The North Face NFZ Jacket
If you take two pairs of skis on holiday with you - a dedicated on-piste ski and another fat off-piste ski for heading deep into the backcountry - then you need a Ski Jacket that'll meet the challenges you throw at it head-on. The North Face NFZ Jacket, from The North Face's exclusive Steep Series, is constructed and equipped to perform in deep powder and on freeride routes, then when the avalanche risk is too great and you're piste-bound, The North Face NFZ Jacket's severe weather proofing and slope-ready style hits the nail bang on.
GORE-TEX - Performance Waterproof
GORE-TEX is a fully waterproof, windproof and highly breathable membrane. The pores in the membrane are far small than a water droplet, but bigger than a vapor molecule, thus the resulting fabric is waterproof from the outside, while allowing the moisture vapor generated in active use to escape from the inside to the outside of the fabric. The tiny holes created while stitching the jacket together are sealed over with GORE seam tape, producing a completely waterproof Ski Jacket. This all means that The North Face NFZ Jacket will keep you dry and protected in the most severe mountain weather, while allowing you to remain dry and comfortable inside the Ski Jacket too.
The North Face NFZ Jacket is a technical freeride GORE-TEX Ski Jacket. Constructed with 2-layer GORE-TEX, this is a waterproof shell jacket offers a balance of durability and comfort with its smooth taffeta lining that slides easily over your mid-layer. A shell Ski Jacket allows you to perfectly adapt your layering system to suit the conditions and the terrain you're expecting for the day and prevents overheating on long traverses/ascents. Just pull out an Insulated Jacket from your Ski Rucksack when you need it.
Cut and designed to offer maximum freedom of movement, The North Face NFZ Jacket ensures that you can move as dynamically as the terrain dictates. This North Face Ski Jacket has underarm vents that can be unzipped for a blast of refreshing air when you need to dump heat quickly.
Snow & Weather Proof
Powder and weather-proof features include an adjustable, helmet-compatible fixed hood, a hook-&-loop sealed stormflap protecting the centre front zip. The North Face NFZ Jacket has a snap-down, stretch snow skirt with gripper elastic, to prevent powder entering your Ski Jacket even if you take a tumble.... Clip-integration allows you to connect your The North Face NFZ Jacket with a Summit Series Ski Pant to create a fully snow-proof set. The adjustable hem accommodates varying layering systems and locks warmth in. Thumb-loop cuffs keep your sleeves and vital warmth in place, while adjustable cuff tabs seal around the wrist.
Easy Access Pockets
The North Face NFZ Jacket benefits from a pocket set that holds extra provisions and a radio. By keeping a dedicated spot for all your belongings, you'll be able to function more efficiently on the mountain. There are base hand pockets, a wrist utility pocket - ideal for a lift pass - which houses a Ski Goggle wipe. At the chest, there's two waterproof zip pockets, one of which contains the radio-holder pocket. Inside The North Face NFZ Jacket, you'll find a zipped security pocket and a stretch-mesh Ski Goggle/spare lens pocket.
Fully equipped for demanding routes off the beaten track, The North Face NFZ Jacket uses exclusive Steep Series fabrics and design details to make a Ski Jacket that's ready to embrace the mountains in all their glory - from blue-sky stunners to storms and blizzards with zero visibility.
