The North Face Summit Series™ L5 FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket

Available at Ellis Brigham: the pinnacle alpine shell in The North Face Summit Series™ collection. Perfect for single or multi-day technical, mixed climbing objectives in unpredictable weather. Lightweight, durable and packable.

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.

Made using recycled fabrics, non-fluorinated DWR and production partners with a shared commitment to sustainability, responsible manufacturing, and eco-driven innovation, FUTURELIGHT™ will change what consumers expect from waterproof outerwear gear.
