I'd love to pick this up for my GF for...
I'd love to pick this up for my GF for Christmas (Grey in M would be perfect). Are there any more on order?
Looks pretty good; I'm a traditionalist, gear-wise, so I'm skeptical of all the welded seams. The tricot lining around the neck and chin area is pretty champion.
Had to return because of small size. My wife is an xsmall wife, but this jacket was xsmaller. Tight in the shoulders, but no armpit issues as others have described.
Backcountry jackets have quickly become my favorite due to the smart design, fabrics and longer lenghts. This shell is awesome and super waterproof yet still breathes nicely. The goat rocks!
Bought one of these for my sister and one for my self. Both of us love it. I use mine for everything from climbing to backpacking to buying groceries at the store. Love this shell.
I'm a tall guy (6"5') but I'm really skinny (170lbs) I got a XL so that the sleeves would fit. The sleeves fit great. And because it has such an athletic cut, it's not even that baggy. When I put a fleece beneath it, it fits fairly snug, but I still have full range of motion.
"Bottom Line: The Stoic 2.0 Shell weathers the storm." I'm often wary of claims such as this, but with the 2.0, it's OK. It's very tough. I've (accidentally) dropped sharp objects on it with no results, hiked through thick alders with not even a scratch added to it's visage, and rolled over rocks with the same results.
My Bottom Line? The Stoic 2.0 Shell delivers.
looking for a v.d. present for 'da wife....
looking for a v.d. present for 'da wife. 5'2" about 120-30 lbs and us a sz 2-4. Is the XS too small?
I ordered the xs and it is too small. Although I'm taller than your wife at 5'5" I weigh less 108. The sleeves are short on me (probably be ok for someone shorter) and the shoulders and arms are too tight and I don't have very beefy arms. Hope that helps! I would not recommend the xs for her weight.
First the positives...sits super nice, perfectly cut for women, nice length in both the arms and torso. The color is great as well, i love the grey with that darker red.
Now the bad....it is not water proof!!!!! I used it biking to work which takes about 20 minutes, it was raining ok..not like a heavy heavy downpoor but still more than just misting. Anyway, my shoulders and chest were soaked and it took the actual jacket forever to dry. This jacket is also quite thick and does not breath very well. If you want to use this for the winter as a snowboard or ski jacket then i think you will love it (unless you need a ski guard which this jacket does not have) if you are looking for a rain coat then this is not the jacket for you. Sadly I'm only giving it 2 stars since I was really hoping it would be more waterproof than it is.
bought it for my girl and she loves it... sleves are long enough, it fits great all around. Absolutly waterproof, the water just beads and rolls off of this as if it was a rubber rain coat. Great lightweight shell.
I have been looking for a good light waterproof jacket for some time and was really pleased when I found this. I am 5' 3" 110lbs and I got an XS. The armpits are not small, more like there is just a little more fabric there so you can have complete movement in your arms, really great for climbing. The armpits don't bother me at all. The cut of the jacket it wonderful, I hate that most technical wear for women doesn't have a nice female cut, but this jacket does. Bought the jacket for use with light layers underneath (like light fleeces) which it is great for, if you want to layer more than go up a size. This jacket is quality. It was not cheeply made at all. I am an ex ski racer, I am use to dealing with only top quality gear and this jacket makes the cut, the whole jacket is fully weather proof, all seams and zippers are sealed beautifully. Plus the fabric is truly top notch.
Not worth it to buy
The armpit area is really tight, and after i tried on, I feel like a penguin, arms can't be comfortable. Also, feel that the lines are seems like glue together, I think it look cheap. Don't like it at all, so return it.
I love this jacket. I have used it for biking, cross-country skiing and winter hiking, all in cold and windy conditions, and it functions perfectly. Great details like the adjustable hood and two-sided underarm zips. When my sister and mum saw it, I had to order two more for them. Awesome deal at $68.99. If you want to layer a lot underneath or want a more relaxed fit, order up a size, but for a slim fit it is not necessary (and still comfortable).
Awesome jacket for an incredible price! I got mine on sale for $68.99 and for this price I could not buy anything close to this product. I got the Carbon color.
The fit is very feminine with a very defined waist line, which is quite special among outwear. I really like it.
I got size S while I am 5'7" and 120 lbs. Fits great with a room for another layer (I use Siphon wool hoodie in Berry, size S, got it also here for $53.69, yet another great deal!).
The Stoic Shell is truly waterproof. Some reviewers did not like the material, but I love it. It's a very technical material with a smooth finish. All seams are sealed including zippers. The overall design and workmanship is top notch.
The Carbon is light gray color with true red zippers. The jacket has a whole bunch of perfect little details such as adjustable hood.
Great jacket, sleeves were a little shorter than I wanted though
Overall the jacket is a great buy, I could not be more happy with it except the sleeves were a little short. I couldn't tell you that this will be the case for everyone but make sure that when you buy the jacket you take measurements of the person who will be wearing it. Right now it is as waterproof as an arc'teryx jacket, I just hope it stays that way.
What are the hood controls on this jacket?...
What are the hood controls on this jacket? I'm used to a velcro tab on the back, a cinch around the back of the head and the standard cinch around the edge of the hood. From the pictures, it looks like this jacket only has a cinch around the hood. Can someone fill me in? Thanks.
It's got a cinch around the hood and a cinch around the back (at about eye level), but no velcro, so if it rides too low over your eyes, you're just going to have to shove it back up.
Great jacket for a tall thin person. I couldn't really layer under it which I feel is very important. Otherwise, a really elegant, well made garment.

Got this one from my boyfriend for Christmas and I have worn it just about everyday since then. A lot of people have said to buy a size up but I usually buy a small and this small fits perfectly and still has room for stuff underneath (wore it skiing with a fleece and two baselayers underneath and it was still comfortable). Blocks the wind and water really well and the big pit-zips keep it airy plus it has a good feminine fit which my old shell did not have. Would definitely recommend it!
Got this for my wife for Christmas and I don't know who likes it more; me or her. Do get one size up than usual. She can layer underneath with a fleace or light down jacket or wear it by itself. Even then it doesn't look baggy. I've been looking for months for a stout rain jacket to get her without paying $250+ for one. Great deal, very satisfied!
Wish it would have been a little bigger. I ordered a medium, but I think a large would have been too big. I can wear a thin fleece under it, anything heavier would not be comfy.
this is a an awesome coat... waterproof and pit zips make it great for a ski shell and it has a nice women's fit. it fits a little tight, so if you're looking for something to layer under buy a size up.
Great brand, Backcountry
Bought this for my girl and she loved it. Function is phenomenal - look is better than any other as well. Fit is great - just remember to adjust size depending on whether layers will be worn under or not. Best part - low cost.
Got this for my lady friend and she absolutely loves it. She can wear it walking around town on a rainy day while staying bone dry and looking very fashionable at the same time...although I'm unfamiliar with the word, her friends call it "cute." She can also wear it hiking/walking on a breezy day without overheating because it breathes quite well. I know she's just as excited to layer up and throw it over top to hit the slopes. I can't imagine this thing would have any trouble keeping the snow and chill out as long as you have some nice thermals underneath. Overall, it's practical, functional and it looks great...taped/sealed seams and zippers make this thing unstoppable.
