:? Essential for hiking / skiing or any other genuine outdoor pursuit!

You'd be much better off with Paramo in this price range.

I think your probably right about Paramo - although the weatherproof variants seem to be substantially more than this. I use this jacket more as an 'all-rounder' but it may not be to everyones taste :roll:

North Face are lazy *******s I bought the same jacket 10 years ago, but mines made out of HyVent, same colours, same pockets, same lining. Mines got a better storm adjustable hood on it.:x

Wow cold in here! Lucky I've got a warm jacket

Is it just me or are North Face becoming a bit Naff Face. Theyre just too common now?

I think the problem started with all the shoddy copies on ebay and carboot sales. Personally love TNF stuff, got a Goretex Pro Shell (Free Thinker II) and its fantastic though its top of their range (RRP around £400 not that I paid anywhere near that), used by lots of ski school staff and rescue organisations.

Is it just me or is there something a bit spooky about people who know the model name and part number of a jacket they bought years ago and even who uses them?

Fact is, once these brands become fashion items you pay 30% for the goods and 70% for the brand.

It may be a good jacket but £140 - come on!
