Product Info

Alpine endurance athletes who have gone to their limit in The North Face Freethinker FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket have come back with "mind = blown" reports of its breathability at full gas exertion levels, leaving them to think more freely about whether or not climbing with a hard shell on is a worthy consideration in many situations. The Freethinker FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket has definitely changed the game for dedicated climbers and backcountry devotees. Heck, a number of TNF's pros won't wear anything else now. For the athlete who is constantly pushing the limits of what's possible, this coat deserves serious consideration.

FUTURELIGHT™ 3LThe nanospinning process used to create FUTURELIGHT™ fabric has allowed the brand to add unmatched air permeability into the membrane of a fabric for the first time. The process creates nano-level holes, allowing for incredible porosity while maintaining total waterproofness, letting air move through the material and provide more venting than ever before.
