Athlete conceived for an epic expedition, The North Face Men's Meru Gore Jacket in Gore-Tex® Active Shell is a helmet-compatible alpine shell. Built from the most breathable, waterproof and lightest 3-layer fabric available, this alpine climber's jacket is light in weight but heavy on alpine climbing inspired features. These include generous harness and pack friendly chest pockets, huge internal utility pockets for gear and water bottles and tough-grip zones on the shoulders and hips to reduce strap and hip belt slippage. The sleek, helmet compatible full-swivel hood has a formed, fitted and structured brim that is ground-breaking in such a lightweight garment. For daunting alpine objectives The Men's Meru Gore Jacket is an expedition proven Summit SeriesTMshell of choice.
