2016 The North Face Thermoball Snow Triclimate Parka Mens Jacket Overview by SkisDotCom


Hi, I’m Brigitte and this is Slope Style. I’m here with Bryan from The North Face, thanks for coming in and we’re going to talk about the mens Thermoball Snow Triclimate jacket. I got to say, you guys have really done a great job this year. It’s a snow jacket so it has so many snow features but it also looks awesome, this fabric has like a pin stripe to it and tell me a little bit about the fabric itself. Well the fabric is a totally seam sealed and waterproof HyVent 2 Layer shell fabric and and again like you said, really really nice subtle pin stripes with a texture to it. And it comes in so many different colors. It does, several colors. Is it insulated? It is, so this is a 3-in-1 jacket, right, so it has a shell which is totally waterproof 2 layer shell so it has a drop liner but it also has a Thermoball jacket that comes zipped in. What about on the outside can you point out some features? Absolutely. So you’ve got zippered hand pockets down low which, on top of that, you’ve got drop pockets so you’ve got two entry ways into your hand pockets. You’ve got a waterproof zippered chest pocket pit zips for ventilation, a pass pocket down here at your wrist which also has a goggle shammy included. Check it out! In addition to all of that you’ve got a removable hood so one of the great features which allows it to be a great around town jacket and not just for skiing and snowboarding. So let’s open it up because you mentioned it has Thermoball, what is Thermoball? So Thermoball is a synthetic insulation, it’s a PimaLoft brand insulation that really closely mimics down and down of course is the most premium insulation you can use and this about as good as it gets, as far as synthetic insulation that mimics down. What you have is very small clusters of synthetic fibers that mimic down clusters, making it super warm. Keep you super warm, but it’s light!? Very light weight, very compressible and I think the best thing about synthetic insulation is it’s great in all weather conditions so it has the ability to keep you warm even when it gets wet. I love it. And what about the other features inside the coat? Inside the coat you’ve got a goggle pocket on the side and you’ve also got a powder skirt which is great obviously for keeping the snow out and the warmth in. Wow, it sounds like a great a value, lots of stuff going on in this jacket. That’s the mens Thermoball Snow Triclimate and Bryan, thanks so much for coming in and this is Slope Style.
