Born in the mountains out of specific requests from The North Face global athlete team for increased performance and breathability in their waterproof gear, FUTURELIGHT™ is the world’s most advanced breathable-waterproof outerwear technology.

FUTURELIGHT™ is a revolutionary way to stay dry inside and out. The North Face tapped into a production method called nanospinning, which creates nanosized fibres that allow superior air permeability while maintaining waterproofness. If feels so soft, it’s like a second skin and has been tested by an elite athlete team in the toughest conditions on Earth.
