Description

An easy-breathing anorak with mountainous warmth.

You set fire to the skin track and beat your touring buddies to the summit. Bust out the Stoic Men's Hadron Down Anorak and hunker down with the warmth of 850-fill goose down while you wait. Pull the insulated hood over your head and let the elastic wrist gaiters keep chilly drafts from creeping up your sleeves until the group arrives. Highly-packable Pertex Quantum shell fabric allows this jacket to stash easily inside your pack (packs down to the size of a water bottle) and makes it extra-breathable so you'll feel comfortable, not stifled, beneath this warm, mountain-bred anorak.

  • Kangaroo pocket gives you a place to tuck your hands without fumbling around with zippers
  • Pack this jacket into the pocket in order to make an alpine pillow when you're cold-weather camping

NICE

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love how compact this will stuff down too in its own pocket. It is a great layer to have in the backpack for evemergencies. Isn't a pad pillow too!

Value warmth

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

Light, warm, packs relativity small, can be used as a pillow and your hands will thank you for getting the kangaroo pocket while others are wearing gloves and blowing on their hand to stay warm. So far it seem durable even with heavy use.

It's Perfect!

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

I always wanted a Patagonia, but when I saw this thing come on sale last year I couldn't justify paying the extra money for the Patagonia and I'm glad I didn't!
The waist cinch and the tight wrists are a huge bonus. Packs up super tiny, great for a warmth layer between climbs or during breaks while ski touring.
Not a bad word to say about this jacket!

Oh man, this thing is sweeeet.

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

For context, I live on Baffin Island, and this is my Summer coat. It has answered the call for a light down hoody. It's light as a feather, packs down to the size of a thick PB&J, cuts the wind with aplomb, and even handles a bit of misty drizzle. The wrist cuffs are almost tight enough to cut off some blood flow (no drafts creeping in...ever), but the kangaroo pocket is well positioned and folding your hands together inside couldn't be warmer. Waist cinch is great, and the size is spot on; the L fits my 6'2" 175lbs frame perfectly with an athletic cut and just enough room to comfortably add a layer under or over. Sleeve length fits 34-35". I have the Midnight/Agave and colors are as pictured. At first I thought the snaps would let the breeze in but they don't and they let you lose some heat if needed. The hood is fine, think loose scuba. Overall, solid build quality and I couldn't be happier. I throw my MH Chockstone over it for a ultra light, warm combo with added wind and rain protection. You could do the same with any UL shell.

Bottom line - Looking for a killer light down hoody? Look no further.

Near Perfect

  • Fit: True to size

Living in Northern New England I think I know what cold it. I use this with a shell with skiing and have never been cold. Stoic makes excellent gear for much cheaper than other big name companies. Look no further and pick up this jacket.

Awesome Down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I did some research and a lot of comparing before I bought this down. I've had it over a year now and have not been disappointed at all. On my scale my medium weighs 7oz which is the same as an empty Nalgene. I bring it on almost all overnight trips in the Cascades. In winter it works great for layering/belays but is usually too warm for any athletic activity especially with the hood up. It easily fits into Sea to Summit's 2L dry bag for clipping to your harness. The pertex quantum fabric sheds liquids quite well and is quite strong for it's weight. I thought the lack of a zipper might be a drawback, but with the buttons unsnapped it easily pulls over with a helmet on. Perhaps not as stylish as other brands but it's pretty high on lightweight function.

I discovered you can stuff it into the chest pocket. I'm not sure if it was intended to be able to do that or not, but it works!

Of course it was! :)

Light and warm

I'm a jacket whore but it HAS to have a hood. I've been eyeing the Hadron Cardigan, but couldn't bring myself to buy it because it didn't have a hood. Needless to say I got super excited when I say this one!
It's warm and compacts pretty small and will be an excellent jacket to stuff in my drysack while canyoneering. I also found out that is is sort of reversible!

Responded on

When you say "sort of reversible," how do you mean? Is it just as warm that way? The blue inside certainly looks nicer than the yellow-green outside!

