San Francisco's Mission Workshop has taken a foray into the apparel market with a pair of bike jackets to help keep you comfortable regardless the weather. Originally revealed at Interbike, the Orion waterproof jacket is finally now available for order.
The Orion jacket is a slim fitting, seam-sealed waterproof breathable shell. Design features include an internal iPod pocket, external cell phone pocket, front zippered hand pockets and a touring style rear zippered pocket. A removable snap off hood gives you extra protection in really foul weather.
The bike jacket is made from Schoeller's c_change fabric, which responds to temperature changes both inside the jacket and out. During activity, the structure of the c_change membrane opens as your body moisture levels rise, letting heat escape to the outside air. During periods of inactivity, the membrane structure condenses, retaining heat directly to your body.
Mission Workshop has previously teamed up with partners, such as DZR Shoes to create the Rondel SPD Sneaker, and now sells Outlier Tailored apparel in their San Francisco store. Could Outlier be the design team behind the Orion waterproof and Bosun merino wool bike jackets?
The Mission Workshop Orion jacket comes in black and olive colors and retails for $400.
