Men's Past Styles
An Ode to Past Styles
The pandemic did a number on us, and unfortunately, we had to semi-permanently retire some styles. A ton of work went into building these products, and we're still incredibly proud of them; so here's a little homage to Bight gear that came before.
Moraine Climbing Pant
A great all-around climbing pant for mountaineering, hiking, and backcountry skiing and riding. Ample pockets provided options for hauling everything from wallets and phones, to maps, snacks, beacons and one or two of the eight lip balms you have at any given time. Zippered cuffs expanded to fit over climbing boots and most ski boots.
Neoshell Nuker Jacket
Finally, a shell that was quiet, soft, and doesn't feel like an empty potato chip bag. We used revolutionary NeoShell® fabric that provides highly breathable protection with a subtle stretch for extra comfort, and designed it into a streamlined package that kept you dry in all but the heaviest downpours.
Neoshell Nuker Pant
Everything you loved about our Nuker jacket, now in pants. The waterproof breathable performance of NeoShell® protected from the elements, was quiet, and packed down well. The 7/8 side zips made transitions easy, and the zippered fly allowed for functional use over a harness. A slim lower leg profile helped reduce catching when wearing crampons and the elastic belt allowed for adjustability.
Ember Down Jacket
Super light down insulation that was treated to repel moisture, providing lightweight warmth even in foul conditions. Stretch cuffs slid over gloves easily, and the variegated baffle design reduced bulk while trapping warmth.
Caldera Down Parka
The coldest part of any climb is often the last rest break before sunrise – the one where you nearly chip a tooth on a frozen Snickers bar. That’s when you need the Caldera. The I-beam construction helped minimize cold spots, and stretchy cuffs slid over large gloves easily. The large interior stash pockets fit water bottles, gloves, and most importantly, snacks for days.
Alpha Ascender Hoody
Breathed on the move and kept the chill out in between. The Alpha Ascender Hoody was the ultimate in breathable insulation that regulated core body temperature and wicked moisture as you pushed above the treeline. Worn as a primary insulator on milder days or as a mid-layer on those extra chilly alpine starts, the Alpha Ascender Hoody worked as hard as you did so you could avoid the layer shuffle and get after it.
For those who just can't stand long-johns, we made the Glacier Short. A little extra insulation on those alpine starts went a long way, and transitions were easy once things warmed up. Full side zips made these easy to put on or take off while wearing a harness and boots with crampons, and strategically placed materials made these comfortable, durable and highly functional. Dude, who stole my crampons?
