North Face kept it minimal this year with just a handful of their new line of snowboard jackets on show. But we thought we’d give you a look at them anyway…
We’ve picked two options from their line, the Goretex Free Thinker (left) and the new ISPO award winning Fuse Brigandine (right) – similar colourways but two different styles, and both packed with features.
Free Thinker (Left)
The Free Thinker is a Goretex triple layer jacket that has been popular in the past for it’s durable rugged outer and ability to perform in demanding conditions. Guaranteed to keep you dry even over long periods, this could well be your best friend when the going get’s tough.
Designed for big mountain riding – the Brigandine carries a similar theory, but has HyVent® Alpha fabric using FuseForm™ construction (don’t worry that went right over our heads too) to keep it super-lightweight and strengthen specific areas when you’re riding steeps. Super tech stuff.
