Jordan Turner's Bio

Gearhead at Backcountry.com, intern at Save Our Canyons, and student at Westminster College. I moved out to Utah five years ago for school and have loved every minute of my time out here. I love skiing, climbing, and just getting outside in general. You can find me on the slopes of Brighton Resort 3-5 days a week during the winter in the park or poking around the amazing sidecountry that the area has to offer. My expertise lies in skis, bindings, ski boots, and anything related moving downhill on two planks. Ask me anything and I'll answer to the best of my abilities/find a professional to give you the best advice possible. Cheers!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Cooper is a great mix of functionality and style, it's breathable, has plenty of pockets, and underarm venting for when you heat up! I use mine mainly inbounds on spring days where a powder skirt isn't needed, as the cooper doesn't have one. Then again, it's not really designed for deep days where you'll need a lot of weather protection. So it does what its designed to very well! It's a great lightweight shell and in the two storms I've used it in, I have yet to get wet. Would recommend!

I own three pairs of these pants, two for over two and a half years, and the third just purchased a month ago. They've held up so well, it's a surprise! They're stylish, durable, come in great colors, and can be used for all sorts of activities - from nights out, to hiking, climbing, etc.

Would definitely recommend!

I took this harness on a short Canyoneering trip to Southern Utah and it worked out very well! Had no problems at all. It's very comfortable and super light, spent approximately 4 hours in it and had no chafing or tight spots at all. Highly recommend the harness to anybody looking for a functional, lightweight, and affordable harness.

These shorts are good looking, made with super durable materials, have nice large pockets, and overall just rock! I highly recommend purchasing a pair. If you're looking for a classic, well styled short to wear during the spring, summer, fall - then look no further!

This backpack is perfect for bringing to school, using around town, or for any short hikes! The laptop sleeve fits my 13in Macbook Pro perfectly which makes it super easy to transport to class, and more than enough space in the main compartment allows for 4 to 5 large books to be stored as well. Highly recommend this pack to anyone looking for a stylish but simple backpack to use around town!

I really enjoy this boot, it is just like the Krypton that I have rode for years but with touring mode and replaceable soles. It is awesome for a stiff, hard charging ski boot that is also extremely comfortable and forgiving. I would highly recommend this for someone who wants the benefits of a stiff boot that is still comfortable.

Bought this throwback of a vest for my little sister, who goes to school in DC. It's a perfect combination of style, functionality, and warmth all in a retro package. She said she usually combines this with a sweater or hoodie on the walk to class and is toasty warm, except on truly frigid days when you would want an actual parka. Her favorite feature aside from the styling, is the fleece material. Once it has seen some use, it gets even softer! Definitely recommend giving this as a gift or just getting one for yourself!

I bought these as a gift for my mother, who loves to cross country ski. She mainly uses these for cross country skiing but has started to wear them around town and for driving when it's chilly. Her favorite feature is the fleece lining, which she says makes these the "softest glove ever." She is a huge fan of these gloves, so I would recommend getting a pair if you're looking for a lightweight, soft glove to use during light to moderate physical activity.

I bought these as a gift for my sister, who has become an avid runner over the past couple years. She absolutely loves them so far. These shorts aren't full of frilly features that are "guaranteed to knock 5 minutes off your mile time" or anything like that, they include only the essentials. A true homage to Pheidippides. They feature a pocket in the back giving you space to stick an iPhone or some cash for your post workout snack. The fabric will not chafe, no matter how long you run according to my sister. She plans on running her first marathon in these in a couple months! Definitely a must have for any runner.

I bought this hat in the Smolder Red to give to my sister for a gift and she absolutely loved it! She said her favorite feature, aside from the look (which is killer), is the mesh on the back of the hat. She is very active and it allows for maximum breathability, so your head won't overheat! If you're looking for a stylish, functional hat at a great price point - this hat is for you. Definitely do your noggin a favor and pick one of these up!

What makes this the best portable beer cooler ever? The fact that you can take ten cans of your preferred liquid courage anywhere. That's what. An adjustable shoulder strap keeps you comfortable when walking, biking, or skating to the party. If house parties aren't your thing and you're on your way to party mountain, then this bad-boy will more than suffice. Cruise on down to the booter session with more than enough beers to help you learn that double cork. The protective outer layer will keep your cans safe from prying eyes and let you transport your cache of cans incognito. Who doesn’t love a roadie? This little beast of a cooler comes with a detachable coozy so you can have fun on your way to the fun. The Beeracuda was designed for one thing and one thing only, to maximize beer portability and drinkability. If you’re wondering what you’ve be doing this whole time without one of these, you’re not alone. I call my pre-Beeracuda years the “dark ages” for a reason. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these, you won’t regret it!

I bought this tent for a 2 month long environmental science field study program in British Columbia, Canada. It performed exceedingly well and definitely met my expectations. I slept in it for two months, enduring rain, high winds, and very cold temperatures. It held up great! The seams are fully sealed and not a drop of water got in my tent during the entire time I used it. I cut out a custom footprint to match the layout of the tent instead of buying a real one and the tent basically looks like how I first got it, even after some periods of serious use and abuse. It packs down very nicely and doesn't take up that much room in your backpack when going on trekking trips. Setting it up is a breeze, there's only three sections of poles you need to set up and I've gotten it down so I can have it fully set up in under 3 minutes. It seriously is a great design. There are little pockets inside the tent that you can store stuff in i.e. stuff sacks, headlamps, snacks (don't store snacks in your tent in bear country!!!). There is the option for a gear loft, however I didn’t purchase that when I bought this tent. It would be a handy feature for sure! So I’d recommend picking that up if you’re thinking of buying this tent. The stakes that come with it have held up very well and didn’t once come loose, even in high winds. I’m not super into fashion or buying things based on their looks but this tent is really easy on the eyes. Instead of some neon orange color, it blends into whatever natural place you’re currently hanging out in! I’ve owned a few tents and this one easily takes the cake. In regards to packability, ease of setup, functionality, and durability - the Exped Mira II is a great option. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a durable, fairly lightweight tent for backpacking trips!
