Kayla Weiser's Bio

I grew up in the mountains of Utah and Colorado, and have found myself unable to leave it. During the winter when not in school, I am all in skiing. I have been telemarking for 11 years now, and won't be stopping any time soon! I enjoy mostly Big Mountain, BC, and park. Outside of skiing, I also dig rock climbing, whitewater paddling, paddleboarding, camping, hiking- pretty much anything outdoors. I love getting out with my boyfriend, and our year-old Newfie, Camber.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I needed to replace an old pump that had the tendency to only work 30% of the time, and I'm glad that I finally upgraded to this Blackburn! It's super easy to use- the base is wide enough so your feet don't slip off, and it's very easy to attach to your valve. The pumping rate is pretty quick, and easy to see the pressure gauge.
In the end, I think this is a great basic pump that works, and it's a killer price too!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked up the Osprey Talon pack, which I absolutely love, but it needed a hydration bladder. This was the perfect choice. Compared to my old Camelbak, this is MUCH easier to fill, and to clean. I like the slide-seal closure, as it's super easy to manage and it's very secure. I also really like the magnetic bit valve feature- this does come with both the magnet on the bite valve itself, as well the piece that fits on to your sternum strap. So far, the magnet has worked well through both mountain biking and hiking. The bite valve too is easy to use, and I appreciate how easy it is to lock.
So far, this bladder has worked very well- no complaints!

I got this for my man to replace an old Camelbak that was literally starting to fall apart. And oh boy, is this an upgrade!
He primarily uses it for biking, so the tool pouch is an awesome feature to keep everything organized. Other than the standard tube, CO2 kit, and multi-tool, he can easily carry an additional layer and some snacks, plus a full bladder. The magnetic feature on the hydration hose is a great addition, especially when you're moving a lot. The back panel is super comfortable and allows for pretty good air movement, and the hip belt is comfortable to use to keep it in place too.
All in all, if you're in the market for a smaller hydration pack, no need to look further! This one is a gem.

They do what they're made to do! Nice and grippy without being obnoxiously sticky. They seem to be pretty durable too so far, not so easy to shred. Also super easy to install, a win all around!

This is now my go-to for warm weather riding. The fabric is super soft, and doesn't feel very suffocating like some other moisture-wicking tops. It still breathes well! Wicks moisture great too, and easy to clean.
I agree in that it runs a little small- I normally wear a size XS-S top, but got the Medium to have a little extra room for movement. The Medium fits me perfect in the shoulders, and only a little loose in the torso- it almost fits like a big size S. So if you're in between, definitely size up!

I never would have thought that bike gloves were so important. Little did I know... I got these after losing my last pair, which didn't have any sort of padding. My hands get super sore on longer rides or a full day of downhill riding. The gel inserts on these are AWESOME. By no means does it completely eliminate the problem, but it noticeably helps. The mesh body of the glove breathes pretty well, and the silicone on the fingers helps keep your fingers stay in place. They seem to be pretty durable so far too after putting a couple months of riding on them.
As far as sizing goes, I am usually a women's M (going off of my Black Diamond ski gloves) and the medium in these fits perfect. Definitely would recommend!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got these for my pops to replace his old beat-up Sidi's , and he has no complaints. He is an avid cross-country mountain biker, and these have been the perfect shoe for him to stand up to the continual use and abuse.
In regards to fit, he says Sidi has always been the best for his more narrow foot. Tight comfortable fit that guarantees no sloshing around, and easy to ratchet down.
This is his second (maybe third?) pair of the Dominator 5s, with how highly he speaks of them I'm not sure he'll ever make the switch to another pair!

I too have a handful of Hydroflask bottles, and love them all! Super durable, very good at keeping items hot/cold, and very secure lids- so you don't have to worry about spilling your goods everywhere. The lid on this is alright- not my favorite, but easy to clip into things. And it's definitely a plus that they make interchangeable lids too!

I got this for my man, and it's a great jersey all around. Super light and airy for the hot days, and the material is soft on the skin. Loose fitting for ease of movement riding, but not overly large- he wears his usual size in this no problem. Another win for Dakine!

I got this for my bf originally as a long-sleeve biking layer, but it honestly has broadened to become the every-day layer. The material is SUPER soft, and the fit is nice. Slightly bigger- easy to wear over another shirt/jersey, but not super baggy. He typically takes a Large, and the L fits perfect through the shoulders and body. The colors are rad too, very vibrant! So far, so good on washing- I'd recommend the gently cycle, and air drying to keep its shape. All in all, super bomber flannel, can't wait for more colors!

I got these as an upgrade for my bf- he used the POC shorts for years, but started to complain that they were too tight and just not comfortable. These are a HUGE upgrade- not only does he enjoy them for riding, he tends to hang out casually with them too. The material is nice and light- fairly soft to the touch too. They vent really well along the inner-leg mesh panels. And overall, they just fit much better- he can actually utilize the pockets and move freely, but they're not overly baggy. The waist fits true as well.

I picked up a pair of these to replace some shredded manufacturers grips on my Juliana, and I do admit I am quite pleased. They are pretty comfortable- not super cushy, but comfortable for a full day of riding. Good and grippy without being obnoxious. I went on a trip and forgot my gloves so I had to roll bare-handed with these, and they worked great (I definitely would have been miserable with my old grips). Super easy to install, I like that they've got the locking rings. The fun colors are an added plus too!

These are pretty neat socks. True to size, they stay in place, nice low cut, and keep their shape after washing. The ventilation is nice too! Not much else to say about them- if you're looking for a good solid low sock, I would definitely recommend them!

Grippy Goodness

I finally got turned on to platforms, and picked these up- couldn't have asked for anything more! They are nice and wide, and super grippy paired with my Five Tens. They are pretty beefy too- definitely not the lightest chunks, but they won't break prematurely. Just make sure you don't take one to the shin!
All in all, great pedal for the price point. And the fun colors are bomb too.

Once I finally got into mountain biking last year, I learned rather quickly that it wasn't very forgiving... Bone bruise to the elbow, plenty of blood- it was time to step up the game and invest in a good pair of elbow pads. I had purchased the VPD Air knee pads prior, and LOVED how low profile and comfortable they were. These are the same! The fit is again on point- I went by the sizing chart and measured in between a S and M, and got the smaller so I didn't run into the slip issue. As of yet, no issue with them sliding down, though it's a minor struggle to pull them on (definitely worth it though). In the end, they look good, they feel good, and they WORK!
