North Face Khumbu Fleece Jacket

northfacekhumbuNorth Face Khumbu Jacket—a midweight fleece layer perfect for wearing under your ski coat or by itself on cool spring or fall days

I have long been a big fan of North Face gear. Sure some people may like the brand more for the label than for actual usage, but I’ve had many a North Face jacket that has performed great in the backcountry and in some pretty intense conditions.

The North Face Khumbu jacket is a midweight layer made from warm and breathable TKA 300 polyester. The North Face Khumbu Fleece Jacket stands fashionably alone or layers up as a zip in compatible insulator. The super durable, anti-pill surface provides years of wear, while a full-front zip with wind flap protects against the wind.

You’ll rest assured with the Khumbu knowing that not only will it keep you warm on your snowshoe trek tomorrow, but you’ll also look great while wearing it. It’s an ideal coat for those who need a lighter jacket for around town and one that can zip under layers to keep you warm during freezing and below freezing conditions.
