Stio is an outdoor apparel and softgoods brand based in Wyoming. Their location in Jackson Hole gives them plenty of opportunity to test the gear they produce, and when a representative reached out to us to chat about gear, our interest was piqued. Stio recently released their new fall collection, and looking it over we found 5 picks that stood out.
Men’s Hometown Down Hooded Vest
I’ve been obsessed with insulated anything since moving back to the northwest, and the Hometown Down Hooded Vest features goose down, a DWR water repellent coating and a HOOD. Sign me up. $185.
Men’s Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt
Is it a shirt or is it a jacket? Maybe a little of both, the Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt mixes synthetic insulation with casual wear looks.
Skycrest Insulated Snap Shirt: $159

Merino wool is amazing stuff. It keeps you warm even when its wet and is naturally odor resistant. It’s not always the most durable, so merino blends are like the Polartec Power Dry blend of wool and polyester add polyester to add moisture wicking qualities that also add durability and comfort. Wool underwear is expensive but when you’re traveling with limited space, its worth any penny.
Women’s Modis Hooded Jacket
It’s already snowing at the mountain, and even with a favorable forecast, a waterproof, breathable shell like the Modis jacket is now mandatory on rides in the mountains.
Women’s Basis Power Dry Hoodie
There’s ride wear, and then there’s apres ride wear. The Basis Power Dry Hoodie features Polartec Power Dry, a poly-wool hybrid fabric that features the best of both materials that will blow away the comfort and performance of the garden variety cotton hoodie.
