You know raincoats? If you hardly use them, then it is safe to say your impression of one is that is worn by Paddington Bear. Nope. In fact, raincoat can be so much cooler and the Styrman Ultralight Raincoat by Mission Workshop proves the point. Styrman Ultralight Raincoat is Mission Workshop’s take of the classic raincoat, built using advanced performance fabrics and construction techniques. It is totally packable and waterproof, like a good raincoat should, keeping you nice and dry on the inside even in torrential rain, and it does so all without weighing you down and suffocating you (like I did every time I wear one of those traditional raincoat) – thanks to 96 g/m2 high-performance Toray Entrant fabric that is both lightweight and breathable.
Moreover, the material also boasts comfort stretch (a feature that many raincoat lacks, if I may add), moisture relieve and has fully-tapped seams, and it comes with a removable hood, custom YKK weatherproof zippers and Riri Snaps, and an ample number of pockets, including a few with media port and a couple of ported zippered hand-warmer pockets. Yours for a healthy $690. I have to admit that amount is kind of hefty, but considering that it is actually multifunctional, serving duties as a jacket, windbreaker and a raincoat, it might actually be worth the money. Besides, it is hard to pass on looking good, isn’t it? Steal a few more looks below.
