We are beyond words excited about the reintroduction of our Frontier Gear of Alaska products. It's been a long time coming, but we wanted to make absolutely certain that when we launched this line, it was the absolute best it could be. We traveled the world looking for the best factories we could that could do a SMALL, and SPECIALIZED run of the highest quality products we could design. Unfortunately in the manufacturing world, those two words just simply don't "Normally" coincide. If you want quality, you must produce quantity, which for us just wasn't the goal. In turn, we were disappointed on more than one occasion with over promises of quality from factories willing to produce our numbers. Our team had one common goal in mind, and that was maintaining our small business mindset while reaching as high up the technology ladder as we possibly could. From our Insulated Jackets & Pants, to our brand new Mid Layer Pullovers, we are pleased to announce that we accomplished our goals, and even though the wait was enduring, we are confident that the products that stemmed from all this time and effort will prove to be worth it.
This is our famous jacket that Bob designed twenty-five years ago while hunting sheep in the Brooks Range. The jacket is now in use by sheep hunters all over the world from Tajikistan to Siberia as well as a layering piece for polar bear hunting.
The jacket uses the finest synthetic insulation available- Primaloft. The continuous fiber design of Primaloft eliminates the need for baffles, which in turn eliminates insulation shift and thousands of stitch holes through the windproof shell. We chose Synthetic insulation for our jackets because of Alaska's rugged terrain and weather. Keeping you dry even when wet, and having the ability to dry out remarkably fast, Primaloft's lightweight, and compressibility combined with all it's other features make it a perfect fit for backpack hunting.
The outer shell material is made of Event, a 2 Layer waterproof, breathable fabric that exceeds industry standards for breathability and durability. The jacket has zippered, fleece lined pockets as well as a fleece-lined collar. The front zipper has a built in storm guard over the front YKK Vislon Zipper. The bottom of the jacket has adjustable hem cords to prevent wind from entering the jacket.
The Brooks Range Jacket occupies very little space (approximately 6x10 inch stuff sack) and is our most popular insulated outerwear piece. This jacket is a necessity for any hunts where you are sitting glassing for long periods of time or you are in cooler conditions. The Brooks Range jacket will become one of your favorite pieces of hunting equipment and it also looks good as a casual wear garment. Average weight is 30 oz.
