Hand-picked favorites from our sponsored team of professional athletes.
Whether you’re in the Alps or the Himalayas, weather conditions can be just as challenging as the terrain and a smart layering system will keep you warm while scouting first descents. This lightweight 700-fill hooded midlayer has wicking FlashDry™ fleece panels under the arms and a Thermo3D® design for body-mapped insulation to provide breathable warmth without bulk. The 15D nylon ripstop exterior has a DWR (durable water repellent) treatment to shed moisture and keep high-loft down insulation dry. Easily stuffs into its stow pocket and can be tucked away in your backpack next to your shovel as an emergency layer when snowstorms roll through.
As a leader in the outdoor industry, The North Face® has developed innovative, proprietary fabrics that incorporate microporous particles to improve moisture management and temperature regulation during outdoor activity. FlashDry™ fabrics feature a microporous particle additive that accelerates the removal of moisture from the skin and speeds evaporative drying. FlashDry™ enables the user to stay drier, more comfortable and out performing longer in a wide range of weather conditions and environments. FlashDry™ doesn’t add weight or bulk and never washes or wears out.
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.
