I'm excited by the actuator jacket and the tesselate shirt.

Just dropped by Uncle Otis at lunch and touched W+H SS long coat. Label says its Poly and nylon blend which is what Ten-c is made out of. Was not as beefy and dense as Ten-c but curious to see how it would hold up in water / wind. W+H site says its water resistant,

So my rain jacket finally fell apart on me yesterday, and I need to get something new for this crazy weather! I live in Hawaii, so breathability is a huge concern. When it rains here, it really rains - it'll be 85 degrees out and sunny but dumping rain and flooding at the same time. I have had difficulty balancing waterproofness and breathability, and I haven't found anything that strikes the right balance.
Anyone have any suggestions? I'd also like something that looks good and lasts for a while, and I'm not gonna be doing any outdoor sports in it, just some light field work, and a lot of walking/hiking. I'm gonna spend today reading through the thread, but any help in the meantime would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

To my mind you will never get the perfect balance between waterproof and breathable. You should maybe try something ventile which will not offer you the same waterproof capabilities as gore or other membranes but is much more breathable. At some point you will need to decide on if waterproof or breathable is more important to you and choose accordingly.

I think veilance just released a goretex version of their isogon..

(for dude in hawaii)
post #368 of 945
The model name is Actuator. Significantly higher price than the Isogon:

Get a jacket made out of c change. The Stealth from triple aught design comes to mind. Mission workshop has some c change jackets as well

random fashion thought/technical outerwear. For the most part I like wearing SISP & Veilance in fall winter, but for the summer i prefer nanamica.

Just want to say thanks to the contributors in this thread. I learned a lot about companies and materials by reading here. 

 

Tried to pick up a Veilance jacket, but it turned out that the boxy fit and orange color aren't for me. (see sig.)

 

Might go for a Mission workshop jacket or a pair of trousers from Outlier sometime soon, if the latter ever restocks...

Outlier is supposed to restock the new OGs at the end of this month. Crossing my fingers it's not delayed as I'm going on a South America trip on April 19th and would love to take them with me.

Would you care to share more ? Am deep in both Veilance & Stone Island and looking to add for spring/summer...........

post #374 of 945
I find with Nanamica, you still get performance stuff without it looking like too technical. Especially the shirts and pants have a more casual look to them, overall a lighter feel than what SISP & Veilance offer even though they offer lighter clothing & colours in the summertime as well.. I'm only speaking from my personal point of view, but I find that all the technical stuff only really looks good in bad weather.

Like you really need goretex in the summer anyway.

Tropical rains & Monsoon season withstanding, I see your point and appreciate the view......As I just received another Veliance piece today me thinks it is time to move on........

 

Thanks for the input and have fun.
