Born and raised in Connecticut, the icy slopes of the East Coast gave Neil his first taste of Snowboarding. When his family migrated west to Utah, he began to see the potential the mountains had to offer beyond ski resort boundaries and beyond his freestyle background. Ever since cutting his first board in half to make a splitboard, Neil has been a strong advocate for backcountry enjoyment. With his passion for photography, he is able to motivate and inspire the outdoor community through the lens of his camera.
The Ferrosi Convertibles are just about the only set of pants i use all summer. For backpacking it's really nice to have the option of shorts or pants, without having to pack separate pairs. The best of both worlds!
The Helium II jacket blows me away—how light and packable it is. It stuffs down to the size of a fist, and hides away for times of need. I use it for mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking and everything in between. It's great lightweight insurance for questionable conditions.
