Rain jackets are excellent at keeping water out at all costs – but as a result – they are also very good at keeping heat in. Generally speaking, they can be sticky heat traps that stifle as much as they repel rain or snow. Mission Workshop’s new rain jacket, the Meridian: Phase, changes that dynamic thanks to meticulous engineering and high tech materials.
Designed to be worn while jamming through the city on a bike or worn more casually – Mission Workshop’s jacket combines an attractive and minimalist design with 96g/m2 Polartec NeoShell fabric that responds to changes in heat to make it more breathable. In addition to using this technical fabric, the San Francisco based apparel company built the jacket with an offset mesh panel on the back and a stretch woven mesh side panel so you won’t have to choose between being overheated or wet when you go on your next rainy ride. Prices start at $485. [Purchase]
