Sarah Young's Bio

A Gearhead spouse who LOVES backcountry.com and all the great gear. Not a hard core outdoor enthusiast, but I enjoy our beautiful backyard here in the Wasatch mountains. I am proof that backcountry.com is for everyone, not just those who have been able to summit a few 14ers (although kudos to those who have).

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned these for over a year and wear them working out, walking the park, driving, or just running errands. They are super versatile, warm, and the soft shell allows you to still have good grip. I left mine on a vacation, ordered from Backcountry, and they arrived the NEXT DAY. Great gloves, great service, win-win.

And everyone has one at my place of work. We all got to go skiing on Friday, and every single woman showed up in a SmartWool top. I always get itchy in wool, and these things are really comfortable. The only thing I have noticed is that it says it can go in the dryer on low, but when I did that, my shirt got small holes in it after a couple of times. This time I am hang drying my shirt and it seems to be holding up better. If you are looking for a comfortable base layer, this is it.

This is a great first fleece for your little one, that is soft, cozy, and easy to care for (washer machine and dryer friendly). One thing, the body is SHORT on this jacket. My son wears 6-12 month right now and we got him an 18 month so he could wear it longer, but it fits him now. The sleeves are longer, but the body of the jacket runs shorter. If you want a jacket that is a bit more proportional I would recommend going up to the toddler sizes.

I have had a Borealis for over 5 years and it's still going strong. I used it for school at the University of Colorado in Boulder and it weathered snow storms, rain, and being thrown on the lawn for relaxing in the sun. I've continued to use it as a gym bag, a school bag (I know teach), and on travel through airports. Perfect number of compartments, easily adjustable to fit all sizes (I have a smaller frame and it still works great for me). Highly recommended, durable bag.

I love this website, and have a couple of things so I can support backcountry.com, but this t-shirt isn't my favorite. It was fitted (exactly like it says in the product description), and the neck was a little too large for my taste. Great soft shirt though, if tight is your thing this is for you to show off your curves, otherwise get a size larger.

Supporting this awesome website with a great sweatshirt. It is a light weight sweatshirt, so not too bulky, good for wearing in the evening at a campfire, but it's not going to keep you warm in the arctic. I got the pacific blue color, which was closer to Navy than it appeared on my computer, but I like it better. Nice comfortable fit, not to baggy, or too tight. Everyone needs some backcountry gear!

... and I am no different. These are great pants for lounging around the house, or going for a run. They have a good thickness to them, so they aren't going to tear if you snag them on a branch while hiking. Super comfortable, definitely follow the sizing chart, I usually wear a small size pant, but based on the chart got a medium due to waist size and they fit great. Everyone needs a pair of these.

So I LOVE the North Face Akira pants, so I got this top hoping for a smashing pair of sweats, but found I didn't like this top as much. I like to be able to layer my sweatshirts over other t-shirts and tanks. This is a fitted sweatshirt (especially in the arms), so it can only really go over another fitted top. I think I may try exchanging it for a size up, since the material is soft and they go great with the Akira pants. I'll edit this once I check out the medium.

After having a baby, I got these shoes for extra support while taking my son out on walks in the stroller. My back was hurting from my regular shoes, and the pain went away when I started wearing these. Plus they stay tight on your feet so you don't have to worry about readjusting your laces all the time. Great sole grip on slippery sidewalks and streets. They were comfortable from the first time I put them on, and they fit true to size. Highly recommended.
