​Who is the Outcast Designed For?

Introduction

We designed the Outcast in conjunction with Evolved Supply Co. to provide more versatility in an outdoor jacket while still offering high-level performance.

Here are some uses for the new outcast and what features make the outcast a good choice, as well as some people who might not choose the Outcast.

Who is the Outcast for?

Hikers

  • Soft 20D liners allow for a superior next-to-skin feel, even when damp.
  • Drop tail prevents scrunching up underneath a backpack hip belt.

Rock Climbers

  • With ample additional length in the hem and sleeves, the Outcast is ideal for high-reaching rock climbing moves.
  • Side-stretch fleece panels run along the sides and half-way down the arms, allowing 360° flexibility
  • The 30D Toray Shell fabric is our most durable shell fabric to date, outperforming in-class insulated climbing jackets.

Cyclists

  • The drop tail and extra long sleeves maintain coverage while riding bent over.
  • Power stretch cuffs help seal the wrists to avoid cold drafts up the sleeves.

Alpinists and Mountaineers

  • The additional face fabric weight of the Outcast makes it much more durable when dealing with sharp edges like ice tools, skis and crampons.

Skiiers and Snowboarders

  • The heavier face fabric complimented with stretch panels provides a good balance between downhill wind resistance and uphill breathability.
  • The drop tail and stretch cuff hems help keep snow out.

Travelers and Everyday Users

  • 30D face fabric is durable and low-key while still performing at a high level.
  • Face fabric is wind resistant while fleece panels provide breathability.
  • Deep insulated pockets provide storage for essentials.

Who isn’t the Outcast for?

There are some communities that will be better served by other jackets than the outcast. Here’s a quick list.

Gram Counters

  • We designed the Outcast as a compliment to the Torrid, and that included some additional weight for more features and aesthetic choices. If you’re a thru-hiker seeking the most lightweight jacket, the Torrid is a better choice weighing just over half the weight of the Outcast.

Hiker Trash Icons

  • We designed this jacket to not look like you’ve been living out of a backpack.

Workwear Aficionados

  • Our 30D nylon is tough stuff, no doubt, but it’s not built to withstand heavy brushwork.
