It retains many of the features for which the original jacket gained its renown, like the waterproof, breathable HyVent fabric outer shell and the premium 550 fill power goose down insulation. The large detachable insulated hood is big enough to be warm with a hat and still has the iconic stud attached faux fur trim. This adds the practicality of defending your face against chill winds as well as looking fantastic. The considerable number of pockets remain too, everything from hand-warming to ski pass and mobile phone accommodating and lots more besides in the gargantuan cargo pockets. Additions include improved tabs on the zips and pockets for easier access even when wearing thick gloves or mitts. The main zip is now 2 way so you can access the lower internal pocket, adjust your trousers, or open the bottom of the jacket out when you're seated without having to undo the whole of the jacket. Fully adjustable with velcro cuffs and drawcords to hem, waist, and hood.
Going to the extremes or going to the coffee shop, there's no better clothing to wear than The North Face.
