In need of a last-minute gift idea? I’ve been a long time supporter of Mission Workshop and for a limited time, they’re giving back to the readers of PiNP with a killer discount on two of their newest releases. Here are the details:
“Exclusive for Prolly is Not Probably readers : Grab a serious cold-weather riding kit at a discount. Available together or individually, the Trigger Windproof Jacket ($199.50 – normally $285) and the Bosun Merino Wool Jacket ($185.50 – normally $265), will keep you warm and protected into the depths of winter. Knowing that the you guys are going to be on your bikes no matter the temperature, MW felt like this was a well-deserved discount for those who will be thrashing in the mud, plowing through icy streets after the storm, and generally staying rad all winter long. ”

Here’s more information on the Trigger jacket from Mission Workshop I showed you in my Interbike coverage.
“Built for cool-weather riding over any terrain.The Trigger is made from incredibly tough, windproof and water resistant Swiss made Schoeller WB400 soft shell fabric. In addition to it’s weather resistant properties, the WB400 fabric provides exceptional breathability and temperature regulation. Two ported internal media pockets and a touring-style rear pocket provide carry options for small items.Features include JRC Reflex “Black” reflective piping and a matte black YKK Mil-Spec water resistant zipper. The cut is slim and slightly longer in the arms and back for riding. Built in thumb loops supply knuckle and hand coverage in cool weather. Layers nicely with the Bosun Merino wool riding jacket.”
Pre-order is open now. Orders will ship the end of October.
Mission Workshop’s high end field jacket, the Eiger is open for pre-order with a slated shipping estimate of late October:
“The Eiger is our take on the classic military field jacket updated with all the modern advantages of technical outerwear, and the first apparel release in the Advanced Projects Series.
The Eiger is constructed from Swiss-made Schoeller c_change™ fabric which utilizes a heat reactive, waterproof-breathable membrane to regulate body temperature and comfort. The addition of wool-facing on the exterior of the Eiger shell creates a tailored outward appearance while the waterproof membrane provides complete protection from rain, wind, and snow. Full seam taping and a three-point adjustable hood ensure that you’ll stay dry when the storm rolls in.
True to its heritage, this field jacket is equipped with the traditional four-pocket front and is modernized with two internal media pockets, and a large cycling-style rear stowage compartment.
Made in Vancouver, British Columbia.”
