Where to Buy

Stay dry this winter when you bomb the biggest, baddest, and wettest mountains in The North Face Men's Sickline Jacket. Developed by big-mountain droppers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Xavier de Le Rue, this jacket keeps you dry when you slice through knee-deep powder thanks to the guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection of the three-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell. Even though both these professionals use helicopters to get up the mountain, they didn't forget how they initially hiked up by foot, so they integrated underarm zippers so you can keep your cool during your upward hike. And the chest pocket has a radio-holder elastic so you can stay connected, even in the isolated areas of Alaska. An active fit gives the freedom of movement you need to tuck and twirl off backcountry kickers, and it leaves room for layering up on frigid days. The Sickline's hood slides over your helmet or cinches tightly across your head to protect you from heavy snowfall. The powder skirt clips to The North Face pants to completely seal out the snowy weather. Water-resistant zippers protect you from wet weather in ways that most jackets don't. Thumbholes keep the sleeves in place and warm your palms up in colder temps.
Stand far above the tree line and choose your line with care with the rugged protection of this lightweight jacket developed by TNF big-mountain skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and snowboarder Xavier de la Rue. The ultra-durable 40D Gore-Tex Pro 3L exterior offers enhanced waterproofing and windproofing to protect the upper body and allow you to perform longer in remote mountain zones with harsh, unforgiving conditions. An exterior pocket is purpose-built to secure your radio while an interior water-resistant pocket preserves your cell phone s battery life. The stretch powder skirt features clip-in integration to seal out wind, the cold, and moisture, whether you re skiing in whiteout conditions or you wipe out on the slopes. If an avalanche is triggered, the nearly weightless embedded RECCO transponder in this jacket can be pinpointed by detectors carried by the rescue team.
