- The North Face

The North Face Women's Free Thinker Jacket thrives in the backcountry with skis underfoot. Its fully taped, 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro membrane gives more breathability than standard waterproofing agents for backcountry explorers. Zippers at each underarm provide circulated airflow, and the helmet-compatible hood adjusts for a secure fit. The stretch powder skirt clips into accommodating ski pants by The North Face. There are also internal cuffs with thumbholes for added security, and the hook-and-loop external cuffs work with the drawcord at the hem to seal out any cold drafts. Water-resistant zippers offer extra protection in ways that most ski jackets don't. There are multiple pockets for your phone, goggles, radio, and more. The Recco avalanche rescue reflector may help Recco-equipped ski patrols find you in case of an emergency.


For backcountry adventures in demanding alpine terrain, you need the technically advanced Free Thinker with waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex(R) Pro 3L and equipment-specific pockets galore.


An innovative and technical waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell jacket, The North Face Free Thinker is highly durable and outfitted with Recco and other backcountry features.
