The North Face Speedtour Alpha Jacket
If you like skinning up mountains as much as you enjoy skiing down them, the Speedtour range is for you. The Speedtour Alpha Jacket delivers lightweight breathable insulation thanks to Polartec Alpha.
The Speedtour Alpha Jacket from The North Face regulates the core body temperature during both dynamic and static activities, eliminating the need to shed or add layers. This is thanks to the Polartec Alpha technology, that works to continously release excess body heat before it builds and causes saturation and discomfort. Panels of sweat-wicking fabric on the sides and underarms help to aid the transportation of moisture so you stay dry and your temperature stays regulated. The jacket stows down into its own pocket for easy portability and has two zipped hand pockets and an internal pocket for quick-access storage. The full zip provides maximum temperature control, simply zip up for maximum heat retention or zip down for extra ventilation when things start to heat up. The hood provides extra coverage and protection when you need it.
The North Face Story
Named after the coldest, most unforgiving side of a mountain, The North Face has helped explorers reach the most unfathomable heights of the Himalayas for years. However, The North Face legend ironically begins on San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood, at only 150 feet above sea level. Here, two passionate hiking enthusiasts first founded a small mountaineering retail store in 1966. Soon after, this small shop became known as The North Face and began to design and manufacture it's own brand of technical apparel and equipment.
From there The North Face has grown extraordinarily, and now supplies a wide range of products for hiking, skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing and even ultra and trail runners. Continuing to expand all the time, The North Face pushes the boundaries of innovation so that you can push the boundaries of exploration. There's little telling what the next 50 years will hold for the company. However there is one certainty: The North Face will maintain an unwavering commitment to providing the best possible designs, so that you never stop exploring.
