A revolutionary way to stay dry inside and out

Introducing The North Face’s most advanced breathable-waterproof technology.

Like most revolutions, it started with an idea. The journey began with alpinist Andres Marin, who was on an expedition in full kit. While repeatedly adjusting his shells to changing weather he asked, “What if there was gear that was alive?” What if one piece of gear kept him dry in the rain, warm in the cold, and breathed when he needed it to breathe?

In order to achieve the desired results, The North Face created new methods of membrane construction, a new lamination process, and ways to customize the entire package for optimized performance.

To create the next-generation breathable-waterproof, The North Face tapped into a production method called nano-spinning, which creates nano-sized fibers that allow superior air permeability while maintaining waterproofness. This new process creates an innovative fabric that can be adapted to meet the needs of any athlete.

This technology is the new standard for breathable-waterproof fabrics. Lighter, packable gear means a smaller pack while breathability means not having to change in and out of hard and soft shells. All of that translates to a more streamlined performance for the best possible expedition.
