Laurel Nelson's Bio

I grew up all over the place, but moving to the Canadian Rockies for high school changed everything. I moved out to Utah ten years ago for school at the University of Utah and after graduating summer of 2011 I started working at Backcountry.com. Snowboarding and fly fishing are definitely my passions but I also enjoy paddling, biking, hiking, backpacking, and basically anything else active in the mountains.

These headphones work and are a great price for bluetooth wired earbuds. Like other reviewers said the control on the right side seems to be placed too close to the earbud itself. It tends to pull the right earbud out if you are more active. Great option for the price and they are my backup headphones while I am getting my more expensive ones warrantied.

This dress is super soft t-shirt material. It is incredibly comfortable and fits true-to-size. The material hangs well and the dress is flattering. It is a little longer than I expected with the picture. It hits closer to my knee than the model picture and I am 5'9". I wish it was a touch shorter but a great simple t-shirt dress.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I regularly do HIIT workouts and sweat up a storm. I typically have two water bottles and throw one of these in one of the bottles. The strawberry lemonade flavor is perfect (not too sweet, but still flavorful). I find I am able to drink more water during my workouts and I seem to retain the water better (instead of it running right through me).

I had previously purchased the smaller tub of this and liked it so much I bought the larger one. I like that the protein sources are more diverse than your typical plant-based protein powders. I also like that there are additional vegetables and nutrients added. I have the coconut almond flavor and it goes well with most fruits or fruit combos.

This jacket is awesome. My fiance wanted a lightweight insulated jacket for spring and fall and this is perfect. The face fabric and the interior fabric are both incredibly soft and buttery. The fit is more regular than technical so it is perfect for casual wear. He is typically a large in every brand and the large fits perfectly.

I purchased this as a nicer fleece to wear golfing and around town. It is a little warmer than expected but it isn't uncomfortably warm. I found the fit true to size. I typically wear a medium and the medium fit perfectly.

This is a nice sports bra. It is comfortable and I love how the straps are attached at the back. Good support and true to size. I would say this is between a medium and high impact sports bra. I would feel comfortable jogging in it.

I purchased this polo for my fiance and the colors are great. This is nice enough for him to wear to his casual workplace and the fit is great. He is a size large in all brands and the size large fit perfectly.

I bought this for my fiance and it seemed to fit him very oddly. He is a large in almost every brand (XL if it is a more technical fit) and purchased a large. This jacket was absolutely huge through the body but was barely long enough (he is 6'2"). I ended up returning it and not purchasing the medium since it would likely be a bit shorter.

The material for this shirt was not what I was expecting. The rayon gives the tee a much slinkier feel than a traditional cotton or merino. The fit is great and it falls well on your body. I wish it was a little less sheer but with a nude bra it isn't bad. The fit is true-to-size for a relaxed fit.

I got these slides to replace my old flip flops. They are everything you remember from the 90s. They are comfortable and fit true-to-size. I got the Ice Yellow and the color in person is a bit more yellow than the greeny-yellow highlighter color I was expecting.

This sports bra is nice and stretchy and the material is soft. The only thing that was a little odd are the removable pads. It might just be the light color of the bra, but the edges of the pads are very noticeable. All-in-all it is super comfortable and fits true to size. I would call this medium impact. It is not supportive enough for running but would work for cycling/snowboarding/hiking.

I think there must be some differences between batches of these from Prana. The ones I received had plenty of room in the ankle holes. They also fit relatively true-to-size. I wear 27/28 pants depending on the rise and these fit perfectly in a 6. The material is nice and stretchy and the length is perfect.
