The North Face Summit Series
The World’s Finest Alpine Equipment Reimagined
The North Face does things because they are difficult, not in spite of it. The 2015 Summit Series collection represents the world’s finest alpine equipment, reimagined. Designed as the most elite equipment for exploring the world’s harshest environments, this pinnacle line is crafted on three guiding principles: Respect. Inspire. Evolve. Respect for their athletes and the extreme environments they play in. Inspiration through extremely simple, yet purposeful design that leaves nothing in excess. And a commitment to evolution by introducing innovative technologies that redefine the cutting edge of mountain sport.
The 2015 Summit Series includes six unique layers:
Summit L1 Top & Pant – Featured in the 2015 Outside Magazine Buyers Guide as, “The Superman of the technical tights world,” the L1 weaves together nylon, polyester, and elastane (for the pants). Weaving the fabrics together minimizes seams thus reducing weight and potential rubbing spots.
Summit L2 Jacket – Polartec hardface fleece ads durability on this one-piece FuseForm construction. The Summit L2 Jacket also includes reflective seam tape for our low light and nighttime adventures.
Summit L3 Jacket – The L3 features 800 Fill RDS Down (certified by Control Union) that weighs less than a pound. Thanks to FuseForm construction this piece has less seams to eliminate weight and increase durability. The L3 was recently featured in Outside Magazine’s Winter Buyers Guide as, “Extreme insulation without the weight penalty.”
Summit L4 Jacket – ThermoBall powered by PrimaLoft makes the Summit L4 Jacket the warmest synthetic insulation in The North Face lineup.
Summit L5 Shell & Shell Pants – The North Face uses their most breathable DryVent 3L fabric for the Summit L5 Shell. It is waterproof, seam-sealed, and includes FuseForm construction to give extra durability where it is needed.
Summit L6 Jacket – Insulated with responsibly sourced, Control Union certified, 800 Fill down the Summit L6 Jacket is meant to keep you warm in extreme conditions. Welded baffle construction cuts down on the weight and eliminates cold spots. Features include interior stash pockets, internal cuff with thumbholes, and polyurethane coasted chest and hand pockets for added protection.
Most people prefer comfort in their lives, forgetting that difficulty is actually what nourishes the human spirit. Risk. Fear. Doubt. The unknown. Now we’re beginning to feel the beating heart of experience. It’s not necessarily the way everyone would choose to live. But it’s our way. #theɹǝɥʇoway
