North Face Fusion Jacket

Feeling absolutely bullet proof in my “Recco® avalanche rescue reflector” fitted North Face Fusion Jacket, I removed the “Helmet-compatible EZD-tach hood”, tightened up the binding on the boots and headed out for a day exploring The Canyons, in Utah’s spectacular Wasatch Mountains.

The Skicow gods had blessed us with an abundance of over night powder and a morning so full of sun the HyVent™ 2L profaille exterior and brushed tricot lining where about to get a serious workout. Basically, the HyVent™ system provides an extremely effective waterproof and breathable outer layer. Aided by fully sealed seams and Zip integration powder skirt and I was kept dry from the outside whilst my action induced perspiration passed through the materials without condensing into liquid.he conditions on the mountain meant the addition of a mid-layer would be an overkill, but if required the jacket is equipped with snap-in capabilities allowing skiers and boarders to easily add complimentary North Face garments for extra warmth.

As the afternoon clouds rolled in across the rocky exposed peak of Ninety Nine 90, the open “pit-zip vent” had done their job, it was now time to close the hatches and put my trust in the brushed lining of the Fusion.

As with most reputable snow jackets on the market, the Fusion is fitted with adjustable cuffs, lift clips and pockets galore for your phone, media player, goggles, a wrist accessory pocket with goggle cloth and even lined hand warmer pockets for those quick trips to the local bar for the all important après activities. 

Priced around USD$300 The North Face Fusion Jacket is not cheap, but it does everything you ask of it. It allows you to stay dry and keeps you very comfortable and mobile.

I gave it a rating of four moos out of five.
