Today, we’re reviewing the Environ XT jacket and bibs by Stio, designed to help you take on the elements in style.
Let’s start with the jacket. The Environ XT jacket is made with 3L PeakProof™ membrane, which is both waterproof and breathable. The fabric is soft and supple, making it comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, and it moves with you, allowing for a full range of motion.
The jacket also features a helmet-compatible hood that’s adjustable, as well as an adjustable hem and cuffs, so you can customize the fit to your liking. The zippers are all waterproof, which is a nice touch, and there are plenty of pockets, including a chest pocket, two hand pockets, and a sleeve pocket for your ski pass.
One unique feature of this kit is that it is also eco-friendly, made with 100% recycled polyester, which is great for the environment. And it looks great, too, with a modern design and a variety of color options. Seriously, we have gotten an unusual amount of compliments with this kit, as we’re sure you will find as well.hell
“PeakProof™ 3L Waterproof/Breathable, 100% Recycled Polyester 150 Denier Face Fabric, PeakProof™ Membrane 20,000mm Waterproofness, 10,000 g/m2/24hrs Breathability, 20 Denier Tricot Backer, 194 g/m2, 80/20 DWR Finish” – Stio
Moving on to the bibs. The Environ XT bibs are made with the same 3L PeakProof™ membrane as the jacket, so they’re just as waterproof and breathable. The bibs have a high waist and adjustable suspenders, so you can get the perfect fit, and the zippers are all waterproof as well.
The bibs have plenty of pockets, including two zippered hand pockets and a zippered thigh pocket. There are also reinforced cuffs to protect against wear and tear, and there are ventilation zips on the sides to help regulate your temperature on the skin tracks or bootpack.
The bibs are also eco-friendly, made with the same 100% recycled polyester as the jacket. And like the jacket, the bibs look great, with a modern design and a variety of color options.
Overall, we were very impressed with the Environ XT jacket and bibs by Stio. The attention to detail is top-notch, with features like waterproof zippers and a built-in RECCO® reflector. And the eco-friendly materials are a nice touch as well.
But what really stands out is the performance. The 3L PeakProof™ membrane is both waterproof and breathable, and the soft and supple fabric is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. The bibs are especially impressive, with a high waist and adjustable suspenders for a perfect snug fit.
If you’re looking for high-quality ski gear that looks great and performs even better, the Environ XT jacket and bibs by Stio are definitely worth considering. We highly recommend them.
