Jackson Hole-based Stio knows mountain town style. Here are four recently released products we find ourselves wearing weekly.
Downwater Anorak ($140)
I love the Downwater because it looks so distinctive and turns heads whenever I wear it. It has a laid-back style that goes great with jeans and even better with boardshorts, making it a versatile layer on the river or around town. Made from a rugged water-resistant nylon treated with UPF 50-plus sun protection, it fends off wind and water without making me look like I just climbed the Matterhorn.
Ralston Jacket ($160)
Every once and a while, I have to go to an event where my old, ripped puffy just won’t do. In those instances, I reach for the Ralston. The cotton canvas jacket features clean lines, patch pockets, and ranch-inspired metal snaps. It pairs perfectly with jeans and a button-down, and my girlfriend loves it. That’s good enough for me.
Alpha Alpine Pullover ($220)
Everyone should own a lightweight, throw-it-in-your-bag-and-forget-about-it jacket like the Alpha Alpine Pullover. The two-tone design looks good, the ripstop nylon is lightweight but durable, and the thin layer of Polartec Alpha insulation works wonders on cool summer evenings. The Alpha Alpine is simple, but it works really well. My only gripe is that I wish it had a hood.
Tipton Tech Henley ($70)
I’m a big fan of henleys but most of mine are cotton so they don’t work well in the woods or on the river. That’s why I love the Tipton, which is made from a cotton and polyester blend so it dries four times faster than traditional shirts but still feels like a normal cotton T. It’s become my go-to weekend shirt.
