North Face Alpine Project Jacket (Gore-Tex Active Shell) With Video

The Men's and Women's Alpine Project Jacket is part of the new Spring 12 Alpine Project kit. It's an ultra-light, waterproof, breathable shell for summer alpine climbing. Designed for swift, technical, done-in-a-day ascents, it's specifically built for maximum elevation at a minimal weight.

Tested by Hervé Barmasse during the Mont Blanc Stage of his Exploring the Alps Trilogy, the lightness and extreme breathability of the Summit Series Alpine Project Kit helped him when completing a new route on the South Face of Mont Blanc last Summer.
