Testament to Backcountry return policy

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Vest seemed flat, poorly insulated. Tried it on and zipped it up. Zipper snagged the fabric, cutting the shell on first zip!!! Sent back. Refund was not a problem. Will not buy anymore Stoic products, no matter how on sale. That is not true. I am cheap. 90% off i would try it again.

I posted a review with a fix on this, but it seems backcountry.com deleted it. Just sew 2-4 lines parallel to the zipper all the way down. Check out the picture of the blue vest labeled "Mostly good. Bad zipper but easy to fix." If it wasn't so cheap at the time of purchase, I would have returned it and not bothered with fixing the zipper.

nevermind. My review was just buried in the past.
