Great jacket, almost perfect
The North Face gave me this jacket as a warranty replacement for a different but similar jacket (the hood wire kept snapping). After a few weeks of use I can say it is a perfect winter waterproof for walking and hiking. The C-knit inside feels really nice. The only drawback is that there is only one pocket on the chest. Not an issue if you're wearing a pack with hipbelt pockets, but not always ideal for everyday use. You don't realise how much you use hip pockets until they're gone! There are a couple of internal mesh pockets but if you bend down the contents tend to fall out. The gaitered sleeves are brilliant though, and the cut is tailored enough to look sharp but roomy enough to stick a mid-layer underneath. All in all a great jacket for the hills, just one or two practical drawbacks keep it shy of 5 stars.
