Love it

Great jacket. Perfect for an insulated layer under your favorite ski shell or just as a stylish insulated jacket. The thing that I like most is that it is very simple. Two side pockets, one chest pocket, and a zipper. It packs down very tight and is incredibly light. I keep this in my backcountry bag year round and when it gets cold out it keeps me warm. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

I was thinking of ordering this or the...

I was thinking of ordering this or the Hoody... which would you all recommend? I know the hood would be useful in colder weather, however, I am fearful it will just get in the way when I don't need it. Any thoughts?

Go for the hood man. It can be a bit of hassle when layering - that much is admitted. However, it certainly is clutch when its cold!

Responded on

If you are in need of a insulated layer that can be worn both under a shell and regularly then I would go without the hood. I just hate wearing two hooded jackets at the same time. I have the non hooded version and it works great as an extra layer for those cold days but it can also be great just on it's own. Just depends on how you plan to use it.

Very nice

I really like this jacket. WARNING - ORDER A SIZE UP unless you want a very form fitting jacket. The jacket is really warm. Perfect for walking around campus.

Terrible Jacket

Fell apart right out of the box! The zipper broke, as did the bottom hem cord. The bottom cord just snapped when i tried to tight it. Unbelieveable! What sucks the most is that i live in Canada and really doesn't pay to send it back! Can't wait until B.C opens up there canadian website/Warehouse next year!

Warm Layer

I am 6'1 185, got the large. Great fit for my long arms also nice athletic fit around the shoulders. I was pleasantly surprised as to how warm this jacket really is. This also packs up real tight as well. I highly recommend it.

Great product

Picked this up not to long ago. I love it! It is extremely lightweight yet provides all of the insulating that I need. I love the way Stoic's products fit. I'm 6'1" 200#s and the large fits me great. The arms are a good length. I have long arms and they hit me really well. Short enough that it fits under a shell, but long enough that I can wear it by itself and it doesn't look like I have my younger brothers jacket on. I wore this for a couple of spring days too by itelsf and it was good. Got a little warm on the 50 degree day, but kept the wind out. The only thing I would change is to allow the pocket to zip when the jacket is stuffed in the pocket.

I got this because I wanted another layering option for under my ski jacket. I thoufht that the luft down would be a little bit too warm. This is perfect for what I wanted. It isn't as warm as the luft down, or my Mtn Hardwear Monkey, but does block the wind pretty well. I'm about 5'9", 165 lbs and the medium fits me very well.

Don't even leave the house with it on!

Like many reviewers I was excited to get this in the mail but once I got it and wore it for a modest 2 days around the house as testing, the filling and seams started busting out. The fit was perfect, it's athletic cut and I'm a pretty skinny guy. I never wore it with a backback on or went on a running marathon, I just sat with it zipped up and walked around the house. My problem is that the sleeves are way longer than I expected and I had to roll them up. If I was going to keep this item I'd take the sleeves to a tailor, I would have no problem with adjusting the sleeves. The really big issue is that to fix a busted seam on this jacket at a tailor in NYC would cost 2-3 dollars per seam, which seems crazy given the amount that the luft sweater already costs. It's warm and it looks nice but the quality can use a lot of work, the seams and filling just aren't cutting it, they're not up to scratch, literally or figuratively speaking. The collar is a bit weak, it doesn't really stay up too well and the chin guard isn't too fantastic either. I don't know much about stoic, I've ordered something else from stoic aka backcountry's house brand and I'll report back if it's just the luft sweater or if all stoic products are just not up to par. Never mind snowboarding or skiing with the luft sweater on, I'm worried to even leave the house with it on!

Great thermal layer

I am a huge fan of synthetic "down" as a cold weather thermal layer. I bought this for winter cycling (down to -30C) to wear under a barrier layer cycling jacket. I have only been able to ride for 2 hours at -10C but this jacket out performed my previous set-up. I perspired as usual but didn't get the chills at the end of the ride thanks to synthetic downs ability to insulate when wet.

I have a TNF primaloft jacket but it is cut too short for cycling. This sweater is longer through the torso and sleeves so it fits perfectly.

Stoic has also provided more features than any other product I have looked at. 4 pockets including an inside Napoleon pocket. Support for MP3/Phone wiring. The inner cuff is unique and works really well.

I have worn it 6 times and washed it once with no sign of the seam problems reported here.

Any ideas when you guys will get more Black...

