So Light

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've picked up a couple Stoic brand items lately and if you can get the size right the quality and value is top notch. I was able to score the stash shell on Steepandcheap so i went for it in a size XL. I'm 6'4" 225 average build but tall. I usually wear an XL in almost every other brand but when I tried on the XL stoic shell it felt short and just a bit more form fitting than I prefer especially since I plan to use this for sierra splitboard missions with layers beneath if needed. Returned it for a XXL with ease and it fits great. I can layer underneath, it feels pretty tough and the water faucet waterproof test gets at A+. Also this thing is LIGHT and that's what I was looking for in a back country shell.
