Description

The superlative do it all shell.

Lightweight storm shelter and hyper climate-controller, the Stoic eVent Stash Shell stands up to Mother Nature’s nastiest without weighing you down. Barely noticeable in your pack as a just-in-case option, the eVent Stash Shell tags along anytime and any season you see clouds on the horizon. Stoic’s 3-D ergonomic fit ensures maximum mobility minus the feel-like-a-sail-in-the-wind factor, cutting down on material on bulking up on dynamic fit. Pull up the fully-adjustable, helmet compatible hood when the storm hits, and say a quiet thanks the folks at eVent for making such an incredibly breathable, lightweight, yet totally weatherproof fabric.

Such a killer jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love this jacket. I used this is some real heavy rain in New York, and of course have used it in the rain and snow in Utah and it has never leaked or had any issues. I am 6' and about 160 lbs and the medium is just right. I typically like a longer cut but this does the job.

TO DIE FOR

I've had this jacket for over a year, and i've put it through the ringer. living in utah's ultimately %100 unpredictable weather i've worn it in blizzards with a hoodie underneath, and through downpour that makes showers look like a spring mist. this is the windbreaker/rainjacket to conquer all other rain jackets. also, looks awesome, fits amazing, and weighs nothing. i say buy it. i'm 135lbs and 5'9" the medium is my size.

Pretty good.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Definitely the best feature of this jacket is the breathability. The durability is very good for a jacket of this weight although don't expect a super bomber jacket (come on it weighs 13oz). What brings this down from five stars is that fit, for me at least it is a little tight on the shoulders especially if you have a layer or two underneath and I find the hood to be very tight with a helmet. Also the sleeves are starting to wet out but it's probably my fault for not restoring the DWR. I don't think I would have payed full price for this jacket simply because for this price there is better options out there. Take a look at some of the new Neoshell, DryQ and Active Shell jackets. Great review here http://coldthistle.blogspot.com/2011/10/shells-obvious-questions.html

best jacket!

I usually don't post product reviews, but I bought this jacket a few years ago in blue and I wear it everyday including for skiing, general rain etc .... It's been to europe, worn for long hiking trips, and it's super light and easily packable! The water eVent water proofing is better than any helly hansen, or Goretech jacket I've owned, and it hasn't ripped or had seal peal like on tons of my other shit -- definitely an awesome purchase for the price too!

5'10" and 125lbs, should i go for a small or medium. I'll definitely be layering but just like a light fleece or hoodie for winter

Hey Bryan, with out knowing your other specs, its hard to say but this jacket fits true to size per their sizing, so get what you normally wear and you should have plenty of room...

Responded on

I would say a medium. I'm 5'9" and 135, medium is a little long in sleeve for me.

Responded on

Bryan - I'd recommend the medium. The Stash eVent Shell uses eVent fabric, which by nature does not contain any stretch. The small would give you a snug fit, but if you're looking to layer something under, I'd size up to the medium to allow better freedom of movement.

Good, missing pit zips

I wish it had pit zips. They just provide enough added flexibility to dump heat. This prevents me from having to remove the jacket and put it back on over and over. Otherwise it's good stuff, never had welded seems before. Interested to see how it holds up. There are some nice touches though that i expected for the price- softer fleece back on the neck area, hood cinching for a good fit with or without a helmet etc. I'm not one to buy fancy shells. I like a cheap durable waterproof non-technical stuff. That said, i'm really excited to start using this and seeing how well it actually breaths and stuff.

And the winner is...

Overall a great jacket... Event material is an obvious no brainer, and the face fabric used by stoic is holding up well to abuse... its definitely not a heavy denier face fabric; so bush whacking and serious abrasion needs should choose a different product, but as a go-to rain/backpacking jacket, it does the job... I have the Stoic Vapor as well (see my review) but I like the Event material better... the 3L Vapor membrane has started to break down from use and packing and is just to breathable for a backpacking jacket (gets cold quick). This jacket weighs less, has multiple pockets, and a better hood. I prefer the forward "3D" arm approach of the Vapor over this one, the arms of the Vapor have a lot less seams (the Event has so many seams and different folds in the arms that you have to find the sweet spot when resting your arms on something flat or the seams bite your elbows/forearms) and the pit zips are nice... now if Stoic would combine the best of both these jackets, I think they would have a worthy competitor to any of the major Name Branded products out there...

Will you guys be getting any new colors...

Will you guys be getting any new colors this spring/summer? Or is black my only choice until the fall/winter line is released?

Cut slim

I imagine that the Stoic eVent rain shell would have performed just as it should have but unfortunately the cut was just a little too slim for me, even in size XL which was the largest size available.

Almost Perfect!!

I used this shell for skiing all winter, and occasionally for cycling in the rain. I'm 5'7", 130 lbs, and bought the medium.. it fits perfectly with an insulation layer underneath, or even just a sweatshirt. Super-breathable, and definitely waterproof. Hood fits well over a helmet, and can be cinched down without one. Pit zips would be nice.

Almost Perfect!!

Great light weight jacket

Bought the XL and it fits well - I'm 6' 195lbs. The arms seemed long, but in practice for backcountry skiing they proved to be great. eVent breathes really well for me. This is a light/thin jacket, which was what I was looking for, but unsure how much abuse it would take.

how tough is this thing? i do a lot of bushwhacking and i don't want it to tear when i'm fifty miles out in the ak backcountry. any thoughts?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey,

Unfortunately this is probably not the jacket for you. Definitely a low denier nylon outer that would not hold up to serious bushwhacking.

Responded on

I agree with JChap. I use the Outdoor Research Furio jacket for any bushwacking. It is a thicker more durable fabric.

Wanted to but can't Recommend

Rip is the right word. Loved the Stoic Shell until the right hand pocked ripped at the top of the ripper. No hard use just skiing. Also found the arms were really long.

not big enough!

I closely scrutinized the construction of this jacket when it arrived and would give it a 3 to 4 star rating even though I was unable to field test it. Torso and Arm length were great and allowed free movement without loss of coverage. There was ample storage in the voluminous pockets. Unfortunately I am an ex hockey and football player and have a broad chest and wide shoulders so even the XXL was unable to meet my needs. I am disappointed but went with a Marmot Aegis jacket at half the price which if the specs are correct should satisfy my requirements. Finally, I believe at the price for the stoic eVent jacket that others should take a leap and try this product out.

Responded on

What is your chest size, and what is the circumference of your torso/belly at its widest point? Did you get an XXL in the Aegis? If you're willing, height and weight?

Trying to decide between the XL and XXL. I'd rather have something a little tight in the belly than loose in the chest, so I usually try to find stuff with a regular fit in XL- a lot of the XXL athletic fits are definitely too big in the chest, and sometimes in the torso/belly. Fit varies so much, even within the same brand- can't even zip up the Marmot Mica in XL with a t-shirt on, but the Marmot Precip in XL is big enough for me to layer under! Trying to figure out where the Stash sits in this continuum.
