Summary

Pretty darn cool jacket. Nice mid layer, or can be a solo layer on mild days. Great color selections, cool fabrics, good slim fit. This is a must for any fast moving hiker/climber.

Pros

  • Great color combinations
  • Nice, stretchy sleeves and body
  • Great looks, great updated style

Cons

  • Could be a tad warmer
  • Would like to see a bit tougher fabric used on arms

I love this jacket. It is well made, great color options, stretches, and is pretty warm for what it is. There is no insulation in sleeves, which is pretty nice when you don't want a full on puffy. It works really well on mildly chilly days under a shell. I layer it under a full on puffy for real warmth if needed.

So far the materials have held up pretty well to a decent amount of use. The insulation around the neck area is actually quite useful, since the sleeves lack feathers. This thing isn't gonna keep you from freezing at lower temps or high winds, but for a nice, sleek, mildly puffy midlayer...this thing pretty much rocks.

Did I mention it looks bad ass?  :)

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Whether it's a cold day in The Needles or you're gearing up for your first ascent up the Tetons, The North Face Men's Verto Micro Hooded Jacket gives all the warmth and mobility you need. Its Pertex Quantum GL shell makes this jacket seriously featherweight, and the sides, shoulder, and hood have an excellent four-way stretch fabric that moves with you while you pull, crank, and climb your way to the top. Since climbing is hard work and you're bound to get warmed up, FlashDry technology pushes perspiration out of your underarms so you and the jacket stay dry for all-day comfort on the wall. Since down has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio but does pose a problem when it gets wet, The North Face used water-resistant goose down in this 800-fill down jacket so it'll insulate your core while resisting wetness at the same time. Its elasticized hood seals cold gusts from blowing down your body. The North Face added some extra insulation around the collar to keep your neck warm and comfy while you belay. If it gets too warm, you can stuff the jacket in its own pocket and clip it to your harness. Sleek hem and cuff construction reduces bulk and fits the jacket closer to your body so you stay cozy and warm from the bottom of the mountain all the way to the top.
