Lauren Weibert's Bio

Hi, I'm deaf. Don't be afraid of me.

I snowboard, mountain bike, hike, travel... basically, I like fun!!

My goal is to try to grow the action sports community in the Deaf community. The biggest thing is accessibility- I can't even begin to tell you how bummed I am that I can't go to various retreats because of no sign language/accessibility, or when gear videos have no closed captions. I would love to try to bring awareness to that and hopefully see more Deaf people participating in various retreats and sports.

Speaking of various sports, I have a GREAT adventure buddy. She is an Australian Cattle Dog named Gypsy; I adopted her from the local shelter. She was born in the mean streets of Texas and is faster than a speeding bullet! She does everything with me and loves it all!

They actually FIT my curves!

I love love love these bibs!

They actually fit over my child-bearing hips without being restrictive. I am 5'2, 115 lbs, I'm slim up top with muscular thighs and booty and I got the small. Perfect fit! They are a little long, but there's ripstops at the heels so they don't rip too much if they do get scuffed up. Thoughtful details!

POCKETS GALORE! And I can actually put stuff in them! I have Holden pants as well and I can never fit anything in my pockets. These Airblaster bibs have great functional pockets that will hold anything. I can even fit my phone AND keys in my front side leg pocket. Oh. Em. Gee.

The 30k waterproofing is INSANE! I tested them out by doing some Tuffy shovel banked slalom sledding during a wet Spring snow storm and I was still dry after hours out in the weather.

I love the subtle leg vents... you don't even see them when they're zipped up.

I got the Critterflage as that was the only color available in a small. I did think that these bibs would be gray.... they're green. I had a green jacket already. Damn it. Hahaha. I looked like the Green Bastard for a little bit :) I needed a higher waterproof rating jacket anyways so I grabbed myself the Airblaster Posh Parka in small (again.... fit is amazing. I can actually bend over and strap in my bindings. I had a Holden Shelter jacket and it was tight around my shoulders/armpits.) I even have room for more layers with both the Airblaster bibs and jacket!

When I first received the bibs, one of the buckles was bent.... sigh. It wouldn't "click" on the button and stay on. No matter, pliers fixed that, but really, for bibs that are $300 MSRP, something as major as that shouldn't be defective right away. Other than that, everything else looked great and I hope these will last for a long time to come!

Looks great, functions okay

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I won this jacket in Olive from an Instagram contest Holden held, as well as Vice Pants. When I first received the outerwear, they felt very stiff out of the package, however they broke in nicely.

The jacket is not warm AT ALL. I used to ride locally for Roxy and got samples from them and those samples were warmer than this jacket... I wore the same base layers I usually wear (with no issues with the Roxy samples) when I went to try out my new Holden outerwear and I damn near froze to death! It wasn't that cold, 12 degrees, but my god. I think for $300, this jacket should be warmer. I think this stuff is more like really expensive streetwear. I have to wear *real* layers with this jacket, like one of those down jackets (for the below 0 days) or a fleece top. It sucks to wear thick layers under this jacket, so I just wear this when it's 20 degrees or warmer. The jacket has been perfect for this wet Spring weather we've been having lately.

The waterproofing is awesome and really badass. I love all the pockets on the jacket and the little details like the bright orange zipper pulls & the strap on the back of the hood to tighten it. I like the brim the hood has too! You can tuck it in if you don't need to use it.

I am 5'2, 115 lbs and got the small. Fits great, but it feels a little tight in the shoulders and armpits when I bend over to strap in. Stretchy though. The quality seems to be great so far... holding up nicely.

Honestly, would I buy a Holden jacket? Probably not...

I recently received these goggles to try out and so far... I am loving them!!!! I have crazy peripheral vision and these goggles do not feel like they restrict my line of sight. They fit my small face perfect, I have no wind coming in.

I really like the lens that come with the goggles too; they're great on sunny days and also those days where the light is changing constantly, I can still see fine when clouds roll in. I have not needed to use the low-light yellow lens that came with these goggles yet, but they look like they will work great for night riding.

The colors look great too, it's not too bright. I love the strap detail! My goggles came with charms hanging off the strap... I'm not sure if that's standard with these goggles or if my friend who gave me put them on, but it's a nice touch! Thanks Taryn <3

I really dig em and recommend them! Get yourself a pair of these!

I have both the Birds of Feather 140cm and the Space Metal Fantasy 141cm and both are great boards in their own right. I am 5'2 and 115lbs by the way.

I like to ride around the mountain as well as take park laps. The Space Metal Fantasy has been GREAT for that... I love the flat technology, the snowboard feels broken in and really mellow & fun to ride on. It's super playful and still stable when I go fast. The Space Metal feels like a looser ride compared to the Birds of Feather, which has a better edge hold.

