Breathable, waterproof, durable and comfortable, the Verbier Jacket blends freeride style with big-mountain performance.
First introduced to the public in 2019, The North Face’s FUTURELIGHT™ technology has shaken up the performance outerwear market. The result of a three-year development process, this proprietary material utilizes nanotechnology—so-called “nano-spinning”—to create a membrane that’s both waterproof and air-permeable. To dumb that down a bit for you ski-obsessed knuckleheads out there: Water gets out, but it doesn’t get in.
The Summit Series is The North Face’s top-shelf outerwear collection, designed to perform in the most inclement conditions for some of the world’s top athletes—so of course it's got FUTURELIGHT™ integrated. Today we’re taking a look at the Women’s Summit Verbier jacket.
Marketed towards inbounds and sidecountry skiing, the Summit Verbier jacket aims to tick all the boxes in terms of both function and fashion. The fully seam-sealed 3L FUTURELIGHT™ shell keeps you protected from the elements while venting internal moisture, and a bevy of backpack-compatible pockets—two on the chest, two at the waist and two inside—offer plenty of stash space.
