Now I’m not one to normall geek out over technical wear, but as an ongoing effort to create high-end Advanced Project Series garment, Mission Workshop announced the Eiger Waterproof Field Jacket.
“The Eiger is our take on the classic military field jacket updated with all the modern advantages of technical outerwear, and the first apparel release in the Advanced Projects Series.
The Eiger is constructed from Swiss-made Schoeller c_change™ fabric which utilizes a heat reactive, waterproof-breathable membrane to regulate body temperature and comfort. The addition of wool-facing on the exterior of the Eiger shell creates a tailored outward appearance while the waterproof membrane provides complete protection from rain, wind, and snow. Full seam taping and a three-point adjustable hood ensure that you’ll stay dry when the storm rolls in.
True to its heritage, this field jacket is equipped with the traditional four-pocket front and is modernized with two internal media pockets, and a large cycling-style rear stowage compartment.
Made in Vancouver, British Columbia.”
This retails for $695, the pricepoint of high-end tech wear because it is just that and damn, does it look nice.
