Laura Mascari's Bio

Hailing from the East Coast, I moved on a whim a few years ago from Delaware to Salt Lake City, UT in pursuit of more outdoor adventures...more specifically, to chase fish on the fly.


A bit of a trout bum, you'll most likey find me outside, near a body of water. Specializing in fly fishing, hiking, backpacking, and yoga, I'm here to make sure you get the right gear and apparel for whatever lies next.

Headband, gift wrapping, trail marker, dog bandanna, neck tie, emergency wrap ....so many uses! Love the burnt orange color. I wear it around my neck and as a headband to keep my hair out of my face. It can also be tied to the strap of a casual bag to give it some flair. I've used this to wrap small gifts - that is always a big hit....who doesn't like two gifts in one, or sustainable wrapping paper?!

Seriously, how cute is this hat?! Not only is is adorable, it's extremely warm and functional. I gave this as a gift to a friend who is expecting a winter baby and she could hardly get over the cuteness factor. The XXS size fits a baby with a head circumference of 15.5 -17.5 inches. It has a North face embroidered logo on the front, but it is rather subtle. The crockery beige is perfect for a baby girl or boy and it goes with everything!

I have purchased this bag twice and really just could not find a good use for it. I LOVE the style and the look, but the lack of a water bottle pocket on the side and the lack of internal storage just won't work for me. There is not much support to the bag, and the waist strap is silly and flimsy. Because there is only one front zippered pocket a very lightly padded laptop sleeve, your things are impossible to find as they jostle around and settle at the bottom of your pack. If you don't need a ton of organization, this could be a great bag!

Subtle logo, wide mouth for easy clean + easy ice add, inexpensive, way better than a single-use plastic bottle....goes everywhere with me! I love the light transparent blue shade of the seafoam, and the glow-in-the-dark green bottle is perfect for camping so I can find it in the tent in the middle of the night. I really like the measurements on the side - it makes it easy for me to track my hydration and comes in handy rehydrating backpacking meals on the trail.

I love the material on this!!!!! It is so amazingly soft....organic cotton, recycled poly and tencel = a dream. This shirt has a very flattering cut and a cute little pocket on the chest. The scoop neck is not too low, and the drop tail hem gives you a little extra coverage in the front and back. Chic with leggings or jeans, I wear this so much I have to get another color. The material is surprisingly heavy - not in a bad way that does not breathe or is hot, but it has some weight to it. It's definitely a loose fitting tee, so size down if you want it tighter or have a very petite frame. The black color has a mottled effect with flecks of gray, so it is not a solid color black FYI!

I don't run often, but when I do, I want to be sure I have really comfy socks! These are great ultra lightweight running socks that are 100% merino to help wick moisture and breatheeeeee! My coworker and friend runs Ultra marathons, and these are what he recommended. After only a few miles, I can see why! Comfy and durable + fits true to size. I need more!

I LOVE the look and style of this pack. It's great for around town and taking to work, but this is not the best if you need a lot of pockets/organizational structure. This could hold up to a day hike, but there is no sternum strap or waist strap to help support your load. I really wish it had an external water bottle pocket!

Man, is this thing burly!!! This is just what I was looking for - a quick and easy way to tote and store gear. Made from the same waterproof, super durable, and easy-to-clean material as the Panga duffel. I use this for car camping and river trips.

This is almost too rich! A great sweet treat after a long day on the trail. It says two serves, but it's enough for four! I wasn't sure how well this would rehydrate, but you definitely want to give it some time as mentioned below so the berries aren't crunchy!

A nice alternative to a Pendleton blanket! Custom designed, durable and soft, machine washable handwoven blankets made for traveling. Comes with a leather carrying strap.

Blundstones 1/2 sizes refer only to width, not length! An 8.5 is NOT longer than an 8, however it is wider and will be more roomy. Keep in mind that your Blundstones will stretch over time. I range from 8 -8.5 and I opted for an 8. They took a day to break in, but now they are super comfy! When winter time rolls back around, I know that my 8's will not fit with thick socks, so I will likely purchase an 8.5 in the waterproof version!

I've returned these three times and have finally come to terms that they are not the pant for me. This is a major bummer because these pants are absolutely adorable. Plenty of pockets, a stretchy waist, and lightweight airy material would be great for hiking. The elasticized ankle cuffs are really trendy, but they do not suit my short legs. If I was a few inches taller, these would be perfect! I have a 27" waist and the small and mediums were way too big, but the XS was too tight in the waist.

I've needed to upgrade my road running shoes for a while now, and I'm glad I picked Altra! The Escalante 1.5 feels super lightweight with it's knit upper, and is one of the most comfortable running shoes I have ever put on my feet. I find that they run small, so I sized up from an 8 to an 8.5. (I wear an 8 comfortably in the Lone Peak 3). The wide toe box can sometimes feel a bit alien, but give these shoes a chance, and you'll see that this is a great feature.

According to the size chart, I should take a medium, but I sized down per reviews and the small was perfect. I tired on the medium for size and it was too loose.
I returned this hat ...even though I loves the style, look, and craftsmanship, I really want a leather chin strap.
