Spending time in the "Brig" is never pleasant if you're Captain Jack, but if we're talking The North Face Brigandine FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket and you're headed for a long day in the backcountry it's a whole different thing. This is TNF's strongest and longest FUTURELIGHT™ coat, designed for people who consider a full-on storm day a welcome chance to ride without the crowds, and beefed up with the addition of Spectra® ripstop fabric to the mix. The Brigandine also has more pockets than you have digits on a hand, so remembering where you put it is more of an issue than having space for it. With one of the best hoods in the business and storm-ready YKK® AquaGuard® zippers at every opening, the Brig is actually a great deal on a truly superb piece of technical, high-performance winter equipment.
FUTURELIGHT™ 3L – The nanospinning process used to create FUTURELIGHT™ fabric has allowed the brand to add unmatched air permeability into the membrane of a fabric for the first time. The process creates nano-level holes, allowing for incredible porosity while maintaining total waterproofness, letting air move through the material and provide more venting than ever before.