I think the Space Metal is really fun to ride in powder and I've been using that a lot more lately than the Birds of Feather in powder. Floats well for a small board!

I love this board and I recommend it especially if you like park laps as well as riding all over the mountain!

Size Purchased: Medium

I'm 5'2, 115 lbs, got the size medium. The small did fit, but the sleeves were too tight for snowboarding. Medium fits perfect. Perfect length, and the Heather Gray color is really nice. It's more of a gray-brown; I love the color.

I've used this a few times and so far, it seems to be holding up. I hope this will last a while.

I remember when hoodies used to be $40 and I thought THAT was expensive.... but for $70, this hoodie really didn't deliver.

For a hoodie made for snowboarding, the pockets for some strange reason do NOT have zippers. The neck cowl is super awkward and the too-long strings are all over the place. Snow gets in the pockets and I definitely cannot stash my truck keys in them. Bummer... This hoodie is best worn on warm slushy days when spraying snow won't get in your pockets and soak your stomach.

Off the slopes, it's really cute. I do feel like the cowl and hood are bulky compared to the rest of the hoodie, but that's not a huge drawback. It covers yo bum, you definitely can wear this with leggings.... perfect if you want to snowboard then go straight to class after or something like that :)

I got these for trail running, but after trying them for a quick 3 mile run, I think I will use these for yoga instead. They didn't feel like they would stay up while running, but once I started sweating, these leggings really stuck to my skin and I didn't have to worry about that.

I didn't like how the material felt when I was sweating, I honestly prefer my UnderArmour Heat Gear leggings over these Arra Color Block leggings for running. I do LOVE the colors and the little coral blocks at the bottoms... super cute!
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Alright here's an update now that I've used these things more. I have found these to be better for when the weather started cooling down for trail running and I don't sweat as much. I feel like the fit is kinda weird in the upper area, the lower stomach area. It's baggy and loose and feels weird when I do yoga. Maybe I should have gotten the XS? Other than that, I think these pants are really comfortable!

Wow. Just, wow.

I rode GNU/Roxy boards for years, but after getting frustrated that my local reps kept giving me demo boards with crappy bases that would stick everywhere, I dropped them and bought myself this Capita Birds of a Feather board. Holy crap, going from riding a mostly rocker board to this board... that was quite the change.

I got used to this board really fast after a couple days. The thing I LOVE about this board is that it just LOCKS on rails sooooo well. So much better than my Mervin boards. I can also carve way better and go faster. My boyfriend even said I look less sketchy on this board, haha.

It's a really fun, playful board that I take everywhere. I also feel like I can ollie onto rails much better with this thing.

I am 5'2, 115 lbs and got the 140. I usually ride 142-144 so this was just a little smaller than I am used to, but I love it. It's fantastic. OH, HAVE I MENTIONED HOW CRAZY LIGHT IT IS?? My Mervin boards are friggin' TANKS compared to this. This board still looks new after riding it all season, although it's a bit softer now but still has POP :)

It looks like I just might be a Defender of Awesome from now on... love Capita!!!!

My first hiking boots
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: 7

I got these in advance for my first backpacking trip in the Grand Gulch Primitive Area in Utah. They were comfortable right out of the box, the sizing was true to size. I already had a pair of Keen shoes in 6.5 (I'm usually a 7 in everything and occasionally 6.5). While those 6.5 shoes fit, they felt a little tight with wool socks, so I based my sizing off that and got the Durand Mid WP boots in a 7. THEY FIT PERRRRRRFEEEEEECCCTTTT!!!!!!!!!!

I wore them dog-walking for a couple weeks to break them in. We walked over slush, mud, jumped in puddles (you're never too old to do that), and they stayed dry and warm. Sweet.

I went to Utah for my 28 mile backpacking trip and I was the only one in my group who didn't have to tape off my entire feet. I only had a couple hot spots on the outside of my big toes, that was it. I wrapped my big toes with athletic tape and I was just fine the rest of the trip. These boots are so crazy comfortable. I also loved how grippy they were- we had to walk in and out of washes quite a bit and I was the one who slipped the least on the sandy hills. These boots also gripped really well on the slickrock. They allowed me to easily hike up to various Ancestral Puebloan ruins and see amazing things that probably not many people get to see in their lifetimes. I was at Jailhouse Ruins and wanted to climb up to the wall above it... I had to shimmy through a small hole and crawl along the edge of a canyon wall and these boots helped me grip so I don't slide off :) It was worth it!

They held up really well and I feel confident they will last a while. I'm very happy with these boots and would recommend them!

