The skin up was a sweaty one, and now your baselayer is about to freeze on the summit. Lucky for you, The North Face Steep Series Men's FuseForm Brigandine 2L Insulated Jacket is a quick pull out of your backpack. Let its body mapped Primaloft Silver insulation warm you back up while you rest before the ski down, and the fully taped, HyVent Alpha shell gives you the waterproof protection you need for the powdery ski down. Alpha is extra breathable compared to other HyVent membranes, so you'll stay comfortable even if you haven't cooled off from the skin up. The North Face's FuseForm construction seamlessly engineers more durable fabrics in high wear areas like where your backpack straps rest for long lasting durability, extra wet weather protection, and enhanced compressibility. The North Face also designed this jacket with zippers under each arm for ventilated airflow, a drawcord at the hem, hook and loop tabs at each cuff, low profile thumbholes, and a hood that slides over helmets with ease. There are multiple pockets designed for radios, goggles, skins, and even an insulated pocket to protect your smartphone.
