Take your favorite burly flannel, add some micro fleece backer, some hand pockets and you got yourself a go to fall / winter flannel. That is exactly what Stio did with their new Buckhorn Jacket. We had a chance to test it out during some cool fall camping, early morning dog walks and relaxing around the cabin. The Buckhorn saw lots of use!
The flannel is 100% cotton bonded material on the outside. The inside is a 265gm polyester micro fleece for warmth and next to skin comfort. They added some classy Pertex Micro nylon paths to the elbows and fancy metal buttons (no plastic here!). Instead of the typical button down they opted for a zipper (we liked this). The fit is more relaxed than fitted. At first we found it a bit boxy, but that quickly was forgotten and we enjoyed using the jacket in all kinds of outdoor activities. Bar tacks make for strong seams. This would make a great cabin, after ski, chilling by the campfire, gathering fire wood, walking the dog and enjoying a beer kind of garment.
