Paige's Bio

I'm not an alcoholic, I just like to drink in my free time. By the way, I have a lot of free time.

I've only used my jacket a few times but so far I love it! You could probably jump into a pool and come out dry in this jacket. Great for highly aerobic activities (I use it for snowshoeing and winter hiking), especially if it's snowing. The fit is amazing. Just big enough to allow some layers and not be restricting, but also fitted enough to look good and not be baggy and in the way. I am 5'5'' 130lbs and I got a medium.
So far no complaints, if anything changes I will update.
Things to be aware of:
- The sleeves are narrow, so you can't put much bulky layering under it.
- The hood is not removable.
- The color really is that bright.
- This is mostly just a shell, the fleece lining is not thick.
EDIT: I have been using this for a few months now including XC skiing, winter and spring hiking, winter cycling, and running. It has been amazing in everything that has come along. This is my first item from Stoic and they have earned a customer for life.

After snowshoeing once with my friend last year I decided it was my new favorite thing and needed snowshoes. I bought these and have loved everything about them. The bindings are easy to use and adjust and hold my boots very well, even in several feet of powder. They're super light so they're easy to strap on to a pack if needed. I thought they were going to be a little small for really deep powder but I did several hikes in fresh Utah stuff and never had a problem, they were awesome. Great traction. Hardly even know they're on your feet. Having used crappy snowshoes in the past, I definitely recommend splurging on these if you're going to do it regularly at all.
Love love love.

Ultralight is not an exageration. I am always surprised at how lightweight they are when I put them on, and hiking in the pow is a hundred times less work. Pretty uncomfortable though until you get them heat molded, then still they are not too comfy. The heal holds included with the boots are hard to place right where they should go, and don't still well. I didn't even use mine.
