    Umm not sure

    On the GENTS North Face, the zip is the same as a ladies.. ie the wrong way round to normal.


    The reason for this, is that NF do it so it stops you been able to zip for example a berghaus fleece into the jacket. plus....the main reason is its the USA way of doing it...

    I questioned this on my first jacket.... after having / owning around 7 of them i have got used to it!!

    So it is fine, just made that way so you have to use a north fleece instead of any other fleece? :w00t:

    Also... a lot of American kit is on the wrong way round and even after 7 years it still catches me out and I try to find the zipper on the wrong side!!

    Yep zips are the wrong way round.

    Nothing to worry about, just a bit weird getting used to it at first.

    So I take it that the jacket is real. Also to use the zip in feature you have to use a north face fleece
