A modern update to a classic bestseller: our Descendit Jacket is built for day-long alpine adventures. Two-layer DryVent fabric wicks away inner moisture before it makes you cold, and repels it on the outside to keep you bone dry. Lightweight, compressible Heatseeker insulation ensures optimal warmth without adding weight – ideal when full mobility is a must. Essential ski features, such as the helmet-friendly hood, powder skirt and internal goggle pocket, mean you can hit the slopes protected and prepared.
The North Face fundamental mission remains unchanged since day one; Build the best gear for outdoors, supporting the preservation of wild places and inspiring a global movement of outdoor exploration.

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.
