The North Face Waterproof Ski Gear Review

posted in: Instruction | 0

In this video I put The North Face Summit Series waterproof ski jacket and pants to the test as my daughter hoses me down thoroughly enjoying every minute.  With Gore-Tex (jacket) and HyVent (pants) protection, I stay completely dry.  This jacket is 15+ years old, still looks like new and performs outstanding with all zippers functioning properly (with a lot of use).  With several venting zippers, five pockets conveniently located and an excellent hood, this jacket rocks. The pants likewise have several pockets, fit great and have a Recco reflector to aid in location during avalanche rescue. The pants are 3 years old and were only replaced as my sharp ski edges sliced a few holes in my previous pants over years of use.  The North Face would have likely repaired then for free or a reasonable cost (they did it free for my friend) but I felt 12 years of life was sufficient and I caused the damage.  Both are extremely warm (when used with fleeces underneath) and have been used at -15 F night skiing.  I highly recommend The North Face for their unprecedented quality and lifetime warranty that is excellent.
