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.
