- The outer layer is both waterproof and wind resistant.

The North Face Thermoball Triclimate Insulated Jacket for men is a relatively light but highly weatherproof jacket well-suited for resort skiing. This jacket is good for layering, although on its own is best suited for spring-skiing days, and not long exposure to the cold. With thoughtful details, a stylish fit, and good ventilation, this is a well-designed jacket that works for around-town or resort skiing, but is not necessarily suited for more extreme adventures.
