In some of our previous reviews and selections you will find a considerable number of jackets by The North Face and even in some of our most recent pieces on fabric technologies, The North Face’s very own DryVent is included.
For those unfamiliar with DryVent, it is a breathable and weatherproof fabric technology, which is also quite durable and wears very well.
It is made as a multi-layer membrane, which allows air and moisture permeability, while preventing the elements from getting inside the jacket.
Jackets that are made of DryVent work great for those living in areas where the weather is unpredictable, as they protect against rain or snow, while also remaining breathable so that you won’t overheat should the temperatures rise unexpectedly.
For this selection, we have picked 8 jackets that utilize DryVent to keep them shielded from the weather, however not all 8 are from The North Face, as you will see.
There are two options from Timberland, a well-known brand, which has collaborated with The North Face into launching a jacket collection, two of designs of which will be included here, so let’s take a look.
