Product Info

To think freely in the mountains, you need a clear head. Get rid of nagging concerns like cold and wet in The North Face Free Thinker Jacket, TNF's most bomber technical coat and a favorite of their team riders. Those who get after it will appreciate the impeccable GORE-TEX® Pro 3 Layer construction - completely waterproof, supremely breathable, and taking up almost no space in your pack. The North Face includes a few features in this jacket that other minimalist GORE-TEX® Pro coats omit - thumb loop internal cuffs, a phone pocket, a mesh goggle pocket and a powder skirt - and still manage to keep the weight to 700 grams.
