For The North Face Makalu Ski Jacket, The North Face used the same waterproof technology that they use in rain jackets. This means you can count on it keeping you dry in both snow and sleet. The Makalu Jacket is insulated with PrimaLoft®, which keeps you very warm, but it's so light and low-profile that it's virtually undetectable. In the Makalu Jacket the PrimaLoft is heavier in areas where you tend to be colder, and lightened up in areas where you naturally produce more heat.

"This is brand new for the 2012/13 season. The seams are critically taped."
Answer by Martha (Peter Glenn Staff) on 4/4/2013 - 8:58 am
"Before I saw this response I contacted North Face, and they claim that the seams are fully taped. Is there something specific on the jacket that makes you believe they are critically taped? Just curious, the less moisture the better :)"
Answer by Ryan on 4/4/2013 - 5:11 pm
"Typically if a vendor does not specify, then it is only critically taped (or not taped at all). I checked The North Face website directly before answering yesterday and they only state "seam sealed", they do not indicate that it is fully seam sealed on their website. However, if you spoke to a The North Face rep directly and they told you that it was fully sealed, then that should be the correct information. Thanks for getting back to us with that info!"
Answer by Martha (Peter Glenn Staff) on 4/5/2013 - 9:46 am
"The North Face confirmed that it is fully seam sealed. "
