Here's what other sites are saying:

Sometimes in late Fall when the wind is ripping across the ridgeline and the pelting gropel is horizontally stinging the face, you put on The North Face Men's Potosi Jacket to challenge the extreme conditions just for the fun of it. Howling with glee at old Man Winter, you've thrown up the jackets attached, fully adjustable, helmet-compatible hood (if you were wearing one) and cinched its cords snug against the buffeting wind. Leaning into it like a base jumper in a winged flying suit, the jackets venting pit-zips are locked down, two-way front zipper shut tight, abrasive cuff tabs sealed, and hem cinch-cord short-lined. Nearly gaining lift-off, it's good that the winter jackets two zip alpine pockets, Napolean chest pocket, and internal chest pocket are all zipped closed, so that your lunch and essentials dont have a mind other than your own. As the jet stream seemingly lowers, the Potosi's HyVent Alpha laminated shell that is insulated with toasty 40 g. Primaloft One keeps your core roasting like lounging before a blazing wood box stove. Grinning from ear to ear, the TNF Men's Potosi Jacket lets you play with the fury of Mother Nature and get away with it.
