Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The North Face Free Thinker women's jacket boasts weather-nullifying Gore-Tex(R) Pro protection to withstand demanding use and keep you comfortable on big mountains and steep descents. Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer construction delivers excellent waterproof, windproof and highly breathable protection to keep you dry and comfortable, even in harsh conditions. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim. One chest pocket features a water-resistant, insulated cell phone sleeve; other chest pocket has an elastic loop to keep a radio secure and easily accessible. Additional pockets: flap-covered zip handwarmer pockets, wrist pocket (with goggles cloth), internal goggles pocket and internal stash pocket. Center YKK Aquaguard Vislon zipper boasts a new tooth design that's integrated with a polyurethane-laminated tape for excellent weather resistance. Powder skirt helps seal out cold air and snow entry; clip-in tabs let you connect the powder skirt to compatible pants (sold separately) for an integrated, protective barrier. Pit-zip vents let you dump excess heat and provide cooling ventilation; double flap guards resist the elements for enhanced protection. Adjustable hood is compatible with your helmet and offers excellent peripheral vision. The North Face Free Thinker jacket has a drawcord hem and rip-and-stick cuffs to help retain warmth; cuffs have thumbholes to help keep cuffs in place.


Pushing the envelope in the ski world requires clothing that can handle all the ice-scraping, cliff-slapping, and peak-plummeting mistakes that come along with becoming as great as Ingrid Backstrom and Angel Collinson, which is why The North Face created the highly durable Women's Free Thinker Jacket. This Steep Series jacket stylishly protects you from powdery drops and wet weather thanks to the guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection of its three-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell and fully taped seams. Stay connected no matter where you romp in the snow with a phone in the chest's insulated, water-resistant pocket, or a radio in the other chest's pocket when you go deep in the isolated backcountry. An active fit with a feminine twist pulls the Free Thinker close to your body without restricting your mobility nor limiting your layering on frigid days. This jacket features PU-coated underarm zips to let out some steam while you hike up powder-capped peaks. A stretchy powder skirt clips into pants by The North Face for fully sealed protection. The North Face integrated water-resistant zippers over all the external openings to protect you against the wet weather in ways that most jackets fail to do. Inner thumbholes keep the sleeves in place while you twist and torque off of big kickers.
