Bringing protection in the burliest conditions.
Prepare for any condition you might come across when you tour Alaska's powder-packed valleys with The North Face Summit Series Men's Kichatna Jacket. The Gore-Tex Pro membrane not only blocks water from outside but breathes like a champ so all your stop-and-go at the resort and in the backcountry won't leave you alternately soaked and chilled. Nylon ripstop keeps the body of the jacket lightweight and mobile, while a higher-denier nylon wraps up the shoulders and underarms for durability where you need it most. Tough grip zones on the shoulders and hips keep your pack in place while you ski across the beautiful landscape, and underarm venting lets out some steam.
The Kichatna also features a helmet-compatible hood that either slides over your helmet or cinches across your head to protect you from snowfall, and the laminated wire brim offers total visibility for your viewing pleasure. You can remove the powder skirt after the sun melts away the powder stashes. The North Face coated the zippers at the vents and chest pockets with polyurethane for durable protection against the wet weather, and the hand-warmer pockets are always accessible even with a pack or harness on.

Wore om MT. WASHINGTON New Hampshire during a snow storm. It was late winter and the snow was so wet. Most of my crew soaked through but not me. This jacket kept me warm and very dry. Love the hood brim made very well keeps out the rain or snow.
