I bought this for a winter birding trip to Japan, this included a boat trip to the pack-ice. It can be very cold! With a couple of under layers, it was warm, dry, fitted well, good hood and pockets and wasn't noisey when you were moving. An excellent buy.
Excellent all round jacket
Having owned North Face products before I wanted a winter waterproof jacket for general use. The service from Ellis Brigham was fantastic and the jacket is even better! Despite its lightweight feel the jacket is really warm.
A great light weight warm jacket. Great for both winter sport and everyday wear. Great service from EB.
Excellent insultated jacket
I wore this in winter in the lake district in December and in January and it is excellent in the cold/wet conditions.
Perfect belay jacket and would recommend it to a serious winter walker/climber.
