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 seven years ago for school at the University of Utah and after graduating summer of 2011 I started working at Backcountry.com. Snowboarding and whitewater are definitely my passions but I also enjoy biking, hiking, backpacking, and basically anything else active in the mountains.

I got the Black/Tan pack for my brother as a birthday present. The bag is a perfect size for work and is simple and classic enough to work in most situations. The tan portions do not look cheap and it seems durably made. Great classic backpack at a great price for the quality level.

Like other reviewers have said, this is definitely not a sports bra. I wear mine around the house or as a bralette under tank tops. I wouldn't do any physical activity besides gardening, walking, or super mellow yoga in it but it is incredibly comfortable. Perfect if going bra-less isn't your thing but you don't want to wear a bra.

I got this for my Mizu bottle that came with the stainless lid. It fits on well and doesn't leak at all. If you don't drink all the coffee out of the drinking spout area, it can leak over to the other side of the channel where the flip top goes and make it look like it is leaking. It is just a few drops though and is easily fixed by making sure you don't have coffee left on the lid before sealing it closed.

I got this for my boyfriend as a Christmas present and he loves it. I got him the Cognac color and the band has aged very well. It looks like a more expensive broken in leather now. It has a relatively large face but it is slim so it doesn't look like you are wearing a chunky watch. Awesome gift for sure.

I really like crew sweatshirts and end up buying guys' ones for myself. This one is soft and long enough through the torso that I don't look like a flying squirrel. It has a more long and lean cut as opposed to a short and wide one. I got a size S and it fits really well.

These are awesome. They are a bit shorter through the calf than some other ski/snowboard socks. I actually prefer this as some of the Smartwool socks I own go almost all the way up to my knees. These hit a couple inches above the top of my boots so they fit perfect.

I am a big flannel fan and Woolrich did a good job on this one. It is a more regular fit (longer, a little baggier) but it is still feminine. Most flannels with a regular fit tend to look boxy but this one pulls off a flattering look with a comfortable fit. The fabric is super soft and you can tell it is well made.

I love the Tentree button-ups. I always have issues with button-up shirts where they pull/pucker through the bust or have a shorter fit through the torso. This one fits perfectly. It is a more regular fit with a slightly longer length. I am usually between a medium and a large and the medium fits perfectly. The fabric is super soft and it is very flattering. If you tend to be between sizes you can go with your smaller size and it will fit accurately.

I love this shirt. I am a huge fan of button-ups but they can tend to pucker through the bust or have a shorter fit. This one fits perfectly. It is a more regular fit with a slightly longer length. I am usually between a medium and a large and the medium fits perfectly. The fabric is super soft and it is very flattering. Perfect for a more business casual look.

I really wanted to like this shirt but it wasn't right for me. I am between a medium and a large. For this shirt, I went with a large for some more room through the bust. The large had enough room through the bust, was quite baggy in the waist, and then was a little too short. Instead of being figure flattering, it fit boxier and shortened the look of my torso. If you have a less curvy figure, this shirt should fit well.

I purchased the Free People Roller Crop Denim Pants and when I saw these I wanted to get the cord version since I like the denim ones so much. These fit slightly larger but after washing, they do slim down a bit. I purchased the same size as the denim version and they fit well on the first wear after washing. Most cords tend to be baggier or have a a more mom jean fit but these are a bit more modern.

These are super soft and significantly larger than most towels, almost like a blanket. The prints come through clearly and they are super fluffy. Definitely worth spending a little extra money if it is something you will use regularly. I am debating buying a few more and using them for the house.

I have a lot of different pairs of Vans and got these for riding my bike since they come up a bit higher. The fit is the same as other Vans and I like the all-black look. Great classic shoe that is what exactly what you expect.

I have a ton of Stance socks and these are the best. They used to have an issue where if you actually wore the detail printed ones they would stretch slightly giving the image a faded look. They seem to have remedied the issue, because these still show the image clearly. The material is thinner than most Stance socks and the fit is more active than casual. Love em.

I have 3 pairs of Stance No-Show Socks and I love them. The rubberized heel is very effective for keeping the socks actually on your feet. I have had one pair for the last 4 months and they have held up well and the rubberized heel is still effective. I love them so much I bought 2 more pairs. If you are looking for something to fit under a low bootie, these are perfect.

I wrote my first review on these after buying my first pair. Three months later and I like them so much I bought 2 more pairs. The rubberized heel has stayed effective after 3 months of heavy wear and these are still my favorite socks. I have a pair of booties with cutouts and wearing socks under is really not attractive. These really are the most low profile socks I have found.

This thing is awesome. When I received it, I was skeptical because it seemed so much larger than expected. It actually fits close to the body and does not stick out like regular hip packs. It is definitely the most stylish one I have seen. The leather is super soft and the waist strap is more like a belt than typical clip closures. As far as hip packs go, I would give it a 10/10.
