Warmth and mobility.
As part of the The North Face’s Summit Series, the Women’s Summit L3 Down Hooded Jacket bolsters a hardwearing design that can withstand the extremes found on high-elevation summits. This particular jacket packs a punch when it comes to heating your core without weighing you down when you’re on a multi-week expedition through sub-zero temperatures, high velocity winds, and thick snowfall.
Filled with heavyweight goose down insulation, the Summit L3 Down Hooded Jacket is the ultimate high alpine midlayer because it acts as your uniform’s heat-trapping layer, but still collapses down to a sensible size for your backpack. The nylon outer shell is hemmed with stretch knit cuffs for unimpeded range of motion while you’re climbing ice-covered walls and finished with a durable water-repellent that sheds moisture as you can hang tough on a snowy belay. A pre-tensioned hood fits securely over your climbing helmet and face so that the fabric moves with you as you move your neck. And the drawcord that adjusts the hem creates a tight seal around your waist to prevent cold drafts from sneaking in as you set an anchor or break camp.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I ski in the North East, which means discovering a new meaning for being cold. I use this jacket below my shell and above multiple layers. So far so good. Tested in negative temperatures territory and did a good job keeping me warm (with a few additional layers). It’s a slim fit, I personally would have preferred a less body skimming fit. Very solid buy. Thank you to the Gearhead for his help in picking up the right jacket for me!
