The pinnacle of mountaineering.
In 2017, The North Face assembled an international team of elite athletes, designers, and innovators with the goal of creating the world’s most sophisticated alpine climbing system. With a passion for wanting to push the boundaries of human exploration, the team focused on creating a design that enabled the world’s top athletes to be able to move more freely and fluidly in the highest of alpine regions.
Human exploration in the
high alpine is evolving.
Three years of in-depth research resulted in an innovative system of layers optimized to provide enhanced moisture management and waterproofing.
We called it the Advanced Mountain Kit™.
The Advanced Mountain Kit is a system of layers designed to perform together.
Designed for fast and light alpine pursuits, the Advanced Mountain Kit features five proprietary technologies, combined in a unique layering system to push the limits of human potential.
This performance-driven base layer utilizes yarns that actively pull moisture from the skin and expel it to the outside of the garment.
This leading-edge technology uses a full-loop fabric construction that optimizes weight and thermoregulation to provide all-day comfort.
At last, down
Revolutionary breathable down construction pairs high air permeability face fabric with down-proof baffles, providing breathable warmth when highly active.
Freedom to move.
Our most advanced breathable-waterproof technology with added air permeability for better venting and breathability.
Innovative offset baffle construction minimizes build and maximizes warmth, using 1000-fill ProDown™ in an extremely lightweight, high-loft package.
