Stoic Monolith - my best softshell
I have acquired a lot of softshells over the years and have not been really excited about any of them. They were not very warm or worked well in only a specific range of conditons.The Monolith works great as a casual jacket( Warm) and has proven to be a great ski shell too. I have worn it on days that turned out to be colder and winder then i anticipated and stayed warm. The tall collar and long, tapered sleeves keep the cold out. And the material and welded seams really keep out the wind.I would differ on those saying it is baggy. I got a Medium. I am 5'10 155. It is a bit loose around the chest, but that allows room for a good mid layer. I would say the arms and waist are more of an athletic fit.
Nice material, baggy
The material and workmanship is great, welded seams appeared perfect. Orange on black looks cool.Fit is not athletic, which is fine for some but didn't work for me. In fact it's way baggy.
Stoic Monolith Softshell - Men's
Gave this as a gift for my nephew who attends school in VA. He loves the fit, texture, durability, and looks (it's all about the look)....does Stoic make a jacket like this for gals?...I must say it was a HUGE hit at Christmas..Pat
