Tiffany's Bio

The bionic mountain woman. Living proof that you can recover from a severely broken back to hike, backpack and ski again! During the week I'm at NASA. Weekends are spent somewhere in the Sierra.

Just when you think one of your favorite Arc'teryx pieces can't get any better, it does! I have had several of the old style Vertices (with the elastic around the face opening) over the years. When they redesigned them last season, I was stoked! The hood and balaclava are so much better now! I own every color from last season and this season and use them every weekend at Mammoth and in the Sierra backcountry. I've also been known to wear them to work. It's versatile and comfy. Perfect for me!

I'm super low key and love the fact I can get away with wearing Arc'teryx to work. Fell in love with the comfort of the Sirrus top last season and thought I'd give the henley version a whirl. Warning: size down! A medium in the old Sirrus top was great last season - not too tight, not too loose. With the henley, I had to size down to a small! I was swimming in the medium. Great top, just size down if you want the same fit as the old style! Thank goodness for the great return/exchange policy!

These shades are amazing! I was looking for something for hiking that is lightweight, doesn't fog (I have issues with that), works in any lighting (bluebird Sierra days, hiking below tree line, etc.), and wouldn't interfere with my beloved Cubs hat. I tried the Prizm Trail version first, but quickly didn't like how they distorted the color of the sky. They were great for in the trees, but I hated them above tree line. My Gearhead - Geoff - recommended trying the Jade Iridium polarized and I'm so glad I did. These have fit the bill so far and I've tested them in several situations now. Highly recommend the EVZERO frames if you're outdoorsy oriented!

I have the worst time when it comes to finding clothes that the way I like. I'm pretty darn active, but still have a butt, a bit of a stomach and am fairly small chested. Usually stuff is too tight or loose in one area and perfect in another, but never a winning combo. This dress was perfect once I put it on - comfy, flattering and just plain amazing! A perfect mountain casual wedding dress that I can wear all summer long!

Tank is super comfy and looked great when I first wore it. It was a bit large in the armhole area, but that seems to be an issue with most Pata tanks it seems lately. Problem is that after an hour or two, the tank itself stretched out and became extra large on me it seemed. Should have gotten a smaller size. If you get this tank, I'm sure it would be perfect... if you size down! For reference, I'm generally a medium in tops (pata, arc'teryx, etc).

Absolutely love these shoes! I have slightly screwy feet thanks to nerve damage from an accident, and so it's hard for me to find shoes that are comfy and don't give me blisters. The Mutants are perfect! I just used them on a 55+ mile backpack through Evolution Basin in the Sierra Nevada. I had zero blisters and foot issues while covering on and off trail terrain (and big mile days). These shoes are super grippy too! Love them!
