Whether you're on a backcountry backpacking trip, a long-distance hike, or just a casual walk, you want a waterproof jacket that can handle downpours without making you sweat. With a breathable jacket from The North Face, you get all that in one packable package.

 

Breathable jackets for on-the-go comfort

 

Our waterproof breathable jackets are built for life on the move. Their versatility makes them perfect for switching from city adventures to hitting the trails. Stretchy construction means you can bend and twist to get around all the obstacles in your way or set up your tent without straining at the seams. On a day hike, store your extra snacks, your phone, or your wallet in a chest pocket, with hand pockets to keep your fingers toasty in a chill wind. Our warmer jackets are perfect for snowsports, with ski goggles getting their own pocket in several styles. With underarm pit zips, you can vent right where you need it most and avoid a seat buildup that can make things uncomfortable. With some of our lightest constructions available, our hiking styles are perfect for avid backpackers to add to their other men's and women's hiking gear.

 

Men's and women's breathable rain jackets and more

 

When it comes to precip protection for all your favorite outdoor activities, we've got you covered... literally. Our seam-sealed rainwear is built to keep the wet and damp out so you can have your outdoor fun, whatever the weather. From light rain and snow to downpours and blizzards, the waterproof face fabric keeps you dry without overheating. We've also engineered our outerwear for peak comfort and adjustability. Tighten adjustable cuffs and drawstring hoods to keep out the rain, then loosen them again to vent heat when the storm passes.

 

What is a breathable jacket?

 

A breathable jacket is waterproof outerwear that offers the comfort of a softshell with the protection of a raincoat. They're designed to keep you from overheating while on the move, unlike a typical laminate waterproof rain jacket.

 

What is the best breathable jacket?

 

We've got tons of styles of breathable jackets. In cold weather, our Men's New Outerboroughs Jacket offers an unbeatable warmth and style combo. Hitting the slopes? Grab our Women's Superlu Jacket. And hikers will love the lightweight protection of the Women’s Dryzzle FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket.

 

Is a breathable jacket waterproof?

 

Yes, many of our breathable jacket styles are waterproof. Others are water-resistant, or windproof to act as a windbreaker. You can get a watertight shell jacket for weather protection of all kinds. Our waterproof shells are coated in a DWR finish (durable water repellent) to keep you comfy and dry.

 

We’ve made comfort a priority with our breathable jackets. When you’re ready to go adventuring, keep comfortable with a jacket that can prevent overheating.
