One of the founders of Cloudveil recently launched Stio, a brand with a similar spirit (Jackson, Wyoming-based, designed for climbers and skiers—and cracking beers back in town). The Origins Hoody has become a tester favorite. Polartec’s Wind Pro fabric sheds wind and light precip, and it’s treated with “Hardface Technology,” a surface treatment that enhances durability. “It’s no hogwash, either,” notes one tester. “After three months of cragging, it looks as good as new. No pilling, no abrasions, no stretching out. You get technical performance without looking overly teched out.”
