Special Blend Utility Jacket, this jacket blew me away when I first opened it. It is supposed to be a textured rip stop material and it is soft and supple as can be. The Early line-up is my jacket of choice. It looks nothing like a candy cane so don't worry about that at all. My co-worker runs the early line-up pilsner daily. Every color is great, looks good and feels even better.
15K waterproofing and 10K breathability means Dry and Legit. This shell is amazing, it feels and acts like it is insulated but its not. Fully taped seams and a media pocket. You are set.
