Lightweight Insulated Parka

The Stoic Lightweight Insulated Parka features a soft, lightweight design that's warm and lofty, yet easily packable when you need to put it away. Built with a down-mimicking polyester fill, this fluffy parka will keep you warm on frosty winter days, and it won't loose its insulating properties if you encounter wet weather. Fitted cuff gaiters feature thumbholes to seal out the chill, and a mid-thigh length offers coverage and style when you're headed into town. Stoic equipped the Lightweight Insulated Parka with a toasty hood and three zippered pockets to stash your essentials.

  • Insulated parka for winter commutes and days in the city
  • Lofty synthetic fill offers lightweight, packable warmth
  • Mid-thigh length gives you coverage and urban style
  • Thumbhole-equipped gaiters keep your wrists warm and sleeves secure
  • Regular fit leaves room for layers and full mobility

Black Stoic Lightweight Parka

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

I’m normally a north face fan so when I saw this coat which looked like a good replica for less than 1/2 the price I was willing to try it. I love it! So far I’ve worn it several times over the last month and I am not disappointed. I’m 5’3” 145lbs 34B 28W 43H & I bought a size small. The coat hits me an inch or two longer than mid thigh, end of my fingertips, so it doesn’t look like I’m wearing the wrong size & I don’t look like a child. It’s fitted from top to bottom. Not too tight but extremely flattering. I can walk and sit comfortably without having to unzip it so it has good stretch but also retains its shape. It has 3 zipped pockets (two side & one chest) which are so useful because you don’t have to worry about something slipping out ie: phone, wallet, lip gloss, etc. I bought it in black and the lining is a burgundy color, didn’t think I would care but I actually like that too. It also has an attached inner bag to fold up and travel that lays flat along the back so it’s not even noticeable while wearing it. Pretty much the perfect mid-length, light-to-medium coat so I can get a few thin layers under it or wear a hoodie & sweatpants without looking awkward. I would say it’s perfect for cold but not freezing days, it’s not a 0° type of coat but you can probably get by most of the winter in this depending on where you live. I’m in NYC and do a ton of walking & I can handle something lightweight so I don’t burn up. But when it’s under 20° I definitely get my north face parka out. I absolutely recommend this coat!

Fits great and cute!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I’ve gotten many compliments on this jacket after owning it a month. It fits TTS - very flattering, even fits my “more broad than most women” shoulders AND my small waist. It will be a good transition into and out of winter... not the warmest coat, but I live in Minnesota so it won’t take me through the deep freeze temps we get!

Black Jacket Has Purple Lining

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

The fit & warmth is really good but wish the pictures would have shown the lining & hood is purple on the black jacket too. I could see in one of the pictures that the grey jacket had a purple lining but I was hoping to score a simple black down coat with this one and was a little put off by the purple inside once I received it. For the price, fit, & warmth, I’m going to keep it because you can’t have enough jackets in MN but other buyers take note!

Good Winter Jacket for the Price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

I ordered this jacket along with 2 others to determine which one was the perfect combination of warm and lightweight. I ended up keeping the Columbia Heavenly Long Hooded Jacket over this one, but it is also quite a bit more expensive. I felt this jacket is pretty warm and does well in cold weather, especially if you have layers on. The quality seems fine and it fits really well. I chose the Columbia jacket because it was a bit warmer on it's own than this and had some nicer touches like light fur lined hood and pockets. Again, I do think this is a good jacket if you don't want to spend the money for a Columbia.

Too snug

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I am 5'4, 125 lbs. and the small is too small on me. I always wear a size small so I was disappointed that I had to return this coat. A medium would be too large. This is the first time I have tried this brand and both items I ordered were a little snug on me. I guess it depends on the brands you are used to. I wear an XS from Lands End. I wish sizing was the same across the board. Oh well.

A puffer coat that’s actually flattering

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

And super, super warm especially for how light it is. It’s folds right into itself.

Great coat!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I love this coat and get many compliments. As great as the coat is, it's not as great as Back Country's customer service. The jacket arrived and fit well but after a couple of days, a hole opened up in the pocket. I called customer service and they immediately processed a return and shipped a new one out which I had in two days. No hassle, no issues. If only more companies valued customer service as much as this one does.

Must be Inconsistent Sizing

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

After reading the other reviews, i purchased a large, to leave room for layering. I am 5'8", 160 lbs, 38C. This jacket did NOT run small. It's huge; all over, but especially in the hips. The waist stitching is quite high on my long waist. The fabric is amazing, the quality is great. It is a gorgeous jacket, but i'm not sure even in a Med, the proportions will be right. Darn!

So impressed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I normally buy The North Face jackets but thought I would try backcountrys Stoic brand. The jacket is made beautifully. The first day it arrived, we had an ice storm and the very lightweight jacket was so much warmer than I expected. The color is so pretty and rich looking. Very impressed. I’ll definitely buy more Stoic products.

Light, Warm and Stylish!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

I searched and searched for a longer coat that I could wear with leggings and skinny jeans, yet would still have some style to it and be warm. I love this coat! I live in Minnesota, where it can get really cold. While this coat is really light, it actually is quite warm and has a great hood. With the style around the waist, it looks form-fitting and not frumpy. I think it runs true to size; some people may consider that small sizing, but for a petite woman, I love that I could find something online that would fit well and not leave lots of gaps. I really like that it features thumbholes and a nice hood, plus a fun dark fuchsia color on the inside of the coat. I am very pleased with my purchase!

Way small! - UPDATED

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

I was excited to love this coat doesn't fit. I bought the same size as the Stoic Kenai purchased last year. This style is at least 2 inches narrower in the bust than that and of the reversible vest (that also came today, which I love!)
Disappointed to have to return it.
UPDATE: Bryce in Customer Service was amazingly accommodating. I measured the Med I received and found it to actually be a SML cut. He offered a free return shipping label and processed a new order right away. The second MED was markedly better but still small. :(

Way small! - UPDATED

Light and Warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

I’ve worn it once on a very windy low 40s day (on the water) and it was so warm. The hood isn’t extra large and blocked the wind really well. I bought a small (sized down). I’ve lost two of the little pocket ties on the zippers.
Would love to get another set if they’re available.

size run small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: large

I normally wear a size 10 top and the large was too small.

For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
