Innovative DryVent fabric repels moisture on the outside and wicks away sweat from the inside, keeping you completely dry all day long. A fixed peak hood helps deflect rain as you look to the peak, while an elasticated hem and cuffs ensure a snug fit all the way to the top.

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.
