Description

Unwavering in the face of Mother Nature.

The Stoic Series takes everything we’ve learned about fit and function and distills it into garment form. The 2.0 Shell is a backcountry purist’s dream: light, quiet, and cut to fit an athletic frame, it carries zero unnecessary features and provides unrestricted range-of-motion for the most demanding users. Our proprietary 3-ply Bombshell 2.0 stretch fabric brings impressive 20K/15K-rated waterproof breathability, while 3D-engineered, welded-seam construction enhances seam strength and shaves critical grams from your pack. Two laser-cut hand pockets and a single Napoleon chest pocket stash critical gear behind watertight YKK zips, and the contoured, helmet-compatible hood locks out the most driven of storms. Dual-zip armpit vents are easily accessible even under backpack straps, and a bamboo-carbon tricot lining fights odors naturally. In your normal size, the Stoic 2.0 is a trim, weatherproof shell for fast, three-season alpine assaults. Go one size up, and it becomes a precision suit of armor atop your Siphon Wool or Primaloft Hooded Jacket.

My stoic 2.0 is unglueing at the seams and I'm wondering how I can repair that. If seems that if I can just get the right glue I can tape it back myself.

Sweet jacket - size up

Awesome shell. Use it as my everyday winter ski jacket in mammoth. Into it's 2nd season and it's holding up well. Definately slim fit - normally i'm an xl but went for xxl to get good sleeve length. Not too bulky/loose either.

Do I need to treat this jacket with water-proofing after I wash it? Will Nikkwax spray work?

Hey Tom,

Initially chucking this thing in the dryer will maintain the water repellent coating. Eventually (say 4 or 5 washes) you'll want to treat it with some cleaning and proofing agents. I would suggest Nikwax Tech Wash to clean the fabric, and TX-Direct to renew the water repellent coating. Hope that helps.

Great shell!!!!

I am in between kids and men sizes. I love this shell. I went to about 5 different ski shops trying to find a shell that would fit, and could not find a shell with pit zips that would fit. This jacket fits great.

Score Another Win for Backcountry.com Product Development

Perfect fit for those with longer arms. Im 5'10 with 35" sleeves and a large fit perfectly with a little bit of space for a midweight layer beneath, I think I could have even gone with a medium for an even tighter fit. I've used this jacket in hurricane conditions, mountain biking in the rain, and skiing and its great for every situation. Check out the complete review here http://frsk.me/dt

Review Title

great jacket. totally waterproof. sat in a torrential downpour in Tampa FL for 4 hours and a drop didn't get thru. opened up the big pitvents to breath and was fine. I am 6'4" 235 and a XXL fits nicely, not too big not too tight. just ordered a Stoic Welder HI to complement this jacket for trips to UT. I like this jacket better than the Arc'teryx Stingray in usually wear and it's 1/2 the cost.

i would go with a medium that way you can always layer with it and you want the arms kind a long so long sleeve shirts don't ride up.

Really? I'm a 36R in suit Jackets, and it's hard to imagine a medium fitting. hmmm.....

I know you dont show a size small in the carbon color but is there anywhere i could get one?

Responded on

You're going to have a tough time finding one. The "Backcountry.com" brand is now being marketed as "Stoic" brand. All the new stuff is being made as Stoic gear, so there won't be any more of these made. Your only chance might be to snag one on geartrade.com, if there's any left.

