Jill Layfield's Bio

I'm originally from San Francisco. I moved to Park City eight years ago to live in the mountains and work for Backcountry.com. The San Francisco Bay Area has some amazing climbing (the picture to the left is the Egg at Stinson Beach) but Park City/Salt Lake City has so much more to do outside -- and no fighting traffic to take advantage of all there is to do. My dogs are especially happy in Park City -- no tics and no fleas!

I love to ski, climb, mountain bike and trail run. There are about 300 miles of single track right out my back door...

I'm pretty sure I have the best job in the world - I'm the CEO of Backcountry.com. Have feedback for me? Hit me up at CEO@backcountry.com.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these for running and mountain-biking. I got them in blue, and they look pretty slick. They work as both casual and sports shades. Good balance between wind and sun protection, and ventilation. Nice and light. Very comfortable, with not too tight a fit (sunglasses that squeeze my head tend to give me headaches). Usual top quality Julbo optics. The only downside for me was that the arms are completely straight, and I found that the glasses would eventually start to slide down my nose. Spent a few minutes with a hairdryer to put a slight bend in the arms, and problem solved.
