Stio’s Men’s Hiking Gear 

Stio is a great outdoor apparel company. Founded in Jackson Hole, Stio has builded itself off inspiration from the long days spent outside. From the days on the local rivers, hikes and runs through the trails, and reaching the Teton summits, Stio is made for the outdoors. Every single piece of apparel made by Stio is intended for both epic alpine pursuits and the quieter moments of mountain life we enjoy so much. 

Their gear is designed to be high-quality and versatile, made with technical materials and manufacturing practices to ensure every piece meets these standards. Like some of the best companies in the industry, Stio finds itself with a strong obligation to care for the environment. All of their apparel is made with Bluesign ® approved textiles to be sure that their manufacturing has a minimal impact on the environment. Outside of their standard business practices, Stio advocates locally and nationally for conservation and sustainability. 

Another way Stio acts on their obligation to improve the outdoors industry, they make an effort to make the outdoors more equitable to enjoy. Getting outside is one of the best things you can do for your body and soul. Stio works with local and national communities to help enable access to the outdoors for all people regardless of their race, gender, background or ability.
