Had a chance to attend the Backbone Media Showroom in NYC again this year. Lots of great brands were represented, but I was most impressed with the Stio line of outdoor apparel, which was new to me. Spent some time with their reps, who walked me through some of the differences in the construction and materials they use for their outdoor wear. Here are a few shots I took of some Stio’s offerings:
This is the Buckhorn Bonded Flannel Shirt. It is bonded flannel with a microfleece lining. Definitely feels like a good all around outdoor shirt.
The Vescent Soft Shell Jacket with microfleece is both warm and highly wind-resistant. Good for running, hiking or fishing.
This is probably my favorite, the Kirby Windshirt. It’s light and has snaps instead of buttons, which I prefer. It also has an interior stash pocket for keys, phone or a small fly box. I put in a request for a flyfishing version with extra pockets and tabs for holding rolled-up sleeves.
Many thanks to the team at Backbone Media for the invitation!
Hope your getting into some of this great fall fishing.
