Military Styling, Modernized

Military Styling, Modernized

The military field jacket ranks high in the annals of apparel design—and with good reason. The traditional four wide pockets and two zippered hand-warmer pockets offer plenty of on-the-road storage, and the functional, tailored fit is at home in the backcountry and the urban jungle. Mission Workshop has brought that sensibility into the 21st century with the Eiger, a fully waterproof field jacket with taped seams, a host of internal media-storage pockets, a three-point-adjustable hood, and wool facing on the exterior to boost its aesthetic appeal. Climate protection comes from Schoeller’s c_change fabric, which deploys a heat-reactive waterproof/breathable membrane that automatically regulate your body temperature. At $745, it’s no impulse buy, but the classic styling assures that you’ll be wearing it for years to come.
