There always comes a time of the year when it's too cold for a light hoodie, but not cold enough to get bogged down with a parka. That's where the women's softshell jacket comes in as a perfect balance between slim lines and warmth.
Softshell jackets balance warmth and weight
From alpine heights to lowland trails, the best part of a softshell jacket is its versatility. Each softshell is lightweight enough to wear as outerwear while trail running. Many of our styles are windproof and wind-resistant, to keep you warmer even on your jog, a breezy shore, or a wind-whipped mountain. Those who like to go mountaineering will like the Women's Apex Flex Jacket, breathable while still sheltering you from the elements. Any of our softshell jackets make perfect base layers in colder climates. Just tuck your new softshell under your skiing or snowboarding jacket for extra warmth on the slopes.
Show off your beautiful women's softshell jacket
Much like our iconic fleece jackets, our outerwear is made to be seen. Find your favorite color among the many options available. You can also choose from a few silhouettes, and full-zip and pullover styles. Choose a collar that blocks the wind or pick a hoodie for extra protection and style.
Keep an eye on our special offers to see if you can get your favorite softshell for even less!
Iconic comfort from The North Face
Backcountry backpacking can seem like it must be harsh and rugged, but you can relax in comfort in front of your tent and even on the trail with the care we've put into our softshells. They truly live up to their name. Fleece and other soft fabrics will keep you relaxed and comfortable at the campsite. Misty weather can't keep you inside; our water-resistant outerwear options mean you can use several of our women's softshell jackets as rain jackets and stay snug and dry. Zippered hand pockets give you somewhere to keep trail snacks AND to stick your cold fingers to warm up. Ultimate breathability makes it easy to stay cool and comfortable on even the most sweat-raising trails.
