Nirvana Ortanez Borland's Bio

From ocean to mountains I found myself in Salt Lake City not only because we have world class mountains and snow nearby, but a plethora of outdoor activities just waiting for you to get into. Training for the 2014 Winter Games for snowboarding slopestyle representing the Philippines initially brought me from California to Utah.

Since closing that chapter in competitive snowboarding, I still love being surrounded by the outdoors and easy access to camping, snowboarding, climbing, and the city has led me to stay in this beautiful state!

Such a good Starter
5 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My goal this summer is to get as many of my friends climbing as possible. Intro this starter pack. You honestly can't beat the price for getting all the staples than this. So far I've taken 3 of my friends outdoor climbing for their first times - one of them never having climbed at all. Everyone crushed it and I'm so stoked that they want to go out and do more climbing.

The harness offers great support and BD quality you can trust. The chalk bag is like any other chalk bag and the one I got comes in a burgundy color. I know that with the men's package the color of the chalk bag varies so keep that in mind with the women's package. Although I prefer to have the GriGri as my belay device the ATC provides a good foundation for beginners to learn proper technique.

Your Favorite Outdoor Pants
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

Let's talk about this definitely being a Patagonia staple. I absolutely love these pants. When I had the plan of doing a camping style wedding and a dress was not in my sights at all. I was looking for something comfortable yet stylish and landed on these. The cotton-blend made it easy for breathability in the PNW humidity yet kept me warm while the sun was setting on the beach during our nighttime bonfire.

If you're anything like me then you love having pockets to put things in. You want the ability to fit your whole iPhone in there without having to worry about it falling out. I can safely report that my cell phone comfortably fit in any pocket I chose either the fun, unique back pockets or the normal fronts.

The color description is accurate where these aren't a true white pant, they're more of a "bone" white. I also typically shop in the petite section so taller people, you will have cropped pants. These pants are so versatile and are easily a new staple. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I do!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought this for my husband and was expecting an Off White. I'd say it's leaning towards being more yellow/pale khaki than off white. It's a beautiful shirt and looks super soft but ultimately I had to return it because it wasn't the color it looked like on site.

This bikini is super flattering and adorable. I have an athletic build and the top fits so well and if you're going to go swim or surf this is the perfect top. It'll keep everything in place and the straps are thick and secure. The marine blue really is that vibrant and colorful. This is definitely a bikini top so I wouldn't double it up as a sports bra because the fabric is made for water activities. I usually wear a small but I got a medium and it does feel a little bit on the bigger side -- so true to size.

I love love love this vest. I'm always cold and need a little extra something when I'm out snowboarding. This is especially hard when you don't want to compromise movement with layering - enter this vest. It helps keep my core warm while letting my arms move around freely. 2 thumbs up.

TNF has great layering with their ThermoBall tech. I have this in a vest and I absolutely love the vest because it gave me extra warmth where I needed it. Now I can only imagine that the jacket would give full upper body warmth to the wearer aka my mother in law. I highly recommend if you have a relative or someone you know that needs to keep warm.

As the three star suggestion title explains. These shorts were just okay. I wasn't looking for something that was too bulky so I ended up with these. If you just want a little extra safety around your hips I'd say these will give you a smidge of confidence. I wouldn't recommend for something high impact like mountain biking though.

This is a great wallet for people who want to be minimal and have enough room for all the cards you would want to carry. There is enough room for money and receipts. The fabric felt pretty waterproof and durable. Great buy!

Fit: Runs small

Size Purchased: 13

After reading a ton of reviews on these boots you pretty much can figure out what you are going to get. I went with what the reviews prior had said and sized up. This was a Christmas gift for my fiance and he was thrilled to get them. Worried about the sizing immediately had him try it on and he usually wears a size 12 but I had gotten a 13. They fit well with medium thick socks and he said that they would be roomy enough to have thick snowboarding/skiing socks paired with them. So far they've kept his feet warm standing out in the cold so while they might be manufactured in China they still have the quality construction Banff is known for.

Bought this as a gift for my aunt! It's super cute and seems like a great size to use as an everyday pack. The handles make for a functional bag. I ordered it in the peachy pink and my computer showed a more muted pink/rose but it definitely came more on the peach side. Not a problem though since pink is pink to my aunt!

When I was researching who had the best stuff out there for a durable PAS this one popped up. I have to admit some other climbing partners I've gone out with used daisy chains, and that was the first thing upon researching What Not to Use that I changed. Having the proper equipment when you're 100+ feet up is a plus and this PAS is one to consider.

Did you know that holding a leash with one hand is extremely limiting? Making sure you answer that phone call while Fido decides to poop on the neighbors lawn gets a little difficult right? Banish those problems with this leash! This is great for runners, parent's who have to multi-task with babies or toddlers, or if you just want a free hand to eat that doughnut you bought along the way.

Comfy Harness
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We started our way to the classic SLC slips. It was actually my first lead climb and I felt super secure and comfortable in this harness. I too thought that the non adjustable legs were a little strange, but if you size yourself correctly you really don’t notice it. I especially like Petzl’s streamlined design and the color popped (I had the pink version).
It’s also a great harness for gym climbing!

Great Multisport Duffel/Pack
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked this one up with the hopes that it would be good as a rope bag. Can it be multifunctional? Absolutely. This bag had plenty of room to hold a 70m rope along with a full rack of draws, a harness, shoes, chalk bag, water bottle, and more! It has so many useful pockets where one even had a waterproofed liner that was perfect for my phone to hang out in while we crossed a river. If I had wanted I could have put more in it especially if it were a bike to the craig kind of day.

I bought this as a gift for a family member and they wanted something that was going to be lightweight, durable, all the while getting the job done. Sometimes longer treks can take a lot out of you and this is to help ease the soreness out of the upper body. The features include being speedy when trying to collapse them and the Super Lock System adjustment allows for peace of mind when really putting the lean on them.
