The North Face produces outerwear that can stand up to Earth’s most extreme conditions. It recently introduced a revolutionary material that could change the future of outerwear just as much as Gore-Tex did. This is called Futurelight.

It’s a fabric that has nanospinning sprayed on it. What this does is keep out water while allowing vapor from sweating to escape. People wearing products made from Futurelight stay dry while also staying comfortable. The North Face is first introducing Futurelight in its high-end products. It first appeared in pants and jackets for those on high elevation mountain expeditions. It has also started to sell Flight Jacket which is a light-weight running jacket. Flight Jacket is sold for $280 while the mountaineering gear starts at $450 and can cost up to $750.
