Great fit, questionable waterproofing

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

I'm 6' 165-175lb with +1" arm span, and a lean build.
Medium fit perfect for Spring through Fall hiking and day-trip paddling in Vancouver and the Rockies (WCT, Howe Sound/Indian Arm, Waterton, Jasper).
My only complaint is the material would wet out quickly. I don't think there was ever any soak through, but breathability disappeared.

Actually, another complaint would be it looks too good because a stranger decided to borrow it at a tournament last Fall. =\

6' 220lbs barrel chested. Will an XL fit...

6' 220lbs barrel chested. Will an XL fit me or will I need a XXL. I want to be able to throw a down puffy under it for touring/mountaineering.

Responded on

Without actually having a look at you I would suggest an XXL if you are planning to layer under this most of the time.

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket has worked great for me through one west coast rain season, the water seems to bead right off. I use it while I walk around town and on my daily bike commute when it rains. I haven't really put it through any trying situations. I'm 5'9", ~160 lbs with a zero ape index and the medium fits great minus the arms. The arms are a little long but the velcro sleeve straps fix that problem. It fits and looks great over a shirt or flannel, and I still can fit it over my Patagonia nano puff.

Great piece of kit!!!

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

Used this jacket on my summer trip to Ireland. Worked super during heavy rainstorms and worked well as a wind breaker. Breathability was good also, aided greatly by well placed pit zips and full front zipper. Fleece around the neck and at the top of the zipper was a nice feature. The jacket packs down small for carrying in pack or luggage on plane. Styling is well done making it useful for both trail and in the city. Thanks Backcountry for a great product!!!

Good jacket for the money

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 5'9'' and about 150 lbs, medium fit OK, a little tight in the armpits.

Pro's:
-Cost
-Fits under a harness well
-Can raise arms above your head to swing axes without having the cuffs pull on your wrists
-Helmet compatible hood
Cons:
-Had a ripped cuff velcro thing after ~15 days of ice climbing/ hiking
-Doesn't feel good to hike in, the armpits are to tight

Great Jacket

Backcountry will often put Stoic gear on sale so if you watch for it, you can get these for a great price. For under $150, you can't beat it. It will keep you dry and looks awesome. It has all the basic features you'd expect from this type of jacket . Packs down relatively small and light.

I'm 6'3" and 170 lbs and the large seems to be a good fit. The length is great. The torso is slightly baggy but it's great for layering (which is probably what you'll be doing with this shell).

Nice Jacket, Nice Price!

I usually wear a large in most other brand's jackets. I ordered the green shell in XL and it fits really well. I am 5'9", 200 lbs. I tried it on with an Under Armour Cold Gear shirt and a North Face Denali Fleece and it fits really well.

The hood is perfect and fits over a ski helmet with no problems whatsoever; which is awesome for snowy or rainy days! I have to wait and see how waterproof it is. Otherwise, I am very happy with the purchase. It does fit on the tighter side, so order a size up - unless you are super skinny. The sleeves are long, but it does not matter much.

It would be hard to fit more than 1 heavy fleece and 1 or 2 long sleeve baselayers, but that's all a shell is used for anyway. I put it on over an insulated jacket to see if it fits over and it does. I just looked like a marshmallow though lol.

It's very soft and not too loud either like other gore-tex type shells, so that's cool. It could fit into a backpack extremely easily as it is super light. The inside pocket is super small by the way.

I am using it this weekend, so I will post back on how it holds up in 28-35 degree weather.

I'm 6'3 and 170lbs. Would a large fit me...

Posted on

I'm 6'3 and 170lbs. Would a large fit me at all or would it be super baggy?

Responded on

I'm 6'2" and 160lbs. I bought a large thinking I would like the extra room for layering, but in reality I wish I went with the medium instead. The length is great, but the coat is too baggy in the mid section. Large might fit you better, but go for a medium if you want a trim fit.

Hello, my height is 5,7 and my weight is 165lbs, i wear the medium size? Thank you.

Responded on

Hey Alejandro, Yup definitely go with the Medium size.My Fiance is 5ft 7inches and 160 lbs and he wears a Medium in Stoic Jackets. Small is just a little to fitted for his taste, especially if you plan to layer underneath the jacket.

Overall very nice jacket

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

I ordered the Stoic first in an XL based on the sizing chart but found it to be bigger than expected and exchanged for a large. Fit is better other than the sleeves are long. Otherwise jacket is comfortable shell and has room put layers underneath. Hard to beat for the cost

Excellent Lightweight Shell

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

I use this jacket as my outer wind/wet layer for alpine skiing in nearly all conditions (depending on other layers for warmth). It's great for this purpose. Sleeves are long and can be cinched tight to stay put under gauntlet gloves. Body length is perfect for me (6' 0"). Collar/hood combo zips high around neck to seal out wind or moisture. Hood fits over most helmets if desired. Jacket is very simple (few pockets, no do-dads) so if you like "tech", look elsewhere. Fit is slim/athletic.

