There’s “lightweight” and then there’s LIGHTWEIGHT. I’ve held this jacket in my mortal hands and it is amazing…

“We got our hands on some special cuts of Polartec’s NeoShell® fabric in colors not typically found in the Mission Workshop line and made some limited editions of our classic Orion jacket. The Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format, and is made with 96 g/m2 Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement. Available for the first time in colors that will be noticed by everyone around you.”

Swoop up at Mission Workshop. Seriously, this is a worthy investment…

Mission Workshop: The Ultralight Orion Jacket
ultralight-orion-4

I’ve seen this in person and it’s awesome. In fact, I wish I had one with me this week for our ride. Here’s the scoop from MW:

“The Ultralight Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement.

The Orion is a fully-taped waterproof-breathable jacket designed for extreme wet conditions. Made with 96 g/m2 Polartec Neoshell® fabric. This highly breathable, waterproof fabric is engineered to react to changes in body temperature and activity levels, allowing more moisture and heat to escape as the intensity level increases. As a result, the Orion is the perfect waterproof jacket for an exceptionally wide range of environments and temperatures.

Features include: Pit zip underarm ventilation, external access chest pocket, internal ported media pocket, rear stow pocket, hand warmer pockets, and removable hood.

Jacket Weight: 370 grams (310 grams without hood)

Fabric Weight: 96 g/m2

Made in Vancouver, Canada.”
