Make the Thermoball™ Gilet your go-to layer for high-energy hikes this winter. Lightweight Thermoball™ insulation traps body heat in key areas to keep you cosy in seriously cold conditions. It’s just as compressible as down yet insulates even when wet, and even stows in its own pocket when you don’t need it. A hem cinch cord helps lock in extra warmth, and with a sleeveless design, you benefit from core coverage and maximum arm mobility – great for scrambling over boulders.

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.
