Mission Workshop aims to create gear that is “as tough as it is beautiful,” and the Eiger WX Jacket exemplifies this goal perfectly. To guarantee the jacket will withstand almost anything, the San Francisco-based company has teamed up with Halley Stevensons, a manufacturer that has been creating waxed cotton fabrics at their “Baltic Works” factory since 1864. Initially developed for Scottish fishermen who had to work in challenging weather conditions, the fabric is used here to lend urban outerwear impressive ruggedness and durability. Minimalist and refined, Eiger WX is inspired by the classic silhouette of the M65 parka, featuring clean lines and a perfect fit. The outer shell fabric is manufactured in Dundee, Scotland; weatherproof, breathable and durable, it also boasts a dark olive color to complement any fall outfits. The jacket is made in Vancouver, Canada, and comes with a comfortable quick-drying nylon lining, a 3-point adjustable hood, custom Italian RiRi snaps, several pockets for essentials, and a label of authenticity from Halley Stevensons. Designed to adapt to temperatures, the waxed fabric softens as the sun shines, for more breathability, and becomes tougher in the cold rain to offer optimum protection, making Eiger WX a perfect choice for bracing the upcoming fall weather. The outer waxed canvas is meant to age over time and gain a patina full of character; the owner can also easily re-proof the outer layer when needed. Mission Workshop offers a lifetime guarantee for the jacket, ensuring that it will become the ‘go-to’ fall outerwear item for many stylish urban dwellers. Photo credits: Mission Workshop.
