Heritage-inspired down-insulated Steep Tech™ jacket features a low-profile, all-business look. Constructed with heavy-duty materials for resilient use while tearing up the steeps at Chamonix, or the chutes closer to home. Designed with The North Face® athlete and extreme skiing pioneer, Scot Schmidt, this classic alpine jacket may make you feel invincible on the mountain.
Using only the highest quality goose down in all of our products, The North Face® tests each lot of down at three stages of production for loftiness, moisture resistance and ability to regain loft after compression.
The fill power of goose down is an indicator of two important features: warmth-to-weight ratio and compressibility, both critical to retain warmth and furnish comfort. True fill power is measured by placing one ounce of goose down in a graduated cylinder and measuring the volume the down occupies in cubic inches. The North Face® products are insulated with exclusive, high-fill power goose down ranging from 550 to 900 fill, which represents the highest quality down commercially available.