I got mine in the Gargoyle/Capri Breeze color and I love the colors! The backcountry.com product photo shows the colors accurately.

I have a small face and these goggles fit perfect! I love that these goggles don't have a clip on the back of the strap.

I got the Desiree Padfoot color with the blackout lens as well as red sensor lens for the low light days. The lens were a bitch to change out the first time, but the more you do it, the better you become. I used to be scared I'd snap a prong off the lens or something and that was frustrating. It's all good now though.

Blackout lens are awesome on sunny days and the red sensor lens are awesome on super-flat light days... but if it's kinda sunny, kinda cloudy... the red sensor lens are bright as hell and burn my retinas. I can see just fine with blackout lens on those kinda sunny, kinda cloudy days. Choose wisely!

The fit is great, I have no wind getting in or fogging issues and they go with my small Smith Maze helmet perfectly.

I'm very happy with these goggles and would recommend them. They look great too!

I want to love this jacket.... I've always liked L1TA products and always wanted to get some. I finally ordered this jacket after wearing Roxy outerwear for years and I had high expectations for this jacket.

I was disappointed in the material.... it just looks and feels so cheap compared to my Roxy jackets. I was also disappointed in the fit.... I had to double check that this was a womens jacket and not a mens jacket. There's no shape to this jacket. I feel like the Michelin Man in this thing. I got the military/duck camo color and I do like the colors, but that's about it.

It;s really tough to get the zipper zipped up. Front pockets are awkward (zips at the top... sides would be ideal), however I do love the discreet inner breast pocket. What's with the boob pockets on the outside, though? So I can stick my hands inside and grab my boobs? I don't like the cuffs at the wrists.... sigh. They're awkward. I'm bummed, I paid around $150 for this and I'm not even happy with it. I will be going back to Roxy for outerwear.

But hey... it is warm!

I got the Blue/Brown Tortoise ones and OH MY GASH, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!!!!!!! At first, I wasn't sure about the style, but after wearing them and getting used to how they look, I think they are the best! I want more colors! I found these on Steep and Cheap and they were around $30.... come on, that's a screaming deal for awesome, stylish sunglasses!

They fit my small face perfect and the lens are amazing. I love the.... what do you call it. The nose bridge? It's a great little touch to these fabulous sunglasses.

My only complaint is that one of the arms is screwed REALLY tight. SO tight, I'm afraid to fold that arm down and back up, it feels like it's gonna snap off. I can't get the arm to open up all the way so it makes the sunglasses sit crooked. I did loosen it a little with a pocketknife which helped them to sit straighter, but I still gotta be careful.

UPDATE- I happened to be in a sunglasses store in town and the super nice guy working there loosened up that tight arm for me :) No more fear of it snapping now... yay! And it's much easier for me to stash them away in my purse or pocket without having to struggle to fold that arm back down!

Personally, when I buy something from Smith, I expect quality products. I don't want to have to fix something right out of the box. Just something to be aware of. :)

I got these off Steep and Cheap and hoped like hell they would fit my little head. They're a little bigger than I would like, but they do fit my head and the polarized lens are really nice!! I CAN SEE EVERYTHING!

My only complaint is that when I pulled these sunglasses out of the box, I noticed stains on the sunglasses bag... it looks like coffee or chocolate?? MAYBE POOP?!?!?! Nah, it looks like maybe the person packaging these sunglasses drank some coffee at the same time... kinda weird, but okay. I can understand needing fuel while working, but dude/dudette, maybe be more careful next time. Maybe that's why they were cheap?

This thing is THE COCAINE OF SNOWBOARDING! I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY GNU SMART PICKLE!!!!

I am 5'2 and 115lbs and ride the 144. I find that to be the perfect size for park and also all over the mountain. I love the asymmetrical design of this board... I feel like I can carve really well on my heels compared to my non-asymmetric boards. It also just feels so natural. I freaking love laying down carves on this board!

This thing is pretty poppy and it's also got some flex to it. I never have a bad day on this board, it's SO MUCH DAMN FUN. I love to pop off the rollers and butter around. I've ridden this in some powder already and it was great.

If you want a fun board you can ride everywhere, this won't disappoint!

Not a question but an update.

I can't seem to update my review but.... I just wanted to say now it's winter, this jacket has become my favorite go-to jacket! This thing is seriously warm and I love the hood. I'm really happy with this jacket and have nothing negative to say. This is definitely a quality product that will keep me warm for a long time! I'm pretty stoked on this. I also wanted to mention that the sizing chart on backcountry.com is inaccurate- please go here for the proper measurements so you don't order the wrong size! :)
