The North Face FutureLight


The North Face Summit Series FutureLight


Introduced as 'the most advanced, breathable and waterproof material in the world' FutureLight begins with a new fabric production method called nanospinning, which creates nano-sized fibres that mesh together for incredible air permeability, while still maintaining waterproofness. This is attached to fabrics using a unique lamination process, creating a light, breathable and very soft fabric which The North Face have exhaustively tested, both in independent laboratories and out on the hill.


FutureLight uses recycled materials and non-fluorinated DWR, so it's not just light on your back, it also treads lightly on the environment. It is also super adaptable - The North Face call it 'tuning': meaning weight, stretch, breathability, durability and construction (knit or woven) can be customised during the manufacturing process for specific activities, by increasing breathability and air permeability for fast moving pursuits or increasing rain protection for wet climates.

We travelled to Zermatt for the launch of this incredible new material and gave it a try in the mountains, check out the blog to find out more...
