The North Face Chakal Jacket
Fully equipped with body-mapped Heatseeker™ insulation, the waterproof North Face Chakal Ski Jacket is ready to tackle tricky backcountry conditions or hold a secure edge on piste, regardless of the weather. Waterproof Stretch DryVent™ and a storm-proof feature set yield warmth and protection in a whiteout, allowing you to experience fluffy powder in comfort.
Stretch DryVent™ - Waterproof Comfort
Constructed from The North Face's Stretch DryVent™ waterproof fabric, the North Face Chakal Jacket has fully taped seams for guaranteed waterproof performance. DryVent fabric's pores are sized to allow moisture vapor in the form of perspiration to pass through to the outside, while being too small for water molecules to enter from the outside, thus keeping you dry and therefore warm in wet weather and while active. The Fabric's stretch element ensures that this North Face Ski Jacket moves with your active body for maximal freedom.
Body-mapped Heatseeker™ insulation places the warmest Heatseeker™ in the North Face Chakal Jacket's body, where the need to retain core warmth is greatest, there's a lighter weight insulation in the sleeves, where freedom of movement takes a greater priority, and even less in the hood to keep the Ski Jacket's weight down. Heatseeker™ - a synthetic insulation - relies upon soft, fine filament fibres that trap warm air in among them, for great thermal efficiency that's breathable, comfortable, compressible, durable and comfortingly warm without bulk on freezing chairlifts.
Stave Off Snowstorms
Stave off strong winds and snowstorms with The North Face Chakal Jackets feature set; its zip-off Ski Helmet compatible hood has full adjustability, a peak that causes moisture to run off clear of your face, and lightweight insulation that provides very welcome warmth in challenging weather. The North Face Chakal Jacket's powderskirt has a grippy seal to keep it in place, hindering powdery snow and cold draft ingress, and it snaps back neatly when not required. Internal stretch cuffs add an extra dose of snug comfort and further snow/draft-proofing. And when the sun makes a more determined appearance, this North Face Ski Jacket has zipped vents under the arms, allowing fresh air to permeate, preventing over-heating.
The North Face Chakal Jacket has a useful range of pockets catering for the small essentials needed for a great day on the slopes. It's secure wrist zip pocket is designed to hold an electronic lift pass for straight forward access at the lift gates and has a Ski Goggle wipe attached. Two zipped pockets are placed to warm hands, while the North Face Chakal Jacket's distinctive AquaGuard™ zip chest pockets store a piste map, sun cream, or a spare pair of glove liners. Inside, there's a large stretch mesh Ski Goggle pocket and a small secure zipped chest pocket situated for secure phone/electronic gadget stowage.
