The North Face Down TriClimate Jacket Reviews
Reviewed by Dave Jones (North Yorkshire) on 2007-01-16:
General comments: This North Face jacket is a great all round waterproof and windproof jacket. When the inner down jacket is zipped into the outer waterproof one the jacket is really warm. Also the jacket does not feel or look bulky when both jackets are worn. From a design point of view this jacket is really smart, I use it both for walking in the hills and for travelling to work (I own the black one). I anticipate that when summer comes I will ditch the down inner and use the outer jacket for protection from the English summer rain.
Pros: The jacket is longer than most, it comes down slightly beneath the waist unlike the majority of outdoor jackets on the market. The hood is adjustable and can fold down into the neck of the jacket. The jacket does not feel or look bulky when the down inner is zipped into the outer jacket.
Cons: The North Face jackets have their zips back to front (ie opposite to usual mens uk jackets). It actually took me a few days to get to grips with the zip being on the right, not the left. Most UK outlets seem to be out of stock of the black jacket at the time of writing this review (January 2007). Perhaps this is a good point for the popularity of this jacket.

General comments: This jacket is awesome and so versatile. I bought it for skiing but it has served me well in Snowdonia where I was walking and cycling. For cycling at -5 ihad baselayer, fleece and the fleece from the jacket under my cycle windproof. Got warm very quickly. The next day went walking and used the whole ensemble and was very warm.
Pros: Do not need to zib the fleece into the waterproof section so can provide double insulation over the zip. pockets in all the right places and very deep. detachable hood. excellent and solid construction.
Draw strings at base.
Cons: Not found any yet. never even realised about the zip thing! but undressing is for someone else to do!!
