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.¬† 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 with¬† 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
