Goes well with cold temps.
The Stoic Men's Down Jacket provides sleek style and toasty warmth that you can take from New York City to Boulder. Crafted with a buttery soft nylon shell, this full-zip jacket forgoes the stuffed-turkey look in favor of low-profile, lightweight down insulation and a streamlined design. Two zippered hand pockets keep necessities close by and the elastic cuff and hem keep the cold from sneaking its way through. Plus, it includes a stuff sack for compact storage when hiking, camping, or traveling.
- Clean and classic down jacket with low-profile look

Nice Jacket/Great price
Gave as a gift. Purchased the XXL, for 6'4" 230, fit perfect.
does the job
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: XL
I was looking for a down piece that I could wear underneath a shell for snowboarding. This is perfect for that use. I agree with the previous review that the fit does get wider towards the torso and I do wish the jacket had a drawcord at the waist. The jacket is super light and is really very warm. It is perfectly suited for the job I need it for, but may not be for everyone.
What you'd expect for the price
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I guess I let myself believe that I'd be getting a hell of a deal on this jacket and that because it was Backcountry's own brand, the lower price was attributable to the elimination of the middleman. Unfortunately, this proved that adage that you get what you pay for.
First the good: the jacket is decently warm and very light. The green color is just as it appears in the photo.
The bad: the fit is weird. Despite being marketed as having a slim line, it gets wider as you go down the torso, making you look very fat. Nothing like the form-fitting Patagonia down sweater. The fact that there is no drawcord at the waist only exacerbates this problem.
Also the seams in the sleeve are rough and scratchy, making it uncomfortable if you're wearing a T-shirt underneath.
I wanted to like this jacket, but unfortunately I'll be returning it.
What is the fill of this jacket?? I have searched and searched everywhere but can't find any info about either of the stoic down jackets... Please Help!!
