For spring alpine missions, turn to The North Face Men's DNP Hooded Jacket. Thanks to the DNP's innovative hybrid construction and PrimaLoft One core insulation, the DNP is able to provide lightweight mid or outer-layer comfort during spring's ever changing weather conditions. Its DWR-coated TNF Apex Aerobic underarms and stretch-woven side panels supply stellar breathability and freedom of movement with minimal weight and bulk. A DWR coating on this jacket's nylon ripstop body helps against light drizzle when you hike or backpack. In addition, its PrimaLoft One insulation offers a high warmth-to-weight ratio and absorbs little water so it dries more quickly and insulates even when wet, which is critical in unpredictable spring weather.
A hidden hem cinch-cord at center-front zipper seals in warmth and blocks out the cold and snow, while a smooth outer fabric finish makes the DNP easy to use as a layering piece beneath your shell. A cozy hood shields your face from the elements while two zippered hand-warmer pockets house your cell, energy goo, or other small essentials. The DNP's zippered hand pocket also doubles as a compressible stow pouch when the DNP is not in use.
