For spring alpine missions, turn to The North Face Men's DNP Hooded Jacket. Thanks to its innovative hybrid construction and PrimaLoft One insulation, the DNP is able to provide lightweight mid or outer layer comfort during changing alpine 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, and a DWR coating on the nylon ripstop body shields you from light drizzle when you hike, climb, backpack, or ski. In addition, 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 weather. A hidden hem cinch cord seals in warmth and locks out the cold and snow, while the fixed hood flips up to keep your head warm and your brain running at 100% efficiency. The DNP's zippered hand pockets also double as self stowing pockets, so you can pack your jacket up into its own pocket for easy transport when you're not in need of an insulating layer.
