Product Description

The North Face Vortex Triclimate 3-in-1 jacket adapts and protects via the removable liner jacket to keep you out making tracks without having to come inside for extra layers.

3 different ways to wear the system: wear shell jacket and zip-in liner jacket together for maximum protection or wear either piece on its own as weather conditions warrant
Quiet and abrasion-resistant HyVent™ 2-layer coated nylon is completely waterproof, windproof and breathable; fully sealed seams prevent moisture seepage
Mesh body and taffeta lining in sleeves dries quickly and layers easily
Powder skirt with gripping elastic keeps snow out; pant-a-lock system creates a seamless fit with coordinating snow pants (sold separately)
Dual chest pockets, wrist pocket (with goggle cloth), an internal goggle pocket, and an internal media pocket keep your essentials close by
Features zippered handwarmer pockets for chilly fingers; cinch adjustable hem and rip-and-stick wrist cuffs help seal out cold air while retaining valuable warmth
Buddy clip keeps your lift pass close at hand for quick access in line
Fully adjustable, removable hood ensures a weather-blocking, personalized fit
Core zippered vents allow you to regulate body heat effectively
The North Face Vortex Triclimate zip-in/out liner jacket features zippered handwarmer pockets and an internal security pocket
Liner jacket uses Heatseeker™ Eco insulation, 100% recycled polyester fibers, for great warmth that is extremely resilient, water repellent and hypoallergenic
Zip-in attachment system secures liner jacket and shell jacket together while still allowing easy reach-in access to the shell's interior features

PhenomGreat Jacket, all around.

Voted 5/5

I've been using this jacket for several years. It have been a very comfortable, rugged tough jacket. The material is very tough, water and abrasion resistant. I ended up taking out the down insert and only using it in the coldest elements when needed. The pit zippers are a fantastic feature with this! The jacket is a bit on the expensive side though it really is quality.
