Outlier’s Experiment 200 Is The Next Evolutionary Step For Rain Shell Jackets

Dec 17, 2019

Category: Gear

Traditionally, there’s been some sacrifice or tradeoff involved in purchasing a jacket, with warmth often coming at the cost of breathability, weight, and/or restricted range of motion. These issues, however, are increasingly falling by the wayside as the technologies involved in the materials and construction techniques continue to rapidly evolve, ultimately giving way to garments that offer the best of both worlds. A stellar example of one of these no-compromise offerings is Outlier’s new Experiment 200 – Ecstasy In The Rain Jacket.

The newest addition to the NYC-based outfit’s Experiment range, the EITR Jacket is comprised of top-shelf materials from Schoeller Textiles, including the Swiss outfit’s lightweight, four-way stretch fabric which has been laminated to an extremely-breathable and water-resistant E-static membrane — a material that’s half nylon, one-quarter polyester, and the remaining amount is a combination of elastane and polyurethane. Other noteworthy features on this unusually-named jacket include ratcheting cuffs, aluminum shock release barrels, full-length zippered side vents, and two-way water-resistant Uretek front zipper. Boasting a water column rating of 6,000mm, this modern commuter jacket tips the scales at just 1.4lbs (for the medium size), and has been priced at $750.

Purchase: $750
