Planning to head to climes that are colder than usual? We think you should be packing Futurelight gear.
The North Face, the outdoor clothing gurus, has unveiled Futurelight, a new breathable waterproof material set to revolutionize the future of technical fabrics. Developed using innovative Nanospinning technology and sustainable practices, it is the most advanced breathable-waterproof outerwear material available.
The nanospinning process used to create Futurelight fabric has allowed the brand’s designers to add unprecedented air permeability into the membrane of fabric for the first time. This might not mean much to you now, but the process creates nano-level holes, allowing for incredible porosity while still maintaining total waterproofness, letting air move through the material and provide more venting than ever before, which comes in handy when you’re working up a sweat in sub-freezing conditions.
With Futurelight technology, The North Face is also setting a new standard in sustainability through new practices in the fabric’s creation process. These advances have allowed the brand to responsibly create three-layer garments through the use of recycled fabrics and production that cuts chemical consumption, all while being produced in a cleaner, solar-powered factory
While testing Futurelight fabric, The North Face team alpinist Jim Morrison climbed and skied three 8,000 meter peaks in 2018, including Everest, Cho Oyu and the world’s first descent of Lhotse
Futurelight fabric will first become available to consumers in The North Face’s Fall 2019 product line and will be featured across the brand’s pinnacle performance collections.
