Initial Thoughts on the Stio Women’s CFS Hooded Anorak

The CFS Hooded Anorak from stio is a new favorite for all of my sunny weather adventures both on the water and trail. I have been loving this breathable, bright layer that provides much needed sun protection with a 50+ UPF rating. The zippered front pouch is great for securing small valuables (keys, phone, credit cards, etc) and also serves as a stuff sack when you need to peel it off and pack it away.
Pros Cons
  • The hood is great for extra sun coverage when needed
  • Could be a smidge longer, I am just shy of 5′ 4″ and found myself looking for just a little more length at times
  • Comfortable, loose fit with a drawstring at the waist to further adjust the fit
  • The sleeves are a little bit long and baggy on me, but I prefer a loose fit so it’s ok for my style preference
