The North Face® partners with GORE-TEX® to deliver the industry’s most innovative and highest performance waterproof, windproof and breathable weather protection.

The GORE-TEX® membrane is completely impervious to rain, sleet and snow, while tiny pores in the membrane allow perspiration (water vapour) to pass through it from within.
