Why We Chose The North Face A-Cad FutureLight Bib Trousers: FutureLight technology, ‘Chimney Venting’, excellent protection from the elements.
Chosen by freeriding snowboarder Marion Haerty, the A-Cad FutureLight Bib Trousers from The North Face are made for getting out and about.
Pair them up with the equally excellent A-Cad FutureLight Jacket, and you’re looking at the kind of synced-up outerwear creation that, if it was a plate of food, would surely make the Millwall-supporting Masterchef co-presenter Gregg Wallace cry salty tears of joy. “The flavours just work so well together,” he says. “This is the perfect combination.”
Anyway, let’s crack on with this Ski 100 review shall we?
Built with FutureLight 3L fabric, for added stretch and durability, the A-Cad is made to keep you dry on those powder-hunting days in the mountains. The nanospinning process used in its creation means FutureLight is able to be both incredibly waterproof, breathable, and windproof all at the same time.
This trifecta of properties makes it perfect for those long, interchangeable weather, days in the hills. You know, the ones where you’re getting properly active from sunrise to sunset.
What else? Well, it’s good news for the environmentalists – 100% recycled polyester has been used here in the main body of the bib (75D X 75D). Those who like a comforting feel against their skin will also be delighted to know these bib trousers feature a soft-brushed, warm, tricot backer for a more comfortable ride.
The upper bib consists of 150D X 150D + 90D 96% recycled polyester, 4% elastane. The kick patches, meanwhile, are 420D X 500D 100% nylon.
The bib trousers have been treated with a non-PFC DWR finish.
