Mission Workshop: the Sector Merino Crew Neck

A few good merino crew necks are staples in anyone’s wardrobe. I’ve been wearing a sample of this shirt for about three years. It’s become a favorite shirt for riding, traveling and day to day wear.

The Sector is Mission Workshop’s 18.9 micron 190g/sm Australian Merino Wool crew neck and to give it an extra strong resilience, they spun nylon into the weave. Made in San Francisco and in stock now at Mission Workshop.

Mission Workshop’s New and Improved Bosun Merino Jacket
bosun_cutout

The Bosun was one of Mission’s favorite jackets and so when a relaunch was in order, they took the time for a little fine-tuning the tailoring. They updated the jacket to include a removable hood with zippered front hand warmer pockets, as well as cleaning up the fit. The new and improved Bosun Merino Jacket is constructed using 380 GSM Australian Merino wool that is spun with 2% lycra to increase stretch and durability. Wear it alone or layered with a rain jacket. Made in the USA, in limited quantities and shipping mid-February. See more at Mission Workshop.

Nodes

This looks amazing!

“Trails can’t be measured on a universal scale. There doesn’t exist a comparison of flow to stoke that equates to a universal metric — no ‘trail spectator’ out of 100, no simple charts or graphs. Rather, the experience of the trail, as related to euphoria, is a continuous collection of multitudes extending in all dimensions. There are too many variables to include in the equation, and a limit to the math. It takes a special cultivated knowledge of proximal landscapes to understand and create the right experience. And to maximize this experience it’s not just about finding amazing trails, but the process of linking landscapes through a vast network of natural terrain.”

Ash Smith sums it up best:

“Yes, you’re looking for awesome trails, but you’re also looking — on a bigger scale — for corridors of flow, through this network of nodes and edges. Through this network which we’ve been blessed with from the agricultural past and trading past. It’s all there; we just need to find the best ways through it.”
