The North Face Mens Zaneck Parka

Better than the McMurdo?

Ordered this after having owned the heavier and more expensive McMurdo Parka. That was filled with Goose down, whereas this uses the synthetic 'heatseeker' insulation. It's lighter and a slimmer cut, and has a ribbed cuffs that the McMurdo doesn't, which is a bonus. This is as warm in the cold as the McMurdo from my experience but as it's lighter it's easier to fold and stow away. Get it!

The North Face Mens Thermoball Hoodie

Inexplicably warm

Lightweight and good looking, yet incredibly warm. Thermoball insulation ensures maximum warmth, but minimal bulk. Ideal for chilly commutes or trail walking. Packs down into it's own pocket, so it's super versatile too. I love the aster/navy colourway too, looks great with jeans! Size medium works for me, but may be a little restrictive for some.

The North Face Mens Gotham Jacket

Great all round jacket

Firstly; E Outdoor, I have not ordered from this company before and I am pleased to say I have received the best service during and after my purchase in a very long time. So irrespective of product I RECOMMEND you purchase from e-outdoor. Ok so to the product. Great jacket, very very warm, superb quality and versatile. I would suggest ignoring the size guide or going one smaller than it recommends (it told me large, which was too big; medium is perfect) The cut has been referred to as odd in other reviews, but I find it is spot on. If you are looking for a warm, versatile jacket that oozes quality, I would suggest buying this without hesitation

About The North Face

The North Face brand breakthroughs

The North Face is constantly outdoing itself and its competitors by creating genuinely revolutionary insulation and technology for its outdoor clothing. The North Face jacket range is especially well-known thanks to the unwavering quality, constant innovation and functionality, making them ideal in almost any environment. These breakthroughs include:

The North Face - Down range

This North Face jacket range is one of our best-selling items, thanks to their incredible ability to insulate body heat in cold environments. Ideal for hikes in cold and mountainous areas, the down jacket range is not only incredibly effective at insulating, but is also extremely lightweight and easily compressed to a small size for portability.

The North Face - Triclimate range

Waterproof, breathable and, most importantly, snug and warm. The North Face Triclimate range includes a 3-in-1 solution to insulation, including a removable waterproof jacket, and toasty fleece that can be worn together or separately. The Triclimate range is perfect for cold environments and snow, and one of our most popular items.

The North Face - Thermoball range

One of The North Face’s most recent breakthroughs, Thermoball jackets offer incredible insulating qualities even when wet, while being just as affordable as their other jackets. The Thermoball insulation is an ideal choice for almost any environment, from cold hikes in the mountains to more casual walks in winter. It’s extremely water-resistant, too, offering incredible insulation even when wet!