Summit Sky Puts Blaze Orange to Shame

I'm a recently graduated wildlife biologist tracking birds for the winter in the Black Hills and I seem to ruin gear, so I bought this shell looking for something a little more rugged. After destroying an EMS and a Helly Hansen rain shell in the last year and then my 3 in 1 TNF winter jacket too, I settled on this shell due to the good reviews and awesome price. I got it in an XL due to my awkward body (5-10, 190 and large shoulders) and it fits perfectly. In the last three months it's stood up to barbed wire, trees, rocks, wind, rain and snow without a hiccup. The pockets are pretty well placed and the little bit of fleece around the collar is an awesome touch on these raw windy days. Only problem is the color. It's a little on the bright side for my tastes and I don't mind it, but in the small rural community I live in I've turned into the "the guy with the blue coat". It's about the most visible thing in these Ponderosa Pine forests and makes blaze orange look dull. The up side is that no one will shoot me (accidentally, at least) during hunting season. I work most days in areas burned by wildfires and get covered in soot, but every time this sucker gets wet, it washes it all off. Occasionally, when I'm looking straight at the zipper without gloves it won't engage, but when I'm not paying attention or have my mittens on it zips right up. Go figure. Bottom line is that it's wicked waterproof, kills the wind and so far has put up with heavy abuse and I'm more than impressed.

How will this perform while snowboarding?...

How will this perform while snowboarding? Since its such a nice fit, can you properly layer enough to stay warm while carving down the mountain?

Responded on

if you want to layer, size up. you wont have any trouble if you go larger. it does run very fitted and athletic. i am 5'9'' and 145 lbs, med is great for a light summer 14 peak bagging shell, or early/late season skinning, but if i want layers, i need the large

Responded on

D'oh, I got a large. I'll probably need an XL in order to layer. Or I could just lose a bunch of weight. Since you are sold out of XL, what else do you suggest?

Look Ma, I'm bulletproof!

Alright, so maybe I would wouldn't stand in front of a loaded weapon with this jacket, but it definitely feels bulletproof. I put it up against some lofty (and expensive) competition and it holds it's own. Backcountry put their name on it, so you know it's no slouch. You could buy Patagonia, TNF, MH, Arc'teryx, sure - if you want to spend twice as much.
A note on comparing it to those other companies though, the sizing is a little smaller. I wear a medium shell in basically everything else. I'm 6' 175 and I picked this jacket up in a large, which is basically perfect for fitting a fleece underneath.
The lining is comfortable against the skin. The welded seams save weight and make it uber-waterproof, the angled cuffs are an awesome touch, and the summit blue looks great in person. I've spent some time in the rain with this jacket and stayed nice and dry. It also breaths well.
My only possible complaints - it only has 3 pockets, which is the least of all the ski shell's I have. It's probably a good thing cause I won't be weighting myself down with a bunch of crap that I don't need. On the flip side of that, it's good for fast and light. If you're wearing a backpack the lack of pocket space doesn't matter anyways.
The only other thing is that it doesn't have a powder skirt. Obviously it says this in the specs, so I'm not docking it any points for that. I have a one piece for all the deep days, but this would be a really unbelievable ski shell if it had a powder skirt. If I were expecting some really nasty weather I could also stash this jacket when I go backpacking, it packs small and only weighs 22 oz (10 more than my Precip).
Overall this is an excellent all around jacket; skiing, backpacking, climbing, it's capable of keeping you comfortable regardless of the pursuit.

Second crack ... sweet jacket

So this is my second review, I had to return my previous XL for a XXL ... so a bit about fit. I tried on both a Arc'teryx side winder jacket and that XL fit me perfectly, the Stoic 2.0 XL was a lot more snug around the lower portion to the point where I didn't think I'd have much room for layers.

Having said that, the shoulder/chest area is quite ample, however the lower half really tapers off quite drastically ... I'm 5'11" and 230 lbs so keep that in mind when ordering.

So ... the jacket itself ... the bamboo liner/thing that's on the inside of the jacket is incredible, you can wear it over a T-shirt as a rain jacket and you don't get that sticky Gore-tex on skin feeling.

So far I've worn it as a rain jacket and it's done a great job. For the money this is a wicked jacket. I'll post another review after I take it up skiing this winter.

Have any ladies bought this jacket for themselves, or are there any 125 lb 5'7" guys who wear this? The sky blue is just so much nicer than the brown in the ladies. I'm looking at the size small and layering it over a down sweater.
