Just cause it's cold out, doesn't mean you're going to stop wanting to be outside. If anything, that blanket of glistening snow just makes your favorite trails and streets even more enticing. For lightweight warmth on all of your winter adventures grab The North Face's Apex Elevation Hooded Softshell Jacket. It's 100% windproof and highly water resistant, keeping you covered on blizzardy days when the snow isn't mixed with rain, sleet, and whatever else Mother Nature can cook up. Toasty Primaloft Silver insulation keeps you warm when temperatures plummet, and retains its warmth when wet, giving you insurance when you're facing heavy wet snow, or younger cousins with an army of snowballs.
On stormy days you can throw up the adjustable, insulated hood to keep your head warm and dry, and shove your cold hands into the front pockets for a welcome escape from the elements. The left chest pocket has a media port to thread your headphones inside the jacket, so you can jam out as you trek through untouched snow to the summit or to the store.
