Innovation for the modern day explorer

For over 40 years, The North Face® has provided an authentic solution to the real needs of athletes.

WindWall : Wind Protection 

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.
