Excellent lightweight jacket
My last North Face Gore-Tex waterproof lasted over 10 years (from when I was 14 to 25!). It eventually died, and I knew that I wanted another North Face waterproof with Gore-Tex. This jacket is perfect!
- PERFORMANCE -
I've been using the jacket for 3 weeks now in different conditions, and it's been great everywhere. I carried it with me in the mountains in Morocco, where it was warm but with a chance of showers. Because of how lightweight this jacket is, it was perfect for popping in my bag just in case.
I then used the jacket dog-sitting on the east coast of Scotland, where it got two daily doses of heavy wind and rain, and this jacket coped beautifully! Fully waterproof (as expected), windproof, and dries quickly.
Finally, I've just taken this jacket on a family get-together. The weather was freezing cold but dry, and again, this jacket was fantastic! Being a lightweight shell, it's not the warmest - however, it's perfect for layering up! I popped a down gilet or hoodie underneath.
- SIZE -
I'm a size 8/10 (athletic build - broad shoulders) and I'm usually a Small or Medium in jackets. This jacket fits perfectly in Small (with space for layering).
- FEATURES -
Hood is great - fits over helmets. Pockets are super slim, which is lovely. There are also additional zip pockets within the pockets, if you want to keep things super safe (e.g. necklaces, rings, etc.).
