Favorite jacket in the closet

I own several Stoic jackets but this one is my favorite. The overall quality of the jacket is very high and the fit is perfect. I have a small and am about 5'6'' and 120 lbs. It is perfect for layering or just wearing around town. I love the welding on the pockets.

Is there gonna to have a men's version?...

Is there gonna to have a men's version? thanks

Great Fit and warm Jacket!

I know people said enough about this jacket, but it's seriously a great jacket. Soft, warm and all of the above! And it looks great and contemporary compare to North Face or Mountain Hardware. No girl design either (thank god!). I'm 5' and 112 lbs, bought XS and wear it in L.A. Use it for cycling, snowboarding, hiking and walking around. It's my go to jacket.

FIT: Athletic fit(Just like pictures above). I think this is what makes Breaker Fleece Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt different from other jackets. They fit good. Not boxy. Just simple, cool fitted jacket. XS fits me perfect. It looks like I don't have any extra space (in a good way), but when it's cold, I can put my Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket-XS underneath without feeling tight or hard to move. Not boxy at all and no funky flare of women's jackets.

SNOWBOARDING (used in Tahoe too): For 50F sunny weather, I wear this and a layer under and works pretty good. I don't get steamy, if I get little warm, I open up the front main zip. And when it's cold, I wear this under the shell, and I'm good to go!

CYCLING AND HIKING: I wear them in the begging of the activity, but I usually get pretty warm. So for more intense activity, this jacket might not be that great unless it's really cold and you won't get steamy.

WATER-RESISTANT: I took this jacket to Malibu foggy + light rain hike and I was totally dry. You will get wet if it's really raining.
WIND-RESISTANT: Pretty good if it's not so windy. But when it's strong wind, you will definitely feel it.

I LOVE this jacket. I hope other companies make this type of jackets fit like Breaker Fleece Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt.

they love it

got one for my mom and another for my lady about a year ago and they wear them all of the time. i wish i had purchased one for myself before the size i needed was sold out. this jacket has great construction and is perfect for layering or just to keep the wind off on a chilly day. would recommend this jacket for anyone who prefers a quality garment.

It just doesn't get any better

For it's weight, it's very warm. It's soft and comfortable to wear. It's wind and rain RESISTANT. It has a very flattering cut--you don't look like the bag lady in some fellas sloppy jacket. It also seems to repel dog hair. The only possible negative that I can find is it's only available in black so I cannot justify buying another one--yet (put it on a great sale, I'll be there). I love the comfort of fleece but so much of it is simply ugly and it's a dog hair magnet. This Stoic piece combines fleece comfort with great functionality. It's great for layering as it's not bulky so it fit well under a shell for winter. I've had mine for nearly a year and it still looks great even with heavy wear. It's a bit longer in the back (great on a bike) and the sleeves are longish but easily push up and stay in place.

Love it!

This is my spring/summer go-to jacket. It's very comfortable and I love the detailing-purple zippers, and a inside chest-pocket!The tag recommends it be washed wtih Nikwax to help keep it water repellant. I used Nikwax once and it seems to keep the rain off. I'm not sure it it is totally necessary, though.

Will you be getting any more of these in?...

Hi there,

I'm 5'10" but a size 4 ~ just wondering which size for my frame would be appropriate for the sleeves and overall length. Thanks!

Awesome Jacket

I gave this as a Christmas present to my wife and she wore it almost everyday. It's thick, warm, and has great wind protection. The hood is nice and oversized so it keeps her head warm. The fit is slimming and the sleeves are a little longer. All in all, a great jacket.

Lives up to the reviews

Love, love, LOVE this jacket. At an athletic 5"5', 131 lbs, I generally average a size 6-8 in jackets and a 4 in pants. I sized up to a medium in order to facilitate layering for backcountry skiing and because I tend to have issues with sizing jackets over my well developed shoulders. The cut and fit on this is superb - the dolman sleeve gives ample room in the shoulders/armpit area, the princess seamed waist skims down to the hip and the extra high, zip up neck ensures that drafts won't chill your neck. Stoic has somehow made this jacket both roomy AND body conscious. The super-stretchy softshell is faced with an extra-soft fleecing inside. I had my doubts that something this stretchy could be truly windproof, but this jacket has become my go-to for journeys in the Jeep with the top down on cool evenings. Super warm, breathable and comfortable- I get compliments EVERY time I wear it.

Flattering Fit - EXTRA warm.

This hoodie is extremely warm - as warm as my Arcteryx softshell but not as windproof. There’s no layer of fabric behind the front zipper, so you risk that metal touching your skin if your base layers leave anything exposed…it also allows a little bit of air through. The fit is v. feminine. I have large shoulders (wear a suit jacket size 6) and a lean waist (pant size 4 or 26”/27”) – the hoodie fits my shoulders and cuts in to show off my waist…not that that’s important when you’re hiking…but it doesn’t hurt ;-)

Excellent Hoodie!

I absolutely love this hoodie! I'm 5'7" 125 lbs. and the small fit perfect with a little room(but not too much so it didn't look boxy or stuffed) It has a flattering shape to it. Really warm and sooooooooo soft! It makes me wonder ...what was I thinking when I ever bought a North Face Denali! That thing's super boxy not at all flattering, scratchy feel to it, and not even close to warm compared to this Stoic hoodie!!!That's not even mentioning the wind- which this one gives a bit of wind resistance too. LOVE IT!!!!

Stoic Breaker Fleece

I bought this in a size large, (I am 5'11 and usually have to wear a men's medium to get the sleeve and torso length needed - ie ArcTeryx women's large is too short in both areas), and it fits great! I've worn it as a daily jacket and as a layering piece for skiing, and it's a really great piece! The fabric is really cool too, fleece with a hard face, warm yet breathable.

Love the jacket

This is one of my favorite pieces - it's more of a softshell with fuzzy inside. I'm 5'7", 128 lbs and the small fits well - if you want it more as a layering piece. If purchasing as an outer layer I would've ordered the medium. It's a flattering princess cut and I get compliments whenever wearing it. It makes a great layer to tour in (skinning up), although would want a warmer outerlayer for skiing down (in colder temps).

Sweet Coat

Love this jacket. Great cut, great material, great hood. I got this in exchange for the backcountry shift jacket and this one is definitely warmer. I'm 5'5" and 115 - got a small and I like the room it offers me.

How roomy is the size S on you? I am about the same size but is torn between size xs or s?

Best Hoody Ever

'nuff said, but I'll add: this fleece helps cut the wind and water, both. Wind stays out, and light rain/snow beads. But hey, don't confuse this sweatshirt with a windproof/waterproof shell. If it really blows, you'll feel it, and if it really rains, you'll get wet. It's still a sweatshirt, just a really nice one.

If I am between size per the size chart, should I size up or size down? I like a more fitted look.

If between sizes, I'd suggest sizing up.
