Kayla Weiser's Bio

Born and raised out West, I love to play outside. My first and foremost is skiing- I have been telemarking for 14 years, prefer Big Mountain but love mixing it up with touring and park days. #spreadtelemark

In the warmer months, I love to get out mountain biking, climbing, hiking, backpacking, camping, and whitewater boating. I also have a 4 year old Newfoundland fur baby, so if you or your pup have any questions on doggie gear, Camber and I would be happy to help!

Follow me for updated reviews on the newest and greatest gear and adventures. You can email me personally at kweiser@backcountry.com, or ask for Kayla on the Live Chat system.

Fit: True to size

I got this for my man to replace some of his older Burton layers, and he seems to love it. He wears it both skiing and around the house- sometimes it's hard to get him to take it off, it seems super soft and comfortable. It's got a good weight to it as well- definitely helps retain body heat without being suffocatingly warm.
It does run true to size, but it is a bit longer than a lot of baselayer tops- so you don't have to size up to get a little extra length. He is 5'10, 165 and the Medium fits well by itself or over another thin layer.

Once you go with compression ski socks, you'll never go back. It is definitely worth the price- you can tell the difference in circulation both while skiing and afterwards. Since they are so tight & supportive, it also feels reallllly good to take them off after a long day! They fit true to size, and are ultralight so there's no additional bulk to squeeze into your boot. Very durable as well- though I would recommend air drying them for longevity.

These goggles are rather large- but they're pretty dang awesome too! They are super fresh looking, and offer a wide field of vision. They remind me a lot of the Lobes, but definitely larger. The lenses themselves are really nice too- haven't gotten a spare lens yet to try swapping them out, but I'm sure they're easy to swap. But they are durable, and the gold lens is good for a wide range of light conditions. Just make sure to store these correctly to reduce the chance of scratching, POC lenses will definitely get torn up if you don't take care of them correctly.
They pair really well with POC helmets for a seamless fit. Definitely would recommend!

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I can't emphasize just how cozy this vest is. I have a Patagonia R2 from a few years back that is soft, don't get me wrong, but this fleece knocks it outta the water. It's so plush it makes me want to zip 'er up and go into hibernation...
But beyond how soft it is, it really is just a nice vest all around. The leather accents around the zips are a great touch, and I love the colors (I have the Raven). The hood does zip into the collar as well, but I find it to be a bit bulky so I leave it out. It does have a nice tall collar though because of that, which I really like.
In the end, if you're searching for the most cozy, flattering, versatile fleece vest- look no further, this is your ticket.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ever since I got a pair of compression ski socks last year, I have been hooked. They are SUPER comfortable- they're supportive without being too tight, and my calves have felt noticeably better after a long day on the slopes. That being said, it also does feel really good to peel these off at the end of the day...
Compared to my other pair (also Icebreaker) these are a bit thicker. I was originally concerned about it seeing as how I didn't want to cause any additional pressure points, but after riding in them, they really don't cause any issues. I actually find the slightly thicker weave to be comfortable, a little bit of extra cush.
All in all, if you're after a pair of womens compression ski socks, look no further- these are amazing!

Fit: True to size

If you know the regular Patagonia Fjord flannel, you know how amazing it is. They continued with their great ideas by making this lightweight version for when you don't want something quite so heavy, but you still want to look good. In comes the Lightweight Fjord, and it too is a winner. The material is nice- soft, not itchy, and versatile for a range of temps. It looks nice too, an easy go-to for a casual shirt or you can dress it up. The one pocket design is also pretty fly.
As far as fit goes, it does run true to size- it does seem a little bit shorter in the torso than the regular Fjord in the same size, but it's not too short by any means.

We got these as a gift, so I can't speak from personal experience, but they do seem SUPER cush. The wool lining is rather plush, definitely going to keep your feet warm! The one downside we noticed was that the lining wasn't as soft as expected, but hopefully they break in a bit and aren't itchy. We haven't received any complaints from the receiver, and she loves to wear slippers around the house. True to size & good UGG quality

Over the years, I've used plenty of different tele leashes, and this design is still my favorite. They are easy to clip, even in cold weather- you don't have to pinch anything, you can just press it into your boot clip. They will also work with most any tele binding, not just the AXL or Vice! Definitely would recommend, good quality leashes.

I got this for my mother, who is a fan of both Pendleton & buffalo- so this was a perfect fit. It's an adorable little pouch, and Bob the Buffalo is a great touch. The colors are great too! It's a good little pouch for your coins, or if you don't want to carry a full wallet about. Classic Pendleton quality, definitely would recommend!

I got these for my sister for Christmas, and they're super cute. The pattern is awesome, and I LOVE the blues. She's been using them more for loungers & PJs around the house, and they seem to be perfect for that! Cozy for house chilling, and if you wanted to use them as an actual baselayer, I do think they'd provide some good warmth for that purpose as well.

I got this as a gift for my stepmom, and she seems to love it. It's definitely a lighterweight fleece- if you hold it up to a light you can see through. But it's still soft and comfortable, seems pretty cozy.
It does have a feminine cut, but it's not skin tight by any means- it does still fit true to size. She typically wears a size M, and the M in this fits comfortably over another layer. The hood is also a great feature! Hard to beat at this price, definitely would recommend it.

We picked up a few of these to set up a pulley system for weights in our gym in the garage. So far, they work great! They are super small and light- they do seem to be a little squeaky when you have real heavy weights, but they still do work. For any sort of hauling, it seems like they would be an excellent choice.
For users information, they will accommodate a rope up to 11mm.

I wouldn't say that these are necessarily a true "no-show" sock, but they are a great lower-ankle cut. So far so good as far as quality and durability goes- they are a little thicker, so I imagine they'll be around for a while. They run true to size, seem to be comfortable- all in all, a good basic sock to have!

This is a great hat, classic Tentree quality! It fits nice, and is very easy to adjust. I picked one up in the green colorway, and looooove the colors. I am also of course a fan of the 10 trees planted for every piece sold- can't go wrong with these guys!

I got these for my man as a day-to-day shoe, and he loves them! They replaced an old pair of zero-drop New Balance shoes, and first and foremost, he really likes the support that these offer. He says that they are super comfortable and easy to move in, whether it's for casual wear or working out. The only gripe is the big cutouts in the lugs of the sole- if you accidentally walk through mud, it's a pain to clean them! Other than that though, they're great- I've only heard good things about them.

I needed to replace an old pump that had the tendency to only work 30% of the time, and I'm glad that I finally upgraded to this Blackburn! It's super easy to use- the base is wide enough so your feet don't slip off, and it's very easy to attach to your valve. The pumping rate is pretty quick, and easy to see the pressure gauge.
In the end, I think this is a great basic pump that works, and it's a killer price too!
