Initial Thoughts on the Stio Women’s Exploit Hooded Jacket

The Women’s Exploit Hooded Jacket is the perfect shell to take on adventures. Packable, ultralight, waterproof, windproof, and breathable, it’s an essential addition to your kit. Featuring Gore-Tex’s Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise, I feel confident heading out on the trails with this in my bag. It’s kept me dry on rainy bicycle commutes and has been the perfect windbreaker for early spring mountain biking.

Pros Cons
  • super lightweight and packable
  • the logo placement on the front is quite bold, which I don’t love
  • minimalist design
  • no side pockets
