Description

Worthy of the most devoted mountain pilgrims.

The undaunted Stoic Bombshell Jacket signs on for summit pushes, hut-to-hut tours, and anything between. Slightly stretchy, 3-layer Bombshell material offers shelter from ridgeline gales and whipping spin drift, while thumb-holed hand gaiters and a fully-adjustable hood ensure a complete seal from the elements. Fully-welded seams increase the Bombshell’s breathability over standard taped-seam shells and mesh-backed underarm vents banish excess body heat during long boot packs. The Stoic Bombshell’s internal pocket with headphone port begs for some musical accompaniment. Stoic’s 3-D ergonomic fit offers un-inhibited mobility without drowning you in excess fabric—if you tend to like a roomier fit, size up.

Consistent failure of Stoic Jackets

"Straight up sucks" isn't even sufficient to describe how I feel about the Stoic jackets that I have purchased. I bought Stoic jacket for me and my wife, since the price was so unbelievably good. The seams came unglued on the first Stoic jacket I purchased. Backcounty.com replaced it with another. The seams came unglued on my second jacket, and my wife's jacket. Backcountry.com replaced them both. Then, on my third jacket the zipper pull broke on one of the pockets. I thought I could just live with it, my then the zipper on the main jacket failed. Of course, Backcountry.com refunded my money without any hassles at all. I have given up on Stoic gear. Winter backcountry gear that fail could be fatal. Sure, it's not as bad as a parachute or climbing gear failing. But if I am standing on top of Mt. Superior in a white-out, my outerwear needs to be reliable.
Using the Stoic name instead of the Backcountry.com name was a good idea. You don't want the Stoic brand diminishing the Backcountry.com brand and name.

Yes..more of a heavier/tougher shell that some of the lighter weight shells out there. AYOI...add your own insulation...ie base layers, fleece, synthetic/down sweater/jacket, soft shell.

This jacket is an absolute steal at $79.99. The bombshell is super functional and the lime colorway looks dope.

Great Jacket Backcountry.com rocks

First of let me just say that backcountry.com has awesome customer service. I bought this jacket for $180 a while back and when it went on sale for $130 they reimbursed me for the difference, and in actual $$$ not store credit like a lot of other places do. In the past I have purchased things from this site even though some other site had it for a little cheaper because I know backcountry supports their customers better than any other place out there.
That being said let’s get to the jacket. I bought a large and it fits me (5’ 11’ 145 pounds) great. It’s got a little bagginess to it for style but still very functional, which is how I wanted it. I bought this because I needed a shell for touring and hot spring skiing conditions and it works great for that. I skied in very hot weather at mt.baker on the last day of the season and I stayed cool while still skiing hard. The waterproofing on this thing is top notch and I think the only way im ever going to get wet in this thing is if I were water skiing.
However I do have two issues with this jacket. First, there is no mesh in the pit zips like the product description says. I’m not sure if this is just my jacket or what the deal is, but I was a little bummed about that. Secondly, the wrist cuffs are pretty small and can it can be a little difficult to fit bulky gloves underneath them, but that’s not really a big deal. Despite both these this is a great jacket, especially considering the price. I would buy it again even if I knew about both of these flaws.

Big Disappointment

As a huge backcountry.com fan and former owner of a backcountry.com event jacket I was very excited to receive the bombshell. I asked a gear head what size I should get and they told me to buy an XL. I am 190lbs and 6’1 and the XL was huge so I exchanged it for a large. When I got the large I took it out to the slopes, I am a ski racer and avid backcountry skier. I was so disappointed. The backcountry.com jacket I had before outperformed this jacket in every aspect. This jacket was bulky and had a weird fit. Whenever I went fast the jacket bulked up around my neck forcing me to zip it up all the way past my chin. It also has a huge amount of loose space. I am not a small guy and as a ski racer I am forced to train weight train multiple times a week and I still found the arms to be gigantic. The extra material would flap back and forth while I was skiing. The zippers were also pretty cheap and jammed a lot. Don’t waste your money on this jacket, go on geartrade.com and buy a backcountry.com event shell and you will be completely satisfied. I went back and bought a used one from geartrade because that jacket was the best and they are the only website that has any in medium, large or xl. Just make sure to get the right size.

DOPE JACKET

I'd been passively searching for a tech/rain jacket I could use for backpacking and snowboarding for over 2 months for under $150. I was about to settle for some Smarmot rain jacket with taped seams and no lifetime warranty, then I found Stoic (never heard of the brand but didn't hesitate once I learned its made by backcountry.com).

Ordered a small (I'm 5'7" @ 135lbs), got it the other day and I'm pumped. The fit is exactly what one wants, not baggy like some teenage fashion whim, roomy where there needs to be room for essential layering (ie the arm pits where a couple layers will add bulk) and the construction is SOLID.

I'm stoked to test it in nasty weather, though backed by a lifetime guarantee and since its made by backcountry I'm not worried at all.

I especially like the high neck/chin guard and the wrist gaitors.

If I could make a couple suggestions...
I'd move the hand pockets a little higher so one can access them while wearing a pack.
I'd look for a lighter material if possible
and offer one more bright color, like orange.

