When you're caught out by a sudden downpour; when your pace is racing as you scramble up a steep ridge; or when sun and rain are battling for sky space, you'll want to be wearing the Apex Flex Futurelight Jacket from The North Face. And you can keep wearing it - whatever your pace, because it's made with seam-sealed Futurelight - a customisable breathable-waterproof fabric. It's engineered using nano-spinning technology that adds air permeability to a waterproof membrane for the first time. But this three-layer shell doesn't feel - or even look - like a shell. The fabric is soft, tactile and with a slight stretch it delivers all-day comfort. Plus, it has a smooth backer that, unlike traditional shell jackets, doesn't feel cool on bare skin. It features sealed seams, an attached, fully adjustable hood, Velcro cuffs and internal front zip storm flap to keep wind and rain at bay.
