The North Face Pemby Jacket ($279) and Fargo Cargo Pant ($159)
The eye-catching plaid Pemby jacket and Fargo Cargo pant are part of The North Face's Cryptic collection. This line targets a new generation of skiers and riders who are literally redefining the sport every day. (Video: Behind the scenes with U.S. Ski Team member Lindsey Vonn) Both pieces are loaded with features you'd expect from The North Face: waterproof, breathable matierials; strategically placed zippers for ventilation and temperature control; and smart pockets for everything from a goggle wiping cloth, to an MP3 player, to your ski pass. The Cryptic collection is for the set who covets TNF tech and heritage, but has distinctly different, and younger, sensibilities and style than their parents.
