The 2017 Fuseform Brigandine 3-Layer Jacket from The North Face, a highlight of their Steep Series product line, is meant for top performance in the gnarliest conditions. The lightweight, waterproof construction features four-way stretch to enhance mobility and abrasion-resistant nylon on the shoulders and arms, the areas most exposed to pack straps. Pit zips without mesh not only dump heat but also allow easy access to mid layer pockets, and the baggy fit and helmet-compatible hood allow free movement for throwing down without resistance.
