The season of winter and The North Face go together like Christmas and warm cocoa. For over half a century the celebrated clothing brand has been gearing up athletes, sport stars, adventurers, and the common people to make sure comfort is paired with classy.
The North Face Steep Series returns for the new season, ‘designed to meet the demands of big-mountain athletes’. The new range promises the wearer to you to venture further and stay out for longer.
The A-cad jacket immediately suggests relief, screaming durability and softness, whilst also allowing it to stand out from the crowd with a new topo print and bold patterns. The Brigandine jacket also returns and both feature all the usual functionality including articulated hoods, zip-pack friendly pockets, radio loops and bonded elbows for added durability. The Brigandine Futurelight Bib Trousers can also be proudly worn by men and women for ultimate utility, whether on the slopes or simply taking the sights a little bit further from home.
The North Face have crafted the collection with the backcountry in mind. Importantly here the onus is on the deft incorporation in the pinnacle snow collection of the innovative FUTURELIGHT fabric, something that proves to be a real game changer for those battling the elements and being tested by the terrain. Tested rigorously all the way at the top of Mount Everest, no less, the FUTURELIGHT membrane allows air to pass through for better venting and breathability without sacrificing waterproofness and durability.
This new nano-fibre structure has enabled The North Face to create what they claim to be their most lightweight, breathable membrane to date: ‘an ultra-thin, nimble garment that feels just as comfortable and provides the protection needed against the elements in the harshest environments’. Unmatched breathability combined with exceptional durability makes it perfect for long winter adventures. Running across men’s and women’s silhouettes, the collection arrives in an array of bold colours and prints.
Bringing the comfort and cosiness of being home-secure to the outdoors, the North Face have equipped you for the season once again. The collection is available to buy at select The North Face stores and partner retailers as well as The North Face webstore.
