Product of the Year | THE NORTH FACE SUMMIT L3 50/50 DOWN HOODIE | Insulation Jacket
The SUMMIT L3 50/50 DOWN HOODIE pullover from THE NORTH FACE is a completely new kind of down mid-layer. It has been awarded Product of the Year by the judges for its combination of breathability and warmth in such a light and compact package.
THE NORTH FACE has developed its new down mid-layer especially for expeditions to the highest peaks of the world. The SUMMIT L3 50/50 DOWN HOODIE is designed to regulate the body temperature perfectly even in extreme situations, as well as being particularly breathable. This is achieved using a completely new construction: Underneath the very light, air-permeable upper layer runs a series aluminized tubes which are filled with extremely fine, weather-resistant down. This down has an extremely high fill power of 1000 cubic inches. The result is an ultralight, easy to pack insulator with high breathability.
Available from: April 2020
Estimated selling price: 1200 Euro
The 50/50 down construction consists of down-proof, aluminized tubes filled with ultra-fine 1000 down. The upper material is particularly breathable. The result is a light, compact and particularly breathable insulator for extreme mountain expeditions.
"Our Advanced Mountain Kit is designed to enable athletes to climb the world's toughest terrain faster and more efficiently. With this unique system we put the needs of the athletes in the foreground - as with our SUMMIT L3 50/50 DOWN HOODIE. The jacket has a completely new thermal insulation. It offers groundbreaking breathability with less volume. This significantly improves temperature regulation and flexibility."
Scott Mellin, General Manager of Mountain Sports THE NORTH FACE
"The 50-50 down brings state of the art innovation from The North Face. This superlight 1000 PRO filled mid layer will change our view on down insulation. Next generation gear."
