Gear Review

3 5

Good but lacking

I really like this jacket for a couple of reasons. For one it is very warm and for two it is very light. That said, it has a big flaw for me, the elastic cuffs at the wrist are too tight and the stretch material itself feels like sandpaper against my skin. It seems like it should have been nixed in favor of a softer stretchier fabric. I am 6' and 170lbs so maybe a large would have fit better in the wrist but the medium is perfect everywhere else. So, as with all gear that is uncomfortable for me, it goes in the loaner/girlfriend bin. Stoic was really close to making a perfect jacket.

I agree with this reviewer that an elastic cuff using the same quantum pertex, smoother material would be preferable and that the current cuff is too tight. Overall, still a great garment.

Yes, the cuffs are too tight, but I am really HOPING it helps keep me warm through the night on the Badger Mountain 100. 35-40 degrees at night... wonder if I need something warmer?
