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.

This is a great shirt. The fabric feels nicer and a bit more like a sweater knit than a typical t-shirt. It is still light and airy though. I sized down and purchased a size S and I am typically a M. It looks great with jeans as a simple tee that looks a bit more put together than a typical t-shirt.

I purchased this for my fiance as he is always burning his neck fishing. The hood is awesome and it does a much better job at protecting your neck than a crewneck (even with the hood down). It is nice and cool and works great. The only thing that is a bit annoying is the button. The placement on the button is too high to turn it into a turtle neck and when it is unbuttoned it just looks a little funky.

I purchased these to wear in my trail running shoes that I use for hiking and golf. With the stock insoles, I would get pain through my forefoot after walking 18 holes (probably from walking on pavement more than I am used to). After swapping out the stock insoles with these Superfeet ones, I haven't had any foot pain issues.

I purchased these for my father-in-law as a father's day gift. He worked on his feet his whole life and really enjoys tending to the lawn/garden in retirement. These are supportive and comfortable and he is able to be on his feet all day again without pain.

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.

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.
