Made with the highest level of down available, this 900-fill down jacket provides super lightweight protection during all-out, alpine-style summit attacks. Extremely light down jacket packs a thermal punch without any of the weight, or bulk of traditional down coats. Marrying lightweight filling with Pertex® 10 denier nylon ripstop exterior, this tech-laden Summit Series® jacket provides a durable shell that's resilient against rocks. Denier is a unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers – the higher the denier, the thicker the fiber. Trust us when we say 10 denier is extremely svelte. This product contains at least 90% bluesign® approved fabric -- a standard for environmentally responsible production.
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.
