a great jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my 2nd Polartec Neoshell jacket--the best material that is waterproof and breathes. The jacket is very comfortable and handy for everyday wear in our Pacific NW rain. For me (5'9", 165 lb) the body is somewhat large. Also the zipper is too small for an outdoor jacket--would like to see a YKK 5 or 10. Overall, a great jacket!

So does this have a vislon or PU coated zips? I can't remember since I looked at it. Thanks.

No it doesn't - It's a great jacket otherwise but shame on North Face for not PU coating the zip's on a $399 jacket. Neoshell is however an awesome fabric but in my experience is not 100% windproof (not advertised as such).
