The new FuseForm™ Brigandine 3L Jacket has been built like never before to withstand the toughest conditions on Earth, enabling extreme big-mountain skiing and snowboarding. This Steep Series™ jacket is engineered with FuseForm™ construction, which allows fabric to transition seamlessly from Codura® nylon used on high-abrasion zones (i.e. shoulder) to 2-way stretch material on flex zones (i.e. arm and elbow). FuseForm is the groundbreaking new construction technique from The North Face which delivers multiple benefits in one product without bulk. FuseForm™ eliminates the need for thread and seam tape, thus increases breathability, reduces weight and waste, and maximises flexibility. With FuseForm™, we have greater flexibility to mould and create a more modern fit for the jacket. Utilising HyVent® technology, the jacket is waterproof, breathable, and will stay dry both inside and out.