All in all...
Awesomely incredible jacket Stoic/backcountry.com. Arcteryx quality at half the price. I've gotten many complements even from fashionista girls who think outdoorsy people have no taste.

I look forward to making more purchases and supporting the Stoic line from backcountry.com.
Keep up the good work!!!

REVIEW: Bombshell in Denver Post

Not only does Stoic's PR guy sport the Bombshell in the hills of Jackson Hole and dig it, the Denver Post says the jacket "has proved to be a functional addition to the outerwear world."Check it: http://www.denverpost.com/extremes/ci_14361874

Perfect shell/jacket

Just got done with an epic spring pow day up at Mt. Baker and this jacket totally killed it. With the welded seams I was able to stay warm and dry all day while charging hard. Great pit zips for excellent breathability when heading up the bootpack and the neoprene cuffs help keep out the moisture. I usually ski in Colorado where you don't have to worry about a lot of moisture but this jacket definitely passed the test on one of the wettest days I have ever skied.

Here's a pic of me in the shell, on a recent spring tour. I've worn it all season long at the resort and in the bc, and its held up pretty well. I'm most impressed with the waterproofing on it. I've been through some pretty bad storms in it, and have stayed very dry. The velco on the cuffs are starting to come off, but nothing some glue won't fix.

Just for reference, I'm 5'8", 160, and that's the large I'm wearing.

Is this jacket light enough to wear in the summer time hiking or is it strickly a fall/winter shell? Thanks.

Responded on

Stoic Bombshell Jacket was not intended to be a summer shell. Weight and features (wrist gaskets, snow skirt) make this a pretty snow-specific style.

If looking for a summer weight shell - try the Stoic eVent Shell. This shell was designed to be a more versatile (lighter weight, breathable) shell that can be worn solo for protection in summer storms.

Responded on

This is definitely a heavier shell. It would work just fine for a summer shell for those colder days but it doesn't pack down as much as some of the lighter shells out there.

Lives up to the Name

I actually own two of these jackets on in Lime and one in Espresso. The fabric has a nice feel to it, and can definitely stand up to any kind of abuse you throw at it. It breathes well, and repels all that cold smoke pow, so you stay dry. I have used this jacket for touring, skiing at the resort, and snowmobiling. Just layer appropriately and you'll be set. On to sizing, I am 5' 11" and weigh 180lbs. This jacket definitely has a technical fit, the waist is a bit high on it. For a more technical fit I would go with a Large(ie touring). For a baggier fit(snowmobiling/resort skiing) I went with an X-Large.

Bombshell

I really like this jacket a lot, but it could be better. First of all, I am 6' even, 190 lbs and got a large in black.

The things I like: the fit looks great although it is tight across my back and elbows when i bend them. Probably should have gone with a XL. Good hood, nice zippers (albeit the color), wrist gaiters, really burly fabric. Light for how strong the material seems. Really waterproof and the DWR is pretty good. Construction seems to be of great quality, but the draw cords need to be beefed up.

The things that bug me: For taller individuals, it isn't long enough. When I sit down to strap in my snowboard, my back/coin slot is immediately frozen and I don't sag or anything. The powderskirt is kind of tight and again not low enough. Also, if you use a pack, the pockets might not be high enough. Oh, and I've never used the arm pocket.

Overall, good jacket that could be great if a few changes were made.

Super tech, super tough.

I picked this shell up early this winter, and have been rockin' it almost everyday for the past few months.

Fit: I'm 145 lbs, 5' 10". The medium would be a good alpine climbing fit, but I prefer a larger fit for skiing so I can wear a puffy underneath, and stash skins inside the shell for descending on cold days. So, I went with a a large in the lime.

Durability: As an avalanche forecaster, I spend A LOT of time in my technical clothing. Days filled with snowmobiles tend to be hard on things, and this shell has held up nicely. I have thrashed through many a tight forest, and the shell has yet to see any tears. The waterproof zippers have a nice tight feel to them too.

Design: I like the pocket layout in this shell. There is an interior i-pod pocket that holds my iphone nicely. When at the resort I wire in my earbuds and the phone stays toasty & dry inside the shell. The large outer pocket is the perfect size for my write in the rain field book too. The smaller chest pocket often holds my GPS when I'm in the field.

Functionality: While I have a few other shells in my quiver, none of them have come out since getting the bombshell. It's plenty breathable with the pit zips open for the skin track on nasty days. The arm gaiters are awesome as I tend to wear inside the cuff gloves. It does a great job of keeping snow out when digging pits or even for the occasional fall.

Style: I'm constantly complemented on this jacket. The Lime is a super bright shade that is a photographers dream. For me, bright is right in the backcountry. I want to be as visible as possible when I'm in the mountains. The only downside of the color is that it tends to pick up dirt pretty easily. I found that some shout advanced gel and time in the wash brought the stains right out.

Overall, I'm super psyched on this shell. I have Arc'teryx pieces in my collection, but this one is my favorite. It's stylie, durable & uber functional. Certainly the best bang for the buck out there.

Super tech, super tough.
