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.

So far, so good! These little lights pack a punch, and it's great that they offer two modes. We use these with the Yeti Generator, and it works seamlessly. Makes for great additional lighting around the campsite. Just be careful, as the lights can heat up and be a bit hot to the touch. You can also mix it up with the Color Shades for a bit more fun!

For what you get- basically two pillows in one- this thing is pretty great. It's really handy to have for traveling- it's super small to pack (roughly the size of a PBR can), you get the neck pillow for the plane, and if you have some time to kill in the airport you can stretch out and take a nap with the 'normal' inflatable pillow. It is a little weird to set up- you have to roll the one side of the pillow not being used up behind the snaps, but you still have to make sure you have access to the valve. A little tricky, but doable. My biggest complaint is the travel pillow design- the piece that runs back behind your neck is too bulky, basically pushing your head away from the seat, making it a little more uncomfortable than your "standard" travel neck pillow. It still works though- and for the overall design and quality, I give 'er 4 stars. It would just be vastly improved if that piece was slimmed down a bit!

This pad is a good balance between lightweight and comfortable. While I love some of those superlight Thermarest pads that pack down to the size of a beercan, the longterm comfort isn't incredibly high...
The Burgess Creek pad still gets you 2.5" thickness, and still isn't very bulky. It can be a bit of a pain to inflate by mouth, but not impossible by any means. The way that the pad is designed with the chambers running lengthwise almost gives you a bit of a cocoon when you sleep on it- it sort of holds you in place in the center of the pad. Great for making sure you don't roll off in the middle of the night, but a little weird if you like to sleep with your legs or arms hanging off the side (just makes it feel like your limbs are hanging out mid-air). All in all though, I'm digging this sleeping pad!

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

I originally got this for my fiance to use as a riding hoodie for spring weather, but it's turned out to be a bit more versatile- he wears it skiing, camping, and just for hanging around the house. The hoodie is super comfy, and the fabric helps to shed light moisture. As far as sizing goes, we both have found Burton hoodies to run a little small- he usually takes a Large in most shirts/jackets, but I got the XL in this so he can have a little extra room for skiing. The fit turned out to be great- a little roomier, but not stupid baggy.

The Canyonlands Hoodie is a great lightweight model, perfect for casual or active wear. The hard-face fleece helps to block the wind a bit better, while staying soft and cozy on the interior. The active fit is nice too- no need to size up, unless you prefer a baggier fit or want to layer it over something pretty thick. All in all, good n' functional lightweight hoodie!

I got these for my fiance as a pair of comfortable shoes around the house for the warmer months (as slippers are just too much) and he loves them. They've expanded beyond just use around the house- probably going to need to get him a second pair... They are thick and pretty sturdy- the footbed is pretty dreamy- although my feet are noticeably smaller, I've definitely put them on and can see the appeal on that EVA egg crate. The fit is true too- he typically wears a 10.5 in normal shoes, and 11.0 in flips- the 11s were perfect. Great pair of flip flops to add to the closet!

I got these for my fiance, and as soon as they showed up, I had immediate sweatpant envy. I wish they had these for the ladies. The pants are super soft, wick moisture, and aren't absurdly heavyweight. The fit on them is great too- roomy for comfort, but still with some definition to the cut. He wore them during our most recent international travel, and said they were top notch comfy. He wears a 31-32 waist in most pants, and got these in the L- they have a bit of extra room, but the drawstring waist ensures that they still fit.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I've gotten quite a few of the Meridian Line shirts for my fiance, and they typically fit spot on in a size Large. For one reason or another, this one arrived and was noticeably shorter. My guess is that it was a manufacturers defect, as every other Meridian Line shirt has fit the same except for this one. Loved the print, but had to return.

I really wanted to love these- the length was perfect, the fabric is soft, and they looked great on while I was just standing. But as soon as I started to walk, the front bottom seam stuck to my thighs- there's zero give to the fabric, no stretch. It would have been miserable trying to walk around in these! I have an athletic build- I wear a 25 in jeans, but have big quads. Maybe it was just an issue of thunder-thighs, but these just weren't a good match for me.

This top is super amazing! It's well-made, and if you get the sizing right, it's fairly supportive for your casual water activities. I wish there was an XL for slightly more coverage, but as it is I got the L and it still works (I am a 32F bust).
The criss-cross ties are awesome- it may have taken me some time to figure out how to put the thing on, but once I did it was super cute. The removable padding is a nice plus too! All in all, super happy with my first Vitamin A swimsuit- definitely would recommend!

I picked up this liner for international travel, and I'm definitely glad I had it with me. It's pretty roomy, so you can comfortably sleep on your side. Very easy to wash too, which is a plus! The cotton isn't super soft, but I imagine with some more use and washings, it will soften up a bit. Great to have in your bag when sleeping in questionable places where you don't want to touch the sheets, and also great to use as an actual sleeping bag liner to help the longevity and cleanliness of your bag.

I never would have thought that bike gloves were so important. Little did I know... I got these after losing my last pair, which didn't have any sort of padding. My hands get super sore on longer rides or a full day of downhill riding. The gel inserts on these are AWESOME. By no means does it completely eliminate the problem, but it noticeably helps. The mesh body of the glove breathes pretty well, and the silicone on the fingers helps keep your fingers stay in place. They seem to be pretty durable so far too after putting a couple months of riding on them.
As far as sizing goes, I am usually a women's M (going off of my Black Diamond ski gloves) and the medium in these fits perfect. Definitely would recommend!

We've been through a slew of different leashes with our newfie, and this one so far is the favorite. The padded clip handle is great- it's comfortable, easy to adjust, and makes it easy to clip her to something as well. My personal fav is the traffic handle- when I want her to stick close to my side, this makes it easy. The Talon Clip rocks too, by far the easiest to get on and off- especially with one hand. All in all, definitely would recommend to accessorize your pup!

This is a great addition to have for any international traveler! We originally picked it up for a trip to Greece, and I'm sure we will be using it again on the next trip out of the country. It looks a little confusing to function at first, but it turns out to be super easy. You can just pop the small piece off from the main charger and plug that in to the outlet- and then charge 2 devices by USB cords. Super easy, it works, and it covers a whole list of different countries.

It is basically the worst when you're stuck on a long flight, you're really tired, but you can't get any sleep because the lights are too bright. Here is where this little guy comes to the rescue. It's small and light to pack, comfortable to wear, and does the trick at blocking the light. Definitely would recommend to have on hand!

I picked this up for my man before vacay, and it's a winner. The print is super fun without being over-the-top-obnoxious, and the more modern cut makes it easy to spice up your wardrobe. The fabric is OK- not anything fancy, but definitely worth the price!
