I picked this up the other day. I am getting into fly fishing. So far I have been very pleased with the reel and the price. From what I have read this has some of the same internal components as their $200 plus reels. Look forward to see how this hold up after a summer of use.

I just picked these up last week. So far I am impressed. They are super comfortable out of the box. I typically wear a 11.5 US in Salomons and Montrails. I went with a 45 in these and they fit great. They give me the room that is need for swelling if I am going to be hiking or trekking to the nearest climb. I look forward to write more once I have had them for a few months.

This is one of the coolest pieces Stoic has come out with. It is their best fitting piece yet. If you need something for a casual night out on the town or a piece to go down to the local crag this will work. It is super comfortable and stretchy. I am 6'3" 220lbs and went with an XL. It fits great. I will give the review an update after a few washings on how it is holding up. It is worth every penny.

Just picked this jacket up. I am 6'3" (225lbs) and went with an XL. It gives me room under to layer. I am going to use this mainly as a belay jacket so the little bit of room and long arms will be great. I also was very impressed with the detail they put in this jacket for under $185. The 2 hand pockets have a micro fleece lining with a cinch chord in the pockets. Look forward to putting it to the test.

I got these gloves the other week and love them. This is Stoic's best fitting glove yet in my opinion. Also for the price there isn't anything that comes close in a leather glove. As far as the fit I went with an XL and have average sized hands for a 6'3" guy. Look forward to seeing how they work through this winter season.

I got these in April 2011 and have been very pleased. I would have to say they have one of the best out of box fits out on the market. I personally haven't used them as a trail runner I have used as a light hiker and have put many miles on them. the traction is great and the TPU plate is very nice and haven't had any issues with rocks getting at my feet with pack weight. I feel very confident that I will be able to get at least another year out of them since they have held up so well. (I am normally between an 11 and 11.5 in other brands and went with an 11.5 in this shoe.

This is a super comfortable short. The brushed micro fleece lining in the waist sets these apart from other shorts on the market. The web belt also is a plus when you are wearing these day after day as your weight may fluctuate. I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for a quality pair of shorts. I am 6'3" 215lbs and normally wear a 34-36" waist and went with the XL
