In 1986, Eric Perlman became the first American to climb six north faces of the Alps in a single season. In overcoming tremendous difficulties, he was accompanied all the time by the Mountain Jacket prototype. The North Face brand unveiled the final version of the Mountain Jacket – an extremely durable, yet lightweight, waterproof and breathable jacket designed for expedition guides and mountain professionals. It has quickly become a phenomenon and the centerpiece of The North Face’s outerwear range.

Helped break climbing records, and now still keeps the bar very high. Redesigned with the future of exploration in mind, the Mountain Jacket is an icon that never gets old. Looking at this iconic product with fresh eyes, The North Face draws inspiration from its history, this time building an entire collection with the jacket as its main character.

The Origins 86 Mountain Jacket features DryVent technology to help face tough conditions, and a PFC-free DWR finish to keep you dry in the rain. It is available in Safety Green, Banff Blue and Aviator Navy colors. The collection also includes a fleece Unisex Mountain Sweater, Origins 86 Convertible Mountain Pant and printed T-shirt, as well as accessories and footwear to complete the look and help you stand out from the crowd.
