Frontier Gear of Alaska Brooks Range Jacket
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 insulation available- Primaloft sport synthetic insulation. The continuous fiber design of Primaloft Sport eliminates the need for baffles, which in turn eliminates insulation shift and thousands of stitch holes through the windproof shell. The outer shell material is made of Pertex Quantum endurance, a waterproof, breathable fabric. 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 Derlin zipper. The bottom of the jacket has adjustable hem cords to prevent wind from entering the jacket. There is also an optional removable zip-off baffled hood for additional weather protection. Even though this jacket has a waterproof breathable exterior for conditions where rain and snow may be mixed it is not designed as a one hundred percent waterproof 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.
