Having the right gear is an essential component of having an enjoyable trip into the backcountry. The Stio Snotel Jacket proved worthy when I tested it on a powder day at Teton Pass. This jacket was designed by Stio with the backcountry traveler in mind.

Stio Snowtel Jacket Review

There were a couple of attributes that caught my attention as soon as I put it on. The Stio Snotel jacket is incredibly lightweight, perhaps the lightest jacket I have ever worn. This is a definite plus for all those skiers and riders looking to shed weight and go as light as possible. It felt like I was wearing air. Once I started hiking, I noticed how well the jacket moved with my body. The stretchy softshell fabric made it super comfortable and unrestricted. A lot more enjoyable than the hardshell jackets I typically wear.

The Snotel is a simple no-frills jacket with chest and hand pockets, YKK waterproof zippers, pit zips, and an oversized hood. You won’t find a powder skirt or wrist gauntlets, but hey, who needs those? Performance-wise this jacket was more than impressive. Breathable, waterproof, and stretchy. The Toray™ Dermizax® EV 3L fabric transfers heat and moisture effortlessly while hiking or skinning.

This year’s Men’s Snotel Jacket ($355.00) is a must-have for any backcountry traveler looking to stay dry and comfortable! If you’re looking for a lightweight and high-performance jacket, the Stio Snotel is a great option.

Stio makes a bunch of great snowboard jackets.  Another great one is the new Raymer Jacket  Learn how the two jackets compare in our Stio Raymer Jacket Review.