I love the Luft. I only needed it and a soft shell and it was able to withstand anything I threw at it - from rain to 35 below windchill at the top of Okemo Mountain. It looks good, a whole lot better than a fleece because everyone has a fleece these days and it functions really well.

nice warm sweater, not very durable

I'm in the same boat as slcmatt--I really like the sweater, but concerned about it's durability. I've had the sweater for 3 months and have been wearing it casually. It's definitely great at keeping me warm into the 40's with a t-shirt underneath. I wore this as my insulating layer when I was in Denver and it kept me nice & toasty on the slopes. Problem is that I started noticing that the fill is coming/pilling out. Some of the seams are also coming undone as well. If this keeps up I will have to look for another insulating layer and wear this casually.

I am 5'8 180, sizing is always difficult, I am a large in the shoulders all day, medium in arms in torso. This Sweater in large fits me perfect. The cut is great, little length in the back which works perfect. Love the tight seal on the wrists.

I was in search of an insulated shell, glad I decided to go with this sweater. I wear this over a smartwool base, IceBreaker 320 mid, then an ArcTeryx Theta shell on top. If I get a little warm, I just hit the pits on the shell. The Loft Sweater, with the proper shell on top of it is the answer for Eastern chairlifts. No bulk, so you don't feel like a fat guy.

By itself, looks tight (that means dope) by itself. I was at Smuggler's (some of the slowest chairs around) a few weeks back on a Tuesday, after a unseasonal Monday of downpours, not expecting any precipitation or coldness, I only wore my Smartwool base and the Stoic. Morning was mild at the base, was warm, as hit other peaks, got raw and cold, as long as I was moving I was good, as soon as the sun hits the Stoic, the black just soaks it in. By afternoon it was dumping wet flakes, Stoic kept me dry and comfortable.

I recommend to all.

Not as durable as one would hope.

Let me first say, I love how this sweater fits. 6' 160lbs and the medium fits like it was cut for me. It is surprisingly warm and incredibly light.

Unfortunately, the stitching at the wrists, and random seams is coming loose. In addition to this, some of the fill is coming out through some of the seams.

I would love to give this sweater five stars, but I'm a bit worried it won't make it through the rest of this winter season, let alone the next.

Great layer piece.

This is the first of two Stoic jackets I've gotten (I've also the Stoic Insulateed Bombshell) - the technical specs are great, but what I like most about is the fit, which, obviously, is rather subjective. I'm 6'4" and 195 lb, with a long wingspan. It's been my bane to find anything with long enough sleeves (36-37") because apparently the only tall people in the US are rather, um, less than petite. To solve the sleeve issue - the few mfrs that make sleeves long enough (Marmot, Mountain Equip. Coop in Canada, Mountain Hardwear, to a lesser degree, and Ibex), results in a bit of extra material around the chest and waist, which may be fine in most circumstances, but tends to really bunch up once I put on a pack.

Enter, Stoic. It definitely is a more athletic fit. The XL sleeves fit perfectly and because of the tapered mid-section I am not swimming in it. Without question the best fit of any jacket I've ever owned. For that reason alone - as if the tech specs weren't enough - I'll keep buying Stoic products. (PLEASE! Don't change your pattern!)

The jacket itself is light, compresses easily to toss in your pack, and definitely warm for the weight. A winner all around.

Awesome Jacket, very impressed.

Very pleased with this jacket, my only gripe is that I bought it here then saw it on S&C for substantially less. I also only gave it 4 stars because for 5 stars it would have to be absolutely perfect, maybe some gore-tex would be nice. Overall the jacket is very warm, and comfortable. I would advise to size up, at first I ordered a med. and it was snug, so I returned it (with no problem at all, has great customer service) and got a large instead. I'm 6'1" and 170 lbs.

Unfortunatly it will fall apart

Well, despite the warnings I bought this hoping it would last- I wore it every day for a couple weeks plus a ski day and a hut trip. the seams around the cuffs and various stitches on the chest are definitely fraying. This jacket will fall apart on you, its just a matter of time and use. Other than that I love the thing. 5'11 160, athletic, the Med is a little snug in the shoulders (I have wide shoulders), form fitting, and the sleeves are delightfully long. Very warm and light for its weight. With the AT sidewinder shell I am good into the single digits on the chairlifts. Bummer that I now have to keep it in the closet for special occasions for fear that it will disintegrate within a month of regular use. @ 50% off its not a complete loss...but DO NOT expect any durability with this puffy. buyer be warned.
