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.

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

I purchased this for my Dad for Father's Day and he loves it! He had the same dingy sun shirt for the last 10 years and it was time for an upgrade. He wore it for boating, kayaking, and fly fishing within the first week of having it. He's hooked! I purchased the Feather Grey for him because I thought that the white would get dirty, but he has already hinted at wanting another one.

These mountain bike shorts are the perfect short for lady riders! They have a feminine fit, an adjustable waist, and stretchy and breathable fabric. I also really like the length of these shorts, other mountain biking shorts that I have tried are too long but I like the mid-thigh length of these! I purchased them in the Plum, but might have to buy the Mountain Lake as well!

I love these socks! I wanted a fun pair of socks for mountain biking and these not only have a great pattern but they are very comfortable and breathable. I have worn these a few times now and every time I have gotten a compliment on how awesome these socks are!

I purchased this for my Mom for Mother's Day and she is in love! She is always trying to take her wine or mixed drinks on adventures, so this was the perfect gift for her. She has already used it for kayaking, pontooning, and biking! She is a little bummed that you can't fit ice cubes in the carafe, but besides that it is great! I am probably going to have to get myself one too!

This helmet rocks. The VaporFit adjustments allows for the perfect fit on this helmet and the AirVac ventilation ensures that your noggin never gets too warm! I also love all of the awesome color options that this helmet comes in. And, the integration with Smith biking glasses is a nice addition so that when you take your glasses off, they fit snugly off your face on your helmet, even while still riding!

Held up through a wind/sand storm!

This tent is great! I was a little weary of whether or not we would actually be able to fit 4 girls (that definitely over-packed) in it, but it was the perfect size! We even spent a couple stormy evenings playing cards and drinking wine in the tent. The set-up is super straight forward and was easy for us to get set up within minutes each night. What impressed me the most about this tent was on the 3rd night when we experienced 60 MPH wind gusts and an intense sand storm in Moab. The tent handled the winds like a boss! I do wish we had a few more stakes, though.... there was a bit of sand getting in through the screen windows. Overall, I was very impressed with the ease-of-assembly, durability, and quality of this tent!

I forgot how much I love Smith goggles until putting on a different brand of goggles the other day and having them fog up immediately when I broke a sweat. The Vaporator Lens technology with a Porex Filter never lets the Smith I/O 7's fog! I also love the AirEvac helmet integration technology that gives the perfect helmet-to-goggle integration and the quick interchangeable lens technology that allows you to quickly adjust to variable lighting conditions.

These leggings are great! The fit is great, the material is so comfortable, durable and moisture-wicking, and they don't fall down while running! I have worn these for hiking, running, camping, and yoga and they are perfect for all activities. Also, I have washed them a couple times and they haven't started pilling at all. They are a little long in length, but that is usually the case for me with my short legs. Definitely going to have to purchase these in another color!

I recently purchased this tank and I love it! It is the perfect tank for layering or wearing by itself for any workout. The material is so soft and moisture-wicking and the fit is so cute. It does fit a little bit bigger than I thought it would but I still really love the comfortable fit.

These tights are perfect for spring running! The anatomical design and grippy tape along the calf-cuff ensures that they fit in all the right places and I never felt like they were falling down mid-run. The material is soft and breathable but still very durable to hold up to any workout. The only thing that I don't love is that these do fit a little smaller than my other size small leggings, but I think that a Medium would have been too large.

These shorts are great! I purchased them for hiking, but have been wearing them as a board short and for climbing, as well. I was a little nervous that the material wouldn't feel as comfortable with the DWR finish, but I was wrong! The DWR is great for jumping in the river mid-hike and having dry shorts within minutes. They are a little short for a climbing harness, but with a little adjustment I made them work for climbing too!

This dress is great! It is perfect for wearing to work, or even for throwing on over a swim suit. The material is so comfortable and I love the Ivory Montego pattern. I purchased the small and it is a little bigger on me than I thought it would be.

I recently purchased this shirt for a 4 day hiking/camping trip in southern Utah and I love it! I kept this pullover in my backpack the entire trip to throw on when it cooled off. The material is so soft and moisture-wicking! I love how functional this top is while still having a very flattering fit.

I recently purchased this shirt before a 4 day camping/hiking trip in southern Utah. This shirt was great! I layered it under other shirts when it was cooler, and hiked in it by itself when it was warmer and it held up for 4 days! It is super moisture-wicking and the fabric is so soft. It does seem to run a little small, though. Normally I wear a small, but I purchased a medium in this top.
