clare.cayl990386wrote a review of Backcountry Stoic 2.0 Shell - Women's on November 4, 2009
The material is thick and strong, way more burly than I had expected.
The jacket is nice and waterproof and seems like it would perform in a variety of conditions. Skiing, touring, hiking, sitting in the rain, camping or anything else.
The cut is feminine and small. I'm 5'7" 115lbs and the small fits just perfectly. If I were any taller it would be too short. The arms are just long enough for me. The hood is well designed and comes right over my face to protect from wind and rain. Its cut like a gore-tex ski shell, but doesn't seem like it should be limited to just skiing. I intially bought it to be my around town/camping/hiking rain jacket as I already have an arcteryx shell for skiing. I might go ahead and use this one instead, as the cut of this one is less boxy and more flattering than my arcteryx beta AR.
