The L5 Futurelight Jacket is the same climbing gear that daredevil skiers Morrison and Nelson used during their 7,000-foot vertical descent from the slopes of Nepal’s Lohtse Couloir. The jacket features many technical innovations that conventional ski and mountaineering wear cannot match.
At the core of the L5 Futurelight is The North Face’s patented 3L fabric. This is a lot better than Gore-Tex when it comes to strength and durability. The best part of the fabric material is that it is also breathable. You get a fascinating blend of comfort and protection as you conquer the world’s steepest and most treacherous peaks.
The L5 Futurelight protects the wearer against both moisture and the wind. It keeps you dry as you make your way to the top of the mountain. And when Mother Nature decides to douse your spirits, the jacket will keep the water out. You also do not need to worry about strong winds. The Futurelight windbreak jacket will keep your body protected.
This men’s summit jacket comes with a built-in hood. The North Face designed the hood to accommodate any type of mountaineering helmet. It is adjustable and comes with a fully-laminated wire brim. There is also a chin guard to help keep your neck region protected against the chilly environment.
The L5 Futurelight does not skimp on storage options either. There is a pair of Alpine chest pockets to hold some of your valuables during the climb. There is also a pair of mesh drop pockets on the inside surface of the L5. For extra storage, the Futurelight also comes with two bellowed hand pockets. One is on the outside of the jacket, while the other is inside.
There is no reason why you shouldn’t get the Summit L5 Futurelight Jacket. If the world’s daredevil skiers use it, then so should you.
