Amply insulated with 700-fill goose down, this iconic vest is extremely warm, lightweight, and highly compressible for travel. The durable, mini-ripstop nylon exterior is reinforced at the shoulders with a layer of woven nylon with DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed light moisture. Finished with a hem cinch-cord to ward-off upward gusts of wind. Limited Edition.
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.
