Summit FUTURELIGHT™ L5 Jacket
Breathability is more important in alpine environments than anywhere else; without it, a summit bid can quickly descend into clammy—then icy—failure. The Summit L5 protects in extreme conditions but doesn’t require constant delayering to ventilate.
Summit FUTURELIGHT™ L5 Full Zip Bib
Some views have to be earned. They also usually require outerwear that handles harsh alpine elements and move with you toward your goals. The North Face gets that, and these breathable, movement-minded bibs check all the boxes for athletic pursuits above the treeline.
Summit FUTURELIGHT™ Belay Mitt
Warmth, durability, dexterity, and confidence—these mitts eliminate compromises on any of those qualities while you’re handling gear and navigating technical alpine terrain.
