Travis Flitton's Bio

My name is Travis. I love the outdoors and often find myself wandering in the wilderness whether it is camping, fishing, hunting, backpacking, or winter sports. I love to be out and about with friends and family going on random adventures. One of my favorite adventures was exploring New Zealand from top to bottom having adventures such as black water rafting to bungee jumping and exploring the local culture of the Maori. I hope to go back and backpack again and re-experience the atmosphere.

I Love this tent. It is really durable and made by reliable people. There is no reason not to have a lower profile, durable tent like the Backcountry Lodgepole tent. If you are packing with 2 people or stuffing 3 people in here, you can split the weight no problem. Otherwise, this is a great tent for car camping or a short pack into somewhere. It takes almost no time to set up with its pole system and easy snap body clips.
Pros
-2 doors for great for easy exit/ entry to not disrupt your camping buddy
-2 vestibules are great for easy gear storage
-durable
Cons
-heavy for backpacking, but doable with split weight
- no prebent pole system- less headroom
- no gearloft

What can I say? They are great pants! They have the zion stretch fabric with 4-direction stretch. Event he waistband has a little give for when you are moving and groovin' around. I'm a big fan of these because they are perfect for the golf course and can be turned around for a quick climb or hike. I love these shorts and the pants are just as good!

I love this kit of dishes for car camping. I usually take out a couple friends when I go car camping and this set just takes care of everyone's needs. You all get your own color so there is no confusion on who's drinks are whos. Everything is big enough for your typical breakfasts and dinners by the campfire. You could even use some of this stuff in the office! The bowls all have lids, so if you have leftovers you can pack it up and bring them with you!
The whole set nests inside of itself and then can fit in the provided storage sack.

Great product!

This is an interesting concept and makes me a little nervous. The one thing I will say is that make sure that the roof is clean before mounting the suction cups. They are RIDICULOUSLY strong, but I don't take that kind of risk on my bikes. Otherwise, I love the idea of the suction cups themselves. The design makes it easy to install and remove.

Nikwax strikes again!
This stuff is great. I love using this spray after a good washing on my goretex jackets and pants. It revitalizes the garments and makes them bead off water again. Anytime you are soaking in some rain or snow, it is time to revitalize your garments. Wash, spray, and dry- as easy as pie! (literally, just a step by step processes not pi itself).

These mittens are warm and fit. They aren't as bulky as some other models bust still maintain great warmth! If you are an under-cuff type of person, these are for you! The primaloft insulation is warm in some of the coldest temperatures and the leather is nice and soft!

This ski is really fun to play on. It is pretty well rounded in a fluffy snow. These things are fatties! 140 at the shovel is no joke! 118 underfoot will keep you afloat in any soft snow but can cram through the mush. The profile is set for a fun time in most conditions at the all-mountain setting. Most people might consider mounting back 1 from recommend to get more of a traditional feel. If you want more of a pivoty turn Mount forward near the Candide mark. If you have any feel to ride switch- same deal. The Candide line is right on the money for your forward and backward needs.

If you are looking for a dedicated pow ski, I would consider these. Have yourself some fun in the sun and some sweet pow pow. Anyone can enjoy these skis in the light and fluffy white goodness that is the Wasatch

This ski is really fun to play on. It is pretty well rounded in a fluffy snow, but still keeps up on piste. At 136 at the shovel and 108 underfoot it can cram through the mush and keep you up on snow. The profile is set for a fun time in most conditions. If you are looking for a dedicated pow ski, I would consider the 4.0's over the 3.0.

Sending some Backcountry jumps just gets silly on these though. With so many sizing options, you will always find your perfect size.

I really liked these shoes. I was a bit nervous switching from my Scarpa and Fiveten shoes to give these a shot. I had never heard anything about Red Chili's products much, but now I'm into them. I like the Vibram enough to play in the gym with them, but I really prefer FiveTen's Stealth rubber. Other than that, the shoes are fantastic! They have held up to the regular abuse of gym climbing and fooling around making up routes and other shenanigans.

I got a half size down from my Nike shoes and they fit perfectly after the break-in period. They do stretch, but not by much.

Smith Optics are great lenses! The frames make it so easy to switch out mid-day with changing conditions. I like the lens shape as well. These are better than the regular I/O's but smaller than the X's. If you want to have a fun ride and see what you are doing at all times, get these.

PS. The warranty for Smith is pretty good. Hit them up if you experience any problems.

I like the Triclimates for a couple of different reasons. This particular one makes a good skiing jacket and a good insulating jacket when pulled apart. The two jackets that zip together is great to reduce the bulk in the middle. The taped seams make them really watertight. Great choice!

I haven't been into the in-the-ear headphone game for years, but recently I snagged a pair of these and have been quite pleased with the sound quality and the additional features that the single button microphone provides. Paired with my google assistant and voice action, I don't have to worry about taking my phone out while working out, skiing, or hiking anymore.

I got the rose lens and it is great for flat and low light days. It holds up on a brighter day as well so you don't have to worry if you are on the fence at the beginning of the day on which lens to use. It is really easy to switch out too. Just pop out a couple of tabs and pop in the new lens.

My wife got these shoes a little while back for just an every day to day use shoe. She really enjoyed the softer footbed and the midsole which provided comfort while walking around downtown for lunch. We experienced a recent snow melt and with that came fun stomping puddles (not that she tromped through them). She did, however, had no choice but to walk through the muck that was presented with that melt. The new Gore-Tex Surround tech did a good job of not only keeping the tops of her feet dry but also the bottoms and the toes! Granted you shouldn't be going ankle deep in water or you will get an overflow in these shoes.

These shoes fit pretty true to size. She regularly wears a size 9 in Nike and Salomon. They do run a bit narrow, so if you have wider feet, beware! You may feel like these are a bit tighter than normal.

These Gloves are a great addition to my glove stash. It uses a full Gore-Tex Pro fabric that is both breathable and VERY waterproof. I have never experienced a leak with these gloves. One really cool feature to be noted is that the fingers are seam free. Yeah, that’s right, no seams mean warmer fingers and no abrasion when opening and closing into a fist!

These gloves were definitely made for a sick ski day. They are a bit light, however, my hands run a little warmer than most other’s which makes them ideal for an average day of skiing. If your hands run cold, I would suggest a different glove for those sub-zero days or to use some next to skin liners to help create a little buffer. If you do run cold with your hands, then you could also use these as a great spring skiing glove.

I use these in my boots and had them cut to fit my other insoles. They fit just like the green soles but haven't had cold feet since then. I really enjoy the perfect fit that they provide and the reduction of stress in my ankles and knees. The warm toes are a nice plus! I would suggest if you fit the green superfeet need, but want a slight boost in toe warmth
