Mission Workshop | The Division Chino

MW is really hitting the apparel market hard and I’m impressed. I’ll be headed to SF here in about two weeks and I am for sure gonna swing by MW’s shop to peep the new goodies coming in person. Until then I can only drool over the Division Chino online.

The Division chino is designed to be hard wearing and long lasting. Constructed using Swiss-made Schoeller®-Dryskin Fabric with Nanosphere® water repellent treatment. This durable 4-way stretch nylon fabric is engineered to provide breatability and moisture management in addition to wind and water repellency.

Made in USA.

John Watson // The Ends – Video Trailer

John Watson // The Ends – Video Trailer from Mission Workshop on Vimeo.

I have been waiting to see footage from John and Mission Workshop’s trip to China earlier this year. Just with this short teaser, I can’t wait for me own adventure rides later this summer and fall. Good stuff guys!

Setting out from Shanghai, John Watson and Mission Workshop began their cycling tour of China’s Yangtze River Delta. Using both film and digital formats, Watson photographed the surroundings and encounters with the local community. Led by their friends from Factory Five, they headed into a frenetic network of massive residential complexes, large industrial parks, and super highways. At first glance, the route seemed straightforward, however, the reality of the 1,000km trip was far more intense than anyone expected.
