The North Face Khumbu Jacket
Price Paid: $20
Like a moron I got rid of my Windwall Jacket a while back. I needed something in the fleece variety and couldn't pass up a clearance steal of $20 for this one. Not as good as my Windwall (looser weave I suspect) but, hey, for $20 who's complaining?
Fabric: high tech fleece material
Fill: i don't know
Price Paid: $100
This jacket is more of a fleece than a jacket and that's why I bought it. It prevents drafts and keeps you warm, yet is lightweight and comfortable, not to mention that it looks good too. I strongly recommend this fleece/jacket to anyone who is looking for one.
