Mission Workshop's latest jacket marks a couple for firsts for the company and even a first for technical outerwear in general. The jacket is the first garment to use PrimaLoft Golf with Cross Core, an insulation technology that uses Aerogel, which is considered to be one of the lightest materials on the planet and is said to have a warmth-to-weight ratio that is 52% higher than standard PrimaLoft Gold.
The jacket's exterior is custom made for them by Mectex M.I.S. in Italy and features four-way stretch and next-generation, Dynamic Durable Water Repellent technology (D.DWR for short) that is designed to last twice as long as traditional DWR finishes and was originally designed for the Olympic swimmers to reduce the absorption of water weight during competition.
Inside, the jacket is fully lined with 37.5, a textile that delivers moisture management and breathability and can reduce overheating when the wearer becomes more active or when the material detects a rise in ambient temperature. Designed to be a versatile piece to be worn through Spring, Fall, and Winter, the jacket is designed for temperatures from 20°F (-7°C) to 55°F (13°C).
