The North Face Terra 65 (2014)

£125.00

The The North Face Terra 65 is a 65 litre sack that’s made from tough materials and has a good, stiff back to allow weight transfer to the hips via the supportive hipbelt. The back length can be adjusted by raising or lowering the shoulder straps along a rubber strap, while the hipbelt fins can each rotate independently to allow ...

The North Face Verto S4K GTX (2013)

£230.00

The colour and style of the The North Face Verto S4K GTX 's upper give an impression of a more serious climbing boot than an all-rounder. At 1766g (size 11) it’s relatively light for its class, yet has a feature set and performance that makes it ideal for year-round mountain scrambles and easier mountaineering. The upper is synthetic mesh with ...

The North Face Point Five VG (2013)

£270.00

The North Face’s Point Five VG is built around Gore-Tex Pro, and in our test it was the lowest-priced Pro jacket we received. The design is fairly standard with two chest pockets, pit zips and hood, but all these features are very well-designed. The body is not as short as some, but you can get longer jackets, so it is ...

The North Face Casimir 27 (2013)

£100.00

A new pack designed for fast and light backpacking, the The North Face Casimir 27 is built around a gender-specific back system that is adjustable in length: shoulder straps can be raised up the pack. The back system gets top tensioning straps and a very wide removeable hipbelt. There is just about enough stiffness in the back to prevent poorly ...

The North Face Verto S4K GTX (2012)

£230.00

A new boot from The North Face, the Verto S4K GTX is designed for ‘serious alpine challenges’, according to the manufacturer. The Verto is very light at 1766g (pair, size 11) for its class – that is, being stiff enough to use with crampons. But get it on your foot and the toe is a little bendier than boots at ...

The North Face Radish Mid Layer (2012)

£155.00

A very durable option for hard mountain use, the The North Face Radish Mid Layer has reinforced shoulder and hip zones for increased protection from rucksack straps and weighs a very reasonable 410g (size UK12). The material is a wind-resistant, polyester hard-face stretch fleece with a micro-check brushed inner side (think tiny grid-like squares of fleece) that trap air to ...

The North Face Gold Kazoo (2012)

£180.00

The budget price of the The North Face Gold Kazoo doesn’t mean there’s a lack of features or performance. The bag lofts (fluffs up) very well when unpacked and it has trapezoidal baffles to help stabilise the down fill. Unusually the bag also has Climashield synthetic insulation pads on the base where your body comes into contact with your sleep ...

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 Patrol Glove (2012)

£90.00

The North Face Patrol Glove on first appearances looks like many other gloves in this test. But slip it on and it has a noticeably closer fit than the others, even though it is packed with Primaloft insulation and boasts a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. The closer fit helps with the dexterity, but as with most gloves that are well-insulated the ...

The North Face Alteo 25

£80.00

A great looking pack with lightweight yet tough ripstop fabric and a big bouncy trampoline of a back system. From behind it looks a little squat, with fairly broad shoulders, but once loaded up on your back it feels fine and stays secure without hanging too far off. The back system is one of the best at keeping the air ...

The North Face Vindicator GTX

£89.00

Soft, suede uppers, and a fairly wide last make these feel like old friends straight from the box. An excellent lacing system makes it easy to achieve a great fit across the whole foot, and a locking eyelet by the tongue makes them incredibly easy to whip on and off. The Vibram sole has quite an aggressive tread pattern, which ...

The North Face Stretch Softwool Quarter zip base layer

£65.00

The Stretch has the typical soft and stretchy feel of merino wool, and it performed with all the usual characteristics to make a very functional, versatile and comfortable base-layer that is hard to beat. The fit is casual and the fabric provides a useful amount of insulation when needed, yet never really feels too hot. It has a high collar ...

The North Face Terra 30 2009

£80.00

The The North Face Terra 30 is a stable, indestructible rucksack with all the features a hill-walker needs. Although second heaviest in the test at 1756g, it still wins. If you take out the 316g back stiffener and 85g rain cover, it weighs 1355g, which isn’t bad for a bombproof bag with 36 litres of space, extra comfy hipbelt, unobtrusive ...

The North Face Meridian Convertible

£45.00

A great fit – ticking all the boxes at the waist, with belt loops, elastic panels and a drawcord. The nylon fabric is very comfortable against the skin, and the zips used to remove the legs are so well designed that you don’t really notice them when walking. Wind-resistant and incredibly quick-drying, these are ideal for most UK hillwalking conditions. ...

The North Face Windwall

£70.00

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 W TKA 200 Full Zip

£50.00

This midweight women’s fleece from The North Face is very, very comfortable – it might even feel like wearing a second skin! It has a streamlined, contoured fit with close-fitting arms and a soft, high collar to bury your chin into. It’s light, too, and warm, and although the cuffs don’t have elastic, they pull up easily. The huge handwarmer ...
