Kayla Slack's Bio

I am a Gearhead here at Backcountry, I have knowledge in rock climbing mostly but also yoga, hiking and camping! I was born and raised in South Florida near Fort Lauderdale and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah when I was 15 years old. From 2014-2018 I lived in Kansas in the Manhattan area!
I moved back to Utah in 2018 and am loving being back!
My favorite place to climb locally is Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons as well as American Fork Canyon. A little further is Maple Canyon and City of Rocks!! I am mostly a sport climber but know my way around a boulder and have tried my hand at trad! I currently teach yoga to employees here at Backcountry which is rad, my teaching style is Vinyasa Flow type classes! I absolutely love to connect with other people who share similar passions as me! So, lets be friends!

Best dress I own!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I LOVE this dress! It is my new favorite! I bought it to wear during my trip to London recently and it is PERFECT! I love the length which comes about 4 inches above my knees and is pretty modest in my opinion. The fit is very flattering, I love the high neck (at first was a bit tight and just took time for me to get used to), most tank dresses show the side of my bra but not this one! It covers my bra completely! The material is super comfortable and lightweight! I wear it with and without leggings depending on the weather and both looked super cute! I definitely recommend you buy this dress! It can also be dressed up or down which is nice!

These shorts are amazing! The perfect lightweight, comfy summer short! I love that the length is adjustable and they are a little longer than most shorts these days! They are super comfortable and just adorable! Definitely recommend!

BEST Rain jacket ever!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I absolutely love this jacket, I recently purchased it for my trip to London! It performed amazingly, it was great while it was raining, the water beaded and the jacket is definitely waterproof. I also wore it while it was not raining as a top layer when it was cold and it was awesome! I LOVE how stylish it looks, it definitely does not look like a regular rain jacket, the adjustable waist gives that really nice fit which was very useful and looked really good! I 100% recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a waterproof rain jacket that is stylish and can be worn around town without looking like you are about to hike a mountain! Also not super loud like other waterproof jackets, a little "crunchy" but like only a teeny bit!

I LOVE parks project! This tank is super cute, simple, and fits perfectly. It is a bit longer of a tank which I love because I can wear it normally or can tie it in a knot. It is a very comfortable shirt!

These are my 6th pair of Tevas, I LOVE all of mine and have been a fan of them for years! These are my first pair that are strictly fashionable for going out and around town! They are so comfortable and super cute! I definitely recommend them, I love the little platform on them as I am short and it give me a little more height! They do get dirty pretty easily but clean up easily as well!

I got these jeans for my husband who is a powerlifter and has bigger thighs. We have had a hard time finding jeans that fit and do not look like skinny jeans on him! These worked perfectly! They are super comfortable and durable, he wears them on a daily basis and loves them!

I love this jacket, I purchased it strictly for a more fashionable option when I am out and about and it is a bit breezy! It works perfectly when it is a bit windy and I need a light layer! I love the color and it looks SO cute with so many different things! The only downside is that it wrinkles SO easily which is to be expected with the type of fabric it is, still a bit annoying!

This is my favorite cardigan that I own! It is by far the softest and most comfortable piece of clothing I have! It is very cute and casual looking, I love that it can be worn with so many different outfits! Fits true to size!

I LOVE this Jetboil Stove. It is so simple to use and is the perfect size. I brought it camping to Moab and used a normal 12 inch skillet with it and it worked like a charm. Easy control over the flame and great for car camping as it does not take up too much room! Such an awesome piece of gear to have, I definitely recommend!

These boots are where its at! I wore them for the first time yesterday and at first were a bit stiff and uncomfortable (as all new boots are) but after about 4 runs they were much better and starting to break in. I love the simple speed zone lacing system which is just so easy to adjust and makes it a breeze to put on the boots as well as take them off. The boot is comfortable and the purple color is super rad. I recommend sizing down half a size. I am usually a solid 6 and went down to a 5.5 in these and they are perfect.

Super versatile backpack. Got this for traveling and the face that I can pack the straps away while on the plane and make it a duffel is probably one of my favorite features. I love the mini pack that zippers off the front, definitely perfect for day trips out and about and makes it so you have all in one and do not need to pack another small pack and take up space. I LOVE the green color. All around suck a killer pack! Definitely worth the money and if you travel a lot I recommend! I am 5'1 and 115lbs and the XS/S works perfectly for me.

Such a cute tank, love the "later alligator" graphic and the fabric is soft and comfortable. I am 5'1 and 115 lbs. I bought the XS and it is just too big under the arms and the fabric comes out from the underarms and looks odd. The only way to fix it is to tie something at the base of the racer back or sew it. I had to return it for this reason.

These are awesome approach shoes that are very versatile! I have worn them around town in the snow, taking my dog to the dog park in the winter and in Moab on approaches to climbs. They perform well in both situations, the gore-tex makes sure that my feet never got wet which is so important in the winter, the bottoms are also pretty grippy and I have not slipped while wearing them (might have been a little luck too haha). In Moab they were awesome for approaches, they are comfortable and breathable. I also feel very stable in these shoes, they have a lot of support. I look forward to putting them even more to the test once spring/summer comes! Will try to update in a couple months with a picture and more info after I use them more! The only thing that does not make this a 5 star shoe for me is that they run a tad big. I am a solid size 6 in all shoes, I have a size 6 in these and wish they came in a 5.5 because I do have to wear thicker socks for them to fit well. They are also a bit on the narrow side but work, my feet are not super wide or anything I would just compare the narrow fit to Salomon shoes which also tend to run on the narrow side. Definitely recommend these shoes, just size half size down!

This helmet is so SICK! I got the Matte Midnight/Bleached out which is so unique and cool looking. I love the ventilation on the top and the magnetic clasp, super easy to use. The adjust system is awesome, I can wear it with or without my balaclava and and adjust the fit to match. I fell a good amount in the park and felt totally confident that this helmet would protect me! My giro goggles fit perfectly with this helmet!

I got these pants in the pink color and LOVE them, very unique, comfortable and breathable. Perfect casual or climbing pant which is what I am using them for. At first the fabric was a bit itchy (I have super sensitive skin) but after a wash they were totally fine! The only weird thing is they are hard to pull on and off, the elastic waistband has a seam under it that is on the tight side so I kind of have to shimmy into them but once they are on they are a perfect fit everywhere!
