The Faction Darwin is a three-layer shell that scored high marks among the POSSE. It has roomy zips and a relaxed fit, though it is a bit more crinkly than the jackets using Gore C-knit. Made of Toray Dermizax, which sounds like an acne treatment but is actually a fancy fabric, the Darwin has 20k/20k breathability and waterproofing. It also features a NASA-inspired Aerogel intended for added warmth without the weight, though it’s difficult to assess how effective that actually is.
