Final Update – Stio Environ Pant

Review by Jason B

Final Update - Stio Environ Pant

Sunny day on the mountain

Winter came in like a lion and then sputtered and rain took the major form of precipitation instead of snow.  The lack of snow coupled with training for my first 100 mile ultra-marathon meant that the Stio Environ pants saw significant amounts of use for snowshoeing and hiking, but only one ski trip.  However, I have over 200 miles of hiking and snowshoeing in the pants so I feel I gave them a serious test.  The pants have performed admirably and are my new favorite waterproof pants to adventure in.  They have kept me dry, are durable and comfortable no matter what the conditions.  Read my review here.

Winter has arrived in Southeast Alaska – snow glorious snow.  Though at the beginning of my testing it was just rain.  I have used the Stio Environ pants for around 50 miles hiking and snowshoeing and the pants have performed well – shed precipitation, vented well, and kept me warm.  However, the length of the pants is still a challenge.  More details below.

Rain Jacket, Minus the Rain

STIO Environ rain jacket I received the STIO Women’s Environ jacket for review purposes.  Other than wearing a few times more as a wind breaker, I haven’t had many opportunities  to wear it. No rain, no real need for a rain jacket. We’ve hardly had any rain, and no snow yet at all.  The jacket has so many features though, that I have plenty to write about.  Check out the initial review HERE, and then check back in about a month for more thoughts on the jacket.  I’m sure our Maine weather will be cooperating by then….

Stio Environ Pant

I received the Environ Pants from Stio for this review.


I live in the rainforest of Southeast Alaska and one of the contributing factors that makes Southeast Alaska such a beautiful place is precipitation.  Precipitation takes two main forms – rain and snow.  This fall and winter, I will be testing the Stio Environ Pants in the best and worst that Southeast Alaska can offer in the way of precipitation and hopefully a sunny day or two.
