The North Face Debuts A Breathable Waterproof Fabric With FUTURELIGHT

Sep 27, 2019

Category: Gear

The world of technical outerwear is everchanging, and with the industry’s shift toward adaptive, dependable fabrics, The North Face has decided to reevaluate the way that they create clothing. Now, the monolithic company’s innovative research has finally decided to bear fruit.

While The North Face’s unique FUTURELIGHT fabric was, in fact, revealed at the start of 2019, the implementation of said textile has been relegated to a life of whispered mystery. Some eight months later, the company has finally broken its silence, announcing that it will be releasing three new styles alongside its anticipated Fall/Winter collection. To headline, the L5, Purist, and Flight jackets will include the brand’s lauded FUTURELIGHT fabric, which boasts an adaptable, waterproof membrane that’s more breathable than previous iterations; thanks, in large part, to nanogaps formed within the garments’ polyurethane fiber fabric. Each jacket will be catered toward its own medium, including hiking, skiing, and running, and will hit Japanese retailers on October 1.
