TylerJacobsen's Bio

Get out and do something.

I'm a Montana guy; born and raised. I get out when I can backpacking, fishing, and skiing. I enjoy getting innovative, high performance, and affordable gear. I enjoy pushing the limits of the gear but really I like pushing my limits. I like seeing what I can do by pushing myself mentally and physically, and overcoming adversity the outdoors can dish out. And it's nice when your gear can assist you in overcoming this adversity. After all you are both working together towards the same goal you set out to accomplish when you went outdoors on a mission.

5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 185 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Honestly, the most versatile, warmest, lightest, and durable garb I have. I wear it all the time no matter what I'm doing. Working in the office, fishing, skiing, backpacking, going to a football game: you name it. Spend the money, it is well worth it. I got the medium because the large was just a little to big. the medium fits my slim frame really well and I wasn't interested in wearing it over the top of my jackets. I wanted it fitted so that I could layer up with it. I love this vest!

Pretty good for what I did to 'em!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these gaiters for my trip into the Maze District in Canyonlands National Park over Thanksgiving 2015. We were there for 5 days. It is an unforgiving desert environment of sand and rock. We did a ton of hiking and scrambling, and had to do some minimal climbing (perhaps I will call is short vertical extreme scrambling). I wore them with my Vasque Talus UltraDry Hiking Boots. I knew beforehand these gaiters were designed more for trail running, but I wasn't concerned about the gaiter's waterproof abilities, I had them for keeping stuff out of my boots. I was much more concerned about the latter than the former. The gaiters survived the trip but they are now on their last of nine cat lives. The little hook/secures to attach to laces are all loose and bent. Those little dudes really took a beating. I wore a couple holes in the sides but other than that they worked great. For the price, they did exactly what I wanted them to do do, keep the crap out of my boots. I will still get some more use out of them, they are down but not out! the material is really nice light and quick drying. The velcro is a really good idea, I have the pieces on my boots still. The grippy material around the bottom layer is really nice too, keeps the gaiter in place. Really what is keeping this review form being 5 stars is the little hook secures broke without much stress but again I put these dudes through a tough test, so maybe they deserve five.
