The North Face Men's Leonidas Jacket is a waterproof jacket for alpine climbing. The mountains demand layers and climbing requires lots of movement, so naturally the Leonidas jacket has come along to provide waterproof protection that stretches. It kinda blows my mind, but it's true, The HyVent 2.5L, 100% nylon plain weave has four-way mechanical stretch. Feel free to reach out with your arms, do a little stretch, whatever comes naturally as you climb. Even your head stays dry with the helmet-compatible hood and you can open the pit-zips to release excess heat. When you reach the mountain top, puff up your chest and give this yell a go: SPARTAAAAAAAAAA!

SPECIFICATIONS of The North Face Men's Leonidas Jacket
Part of the Summit Series it is waterproof, has a stretchy fabric, and really lightweight. HyVent 2.5L shell gives the Leonidas serious waterproofing that remains highly breathable and the nylon fabric has a four-way stretch for unimpeded mobility on the wall. Polyurethane-coated zippers prevent water from seeping through the underarm vents. Loved the red, exactly what i needed.
