Stio Gannett Peak Hooded Jacket 2017-2018
Designing and testing products in the heart of the Tetons, Jackson Hole-based Stio knows how to create apparel that you’ll want to hold onto for seasons to-come, including the Gannett Peak Hooded mid-layer. Constructed from a wicking, heathered polyester fleece with Karuishi stitching—meant to strengthen the fabric without adding weight—the result is a notably lightweight and durable layer ideal for fall hiking or mountain biking, mid-winter layering or a spring ski tour. An elastic band around the hood keeps it in place when you need extra protection from the elements and two, large mesh pockets have ample space to hold a small water bottle, snacks for the day-trek, etc. Bottom line, this lightweight hoodie will fit seamlessly underneath your shell for comfortable layering, yet it performs well enough on its own to use as a daily driver when active outdoors in chilly conditions.
