Lance Haslem's Bio

I'm a born and raised Utah kid. Raised at the bottom of the Uintah mountain range in eastern utah. I spent my summers in the high Uintahs camping and fishing, the Uinta mountain's are amazing. Park City, Utah is where i ride or die. Jupitor bowl and 9990 on a powder day are perfection. I love rafting and kayaking in moab or in flaming gorge. I live for powder, glassy lake water and backpacking trips. I understand we work 40 hours a week to pay for the stuff we love. At backcountry.com we connect people with their passions. That's why i love to work at backcountry.com.
I hope that my input will help you choose the correct gear for your epic adventure. Please feel free to comment and ask questions, i would love to help.

I've used this mat a couple times at my hot yoga sessions and it has been pretty impressive. The mat itself comes in great colors I decided on the spruce. I didn't come smelling like a tire shop, that was great. It makes your yoga session comfortable plenty of cushioning. Down dog gets a little slick at the hot yoga session. I would recommend throwing in a nice mat-sized towel in with the order.

My wife loves this base layer! This is her go to base layer for skiing on those cold days. She really notices a difference from the merino wool was great at regulating body temperature. After she is off the slopes you will find her lounging in it for the rest of the day. Not scratchy at all this is a next to skin garment.

I am in love with these pants! comfortable, stretch and durable. I use these as my go to adventure pants. Fit is regular and loose. The stretch makes them forgiving for any body type. Let me know if you have any questions. lhaslem@backcountry.com 801-204-4585.

Supreme edge, wicked base, powder float
5 5

I just picked this board up and these are my initial impressions. The edge hold is incredible I felt like there was no turn i couldn't make, no matter the condition. The board is scary fast, but don't worry you will float on powder days. I would recommend this to my east or west. It's the do it all board from charging groomers to stomping kickers. I matched this board up with a pair of union

Your regular dockers are restricting/heavy/hot. These are stretchy, light and comfortable. I love that you can jump, run and climb in these and you feel no restriction. I would say these are more of a straight fit. I will actually through a button up on with these and go to weddings, they look great. Great for the trail and office.

I'm a big dude and I won't wear jeans that aren't comfortable. I usually won't go with a modern/slim cut even if it says relaxed. These are perfect they stretch in the right places and have plenty of room where you need it.

Family fun Tent
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

My Customer Elizabeth and her husband took this little guy out for his first camping trip. It rained on them the whole time but with The Halo's heavy duty rain fly and plenty of head room they stayed dry without getting stir-crazy. Great tent that can handle the elements. True four person. If you have questions please reach out to me 801-204-4585 or lhaslem@backcountry.com.

When I purchased these I didn't have high expectations. The last pair of brooks I owned they the support fell out pretty quickly. I tend to be really hard on shoes being a big dude that puts on the miles. I'm really impressed with the cushioning and the heel to toe roll. Makes for a comfortable ride. These have been my go-to for the gym.

I picked up a pair of a month ago. I've been able to put some miles on these. I'm an Altra and Hoka user but recently been able to use brooks ghost 9 and Adidas Supernova 9.
some things I like:
Boost- reduces fatigue over the long runs.
Continental sole- grippy durable, doesn't add a lot of weight.

Some things I don't like:
Tung- too padded extra weight
extra plastic everywhere- overbuilt for a road runner (cut the weight)

This shoe is overbuilt for a road runner and under built for a trail runner. It's like it can't find it's true identity. Overall I like the boost but it's really not enough to make up for the extra weight. However, if you need a lot of support you would like these shoes.

Amazing harness

This Harness defies all expectation. You think a harness as light and thin would cut into you. But it doesn't at all it's super comfortable. The webbing is threaded throughout the waist and leg belts. It gives an even weight distribution eliminating cutting. super light and comfortable the sizing is pretty regular and true to size. I would recommend this belt to anyone that wants a packable, light and comfortable belt. This would be fine for a new climber or a seasoned veteran.

Easy to use.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was really impressed using this for the first time. first, of all Threading the rope is really hard to mess up with the detailed notes with animations that you can see on the product picture above. the release when lowering the climber is a little tricky to control at first but once you get the hang of it, it gets pretty smooth. Auto-stopping system Makes this thing fool proof and great for beginners that might panic when a climber falls. It's good to know that you don't have to completely rely on the grip or responsiveness of your buddy. Here is a picture of us doing a little climbing near Draper Ut.

Warm and technical.

For the money, these are a great buy. If you are as hard on gloves as I am you need something that holds up. The Nose whip, Goggle cleaner, and the tech touch. Makes this glove a go to. I've owned mine for years and they are still my go-to glove for a day on the mountain. These aren't going to be your blizzard day glove but they work for almost any weather. Team these up with a pair of liners and you will be good to go. If your method grabbing of a huge kicker or slashing pow.

I see you!

I dig my Shaun white A-frame goggles. All around good google for day or night riding. Plenty of reflection UV protection for your eye's. I've had these for years and they have been through a lot of riding/wrecks included. Really durable and they look good doing it. When Oakley finds a way to make a good goggle they stick with it. My only complaint is I have a small nose bridge I do have issues with air coming through the nose area. This can cause a little fogging if I'm hiking up some backcountry. I've never met anyone with my same issue.

These pants of a loose baggy fit. Plenty of pockets and storage. They are tough enough to handle the mountain grind. I spent a lot of time in some pretty bad weather this season. The waterproofing never failed, I'll need to pick up some tech wash next season. I used the sizing chart and it worked out perfectly. I got them a little big but that wasn't an issue with the adjustable waist straps.

My go to board
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the 2011 good wood award winner. The good wood is an award given by transworld snowboarding for all mountain boards. No matter what terrain/conditions I know this board will perform consistently on the mountain. This is a flat top board which means it's going to give you even edging. The Sintered base bottom is super durable but does need waxing every so often. Also, K2 was able to make a very poppy board so you can take this into the park no problem.