Great Value Shell

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

Well I've taken this shell out a couple of times now so here's my take. For the price, it's a great piece to have in your pack. It has the essentials and nothing more which for me is pit zips, a hood, and two pockets in the front. The fit seals the deal. I'm 6'5" and 205lbs so I have a tall athletic build. The XL fits my arms length nicely and the torso is cut for length rather than girth so I don't have a sails worth of fabric in my mid section like some brands. Anyways, the no frills nature means it nice and light and I can go into the backcountry with a base layer, a down sweater, and this shell in the pack in case wind/weather moves in. I've taken it touring a few times and it's been great; waterproof, wind resistant, easy venting and the hood fits over my helmet fine. I also use this in bounds too and it's held up great there as well. It even takes the abuse of brushing against GS gates at race speed. In summary: killer shell for the value, why pay more for pata-gucci or others when this guy does the job and does it well. (Picture: me in the green Stash hanging with Mr. Plake. not the greatest pic, but Glen Plake)

So far so good

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I haven't spent a ton of time in this coat yet. A lot of users have commented on fit, so I'll post that right now and save for a fuller review later.
I normally wear a Large jacket, in most brands. I prefer a baggy fit. I ordered the XL based on other reviews and it fits well although I was expecting / hoping for a bit more room. I do think the XXL would have been ridiculously huge, so the XL was the right pick.
And for the price, I couldn't think of a better coat.

Amazing Value

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

I saw this jacket highlighted in Backpacker Magazine's 2012 Gear Guide as a '4 Season Bargain' shell, where they said it's a bargain at the full retail price, which is about half the price of the other comparable shells. Shortly after I came across another very favorable review in the August 2012 issue of Urban Climber magazine, so as a review-junky I had to buy it. This jacket is very lightweight, seems to be highly breathable, solid zippers on the pockets & pit zips, and a steal at it's current sale price. Also, the fabric as a slight stretch to it that I love & the fit of size Large is perfect for my 6'0" slender build. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone needing a top of the line shell at a ridiculously low price.

Nice and light, small sizing

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

This is a nice, fairly basic shell. Not a ton of pockets, but enough to carry whatever you need.
I really like how lightweight it is. Takes up minimal room in a pack.
I have two complaints with this jacket. The velcro wrist closures are not sewn on very well. I accidentally ripped one off. I've been more careful with new one I exchanged it for. Also, the sizing is a little funny. I am 5'10 155 lbs, usually wear a size large jacket. I started with an XL Stash Shell, and exchanged it for a XXL. Even with the XL, I found that if I bent over to adjust my boot, my lower back would be exposed. XXL fits nicely.

Impressive jacket for the money. Slim fit and long arms make it a better fit for use while climbing etc...
Definitely recomend it.

Awsome Jacket!

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

I love this jacket! Cut and material are Excellent; very water proof yet good breathability, hood fits very well and doesn't fall over your eyes like others, arm length is just right, zippers run smoothly, pit zips help keep you cool on warmer outings. The sides are cut slightly baggy so when you raise your arms all the way up you don't pull up the bottom of the jacket and this took a little getting used to because it can create some lumps under your arm, don't notice it at all anymore though. The only thing I would change about this jacket is I would add another zipper pull to the pit zips. I had another jacket before that had this and it was nice to be able to open the pits from the top or bottom and also open them both to the middle to keep the opening from gaping too much. All in all, an excellent jacket that I would highly recommend.

This is THE jacket.

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

So I'd be the first to admit I'm a huge fan of Stoic stuff. Most of my gear is Stoic purchased from SAC, and I credit its low price and awesomeness with really building my interests in trying new activities and pushing my limits. This is an incredible shell. It is my go to jacket for anything other than a winter storm (bombshell takes over here) and stays in my backpack 24/7. At first I was worried about durability, as the jacket is so light, but going on a year of everyday wear from the trails to the city and on the wall, and it still looks new. I couldn't be happier. Throwing it in the dryer for 15 mins seems to bring back the DWR to about 90% and even when dirty, this jacket never leaks. Breathability is incredible, and thanks to the pit zips, I've never had an issue. Used some of my savings on Stoic products to buy an Arcteryx Atom LT that comes with me in the spring and fall. Togheter I feel unstoppable in rain and wind, even a bit of snow. Every detail on this jackit is really well put together, from the slight taper on the cuffs to the lining inside the collar. I'd buy another in a heartbeat for $80, just to have one as a backup in case they're ever discontinued. Fits great with a harness on, and the hood is cut just right. BC knocked it out of the park on this one.
