When your day involves skinning up the mountain, dropping cornices, finding lines in super-tight trees, and hitching a ride home in the back of someone's pickup, your outerwear is going to take some abuse. Good thing The North Face Men's Fuse Brigandine Jacket features the new FuseForm technology, which integrates targeted extra-durable, abrasion-resistant zones in the places where a big-mountain rider takes the most abuse: the shoulders, sides, and inner arms. These heavyweight nylon sections combine with the midweight nylon body of the jacket to keep things lightweight and low-profile.
Three-layer HyVent Alpha fabric provides you with waterproof, breathable protection while the tricot lining keeps things soft and comfortable. A stretch powder skirt with clip integration keeps the snow outside your coat instead of in when you're bombing the steep and deep. An array of pockets, many featuring water-repellent AquaGuard Vislon zippers, gives you plenty of room for your phone, radio, money, snacks, whiskey flask, etc.
