Waterproof-breathable and built to charge groomers, terrain parks and slackcountry pillow lines, the A-Cad is packed with features for the discerning freerider. It's built with new FutureLight™ membrane technology from The North Face. Nano-spinning technology creates a super-porous membrane – breathable as anything out there. The construction also creates a quieter, softer feel than your typical shell fabric. Helmet-compatible hood, wrist gussets, powder skirt and bib-pant integration keep you dry and happy on ridiculous powder days, and an array of functional pockets should hold everything you need for a day in the frontcountry.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with fully taped seams|
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
