Light, compressible warmth for high-altitude pursuits.
Of all the types of outerwear tops on the market, lightweight synthetic jackets might be the most versatile. The North Face Zephyrus Optimus Hoodie is as versatile as any top we've
seen, with Pertex Endurance protection, PrimaLoft One insulation, and an insulated,
adjustable hood. Perfect for chilly spring days and even summer evenings at high alpine basecamps, this Summit Series hoodie is also the go-to for layering in cold weather or during highly aerobic summit pushes. Super-lightweight, warm, and highly compressible, it's easy to bring along wherever adventure calls.
The Zephyrus Optimus is made with lightweight nylon mini-ripstop face fabric, with Pertex Endurance on the hood, shoulders, and arms, where falling rain and snow strike first. The 20D nylon features an ultra-thin air permeable coating that is both highly breathable, water and wind resistant. This layer protects the PrimaLoft One insulation from the elements so it can maintain its high-loft heat-trapping properties. Stretchy double-knit inner cuffs feature FlashDry technology to move moisture away and dry quickly. The hood is insulated and is attached to a super-high collar for extra coverage in howling winds. The two hand pockets are placed high for harness and hip-belt compatibility, and the Napoleon pocket on the chest is perfect for your phone, radio, or anything else that you want to keep close at hand.

Fly away on my Zephyrus

Flying away on the Zephyrus
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This jacket is great for windy, wet, or chilly days. I wouldn't recommend it for super cold weather, as it's meant for layering in that type of weather. It's perfect for what it is though! It's pretty form-fitting, which makes it feel as if it's tailored for you rather than just being a big, boxy coat. Love all the colors and am seeing lots of people now with this coat on. It's definitely a must have for days where you need an extra layer to keep you warm and comfortable!
