Description

Lightweight, welded, and fully waterproof and breathable.

No matter what the weather throws at you, you'll feel unstoppable with the Backcountry Men's Stash Shell. This is a four-season shell that weighs just 13 ounces and offers protection from the elements whether you're hiking, skiing, running, or backpacking. The Bombshell fabric breathes like a champion, and the ascetic design forgoes bells and whistles in favor of simplicity and reliability. Most technical shells of this nature have untaped seams or only the most critical seams taped, but the Stash has all welded seams that fully lock out moisture so you stay bone dry through the nastiest downpours or snowstorms. After you put this jacket through the paces, you'll wonder why you wasted your time within anything else.

  • 20K-rated waterproof fabric offers supreme protection from downpours, heavy snow, and precipitation
  • 20K-rated breathability allows the fabric to transfer sweaty moisture from inside the shell outward and away from your body
  • Bombshell Lite fabric uses mechanical-stretch construction to offer supreme flexibility that moves with you as you slide, climb, and trek through the hills
  • Fully welded construction eliminates opportunities for leaks to occur at the seams and improves overall durability
  • 3-D ergonomic fit means that you can move your shoulders, arms, and torso without experiencing binding or feeling held back in any way
  • Fully-adjustable hood easily fits over a ski or climbing helmet so you can protect your head and face when a storm rolls in mid-session

I'm 5'9" 155 lbs and chest 40", just wondering if I should go with a M or L. I'd like to have enough room underneath to have a base layer and/or a thin fleece.

stash n dash

Nice jacket,sharp looking..sleeves are very long,even more then need to be for stretching,etc..just used this in a an hour and half down pour,,,stayed dried inside..nice gray fabric,much better looking then all the red,baby powder puff blue,greenie,yellow gurlymon jackets out there

how does the stash shell compare with the OR Helium II shell for water resistance and breathibility?

Best Answer Responded on

I found that the Helium II shell's DWR coating seemed to last longer than the Stash's, so water beaded up longer. I think this may be because of the difference in surface texture between the two - the Helium fabric feels a slick and "plasticy" compared to the Stash. As far as waterproff-ness, I would consider it a draw. But if they did get wetted out, the Helium will dry much quicker due to the thinner, slicker material.
For breathability, both do a pretty good job. The much thinner fabric of the Helium may have a slight advantage, but I think the Stash feels more comfortable against bare skin. It's "courser" fabric texture keeps it from clinging to your skin like the thinner, "plasticy" fabric of the Helium.
IMO, these shells are in 2 different categories. The Helium is for ultralight, just-in-case rain protection while the Stash is a beefier (twice the weight!) year-round hard shell. If it fits you and you don't mind humping twice the weight, the Stash is more comfortable for long-term wear, and is much more durable.

keeps you dry!

This jackets really holds up well in wet conditions! Does run a tad small as far as sizing goes, other than that, awesome product.

Incredible!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 240 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

I'm 6'2" and weight 240 with an athletic build. It's hard to find something that's long enough in the arms yet has an athletic fit, but this jacket is fits the bill! The arms are very long so that I have a complete range of movement without causing the jacket to ride up and the waist is by no means excessively large but not excessively small. I feel like Red Ridinghood.

Oh, and did I mention, it has a GOAT! Woohoo!

Bomber

    Size Purchased: Large

I bought this shell and was blown away by how much I love it. Being in British Colombia right now it has been my go to jacket since the day I bought it it has been through the wet test and it passed with flying colors. Ive done everything in this jacket. Skied, climbed (both rock and ice), biked, ran, rafted, and just kicked back for a good ol fashion bonfire. To put it simple. This is a bomber jacket that will see a lot of love.

Hey Pike!

Welcome to the Backcountry community. Thanks for the review on the jacket and glad you're stoked on it!

What's the lining like? Mesh?

Responded on

No lining, no mesh - it's a 3-layer shell.

REALLY WATERPROOF.

Best waterproof shell I've ever owned, it really is waterproof, not just "water resistant". Side note; the Mens Small fits really well for athletic women with wide shoulders and small boobs.

