Warmth at the core and wind-resistant at the flanks.
Biting wind and weather might tug at your body heat on the way up the mountain, but the Stoic Men's Luft 60 Anorak fends off the cold weather with relative ease. Synthetic insulation provides warmth without bulkiness, lightweight shell and liner fabric keep this jacket highly packable, and wind-resistant side panels handle the business of repelling chilly breezes. This is a half-snap pullover you can wear alone when you're working up a sweat ascending or as an insulator when wet weather forces you to don your weatherproof shell.
- Polartec Wind Pro side panels block cold wind from stealing away your body heat
- 60-gram Cirrus synthetic insulation provides ample warmth, maintains its insulating properties even when wet, and compresses easily
- Pertex Quantum lining breathes away excess moisture so you feel comfortable even if you're working up a sweat
- 3-D Ergonomic Construction offers a fit that's close, while still allowing room for light layers underneath
- Hood gives your head additional protection against wind and weather
- Wrist gaiters provide extra protection from deep snow and frigid conditions
- Backcountry.com is the exclusive US distributor for Stoic products

light but not warm
wrist elastic is too tight, light but not too warm. Hood not very ergonomic, excellent price. I layered with vaporshell and powerstrech fleece in really cold days. Not bad in the wind.
2 stars overall but 3 consider the price
Great deal, good finish, minor issues
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I'm 6'0" 155, bought this as a light insulator for climbing possibly paired up with the vaporshell. The fit (med) is good, the anorak is paired down to the minimum which is great when hanging off the back of your harness.
+'s: Insulation to weight ratio, fit and finish.
-'s: wrist elastic is way to tight, (I'm thin wristed) but, there is plenty of elasticity and I'll stretch them out with a ball. The draw cord is pretty thin (will it last?). No pocket to stuff the jacket in, this thing would be perfect for my use with a stuff pocket.

Bought the XL (6'4 200lbs) and fits quite well, the wrist gaiters are rather tight though. That one aside- this jacket is incredibly warm for its weight (barely anything when your wearing it) and packs down to nothing. It's become my defacto jacket (it's a great layer underneath a storm shell in rainy situations to boot). It would have been a 5 if the wrist was just a wee bit looser.

I'm 6'4" and 200lbs with an athletic build. I'm waffling between getting the L or the XL, I'd lean L but if its slim the XL would be the better choice. So, is this jacket fairly slim in it's fit?
I'm 6'0" and 160lbs myself and if it were me I'd go with the Large for sure. For you I can see you definitely being at an XL in this jacket since it does have a more regular fit to it.
I ordered small. I'm 5'8" and athletic 160 lbs. Good fit. This jacket is very Light,packs easily, and can withstand some abuse. I wore it this January skiing at Brighton and Solitude in UT with only a long sleeve shirt underneath. My only complaint is that Stoic should make a full zip version. It does a good job blocking wind keeping me warm. It's a good product.

Pretty nice jacket, but beware the cuffs. They are tiny. They don't seem to get any larger as the size of the jacket goes up. Cuts off circulation to my hands...don't know if I can get it altered.
Also, if you're from Canada, don't bother with backcountry.com they will screw you on shipping and handling. 30$ to ship and an additional 60$ "handling" charges at my door. 90$ of shipping and handling on a product that I payed 70$ for. Just get something else.
If I threw a shell over this could I ski...
If I threw a shell over this could I ski a cold day? Could it take the place of a down?
You can defiantly use this an an insulation piece - however DOWN will always prevail in being the warmest insulation. This is synthetic and will keep you warm but depends on other variables, temp, wind and you as well... some people just can't stay warm - so there I would say stick with down.
