We will not be getting any more Stoic gear in, as the brand is being discontinued, but check out our Backcountry.com branded gear, it is replacing the Stoic line and is of the same quality!
We will not be restocking the black colorway of this hat, sorry about that!

I never really cared about socks before I started working at Backcountry, but now I have been introduced to the world of fitted, cushioned, awesome socks. These things are great! They definitely feel like they hug my feet well, and don't slip around when I run. They are truly a no-show sock and sit low on the ankle.
Definitely need more, my washer and dryer are hungry for socks...
Another picture, but these skis are so pretty they deserve it.
Dropping into a foot of fresh at Snowbird!
We do not sell replacement pieces unfortunately, but I would hit up Garmont directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or use their store locator to find a retailer near you!

I love this thing! I ordered the Ice Water Cord/Gravel Heather colorway and the corduroy fabric is awesome, kind of old school.
I got a small and I am 5'8" and about 130 pounds. It's a great fit, I wear it over a sweatshirt all the time.
I unfortunately had to return these, I bought a size 8.0 and while I am normally an 8.0/8.5, these were just way to small.
They were very cool though, the removable liner is awesome and can be washed. They had some decent grip on the bottom as well, if you dare to venture outside.
Bummed we don't have a size 8.5/9.0, but I would recommend them!
I was looking for the most cushioned ski socks out there and landed on these socks. They have TONS of padding in all of the critical areas of the foot and have really helped to reduce the shin bang I feel at the end of every day. The socks have sturdy construction and I have witnessed no tearing while pulling them on or ripping them off every day and fully expect them to last through my entire season.
I bought this under layer suit for my lady friend who, no matter what I tried/purchased, had extreme difficulty staying warm on the mountain. After much research I landed on the Stoic Merino suit and I couldn't be happier. The Stoic suit fit true and the built in drawstrings around the waist made finer adjustments easy to perform. While the suit has not completely solved the issue of her fingers and toes getting cold it has SIGNIFICANTLY improved the amount of time she can spend shredding in between hot chocolate breaks.
You cannot go wrong with Spy sunglasses. The Helm's are yet another awesome offering in their lineup and accurately reflect Spy's signature style. It also doesn't hurt that they are Ken Block's signature model. My head is on the slightly larger side and my face is oval-like in shape and these fit well if not a little on the small side. I love the interchangeable earpieces for further customization on top of the huge range of colors already offered. All in all you can't go wrong with these shades.
Not much to say about the Coal Frena Beanie except that it is a good beanie, solidly constructed, has not lost its shape after many days of wear, and fits just as well under a helmet as it does walking down the street
Got the North Face Runners Glove not actually for running (though I have since used them for outdoor winter exercise) and they were a good purchase. Lightweight and breathable while still being warm enough for everyday use/chores. I primarily use them for warmth while walking to and from my car in the morning and at night. I have yet to test out the palm side key pocket due to the fact that taking my house key on and off my keyring is more of a pain than just taking the whole thing with me so I cannot testify to that feature but overall the gloves work great.
I am not usually one to wear technical layers other than my long underwear. Usually I have technical long underwear with a cheap long sleeve t-shirt or crew sweatshirt on top but the Stoic Merino top changed my antiquated layering habits. Previously I would have issues with the long sleeve T or sweatshirt saturating with sweat halfway through the ski day and then getting cold as the sun began to set. The Stoic Merino shirt, while not totally solving this problem, does work wonders in prolonging the amount of time before I am saturated by wicking the moisture away from my body. Another big plus is the finger holes in the sleeves which may be my favorite feature of the shirt (no more sleeve bunching!). Overall, a very good under layer shirt that works well in various conditions.
I had to return this to size down, I initially bought a medium (wanting it to be a little big) and just had to get a small. I am just over 5'7" and about 130 lbs but the medium was like a dress!
Besides that, it's a sweet hoodie. Soft material, does well in the washer, and keeps me warm. Everything I need!
The side mount is a great alternative to a direct over the head mount that, lets be honest, is getting pretty old. With this mount you can get a different angle that catches part of your face/goggle while still getting a good POV angle down the mountain.
As with any GoPro mount, you can get as creative as you want with it, so definitely a good buy!
Disclaimer... I haven't bought a new running/training shoe in years. I have been wearing the same pair of Nike Shox since I can remember and while they are actually in great shape and did their job, I wish I would have tried something else sooner. Enter the Wave Precision 12...
First of all, these things are LIGHT! At least relative to the Nike's. I noticed that right away and loved it. Secondly, the support I get in these is amazing, I truly feel like my foot is wrapped in the shoe, which was hard to get without lacing the Nike's down super tight. Finally, the 12 mm drop feels so much more natural while running then what I am assuming was a much more serious drop that the Shox had.
I only have about 13 miles in these so far, but I am blown away. Maybe its just because it's been years since I upgraded, but I don't care, these shoes are awesome!
This bag doesn't have a million bells and whistles, but it's got style! The padded laptop compartment is great for your computer or a tablet and the organizer pocket is good for those small things you don't want to lose. Besides that, it has room for your books and folders or a weekend's change of clothes.
For casual day-to-day use, this is my go to bag!
I am currently wearing this hoodie and I love it! It is super light weight, so don't buy it for the warmth, but the 50% polyester, 38% cotton, 12% rayon blend is super soft on your skin.
I bought a medium and I am roughly 5'7" and 130 pounds, it fits well, if not a little big, which I was going for.
