Dylan Hallwrote a review of Stoic Vaporshell Jacket - Men's on March 21, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I bought this jacket three years ago for working in NC during the summers as a rock climbing instructor. When I received it, the seams and welds were fantastic, it was a great quality jacket. It handled the torrential rain that Pisgah Natl. Forest put down on us. The factory waterproofing held up for about two years and then gave way to leaks. After the three year mark, the welds and seam tape have started to disapear due to strenuous use. It's a shame, because this is a durable, affordable rain shell. My main zipper just recently broke on it closing the tail end of three years of ownership.
Overall, I wish they still offered STOIC gear, I would have bought another exact one of these.
Pros: durable, affordable, great packability, good factory waterproofing and color.
Cons: wrist velcro wears out, rain shell only (does not insulate well), no longer sold.
