Sam Kapacinskas's Bio

Born in Chicago and raised in Central Florida I had the opportunity to play organized team sports year round. I played baseball collegiately before moving out to UT for a job as a guide. Upon moving out West, my passions of baseball and football were quickly replaced by backpacking, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, canyoneering, snowboarding, skiing and just general adventuring in the mountains. With over 1,000 days in the field working as a commercial guide I am happy to help you get outfitted for your next adventure.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Got these skins as a gift for my girlfriend. Here's what she had to say:
I bought the 100mm short for my 159cm skis
and the fit is perfect. I’ve used these skins twice and am very happy with my purchase. The skin cutter that is included is so easy to use. They have performed well in different snow conditions and allow me to climb well as a beginner in the backcountry.

These are my go to bootie for yurt trips. After a day out touring there is nothing better than coming back to a warm yurt and slipping these on to let your feet feel good. The exterior of these are more than durable enough to hold up walking in snow around camp/yurt but I wouldn't recommend taking them on an expedition in the snow.

The merino wool on this thing wicks sweat like no other layer I've had. I love the 1/4 zip option on this thing too. Love letting the chest hair show when it's blue bird out and I'm hiking up hill but having the option to zip up if I'm getting a little to much sun. All in all, a great next to skin layer for it's wicking properties and feel on skin. Doesn't hold any stink either.

I love this flask when I'm in the outdoors. Holds 18 ounces and doesn't leak. The Stanley Flask I had leaked ever so slightly. While the brain of my pack did smell of delicious bourbon I was bummed on the loss of whiskey. Would highly recommend this outdoor specific flask.

I got these boots to start the season and couldn't be more please with them. It's a very stiff boot that is ultra responsive. The BOA ankle lock on these things are amazing. I had the Burton Tourist for two season and could never get my heel/ankle to lock in place fully which would cause blistering. These don't have that same problem with the ankle lock. The crampon communicability with these are also better than the Burton Tourist. While they both have a heel welt for crampons, the heel of the Tourist was to wide to easily put a crampon on it. You could make it work, but it was the equivalent of shoving 2lbs of sausage in a 1lbs casing. The heel on these are narrow enough where I don't have the same problem with my Petzl Irvis Hybrid Crampons.
