This jacket uses a combination of down and synthetic insulation with a waterproof, breathable shell. There are underarm vents and an internal pocket for goggles. The Primaloft insulation stays warm even when wet, and this is the jacket to have for long days on the slope.
The North Face developed this fabric to be breathable, waterproof and sturdy. It’s made of polyurethane with a special nano spinning process and lamination that allows for air permeability and doesn’t affect the vapor transfer rate.
