    Think bigger, better, and backcountry-er.

    The Men's Free Thinker Jacket is The North Face's most technically advanced jacket for big mountain skiers and snowboarders. Its fully taped, three-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell  provides waterproof and windproof protection, with plenty of breathability for skinning and hiking. YKK AquaGuard zippers cover nearly every external opening for water-resistant protection, and a polyurethane coating covers the rest of the openings for extra water-resistance.

    The Free Thinker features a stretchy powder skirt that connects to clip-compatible The North Face ski pants for complete coverage. Its hood slides over your helmet or cinches snugly around your beanie, and the internal cuffs work with the adjustable cuffs and hem to seal out bad weather. There are multiple pockets for hands, radios, goggles, phones, and more gear, and the phone pocket is insulated for extra protection.

    The Freethinker is amazing, its kept me bone dry while being tough as hell. I thought for sure I had tear in the sleeve after getting whipped by some tree branches. Not even a mark!

    So North Face has always had its Summit Series lineup which is focused on helping with the ascent of mountains. The fairly new Steep Series is focused on the descent. The Freethinker is a great 3L Gore Pro jacket that is built to withstand a lot of abuse. I have the black in an XL and find it to be a bit large for me. (5'11
