John Langer's Bio

My first love is the outdoors. When I'm not fielding calls at Backcountry, I'm up hiking, skiing or climbing in the mountains, or fishing in the local rivers and streams. I've been in Utah for over a year now, and spent 7 years before that in Bozeman, Montana (Still considered my home!). Hit me up if you have any gear questions or want some recommendations for your next outdoor adventure!

The Other "Roof Rack"
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Don't want to kill your gas mileage? Don't like hoisting gear on top of your car? Want something that you can remove easily after your road trip? Then this box is for you! Quality construction, easy to mount/remove, comes complete with brake lights/turn signals and an optional license plate mount. You can tip the whole unit down away from the car to access the back of your vehicle. The box itself is very spacious, and allows us to take the dog/baby and all of our gear on road trips. (Now I can put off needing a minivan for at least 2-3 more years)

Got this with the intention of using it on the insulated tube (http://www.backcountry.com/camelbak-thermal-control-kit) unfortunately the insulation is a little to big in diameter for the clip. I ended up pairing it up with my standard camelbak hose on my summer pack and it works great.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second pair of Speedcross 3 GTX shoes. The first pair served me extremely well. They are durable, comfortable, and never caused blisters or pain. One thing to note: mine fit a little more snug than I'm used to in a running/workout shoe. I thought I might need to size up this time around, but the half size bigger caused some heel slippage so I returned them for the same size I had been running in previously.

This helmet is lightweight and comfortable... almost makes it feel like you're not even wearing it. The design keeps your head cool and protected. Simple but effective.

These are great, super low profile snacks to add to your backpacking pack. I've tried all of the flavors and here's how I would rank them (my opinion), in order:

1. Lemon (Lemon!? Counterintuitive, I know, but these are DELICIOUS)
2. Chocolate (Still awesome, and only listed at #2 because it's lacking in chocolate flavor)
3. Strawberry (These were just...Yuck. And I love Strawberry everything)

For your big water needs!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I drink a lot of water. At my desk, I used to have two 27oz. Klean Kanteens to handle my demanding thirst and reduce the need for trips to the water cooler. The 40oz is a great way to consolidate. The thing is big and heavy-duty, with the same opening as the 27oz. bottles. Maybe not the best for hiking/backpacking trips, but perfect for around the home or office.

Bought this a year ago to replace an older Camelbak model. I was looking for a good daypack/hydration pack that was lightweight but most importantly, had good ventilation along the back. There's nothing worse than having a hot pack sticking to your back as you're hiking along, am I right? The NVIS ventilated back panel is awesome. The pack is comfy as hell when full and air flows freely between the pack and my back. So far the pack has proved to be extremely durable, even after a slide down a scree field, there are no tears/rips/frays anywhere on the pack. I love it!
