Stoic eVent Stash - Hard Shell: Reviews

Simple Security

Talk to any jacket designer and he'll tell you the same thing: The more pockets and doodads a waterproof jacket has, the more seams it requires, and thus the more opportunities water has to seep through. That's why the Stash, part of online gear retailer Backcountry.com's new house-brand line of apparel, keeps things simple—to stay true to its primary purpose and keep water out. Cut from top-shelf waterproof-breathable eVent fabric, this pared-down storm shell has all the features you need—a few pockets and an easily adjustable, full-coverage, helmet-compatible hood—and none that you don't. The other upside to the minimalist design: The Stash weighs just 14 ounces, so it's a great summer hiking and backpacking shell. 14 oz; stoicgear.com
