Hike across open fields or bluffs with little tree coverage wearing this midweight WindWall® 2 fleece for reliable coverage from the wind. The bonded fleece fabric remains highly breathable while effectively reducing the effects of windchill. The durable grid fleece backing remains soft against the skin for an additional layer of warmth and comfort.
Exclusive to The North Face®, WindWall® is a fleece fabric that retains the comfort, flexibility and breathability of traditional fleece while eliminating wind chill. Traditional fleece tests at 200 CFM, a relatively porous rating compared to WindWall®, which rates between 10 and 40 CFM. WindWall® utilizes a unique fabric-bonding process that cuts 80 to 95 percent of wind, keeping the outdoor athlete warm while allowing enough airflow to ensure a dry and comfortable fit. WindWall® has proven a trusted year-round technology, as it shines as either a layering fabric or as a standalone outerwear in milder conditions.
WindWall® 1 fabric features a mesh liner and utilizes a unique fabric-bonding process that allows a limited degree of external air permeability.
WindWall® 2 features a gridded fleece liner for even greater insulation and utilizes a unique fabric-bonding process that allows a limited degree of external air permeability.
