ahhh" with this new model. The foam is very firm. 3 stars because I was looking for that super plush feeling.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm completely new to cycling, I'm an injured runner looking to start cross training so my review is not technical by any means. I was nervous about really long biking shorts so the runner in me chose half shorts and they're still pretty long by my standards! But, when I'm on the bike they're perfect and the little grippy thing works great. I had no idea how much more comfortable a chamois makes biking. I can actually go longer than 45 minutes now. If you're looking for a biking expert here at Backcountry.com, ask for Karissa Lamb. She helped me understand all the pieces I need to get started and answered all my newbie questions.

This top is super cute but the blush color is way more pink than the picture shows and it's completely sheer. I had to return it because I wanted more of an off white but even so you could see my bra and belly button through the shirt....

I love the higher neck of this bra but the simplicity of the plain black color. I've always been a size small and this bra fit just like all my other smalls. I don't have a lot to strap in so I can use it for a variety of sports and I don't have any issues. I'm a trail runner so this cut works well with a hydration pack.

I ordered the pink leather ones and they were fleece lined. They weren't necessarily bad or uncomfortable but I didn't want fleece. The leather looking top didn't look like it would hold up well either. It looked as though it would wear really poorly and really quickly.

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

The Stinson ATR's have the great Hoka cushioning but also great traction for trail running and hiking. The cushioning really makes long days on the trails more bearable on the joints. This new model is not as narrow as the past.

I bring my houdini pants and jacket with me whenever I'm skeptical of the weather. They are great layers to have if you're a trail runner or hiker. If it's just a bit too windy or cold, they will make your adventure much more bearable.

My go to shoes

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been wearing these shoes since high school cross country. They got me through college running and now marathon training. I love these because I don't have to get a wide width like I do in other brands. They are just the right weight that I can do my long runs and speedwork in them. My only complaint is that I think this new model is a bit firmer than past models.

I LOVE this jacket! It's light and flattering. You can dress it up or wear it casually. I love that you can cinch the waist for a more slimming look but the drop hem covers your butt. The fabric is nice and you can wear it with or without a hood.

So freaking cute but sizing is WAY OFF
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These shoes are so cute but the sizing is WAY off. I started with an 8 and my heels were slipping out when I walked so I exchanged them for a 7.5 which are still too big and my heels are still slipping out... I'm thinking I need a 6.5 or 7 but of course, there are none left which sucks because besides the sizing, they are the most perfect little gray shoes.
