This fully waterproof layer will keep him comfortable and dry all day long, thanks to breathable DryVent™ fabric, the fully seam sealed construction, and a hidden rain flap on the front zip. The fixed hood and flap-entry hand pockets provide added protection from the cold, so he won’t return home shivering.

The innovative outdoor manufacturer has been at the forefront of not just in the outdoor market, but also at the forefront of adventure, pushing the boundaries of what we know, never stop exploring.
Named after the coldest, most unforgiving face of a mountain, the brands’ humble beginnings ironically began at San Francisco’s North Beach. It was there in 1966 when two hiking enthusiasts, Dough Tompkins and his wife Susan Tompkins founded a small outdoors retail store, The North Face.
Now more than 50 years since the brand’s humble beginnings, The North Face is the first choice of many of the world's most accomplished climbers, mountaineers, extreme skiers, snowboarders, endurance runners, and explorers.
