The North Face Apex Bionic

£100.00

A perfect fit and we really liked the snug high collar, which was very reassuring in really horrible conditions. The inner fabric is luxuriously soft – great against the skin – and, although it actually feels quite thick when you pull it on, it stretches well so doesn’t obstruct movement too much. It has a drawcord hem, which traps heat ...

The Nortgh Face Windwall 1

£70.00

The zipper is on the wrong side (right instead of left) which made it difficult to do up quickly. Otherwise fitted fine, and comfortable overall. A simply styled jacket that did the job well. One of the lightest, too. It has two big pockets, which doubled as vents, and a really comfy lining. Keenly priced and looks smart. VITAL STATSColours: ...

The North Face Valkyrie 2008

£170.00

The Polartec Windbloc fabric used in this soft shell jacket is extremely wind- and water-resistant due to a membrane laminated into the fabric. The fabric is also hard-wearing, making it ideal for scramblers and mountaineers who like to rub shoulders with rock. There is also some stretch in the fabric, which is again perfect for mountain use. There are two ...

The North Face Windwall

This windproof fleece from The North Face has a snug, good-length body, warm, medium height collar and cosy, well-cut sleeves. The hem is adjusted with a single-hand drawcord and the elasticated cuffs are spot on. The WindWall polyester fleece fabric feels superb against the skin, providing plenty of insulation when used as a mid-layer as well as wind protection as ...

The North Face Redpoint Jacket

£95.00

This insulated jacket weighs 622g; stows into zipped hip pocket; matt finish rather than shiny; zipped hip pockets are OS map-sized; superb freedom of movement in sleeves; high collar; hem drawcord. But for what you get the weight and price are high; chest pocket is too small for an OS map; elasticated rather than adjustable cuffs; no adjustment at collar; ...

The North Face Windwall 2

£90.00

This windproof fleece from The North Face is a lovely feminine design in a soft fabric. The collar is high, although a little loose, and the deep hood adds style and comfort. The relaxed fit and deep handwarmer pockets are excellent. There’s no collar baffle. Really warm and pretty good breathability, helped by ventilation from the mesh handwarmer pockets. The ...
