Pristine pow fields await.
The North Face created the Men's Repko Hooded Jacket with cold, snowy days spent skiing pow-filled tree lines in mind. Durable, waterproof, and breathable, the DryVent two-layer membrane shields you from rain, sleet, and snow throughout your day, while allowing the buildup of sweaty internal moisture to escape easily when you start to overheat. Light insulation comes to you in the form of 40g/80g Heatseeker throughout to keep you toasty where you need it most on blustery winter days. Then, an attached powder skirt cinches closed to help prevent sneaking snow from getting you wet, while the underarm zippered vents allow excess heat to be dumped quickly when you make it to the top of your bootpack. Adjustable hood and cuffs with thumbholes do their part to batten down the hatches against particularly inclement weather, and a small army of pockets ensure that no on-hill essential is left behind.

- Q & A
Either too cold or too hot.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
It takes about 15-minutes of uncomfortable chill before your body heat “warms” up the jacket. Then it is too hot and the underarm vents are awkward & do not provide any value. I returned the jacket. I have a different, very simple shell from North Face with front vents that is 10-times more comfortable.
