TNF Cipher Jacket Named Gear of the Year

The North Face Cipher Windstopper Jacket has been awarded the prestigious Gear of the Year Award by Outside magazine.

Outside’s Gear of the Year Awards are featured in the annual Outside Buyer’s Guide, which presents critical reviews of the year's best outdoor and adventure gear. Out of more than 400 outdoor items, including, but not limited to, footwear, tents, sleeping bags and apparel, the top products are awarded Gear of the Year based on their features, technology, price and overall performance.“We were impressed with the smart mix of Gore-Tex Windstopper and Apex [softshell] fabrics together to create such a high-performance, well-priced jacket,” says Dennis Lewon, senior editor at Outside magazine.

“We are excited to receive this award from the gear experts at Outside,” says Jim Gerson, vice president of research, design and development for The North Face. “The Cipher is a fantastic piece that demonstrates the in-depth research and design that we pride ourselves on.”

The North Face Cipher Windstopper Jacket is crafted of Gore-Tex Windstopper fabric, boasting a wind permeability rated at 0 CFM, and Apex Aerobic four-way stretch with DWR, the lightest and most breathable of The North Face soft shell fabrics. The Cipher features an athletic fit, complemented with reflective safety logos, an adjustable, attached hood, two alpine pockets and hem cinchcord. Available for men and women, it is the ideal piece for aerobic and adventure activities.

In addition to the Gear of the Year Award, The North Face Terra 40 backpack and Cat’s Meow sleeping bag both received Outside’s Killer Value Award, for great technical detail at a competitive price.