Bullet proof.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 3"
    Weight: 195 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

This jacket is one of the best investments that I have made within the last 5 years. Its fit is a tad tighter and tailored, yet it isn't too slim. I can wear a medium weighted flannel beneath it, fully zipped, and not feel as if it is going to tear the seams. I use this for everything from hiking, to Crossfit, or even just hanging out around the house. The sleeves run long - I have a 6'7" wing span, and they run down to the upper 1/3 of my hand - so this could be a red flag to folks who do not enjoy having baggy sleeves. All in all, this jacket is incredible. Well done Backcountry.com!

It has a goat on it, so that's a plus

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 6' 3"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: XXL

I'm 6' 3'' and 180 lbs. I bought the XL and ended up selling it to a friend and buying an XXL. I felt the XL was a little small length wise.(arms,chest and hood fit great though) This thing will protect you from the wind, rain, and snow. I use this thing daily with a fleece underneath. I've had it 11 months and its showing some wear on the sides. (probably from crawling thru some caves in Peru) I bring it on all my hikes in Colorado, it's amazing how much warmer you feel being well protected from the wind. I bought this mainly to ski in and finally tested it on the slopes this last month. On the colder days I will definitely need more layers when skiing in this thing. This was also my first shell so I wasn't sure what to expect. If this jacket ever falls apart I will buy another. I recommend this to anyone hiking, skiing, and daily use.

How durable is this jacket?

I am 6' 5'', 190 lbs. I usually wear a large jacket size (TNF, MH, Patagonia). Patagonia seems to fit the best of them all. Will a large work for me? Or should I bump it up to an extra large? I ALWAYS have problems with my arm length...

Best Answer Responded on

So I'm 6'4" and 190lbs and I purchased the Large and have been completely happy with the way the jacket fits. I've had it for about one year now. It has great arm length, which is a big part of why I like Backcountry gear. I highly recommend this jacket...it's a quality product at a great price.

You want this

  • Fit: True to size

I have lots of jackets because I like to do a lot of things outside. I have had this puppy over two years now and it is still going strong against my more expensive namebrand jackets... As a matter of fact this one is so pimp I like to beat up my OR, Patagonia or Carhartt jackets when roughing it and save this one for wearing round Denver town.

Excellent shell by the looks of it

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I gifted this to a friend. He is approx 6'4" and 185 lbs. The LG fit a bit short at the waist, but the lengthy arms on this jacket fit his perfectly.
The shell appears to be made of an excellent, lightweight, fully waterproof fabric. Very packable, and it looks like it will withstand downpours for a long time and not lose its waterproof-ness. Much better fabric than $100-150 TNF/Columbia/Patagonia/etc rain jackets. Plus, it has a reflective goat on it. win/win.

Sooo versatile!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

in the mountains in the winter, on the east coast in a summer thunderstorm, layered with down, or on a run, this shell can't be beat. The price is nice too. Great value, super functional, and within reach year round. The sleeves are very long and fit my ape arms better than any other piece of clothing I wear. I'm 6'6", 215 lbs and bought the XL and have room to layer with down and/or fleece comfortably.

Stops wind like nobody's business

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I have had this jacket for awhile but haven't had a real opportunity to see how it handles weather. Well Dec. 13, 2014 I got to test it out climbing boundary peak in Nevada. There was allot of snow and I stayed dry. Once on the ridge line the wind kicked up and the temperature got cold. This jacket stopped the wind. I didn't even need an insulating layer because the wind chill was the factor to why it was so cold. This jacket stopped the wind like it was nothing. It is a shell so when temperatures really do dip I recommend an insulating layer. However, this jacket will keep you dry and prevent the wind from chilling your bones. Like mentioned before it fits on the slim side. You might consider getting it upsized to fit layers better.

How windproof is this jacket?

I would agree with the last answer. This jacket cuts wind well.

You'll be begging for rain with this on

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I wore this to a local college football game in a torrential downpour and I was the only one that was dry after the game. That alone leads me to highly recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a quality shell. It does fit a little on the slim size which is fine for me. I bought a medium and I am 5'8", 160 pounds, with a 39 inch chest. Fits great!
