Mission Workshop’s subtle, highly-regarded lineup gets a new limited entry in the Signal LT pant. According to the brand, it borrows material from its MTB shorts to check all three big boxes and achieve the de facto holy grail of outdoor clothing: durable, water resistant, and breathable.
“Pick all three,” the brand says simply.
Mission Workshop’s campaign to secure the coveted status boils down to a material choice. The Signal LT pant draws the bulk of its powers from Tweave 518C fabric. The 84% nylon, 16% spandex military-spec textile is the U.S.-based manufacturer’s lightest-weight fabric at 4 oz. per yard. It’s got a 40 CFM (cubic feet per square meter) rating, which makes it moderately breathable for a textile that also promises water resistance.
Wicking and quick to dry, Mission Workshop says, it seeks to fulfill the performance profile of a wide array of fibers commonly found in outdoor clothing.
Four-way stretch, six total pockets including a low-profile side seam zip pocket, and YKK zippers complete the understated pants.
You’ll want to hurry to get your hands on a pair: while they’re designed to last forever in your wardrobe, they won’t be available for long, Mission Workshop said. The brand did not specify further availability details.
