Gore-Tex PacLite/388g (large) Pit zips/Dual storm flap/Adjustable, rollable hood/Twin chest and zipped sleeve pocket/The North Face 01539 738882, www.thenorthface.com.
A multi tasker that whilst not the lightest application of slimly taped PacLite fabric benefits from OS devouring front pockets and ample venting. Panel construction with tougher denier fabric at abrasion points, the sleeves provide roomy articulation. What’s given away in minimalism is made up for with a cut acceptable outside of a biking field. Also in green, red and blue finishes come spring.
