Samuel Nichols's Bio

I love being outdoors, I enjoy skiing, climbing , hiking, and taking it easy in a hammock.

Skiing and rock climbing are my main passions in life, I love the snow more than anything else, and skiing is the best way to explore the amazing wonderland of Utah winters.

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

This sleeping bag is composed of a silky exterior fabric that is divine to sleep in, and stuffed full of a high quality down. I personally have used the men's version and got this for a lady friend of mine. She loved it, I loved it, you'll love it!

The temperature range is pretty accurate for this bag if you don't run cold, you may want to drop down to the zero degree if you struggle staying warm. I was a huge fan of the shape of this sleeping bag, it was very comfy and I didn't feel restricted in any way even with it being a mummy bag.

Super rad bag, and highly recommend it to those looking at a high quality sleeping bag!

Fit: True to size
Height: 1"

Just picked up a pair of these snazzy shoes and out of the gate I was really impressed with how lightweight they were, you hardly feel them on your feet.
The main use of these shoes for me is gym training. I've really enjoyed the solid plastic platform under the entire foot, it provides a great grounded feel when moving heavier weights, while still remaining comfortable.
The sizing is pretty spot on, I would say true to size, with a normal width. I have a narrow foot so the forefoot feels a little wide to me but would be a great fit for folks with normal width feet.
I'd definitely recommend this shoe to anyone. Honestly, even if you're using these for a stylish knock around sneaker they're awesome and comfortable. I've worn them practically everyday since getting them!

If you're like me you only have one boot, and it's seen the handy work of a bootfitter for many hours to ensure a comfy and perfect fit throughout. This one boot is the thing that connects me to the binding, driving the ski on every day on the hill. This binding facilitates my dream of one boot to rule them all. A tech setup for the uphill and an alpine setup for the downhill means that there is no excuse not to have a best day, everyday.
The functionality of this binding is a little tricky initially so I recommend fooling around with it before you get out on the hill. But once you have it down it's pretty straight forward. My only gripe with these bindings is the overall weight compared to tech bindings in the market, 3lbs 13oz is quite heavy when comparing it to a Dynafit rotation 12 that comes in at 1lb 6oz.
Overall a really cool design and is definitely the way the industry is going by way of a 50/50 ski binding. But the weight is holding me back from enjoying these bindings more.

This is a great ski to learn on, Elan 's "u-flex" design ensures an easy turn initiation for your little ripper increasing their confidence, and edge familiarity. I think that this is the perfect ski for little ones to learn on and progress. The second best thing about this is that it comes with a binding!

This ski is nothing but versatile. The construction is a poplar beech core with carbon reinforcements. This allows the ski to be agile at slow speeds when your legs may have seen better days, but remain very stable keeping you confident at high speeds thanks to all the carbon reinforcements. A lightened tip and tail lightens the swing weight of this ski increasing is maneuverability especially in the trees. I'd definitely recommend this ski to any resort shredder looking for something to handle those variable condition days.

I just got these for my girlfriend so we can hang out on the slopes with happy feet. She is beyond stoked on how comfortable and warm these boots are. Their performance is not to be forgotten either. A medium flex ensures all mountain performance and a perfect boot for any day on the hill. I'd definitely recommend this boot to any lady looking to have a great day on the slopes!

Ask anyone who owns a pair of Blundstone boots and they will tell you how amazing they are! There's a very good reason for that. A high quality leather upper and a very comfy and supportive midsole makes for a comfy boot that goes well with almost any outfit and can stand up to some of the harsher weather climates. When you're looking for something simple but stylish go for the Blundstones, they will surely not disappoint on any front. I'd definitely recommend these boots to anyone looking at a lightweight, waterproof, casual boot.

I just got this for my nephew for Christmas. His parents were beyond stoked when they new that he'd be warm this winter and next. We got it a bit big so that there's more bang for the buck and will last at least 2 winters. Overall this is super legit, the down is very warm, but paired with the high pile fleece lining it is truly a child's best friend in the winter.

There are so many great things about this sleeping bag, it's hard to know where to start. First, the down is very warm and treated to be hydrophobic so you stay warm all night long. Second, the sleeping pad stays put, it does not move because there are two sleeves the pad slips into to keep it in place. Third, there are small hooks on the sides of the bag that can sinch the bag to a narrower profile, keeping that super powerful down closer to you. Overall this bag is really nice and stuffs to a small size for easy backpacking capability. I'd definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking at a solid sleeping bag to last them years.

I just got this for my girlfriend. It's the perfect pack for backpack camping. There's plenty of storage throughout, and has a very comfortable suspension system. The best part of this pack is that it can be loaded from the top, or the front so you don't have to rummage through your entire pack for the one thing at the bottom. Another cool feature is the detachable day pack on top. It folds out of a semi hidden compartment but just takes a little investigation to get it all set up. I'd definitely recommend this pack to any lady looking for a high quality backpack that will do it all.

I just got this for my girlfriend for Christmas. She really loves how cozy it feels, and the fit is great. It's not a very thick fleece so you'll probably need a jacket if it's cold out, but it's a very cute sweater to complete the whole ensemble.

I just got these for my mom who was in need of a bib for resort skiing. Full size zips and a drop hem keeps you cool and avoiding those awkward moments when nature calls. A burly 3 layer gore-tex construction keeps you dry all day long, and is quite abrasion resistant. I'd recommend these bibs to anyone who is looking for a resort or backcountry bib to last them a very long time.
