Warm 550-fill down gets you beyond the mid-mountain lodge and straight to the top of the mountain when the temperatures drop. This insulated hooded jacket has new, relaxed fit for 2013 for freedom of movement when worn over heavyweight mid-layers. The durable ripstop exterior has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed light snowfall. Use the snap-front elasticized powder skirt to seal out snow on epic powder days. An internal MP3 pocket and a designated pocket for your goggles helps organize accessories while keeping them accessible.
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.
