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.”

Mission Workshop’s new VX-21 lightweight backpacks look amazing. I love the multicam and hunter / safety orange. It’s like Mission Workshop can see into my mind!

“The R6 Field Pack allows for the secure and simple attachment of weatherproof accessories to the exterior of the bag. The patented Arkiv® modular system gives the bag freedom to evolve and adapt as needed. With an arsenal of accessories to choose from the R6 series is ready to travel.

The VX-21 collection of R6 backpacks and accessories utilize a lightweight 210 denier packcloth reinforced with a ripstop nylon grid all backed with a PET waterproof membrane. In addition, these packs are lined with a lightweight urethane coated ripstop liner.

Mission Workshop: LUCID – On the Road with TYCHO

I don’t know how many of you are into TYCHO but I’m stoked on how this project with Mission Workshop turned out:

“Mission Workshop and FILTER Magazine went on tour with San Francisco band Tycho, to capture the life of touring musicians. At first glance, it can seem wildly glamorous: Late nights, different cities, fans that adore you…But look a little deeper and you’ll see that the reality of life on the road is very much to the contrary. Though there are good times to be had, the majority of a touring musician’s life is spent in transition. Transition from city to city, venue to venue, and hotel to hotel. Mission Workshop documented a set of shows just prior to the 2014 Awake tour with Filter Magazine and created a photo collection called Lucid.”

View LUCID at Mission Workshop and check out that 40-page book they printed too!
