This is our Flagship Shell, our pride and joy.  Named for the amount of R&D behind it, this rain jacket is many, many months in the making.  It combines two revolutionary fabrics into one versatile jacket. 

A grey Dyneema upper (shoulders, upper torso and hood) provides security against abrasive pack straps.  These are the areas that will come into the most direct contact with rain while hiking so it make sense to use a fabric here that will not ever wet-out. 

The lower (pits, lower torso and sleeves) utilize the developmental XCTB1B3/H2 fabric, a Dyneema Fiber + ePTFE membrane composite for maximum breathability.

The Flagship Shell weighs in at a mere 5.6 oz for a size Large! It has fully adjustable cuffs, hood and waist. The cuffs feature reinforced sections of Dyneema Hybrid Fabric with snaps for adjustment.  This method is lighter and less irritating than Velcro.  The Hood has a reinforced brim with two side adjusters and the waist features a rear cinch.      

There's a reason the two other companies who made a jacket with this material do not anymore.  Painstaking construction is involved in every step of the process: each jacket takes around 6 hours to complete and utilizes 36 feet of seam tape!  For that reason, this run is limited to 10 units. 

Note:  The included stuff sack best fits our Flagship Shell folded into fourths length-wise and then rolled tightly.  Our hood is form-fitting and will accommodate a hat but not a helmet. 

Specs:

Weight: 4.5-6.5 oz (size Large is 5.56 oz)
Water Vapor Transmission Rate:  50000 g/m2-24hrs
Water Resistance: >15000 mm H20
Stuff Sack Weight: 7 Grams

Sizing:
Wear a shirt and measure under your arms, around the fullest part of you chest.  Choose your jacket size based on chest girth below and preference.  Models in photos are both wearing a size Large.  David in brown pants is 6'1", 185 lbs, 42.5" chest and prefers a snug fit.  Dean in blue jeans is 5'11", 155 lbs and prefers a looser fit in order to wear mid layers or a puffy underneath.  If you're concerned about sizing, when in doubt, size up.  A size too small is always worse than a size too large.
