Zoe Worthington's Bio

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and a transplant to Salt Lake City, I have had the opportunity to live in places with some pretty epic outdoor opportunities. I'm a passionate climber, fly fisher, mountain biker, camper and hiker. I like doing these things so much more with the company of my scruffy pup, Woodrow. When I'm not outside, I am baking sourdough bread, at the climbing gym, or re-watching Parks & Rec.

My job at Backcountry is to give you product recommendations specific to you and guidance on outdoor activities. My ultimate goal is to connect you to the best experience you could possibly have on your adventures.

Shoot me an email and tell me about yourself! What are YOUR passions? What adventures are on your horizon?

I like these bibs! They move well and are great for touring and the resort. They are durable while still being breathable. They fit well on my frame. While I wore the smalls, should I buy these, I would size down into the extra smalls.

If you like pockets, keep in mind that the pockets on these are limited and that to vent you have to zip from your armpit or from the bottom of the pants.

I love these bibs! I am built narrower and tall so bibs and ski pants are always very baggy on me. These fit slimmer without being tight. The fabric is comfortable and easy to move in. The venting on the legs is super nice and I like all of the pockets. The downside is that the strap closure over your shoulders sometimes will come undone.

I think this jacket is great! It fit me true to size and was great for both skinning and skiing. I liked the higher height of the pockets. It makes them more accessible when you have a pack on. There isn't venting in the armpits, which I prefer. Finally, I love the style and colors of this jacket.

This jacket is SO lightweight and packable while also keeping you toasty warm! I run cold and was apprehensive that this jacket wouldn't keep me warm enough. I wore it on a yurt trip as a mid layer for hanging out and hiking and I stayed nice and warm. I never even wore my big down jacket. I tried the XS and would actually size down into the XXS because I would like the jacket closer to my body. This jacket does fit long in the torso which I liked!

I haven't worn these much but I am in love! The thick waistband is comfy. I don't even have to tighten or tie the drawstrings. The 7/8 length is perfect for climbing. They are not too loose or too tight. The fabric is airy, lightweight, stretchy and seemingly quick dry. The zippered pocket in the back is a great place to tuck away small items for safe keeping. I get compliments every time I wear these! Honestly, between these pants and the On the Go shorts, these are my favorite pieces of clothing that Backcountry has made. The sizing is true to size. I have a narrow frame and they are baggier on me. On some of my friends they are a big more form fitting. I'll probably be purchasing another pair next paycheck. Email me if you have questions!

Size Purchased: XS

I am 5'7 and 120 lbs and the XS are almost too big for me. They are definitely baggy and not necessarily flattering. If I could, I would have sized down! Overall though, these are comfy and durable pants. The knees have additional fabric and the fabric is sturdy. I wear these climbing but also just around town and at camp. They are pretty versatile if you want comfort! I would recommend these if they fit you well!

Great upgrade.

I had my old yoga mat from 2008...so it was time to upgrade! I like the 5mm cush of this mat and that it was made from sustainable rubber. Like everyone says, out of the package it is stinky. I have used it twice now and the smell is gradually going away. I do think I will be getting a towel to put under my hands for sessions where I get sweatier to keep me from sliding. Overall, this mat is comfy, functional and grippy! I would definitely recommend.

I borrowed this helmet for my fiance to try out. He said the helmet is sturdy and well ventilated. Based on the reputation of this helmet and the MIPS technology, I was happy that he was wearing it! He said that the size adjustment put abrupt pressure on the back of his head, but I think the L/XL was too big for him and this issue could have been resolved with a size down.

I got this collar for my handsome stud of a pup and he looks great in it! Though, he looks great in every collar. I may be biased. The collar prints are randomized. What I mean is that with my dogs neck size, the camo print shows the most. If his neck was bigger, the floral print would show more. I wish it did! I am not a camo girl, but I really liked it with the black and white stripes and flower print. Either way, he looks great and gets compliments on his collar all the time!

These worked great for my day at the resort! It was snowing and windy all day so I was grateful for the goretex. While the bottoms are wider, they fit easily over my boots and have an extra snap to tighten them up a bit. I also liked the venting, the pockets and the sturdy material. I would prefer a more straight legged fit but that is just my preference. I am narrow, so the waist was a little loose for me. I would size down into the extra small, but then I would worry about length. Overall, they looked good and kept me dry!

This jacket is a great mid layer to wear under a shell in some snow or rain, or on its own for some spring and fall days. It is warm and breathable for when you start working a little harder - whether you're hiking, skiing, climbing or just hanging around town. I wish I has sized into the XS. I had plenty of room under the small and could have still layered underneath the size XS.

I was able to get out for a day to demo these skis. I am a fairly novice skier so I can't speak a whole lot to the specifics. But I can say that I turned better in these than on my lighter backcountry set up. I really just needed a pair heavier and wider for the resort and they worked great! They I am 5'7" and was on the 172s. I'd like to try a size down to see how much more control I'd have. Overall, I was content on these all day at the resort!

These are my first pair of touring boots. I am a fairly novice skier. I ski resort and very mellow backcountry. And, I recently broke my ankle. I needed a boot that I could easily get in and out of, that skied backcountry and resort, and that fit a narrow foot with a high instep. I love these! They have enough stability to support me on the downhill (they have good coverage up my shins) and enough give to be comfortable on the way up. I haven't developed any hot spots and I have spent two days backcountry and two days resort in these skis. If you're fairly new to backcountry or just want to be comfortable, I highly recommend these boots!

I got the 40 m length of this rope for a gym rope and I love it! It's important to note that every rope is a different color because Edelrid makes this rope using leftover yarns from their production of other ropes. How cool is that?! (Be ready for anything and if color matters for you, maybe this isn't your rope) I was lucky enough to get a combination of colors that I have received many compliments on. The diameter is solid enough for the gym but runs through my gri gri quite easily. It only twisted/coiled a smidge in my first couple of uses. Definitely a recommend!

I have used this jacket backcountry and resort skiing and I love it. The fabric is sturdy, waterproof and breathable (Gore-tex...duh). I love the zippers that come up from the hips so that you can keep your coat on for the uphill but easily regulate your temperature. There are snaps at the bottom of the zippers too, so that when you unzip the hip vents, the fabric doesn't flap all over the place. The hood is nice and big for a helmet or layers. And the collar is nice and tall for windy days and the downhill. I also just love the look of the jacket. It's a good looking jacket.

I bought this hat for my mom for Christmas and she looks so good in it! It did take me a sec to find the right size for her so I would recommend measuring your head. This hat is versatile and great for both the outdoors and around town. I am getting one for me next!

I like the durability of this bag! It cinches down well and the fabric on the outside is sturdy. The pockets are nice to tuck a brush in, or some jewelry. I highly recommend. I would say, it's a small bag, meaning it is the perfect size for my small hands.

This is my second time buying this leash and only because I lost my first one. I had it for years and there was no wear on it. I am excited to have it again! The feature to attach the leash around your waist is a game changer for running, walking or when you need hands free. I also love the handle right at the clasp for when I need to hold on tighter to my pup. And finally, you can shorten the leash too. All great features! And the leash looks good too.
