Bart G.wrote a review of The North Face Free Thinker Jacket - Men's on January 5, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the second TNF Gore-Tex hard shell that I 've had. The first one is about 34 years old, and I still use it, it's had a zipper and snap replaced, and has been to the top of Mt. Hood, and on numerous alpine and Nordic ski trips and climbs. This new Free Thinker is terrific. I checked out similar products from all the major competitors, and chose the Free Thinker above all of them. This is my second season using it as my hard shell for skiing. It is so well thought out. Little design details start to add up when you are living in the jacket. I am very pleased. Build quality is second to none.
