Women'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
Insulation that adapted at every elevation. The Alpha Ascender Hoody was the ultimate breathable insulation that regulated core body temperature and wicked moisture with strategically placed panels. Worn as a primary insulator on milder days, or as a mid-layer on those extra chilly alpine starts, this jacket worked as hard as you did so you could avoid the layer shuffle and get after it.
Plush, cuddly, and soft, the Cozy was made with high loft fleece paired with a stretchy waist band and side panels for a comfy, feminine fit that hugged all the right places. It provided breathability on training days where you need that extra layer, and comfy warmth for chilly down days. Paired great with leggings on the trail or jeans in the city, and the generously sized hood lended extra style with an added layer of coziness.
