Stio – a Jackson Hole based company – is entering the run/hike market with a solid casual short called the Second Light short. This short is a comfortable and light option constructed of Meridian ripstop nylon. Durable and light, the Second Light features a standard running brief and simple features with pockets.
While the inseam in longer then most runners preference, we found this a perfect hiker short, causal run option or an awesome around town piece. Running to the gym longer is awkward in the 3″ inseam shorts, grab the Second Light and be at peace.
Paired with the Second Light Jacket, this now becomes a full arsenal option. The jacket is built with the same amazing Meridian ripstop nylon, is amazingly comfortable and looks exceptionally great. The light weight and numerous features seemed to balance in at only 5 oz. Stio included 20 denier fabric, a great hood, elastic hems and semi-locking zippers.
We found it in our packs for those occasional runs with the impending weather, on cold morning runs to the gym and in the pack on the way to the concerts. At only 5 oz and extremely comfortable, we consider this jacket a keeper.
