You Think You’re a Hiking Man?

Then get in here.

My favorite thing about winter, a friend once said, is watching it from the West Coast.

The cold. The snow. The posts about the snow and the cold on Facebook.

It’s … amusing.

But it’s not cold here, sirs, so we suggest you get to Mission Workshop, a new outdoorsy boutique in Silver Lake, and stat.

Visit Mission before your next hiking or camping trip.

They have a deft touch for making tough jackets and pants as well as modular backpacks.

Great for weekend travel. Biking. Day trips in the hills.

About those modular packs: we can’t recommend them enough.

They’re good for taking only what you need.

Need more space? Add a side pouch. Carrying a laptop? They’ve got a slim sleeve that attaches to the front.

Their Arce series has hydration packs that carry ten liters of water, are easy to manage and include a tool roll.

Also get the baby-lamb-soft merino wool henley or a pullover for early morning and late evening treks.
