This is a classic looking The North Face shell jacket for walking or casual use. It is light and packs down well and perfect for taking in the daypack just in case. The Potent is constructed using the high performing HyVent fabric technology and mesh lining for comfort next to the skin and breathability. There is a storm flap behind the central zip to stop the rain getting in and the Potent has a fixed, adjustable hood with stiffened peak. The zipped pockets are large and should hold all your essentials and by adjusting the cuffs and pulling in the cinch cord, you can create a good fit for protection against the elements.
