The North Face Himalayan Parka and Himalayan Pants are the ultimate outer downs unparalleled in their mobility performance in an extreme cold temperature while achieving safety and comfort for the athletes.

The combination of Kodenshi ProDown for the insulation and Windstopper Insulated Shell for the outer material lets moisture pass through to the outside while keeping the heat inside.
The gear even shuts out strong wind during a blizzard at 8,000 m high. Equipped with an unrivaled wind-shielding and insulation performance, these parkas and pants provide maximum protection without compromising mobility.

The Kodenshi down material used for the inner insulation of The North Face Himalayan Hoodie emits far infrared rays to retain heat. The jacket’s very light and slim construction belies its outstanding insulation performance. Yuichiro Miura used it as a mid-layer for his climb to the top of Mt. Everest.
