The North Face Women's Hooded Elysium Jacket is a Summit Series technical belay-styled mountaineering jacket.
The Pertex Quantum ripstop shell is lightweight but tough enough to withstand abrasions. The 700 down filling has a hydrophobic treatment so it stays dry longer than untreated down to maintain its loft and consequently its insulation. An alpine climbing fit allows an excellent range of motion without an excess of fabric that could snare winds or pointed rocks. The sleek insulated hood swivels with your head for a natural, unobstructed view and is compatible with mountaineering helmets. The wired brim stands proud to keep the weather off your face.
The handwarmer pockets are carefully placed to allow easy access when you are wearing a backpack or a climbing harness. The chest pocket provides quick access to small essentials and the internal pocket is purposely sized to take a water bottle..
Like all Summit Series products, the Hooded Elysium Jacket has been athlete tested and expedition proven.
