The Summit Series is the pinnacle performance collection from The North Face. Each piece is carefully designed to help outdoor athletes push their limits without being held back by their gear. From one of the most trusted outdoors manufacturers in the business, these are kits that you can rely on when push comes to shove. Today we’re taking a closer look at the Summit Series FUTURELIGHT™ Stimson jacket.
The Stimson jacket in Chlorophyll Green. It´s also available in Cave Blue and TNF Black.
That’s quite the long name, so let’s break it down. Summit Series stands for The North Face’s top-line expedition gear—so much for that. FUTURELIGHT™ is the company’s proprietary breathable waterproof membrane, a major technological advance that employs the use of nano-spun fibers to achieve impressive results. And Stimson? Well, that’s the name of the jacket.
With FUTURELIGHT™ tech baked into the cake, the Stimson jacket is a perfect fit for ski touring and any other kind of expedition where you might find yourself sweating inside your jacket. The FUTURELIGHT™ fabric promises to wick that moisture away while still keeping you protected from the outside elements. And this, in a package that’s more supple and lightweight from the gear of yesteryear that you might be used to.
Of course, the Stimson is a shell jacket, so for insulation you’ll want to wear a suitable midlayer underneath, like the Summit Series FUTUREFLEECE™ Full-Zip Hoodie, for example.
Nobody´s going anywhere without some good pit zips.
