Sara Gemmell's Bio

After growing up and going to school in Michigan, my itch for the outdoors found me in Utah not long after I graduated from Northern Michigan University with my Bachelor's Degree in Marketing. I grew up with a love for skiing and I couldn't stay away from the mountains, so after a ski season of instructing in Park City, I decided to try to make Utah home. I worked a number of jobs, in a variety of industries, all with the goal of pursuing a career in the Outdoor Industry. Now, after a year of working for The North Face at the retail level, I am continuing to grow a career in the industry with the Backcountry.com team.

This jacket has been my go-to spring jacket. I love the fit, with the tapered length in the back and the waist-cinch. Also, the stretchy fabric on the sleeve-cuffs instead of Velcro is great. This jacket hold up great when it is slightly raining, but I wouldn't recommend wearing it for extended time while it's down-pouring, I got a little damp.

I love this sports bra! I purchased it because I have two of The North Face Stow-n-Go Sports Bras and love the support, but wanted something with smaller straps. I love how the Motivation Strappy Sports Bra fits! I have hiked, biked, ran, skied, and done yoga in this bra and feel very supported. I bought the black, but may have to buy another color because I like it so much.

I recently purchased this shirt and have been wearing it for everything... yoga, hiking, running, biking... I love it! The fit is great and the material is so soft! It isn't quite as moisture-wicking as I had hoped, but I really like it!

I purchased this pack because I wanted something for mountain biking that was small, still has a waist and chest strap, and is H2O compatible...this pack had it all! I love that it has a separate compartment for my Camelbak bladder, the main compartment has all sorts of zipper compartments, and there is a small outside zipper compartment, as well. I have an Osprey pack for backpacking, and another one for backcountry skiing, so I knew I would be impressed by the Tempest for biking!

I finally replaced my Florida's after 7 years of wearing them VERY often. I love Birkenstocks, they are so comfortable and look great with almost any outfit. They do run a little big, I purchased these in a size 39 and had to return them for a size 38.

I demoed this bike in Moab this spring and loved it so much that I bought it as soon as I got home. I wanted a women's specific frame on a full-suspension bike that handles well for cross country riding, uphill climbs, and descents. This bike does it all! I am still getting familiar with the bike, but every ride I continued to be more impressed by the Furtado's performance!

I purchased this shirt for mountain biking and I love it! It has a more feminine fit than traditional mountain bike jerseys and is more of a t-shirt material. I was worried that it wouldn't wick moisture as well as bike jerseys, but so far I am impressed! It is a little bigger than I thought, but I like the more relaxed fit.

I purchased this for camping with our dog after our previous Nite Ize carabiner style night light broke off her collar. This one is easy to cut and fit to the perfect size to fit around her neck and it is bright enough to see her all around the camp site. The flashing light setting is a little intense, but the normal light setting works great!

I purchased these to clean my Camelbak reservoir and they work great! The directions were very straight forward and the solution washed out very easy after the cleaning was complete. I wish the bag included more tabs, but I will definitely purchase again when I run out!

This shirt is great to throw on with jeans and sandals! The material is awesome and I love how the fit is a little longer. It doesn't have quite as loose and casual of a fit as it looks on model, but I like how it fits!

I love how comfortable this shirt is! I thought that it would be a little more casual, loose fitting, but the small fits slimmer than it looked on model. I wish I would have sized up, but it is so comfy that I didn't want to return it!

I love how this sweater fits! It is so cute and easy to wear casually or to dress up a bit, but it is so itchy! I have tried wearing it with a shirt underneath and it helps, but it looks a little strange. Also, I would recommend being very careful when washing this sweater because it fits differently after I washed it, it seems a little stretched out along the bottom.

I purchased a pair of these and the Kara Jean because I have heard such wonderful reviews on Prana Denim, and I like how they fit but they are a little long. They fit well in my hips and thighs and they don't look bad rolled up, but I wish they had a short length.

I purchased a pair of these and the Kara Jean because I have heard such wonderful things about Prana Denim, but I was not impressed. The length on the Kara Jean is good (I purchased a Short) but they do not fit well in my hips or thighs. I ordered the same size in the Kayla and they fit much more true to size. I washed them and tried wearing them a few times thinking that they would feel a little more worn-in, but I ended up giving them to a friend because I still wasn't loving how they fit.
