User Review: The North Face RTG Vest (Remote Terrain Gear)
Fabric: Supplex Nylon
Price Paid: B'Day Present
North Face RTG Vest, Mens Large, Black. Designed to zip onto the Heli or RTG jackets. Very limited production item. Received this as a present when I thought I would be learning to snowboard. Never used it, just been hanging in the closet this whole time.
Construction details: Supplex Nylon. Internal adjustable harness to maximize fit of vest when zipped onto the Heli or RTG jackets. Can be used separately from jacket over a fleece insulating layer.
Vest front external: daisy chain across top of chest right, right has webbing to hold an avalanche beacon, left has pen slot, hand warmer pockets, and adjacent to the zipper on both left and right are external napolean pockets accessible by both top zippers with overflaps. Left napolean pocket has an inner mesh pocket to hold a radio, with an opening on top for the antennae.
Vest front internal: left zippered pocket and right mesh pocket.
Vest back: Large flap that can be dropped to hold a snowboard using a top control slip-over tube, when large flap is up it has a flat zipper pocket, bungee cord compression and two daisy chains, and flat insulated pocket for a small hydration system with exit slot.
Weight: pretty hefty at almost 4 lbs.
Embroidered North Face on the left front, RTG on the large flap.
Received this as a present. Looks very useful, but never used it. Eventually sold it.
