A North Face softshell jacket is the ideal article of clothing for late autumn adventures, early spring hikes and above the tree line explorations. Using DWR (Durable Water Repellant), Windwall and The North Face Apex technology to guard against the elements, The North Face soft shell jackets remain flexible, breathable and feel comfortable against the skin.
The North Face Apex Series
uses fabric that is tightly woven to create wind resistant, abrasion-phobic apparel that will withstand wear from pack straps. The soft-brushed, stretchy material is comfortable against the skin and easily wearable with shirts with short or no sleeves while the flexible fabric allows for a high range of motion when you are crossing streams and scrambling up a rocky trail.
A North Face soft shell jacket is perfect for those cool spring and fall days where you will be working up a sweat on the trail. The breathable fabric allows perspiration to evaporate like a fleece jacket while wind and water resistance helps to keep you warm when the breeze picks up or a rain shower catches you unexpectedly.
Equally at home on the trail or the sidewalk, a North Face soft shell jacket is the light jacket that you have been looking for!

Three separate levels ofNorth Face Apex technology specializes to the severity of weather and intensity of your aerobic activity. Apex Aerobic is designed for intense activity and provides the most breathability but compromises with low wind and water resistance. Apex Universal is the most versatile with a medium level of breathability and wind/ water resistance. Apex Climate Block is the least breathable but is 100% windproof and virtually waterproof.
