rock solid build, stacks of features
not as light and flexible as some of the competition

The Brigandine uses TNF's award winning FuseForm construction, a lightweight, breathable and waterproof fabric which is also abrasion-resistant in critical areas.

The fabric isn't as soft and flexible as I was expecting but it's tough as old boots that's for sure.

The Brigandine is also a great looking garment, with so many features we can but give a list of them here. So, you get fully taped seams, adjustable, helmet-compatible fixed hood, Recco reflector, two zipped chest pockets (note all zips are waterproof), pit zips, zipped utility pocket, flap-cover, zipped hand pockets, flap-cover, zipped wrist pocket with goggle cloth, abrasion zones at shoulders, sides and inner arms, thumb-loop cuffs, adjustable cuffs, internal water-resistant, insulated phone pocket, two internal mesh stash pockets, powder skirt and adjustable hem. Phew!

That's a lot of jacket, specifically designed for big mountain riders who hammer their kit. If that sounds like you, we recommend checking it out.
