Down jacket with a hood from the brand The North Face warm and breathable.
The M Summit L3 50/50 Down Hoodie jacket is presented as the solution to the problems of alpinists and expedition members in aerobic activities. This hooded jacket has been created as a intermediate layer that allows the user to give the user perfect control of their body temperature during approaches and intense activities, allowing isolation from the cold outside without compromising breathability.
The 50/50 technology consists of aluminized panels filled with 800FP goose down with a water-repellent treatment that, thanks to its incredible ability to swell and create hot air spaces between the body and the outdoor weather, manages to keep us in perfect thermal comfort. These panels are topped with a very light and air-permeable outer layer, allowing for great breathability without adding little extra weight. The result is a light, warm, breathable garment with incredible compactness.
The quality of the pen is one of the best on the market. One ounce (28 grams) of feather achieves an inflation capacity of 800 cubic inches, just over 13 liters. This incredible expansion of the padding is what provides an unmatched ability to keep us warm without adding excessive weight. The ProDown treatment is The North Face's natural insulation, with a water-resistant finish to absorb less water and dry faster than traditional down. Used in Summit and Steep series insulation parts and all down sleeping bags, ProDown offers better performance in harsh conditions. The goose down itself is treated with a hydrophobic finish that finally wears off in ten washes. The quality and the treatments used are not the only virtues of the feather of this bag; the Down Responsibility Standard (RDS) guarantees that the geese have not suffered unnecessary damage such as force-feeding or plucking in life, also having a traceability system to know the origin of the down used. .
The outer fabric is 20 denier polyamide with a DWR finish to provide water resistance in the event that we are going to use it without a third layer and we are surprised by snow or light rain. It is an extremely fine and breathable fabric to give compactness to the whole jacket and not limit its thermal and breathability capabilities.
The M Summit L3 50/50 Down Hoodie jacket has a perfect structure to be used in any technical activity. Pattern adjusted to the body and movements of the climber, it is designed to be used with climbing equipment; It has raised side pockets so that they are accessible even with the harness on, adjustment handles and quick-pull zipper trolleys adapted for use with gloves and compatible hood for use with a helmet with visor and pre-tensioned with rear adjustment handle.
