The Feature Presentation
The North Face jackets cater to the way you play. Many of The North Face ski jackets come with internal pockets specifically designed for your goggles and media devices as well as wrist pockets for your RFID ski pass that include a goggle wipe cloth.
Adjustable hoods let you customize your fit and helmet compatible hoods give you the coverage you need while removable hoods allow you to get rid of the bulk when you don’t. Powder skirts keep both the snow and the wind off your back and adjustable velcro sleeve cuffs make it easy to layer gauntlet gloves and seal your wrists away from the elements.
For those who play harder, underarm air ventsprovide extra ventilation and prevent moisture build up for both comfort and safety. The North Face ski jackets with the FuseForm construction technique seamlessly integrates tougher, more durable threads into areas prone to wear-and-tear without restricting range-of-motion.
Most North Face jackets are media compatible, allowing you to keep your phone safe and dry as you rock out to your tunes on the slope or on the bus.
North Face kids jackets have internal ID labels so you know whose coat is whose and reflection strips to give your little ones added visibility.
Warm from Within
The North Face jackets are insulated with a range of natural and synthetic fills. The North Face jackets have more insulation around the core and lighter insulation in the arms to give you warmth where you need it and flexibility and breathability where you are more likely to feel the burn.
North Face down jackets are certified with the Responsible Down Standard so you know that the natural down fill was sourced from geese that were treated well. North Face down jackets range from lightweight 550 fill down for general outdoor and day-to-day use (found in The North Face Gotham Jacket) up to 900 fill down for the highest quality and warmth available to the industry (found in the Summit Series jackets).
The disadvantage of natural down is that it loses most of its insulating ability once it gets wet but synthetic insulation tends to be stiff, heavy and bulky. The brilliant solution to this problem: The North Face Thermoball.
Thermoball has received excellent reviews across the board for its ability to mimic the feel and lightweight insulation of natural down while still retaining all of its warmth when wet. Read one review here.
It’s not just what’s on the inside that counts:
The North Face jackets use top of the line materials protected by various levels of waterproofing and wind-proofing. Windstopper and Windwall technologies create an impenetrable shield against gusty weather while DWR, Dryvent and Gore-Tex keep the moisture out.
On The North Face soft shell TNF Apex jackets and casual outerwear, a DWR, or Durable Water Resistant, coating is used to help keep moisture out in the case of a light rain or a stray snowball.
Dryvent technology is used for moderate to active use jackets to create water and windproof barriers that are still highly breathable. Dryvent’s polyurethane coating keeps rain and wet snow from permeating the fabric while still letting your perspiration evaporate to keep you warm and dry.
Gore-Tex is used on North Face ski jackets that are meant to withstand the most extreme wet conditions. Water droplets bead up and run off the surface without you ever knowing they were there. Go ahead, make some turns through the snow machines or head to the top of the mountain in a blizzard and see if your North Face GTX jacket cares.
The Jacket of all Trades
If you ever wished that your jacket was more versatile, a North Face Triclimate jacket is right for you. A removable, cozy liner zips into a waterproof shell to give you a great performance rain or ski jacket that can withstand the elements. Wear both pieces together when it is nippy outside, or choose between either layer as a separate of its own when the weather is milder.
The North Face fleece collection also has an assortment of versatile pieces. Ranging from light-weight to mid-weight fleece, a North Face fleece can serve as both a mid-layer or an independent outer layer. The heaviest weight Polartec fleece will keep you content even into the late months of autumn.
