- HyVent shell jacket has a waterproof breathable membrane that keeps you dry from wet weather outside, while still allowing sweaty vapor to escape underneath the shell
- Seam sealing adds to overall wet-weather protection by eliminating the potential for moisture to enter at fabric interfaces
- Small features like a fixed hood (shell), adjustable cuff tabs (shell), and a center stormflap (shell) add to overall comfort amid harsh weather
- Fleece liner jacket can be worn alone on mild days or it can be zipped into the shell to serve as an insulating layer
- Zip-in compatibility allows you to use a variety of The North Face shell or insulating layers with either the Triclimate's shell or fleece layer

I'm headed to Northern Alaska this summer...
I'm headed to Northern Alaska this summer with a research team. They said to expect temps between 32-45 F with lots of wind. I will be doing a lot of hiking across the tundra and then standing around very still with a GPS. I need to stay cool while I trek and warm while I measure. Can you recommend a good jacket?
You are probably in Alaska as I write this, but I suggest a good layering system with a hard shell outer layer, fleece or merino mid layer and merino or polypro/polyester base. If you can afford it, go with the merino.
I have had good success with the Mountain Hardwear Drystein jacket as an outer layer, but there are other good, possibly even better, ones out there.
Arc'teryx also has some very good choices for outer shells, but tend to be more expensive, though great quality. The North Face also has good outer layers, as well.
For merino layers, I have found Ibex and Icebreaker to be the best, with Smartwool very close behind.
You should be able to find good synthetic layers if that works better for you. Most of the major brands make a good fleece and Under Armour has good base layer pieces. Best of luck!
Gave this to my Dad for Christmas he likes it.

I'm confused about what I should pick S size or M size
please recommand suitable size for me
You will probably be okay with either one, though the jacket may be loose if you get the medium and the sleeves too short if you get the small.
There is a sizing chart that may help you up near the price. Best of luck!
What temperature range is the jacket best...
What temperature range is the jacket best suited?
That is a very subjective question. If you were just standing around and tend to run cold then I could see being chilly down in the 40s. However if you are engaged in a high output cardio activity like skiing, or touring, or snowshoeing, you'd be fine a ways below there. So in short, it depends.

I am 5'7" with broad shoulders. This is the reason I am sending a question before I purchase. Should I look at getting a L or XL?
Hey Michael Ordonez,
Thanks for the question. With your height and how The North Face usually sizes up their outerwear, I would go with a Large in this case as an XL would probably be too much in the length.
North Face Phere Triclimate jacket.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Took this jacket skiing. Great jacket excepting you really only have 4 decent zip up pockets, 2 exterior and 2 in the fleece with a couple pouch type pockets inside the fleece. Could do with a sleeve and chest pocket for small stuff. Other than that, great jacket. Kept the cold and ice/water out. Jacket breathes well and the fleece is really easy to remove, put back in. Really does work as a tri-climate jacket. Very versatile.

it is possible to purchase directly from Taiwan, and send by air, how much will cost the freigth? many thanks
no one answer me, where is the customer services to reply this very answer?
No oriol, you need a freight forwarder. Try myus.com
Bc can't ship The North Face outside the US. Also, for future reference your best bet for a quick answer to shipping and/or stock questions will be to initiate a chat with a BC rep using the link at the top of the page. Best of luck!
For a triclimate jacket this jacket does what it says it would. Upon arrival, it felt so light I had high sense of doubt it'll keep me warm. Fortunately my Tahoe trip was in couple of days, time to put it to a test. Sure enough, the temperature showing 15 degree on my cars dash, snow storm brewing, went out feels nothing except the coldness in my face. I guess modern days technology is so advanced that a light weight jacket can handle bad weather no problem. Btw the guy above me who left the comment is an idiot who probably didn't own this jacket, typical.
When ordering, should I order a size up...
When ordering, should I order a size up or down? For example, typically my weight lifting son wears L but should I order him an XL?
I honestly think they're true to size. My dad is 5'8" and about 180 lbs. He's got a bit of a belly but he normally wears his jackets loose so I got him the large and it looked like what a large should fit. If your son is much taller, I would opt for the XL since the length is a bit short.

Temperature range can tend to be pretty subjective, but you should be set with this jacket in those temps.

Does this jacket have the ability to have other North Face fleece liners zip into it? Like the Denali fleece jacket or a similar heavier fleece?
Yes, ANY of the Denali's should zip in.
