Katie Harker's Bio

Growing up in Idaho Falls, ID, I've spent most of my life outside camping, hiking, fishing, and riding. I graduated with a Bachelors degree from Utah State University and spent many days playing in Logan Canyon. After that I moved east to Denver, CO and made bikes my full-time work and play. Mountain biking has been my preferred form of cycling but I also love doing as much commuting on my bike as I can. Currently getting my masters at the University of Utah in Sports Psychology and spending as much time riding my Juliana Furtado as possible. I also love hiking, backpacking, and fishing with my 9 lb badass long-haired dachshund!

I bought these as my first rain boots and couldn't be happier! It is so nice to walk around and not have to walk amongst the puddles like Frogger. I actually seek them out now! The only time my feet have gotten wet was when I made a user error and got into to water that was higher than the top of the boot. Took a star off because these are hot! I know they are not meant to be breathable but my feet sweat quickly in 40 degree and up weather. Do run a little big. Normally 7.5, bought a 7.

Very lightweight shirt that can be worn out or while playing in the mountains. I wouldn't do any difficult activities in this shirt as the fit does not allow a large range of motion in the arms. I found the body to be slightly wide and short but was happy with the fit overall. It has a small, zippered pocket on the hip that I could use for a house key or spare cash if necessary. Bought the steam color and it matches the photo exactly.

The Atom LT jacket is one of Arc'teryx most popular items. This vest is just as good! Stretch side panels allow for a full range of movement while doing any activity. The fit is snug but does not squeeze you. Large, soft pockets. Only minor complaint (which I don't know if it can be avoided), this material can become incredibly static-y. Not annoying enough for a 4 star review though.

Overall the recipient of the gift likes the shirt. The pictures are somewhat deceiving, however. The black herringbone pattern is more drastic than the picture lets on and the tailoring is creates a loose fit that is hard to depict from the photos.

I bought this in in small in the feather red. I love it! It is loose enough for multiple layering if necessary but does not drown me. I ordered a small, would have probably gotten an XS if it was a choice but the small fits well enough! The sleeves are a little longer than I usually see in small hoodies. The only logo on the hoodie is the small Patagonia design on the chest, nothing on the back!

I raved about the short version of these socks in a previous review! I actually prefer a longer sock so these are a dream come true. The warmest and most comfortable socks I have owned. Use them in all sorts of activities, hiking, biking, Saturday lounging. You will not regret getting a pair... or 2... or 3 of these!

I have used both Dakine and Camelbak packs while mountain biking but this is my favorite. The stiffness of the bladder keeps it from bouncing around while descending like I have experienced with other packs. I also enjoy the roll-out tool compartment that can keep your tools from inadvertently putting a hole in your spare tube. I have packed this thing for 50 mile rides with food, a water filter, full reservoir, tools, pump, CO2, jacket, and other random necessities. I was amazed at how much I could cram in here! I liked the hip belt to help take pressure off the shoulders. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was a few times the small zipper pockets on the hip belt came unzipped. Since this was where I normally stored my keys, a small problem could have become a big mess if my keys had bounced out. Thankfully they didn't!

Chums used to be for those afraid of losing their glasses even when they were right on top of their head. Not anymore! Don't see these as just an accessory for the old folks in your life. I went with this style to avoid the long tail that often ends up at the end of more traditional Chums. I leave them on my sunglasses all the time, then when I walk into a store I just let them hang from my neck. Perfect for on the river or on hikes to keep your nice sunnies from being donated to Mother Nature.

I love that hydroflask offers different lid types for their bottles. I find that I drink much more with the straw lid because I can easily constantly sip. The lid comes with two straws that may need trimmed depending on the size of your bottle. I don't believe these lids are insulated like the twist tops but I have yet to notice a difference in temperature retention. It's also dishwasher safe which is a bonus.

These were given as a gift but I have been given feedback to provide. The recipient of the gift had never used mittens before so switching from gloves it was a bit of an adjustment to not be able to truly use your fingers to grab the poles or make adjustments to your boots. However, the recipient will never go back to gloves. Despite the mittens feeling very light weight and insubstantial, they are incredibly warm and practical. The liners were avoided for colder ski days but are a nice addition to the mittens. The pocket for hand warmers are also a nice touch.

These were given as a gift but I have received some feedback. They're great at keeping your feet warm and dry, which is to be expected from a brand like Sorel. They're also very slender and light, not bulky in any way. The upper section of wool like lining is quite scratchy, long socks were required, not for warmth (even in temperatures below 0) but for comfort-to avoid contact with the lining.

I have 3 pairs of Woolie Boolie socks and they have quickly become my favorites! I have worn Darn Tough and Smartwool but these socks hold up for way longer. They are great for cycling and also everyday use. I've been caught in the low teen weather without shoe covers before with these on and their warmth kept my toes alive. I wouldn't recommend going that cold but it was nice to know they will work in frigid temps in a pinch. The longer Woolie BBoolies (which are currently out of stock) are just as great. Give them a try!

I gave this as a gift for my brother, here are his thoughts. "I am 5"9" amd 150 lbs and the medium fit perfectly! A little loose allows for layering but it does not appear baggy. It is incredibly stylish and I love the "tapenade" color. I can tell it will last a long time. I wouldn't recommend wearing as a mid layer while skiing as the cotton will take a while to dry out if it gets wet. Best as a lifestyle piece."
