New for 2013, this insulated jacket boasts 950-fill goose down insulation—the highest down fill available in the world, and available in limited supply—for an unmatched warmth-to-weight ratio. Premier thermal protection provides next-level warmth when assaulting summits in the most hostile and demanding mountain environments. Pertex® Quantum® 15D nylon ripstop is rugged, yet incredibly lightweight, allowing the large clusters of down to maintain their loft and provide incredible warmth. Even when exposed to moisture, the water-resistant down will continue to trap heat and insulate your torso. This highly compressible jacket can be stowed in its own hand pocket and packed away as an emergency layer.
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.