Responded on

It's "sort of reversible" because it's essentially the same on the inside as out. There are two major differences
1) if it's reversed, your kangaroo pocket is now on the inside, you don't get two.
2) the inside chest pocket is now outside. The stitching on it is not finished like it would be for an external pocket - (think front pocket on your jeans) but it's not really noticeable.

It's totally functional either way, but the finished details make it only "sort of reversible" in an aesthetic way.

After Gila Wilderness

So, a few weeks ago I had the privilege to go into the Gila backcountry for a week. I took only this jacket on the trip for warm weather gear. The weather at night (the coldest part of the day of course) got down to the mid 20s. It was a bit chilly but was not unbearable. Near the fire it was great. So, what I found was that this jacket would be great in mid 30s to 40s, getting into the 50s it is un-needed. I hope this review helps you folks get a little jist of this jacket. Also, in addition, I did rip the jacket on a branch, so it isn't as tear proof.

Extremely packable and warm for camp use

I wore a synthetic puffy while hiking during the day (moisture was a constant on the AT in February), but immediately switched to this in camp. It is amazingly warm for its weight and bulk - shake it out of the stuff sack and you're good to go. I was initially turned off by the very tight wrist-sleeves, and even put tennis balls in them to try to stretch the elastic, but in the field they weren't uncomfortable, just very snug. A velcro or snap closure would be a good addition, though. Nice roomy hood...I'm 73", 175 lb, and XL fit well.

Like it

I was looking for a lightweight but warm jacket, and this jacket has met my expectations. I'm 6'5, 170lbs, and got the xl to make sure the sleves would be long enough, which they are. It's not baggie on me, and there is plenty of room for layers and movement. A large would probably have fit too even in the sleves. The cuffs felt very thight at first, but they either streched or I got used to them and are not an issue now.

Roche'd Into Hadrons!!!

In the fall of '12 nearly two dozen hammockers met at Big South Fork for a 4 day outing. Roche (in the classic grey color) had one. We all were smitten (by the Hadron) and had to have one!

When many of those alumni met again in the winter of '13 at Savage Gulf nearly a half dozen had been Roche'd!

In this shot, Spamburgler, Roche, Ftroop, Poof & Medicine Man. (Emcee was sporting one also, but he was four miles ahead looking for his Ti tool...

It remains to be seen if several of the rookies from this trip will be Roche'd into their own Hadrons...???

Light and Warm

This pull over is a great under your shell for those cold days on the mountain. It's even better for touring, since it is super light and stuffs down really small to fit in your pack.

Fantastic

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

I wear this jacket almost every day. So far I have used it on several backpacking trips, hikes, climbs, and late-night green tea sessions on the back porch ;) . On the first backpacking trip it got below -10 degrees, and I felt very comfortable with only a very light sweater underneath. The cut of the arms and chest is perfect - kept me wonderfully toasty while bouldering and climbing - without riding up or exposing my back and sides to the breeze.

It breathes well and will keep you super warm if you cinch down the waist and the hood. On top of all this, it looks great just wearing it around town (have had several compliments so far) and weighs almost nothing!
If you want it to be water resistant, buy a bottle of nikwax and throw it in the wash.

This is one of the cheapest down hoodies I could find, and I couldn't be happier - get this coat!

Ugly-And Warm and Light

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ok, I won't lie to you, I bought the Parpika/Midnight color, and it's so bright you could signal the Forestry Service, though they might not pick you up due to the weird tint of orange you are wearing.

But...this has a comparable amount of down as a Western Mountaineering puffy, has less drafts due to no zipper, and has a hood, which in my opinion is a necessity for almost no additional weight.

Did I mention it packs down to next to nothing and ways only 7.9 oz?

Buy it. Be warm. I wore this around camp with a light base layer a few times in the low teens, was warm enough.

Just layer it under something (like the superb Alpha SL by Arc'teryx) because this thing isn't winning any fashion awards.
