Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

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 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. By fusing fabrics together instead of stitching, it reduces wearing and bulk to give you incredibly durable streamlined performance. Three-layer GoreTex gives you top-performance waterproofing that can withstand extreme alpine conditions, while the tricot lining is soft and comfortable on the skin. A four-way stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant integration capabilities keeps the snow outside your coat instead of in when you're bombing the steep and deep. The collar pockets work conveniently with a radio mic so you can effectively communicate while you're getting picked up from the helicopter or double as ventilation when your back on familiar terrain.
