Voted 5/5

After eyeballing all the North Face Summit Series stuff, and not wanting to pay several hundred dollars for a technical jacket, I opted for this. The feature which really drew me to this was the pit zippers, and the air shield technology making it windproof yet breathable as well. I've found far too often that while ascending some summit somewhere during cooler conditions, I've sweat so much that I hit the top, stop for a bit, then freeze. This jacket helps eliminate that problem. Great build quality, light and stretchy.
