New FutureLight membrane by The North Face

New FutureLight membrane by The North Face

Futurelight The North face


Discover the brand new Futurelight membrane introduced this winter 2019-2020 by The North Face. A waterproof, breathable yet extremely soft membrane with the highest durability. One of the most advanced technologies available on the market!



To put this innovative technology to the test, The North Face sent its athletes out on the field for more than 400 consecutive days, in different environments and in different weather conditions, to ensure that Futurelight was able to withstand the toughest conditions.

Here's a little throwback in video to their trip to Svalbard — an archipelago in Norway located in the Arctic Ocean — that our ambassador Mathis Dumas and Thomas Rouault, founder of Snowleader, attended.




THE BENEFITS




Futurelight breathability

GREATER BREATHABILITY


The nanospinning process used on the membrane consists of micro-perforations that provide air permeability without sacrificing impermeability: air flows through the fabric and provides the most efficient ventilation.

Futurelight waterproofing

INNOVATIVE WATERPROOFING


All products feature a 3-layer construction, being the most waterproof design and offering greater durability. The water-repellent coating maintains 80% of the fabric's original performance after more than 80 washings, and offers higher performance than any other DWR treatment. This durable water repellent coating is PFC / fluorene free.

Futurelight softness

SOFT (TO THE TOUCH)


Futurelight fabric is composed of multiple layers of woven fabric, resulting in a thinner and more versatile fabric. Neither rigid nor noisy, this membrane still performs and protects you at its best.



Futurelight durability

PROVEN DURABILITY


The North Face's breathable and waterproof membrane has been put to the test by their team of athletes under the most extreme conditions around the globe. Its durability has been tested from the top of Everest to the first ski slope of the Lhotse. Futurelight has even been tried for 100 days in a row!

Futurelight sustainability

AIMING FOR SUSTAINABILITY


Combining innovations, using recycled materials as well as a PFC-free durable water repellent finish, this fabric is resolutely eco-friendly and responsibly designed. The new Futurelight technology limits the use of chemicals and water consumption during the DWR treatment of the fabric.

According to Thomas, founder of Snowleader


Thomas Rouault Futurelight testThomas, who was able to experience this innovation throughout his journey in the Arctic, states:

"The product is absolutely crazy and ultra-light, with a very special feel, not rigid at all. It's extremely soft and comfortable to wear. In terms of weight, it's like wearing a shirt or t-shirt while having the equivalent of a three-layer fabric that perfectly protects you from the cold and wind. It's really fascinating.”
