The North Sea off of the coast of Scotland is cold, windy, and unforgiving. Water temperatures get as low as 43 in the winter, and gale force winds and storms are more the norm than the exception. Despite all this, people have made a living fishing those waters for centuries. One of the companies that helped them do it is Halley Stevensons. Since 1864, the’ve been making waxed canvas jackets in their factory for fisherman – and now they’re teaming up with Mission Workshop for a new special edition of the Eiger Jacket.

While it may seem like an odd combination – a 150 year old Scottish company teaming up with a modern technical wear brand from San Francisco – the collaboration comes off perfectly. The Eiger jacket still retains a quick drying nylon lining for comfort and breathability, and a bevy of other technical features like a three pointed adjustable hood, custom Riri snaps, and custom YKK weatherproof zippers. These technical aspects combined with a tried and true waxed-canvas outer makes for a really unique and capable jacket. Unlike others in your closet, this will acquire a wear and patina unique to you with time – but you can rest assured knowing that one thing it’ll never do is come apart on you thanks to Mission Workshop’s Forever Guarantee. Prices are set at $675. [Purchase]
