The North Face Point Five 2010

The The North Face Point Five weighs 544g (size M); Gore -Tex Pro Shell; two large chest pockets; pit zips; stiffened hood peak; great hood fit; good sleeve movement.
But other jackets have more pockets; no external stormflaps over zips; baffle behind main zip is not guttered to funnel water down.

The The North Face Point Five is an excellent general mountain jacket at a good price and a good weight, but others have minor benefits.
