The North Face Verto Micro Down Hoodie Jacket - Men'sis rated3.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byRobert Allasfromspecific use jacketThis jacket is best utilied during moderate stop and go aerobic activity in dry cool or windy conditions. Its ultralight weight makes it a great emergency carry item during backcountry travel or while on belay during multipitch climbing. Think of it as a down vest with the additions of wind resistant breathable wicking arms and hoodie. I've paired it with an r1 hoodie while hiking in sub 30 degree snowy conditions and underneath a shell while snowboarding in 20 degree weather.
Its a specialized garment whose potential isn't realized on city streets or non athletic endeavor.

> The core is warm but not spectacularly so.
> It hangs clumsily if you have anything in your pockets (keys specially, but even wallets or other things) and while I haven't been to the outdoors yet with this, I always need storage in my jacket so that's a major con(pun intended, considering the price tag) in my book.

I should admit I fell for a brand name this time so I feel like a sucker. But then, perhaps I haven't used it in the outdoors yet...and that's where it performs.
