The Stoic Vaporshell is a pretty good jacket with a few problems.
The first problem I found right off the bat was that the rubber tabs on the cuffs do not stick to the velcro at all, so I ended up cutting them off, which was no big deal.
Another problem I've run into is that one cuff hole is significantly smaller than the other making it pretty difficult to get my right hand out of the jacket. This I'm sure isn't the case with all of the jackets. I measured to make sure it wasn't my hand that's huge!
It's also a little tight to get in and out of. You have to unzipper the torso zipper to let some slack out.
Other than that its a pretty solid jacket. It's pretty tough and won't rip when your going through thorn bushes or get it snagged on branches. It's been great shedding rain and keeps you nice and dry. It also doesn't get clammy which is nice on warmer days.
Overall I like this jacket and for the price it's a good deal. Just needs some tweaks.
