The North Face Thermoball Hoodie (2014)

£170.00

FeaturesWhat a difference a hood drawcord makes – and that’s what sets the The North Face Thermoball Hoodie apart from others. You also get elasticated cuffs where the elastication is tucked inside so the cuff is neater and potentially less draughty. The two main pockets are happily OS map-sized; but, like most, access is obscured when a hipbelt from a ...

The North Face Alpine Project Hybrid Hoodie (2013)

£170.00

The guides at Glenmore Lodge (the Scottish National Outdoor Training Centre) will be wearing the The North Face Alpine Project Hybrid Hoodie during summer 2014. It has been designed as a versatile layer and it’s made from a thinner version of Gore Windstopper than other jackets in our test, which puts it in the mild spring/summer/autumn bracket rather than being ...

The North Face Alpine Project WS (2012)

£225.00

This jacket is more suited to warmer conditions. It’s also a bit less bulky and lighter in weight than most, although the Windstopper membrane does effectively block out the wind and therefore boost warmth a bit. The brushed lining helps to wick some moisture up into the fabric, but isn’t the softest or warmest against the skin. The fabric is ...

The North Face Super Zephyrus (2012)

£160.00

More of a hybrid than a true insulating number, the The North Face Super Zephyrus falls somewhere between a mid layer and an insulated jacket. It features a combination of Polartec Powerstretch panels and sections of PrimaLoft insulation. Because of this it’s obviously much thinner than the others on test, but then it is meant to sit closer to your ...

The North Face Diez (2012)

£230.00

This is a classic down mid-layer-style of jacket. There’s no hood so it won’t keep your head warm, but it does mean the down is less likely to get wet in a wintry shower. It has a shortish cut, built to fit under a shell layer. The lightweight Pertex shell fabric offers some water resistance, although it can’t be relied ...

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 ...
