A perennial athlete favorite, this baffled jacket features 800-fill water-resistant down for reliable insulation during backcountry excursions in wet weather. The exclusive water-resistant treatment allows the large clusters of goose down to stay dry longer for improved insulating performance. This highly compressible, thermal mid-layer can be stowed in its hand pocket and carried out-of-bounds as an emergency layer for when the temperature drops.
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.
