The North Face Brown Label Gore-Tex Jacket

The North Face Brown Label Gore-Tex Jacket

This North Face Gore-Tex jacket is quite the piece. Full Gore-Tex outer and nylon inner lining. It’s as yellow as a pvc rain coat but rest assured its not. Very stylish and still functional as a windbreaker, the Gore-Tex has lost most of its repellent properties but could be treated with an aftermarket treatment if one so desired.Β  The label boast the remnants of the former owners last name in faded permanent marker. and from the W-L tag it’s assumed a women’s large but it fits like a short mens medium as well (see measurements).

Features include:

  • Two zippered front hip pockets
  • Zippered internal chest pocket
  • The North Face embossed snaps and zip front closure
  • Two-piece hood with compression over the brow and 2.5 inch bill independent of draw string.
  • Nylon/elastic draw cords withΒ  Fastex spring loaded toggles (hood and waist)
  • Velcro wrist closure.

Gore-Tex received its first patent in 1976 and that combine with the brown label would date this jacket late 70s early 80s
