I have found that attempting to reduce footwear weight often causes a reduction in comfort and performance. The Ultra Fastpack has created an outstanding exception to this common problem. With its stability increasing support structure and Cradle Guide technology keeping the bodies alignment in order, the Ultra Fastpack excelled in every terrain with confidence. Ultra light, waterproof, with great traction and support combined to produce a series of shoes which excel. These hikers kept my feet dry in the wettest conditions and kept my knees and ankles pain-free after a 10 hour hike up to an elevation of 4000 meters.
The ultra light, ultra tough North Face Fuse Progressor Shell is the essential piece to bring when conquering new climbing routes or trekking the backcountry. This super light weight piece offers incredible protection and unparalleled agility. Its alpine climbing design produces a technical jacket which moves perfectly with the body, preventing any sort of restriction during those aggressive moments on the rock face. Using a 3-layer Gore-Tex design and FuseForm technology the jacket offers the very best in every aspect. Saving weight is key in gear that might stay in your pack for a portion of the trek. With an average weight of approximately 350 grams and a packable design you won’t notice this piece in your pack; you will notice the comfort that it offers when wearing it though.
